The Flintstones

by Mark Russell and Steve Pugh

From Amazon:

Hanna-Barbera has created some of the most recognizable animated characters of all time. As part of DC Comics’ re-imagination of cartoons like SCOOBY-DOO, THE FLINTSONES, JOHNNY QUEST, SPACE GHOST, and WACKY RACERS, these new series will be infused with modern and contemporary concepts while keeping the heart and soul of the classic animation.

Tobiah Says:

We’re joined on this episode by the Unflappable Kirbotron2000, talking a book that is far better than it has any right to be. Seriously, this one is a strong contender for my comic book of the year, which is a honor so high I don’t even give it out on a yearly basis. This comic is an existentialist masterpiece, and you should read it immediately.

On the next episode we’ll be reading Habitat, by Simon Roy.

Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Kirbotron2000.

Art by Gabriel Hardman
Color Art by Jordan Boyd

From Amazon:

Arthur McBride’s regime has fallen. His planet has been plunged into chaos, his story shrouded in mystery, until reporter Croger Babb discovers the journal of Arthur’s cousin, Maia. Inside is the violent, audacious, hidden history of the legendary freedom fighter. Erased from the official record, Maia alone knows how dangerous her cousin really is, and what truly happened to bring him to power.

Tobiah Says:

We’re joined on this episode by the Inimitable Bryan May, who was kind enough to pitch in on giving Joe some flack. Much appreciation to Bryan for that.

On the next episode we’ll be reading The Flintstones (2016).

Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Bryan May.

Kill or Be Killed, #1-12

Story by Ed Brubaker
Art by Sean Phillips and Elizabeth Breitweiser

From Image:

The darkly twisted story of a young man forced to kill bad people, and how he struggles to keep his secret as it slowly begins to ruin his life and the lives of his friends and loved ones. Both a thriller and a deconstruction of vigilantism, KILL OR BE KILLED is unlike anything this award-winning team has done before.

Tobiah Says:

We’re back after a brief delay, and we’ve got a special guest. This being us there is, of course, some wild disagreement between Joe and Tobiah about this book. So we’ve brought Kenny in tonight to play the role of Brant and valiantly hold the middle ground.

For the record, late in the episode Joe confuses Bernie Madoff with Bernie Goetz, who ironically has more in common with the star of this book than his target.

On the next episode we’ll be reading Invisible Republic, Vol. 1-3.

Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Kenny Wisdom.

On this episode Tobiah and Frank discuss their experiences at Rose City Comic Con, which was held in Portland, Oregon on Sept. 8-10, 2017.

A brief correction: Tobiah states that he co-hosted a panel with Kate; her name is actually Sarah. He feels very ashamed of this error.

 

Our hosts for this episode are Tobiah Panshin and Frank Suttile.

When young adventurer Laios and his company are attacked and soundly thrashed by a dragon deep in a dungeon, the party loses all its money and provisions…and a member!

But Laios comes up with a brilliant idea: “Let’s eat the monsters!” Slimes, basilisks, and even dragons…none are safe from the appetites of these dungeon-crawling gourmands!
