It’s finally Friday, and just like every other Friday, we know you’re damn well ready to get the weekend started off right with what else, a brand-spanking new episode of the internet’s most mediocre podcast of them all! Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as the discuss all sorts of good stuff. From the true struggles of middle class 80’s kids and video game trolls to spirited and uninformed debate on the comic book continuity, it’s an episode for the ages! So, do some jumping jacks, widen your doorways, and let it all hang out because it’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
This week I return to you to finish up my review of Brad Meltzer and Rags Morales’ Identity Crisis. Just in case you missed last week, here’s Review #1. I know you wanna know how it ends! So clicky, clicky.
I have mentioned on the show a couple times now that I am on a mission to educate myself further in the world of Comic Books. I wanted to name this column Karen’s Komic Korner, you know just to be both cheeky and irritating at the same time, until it was quickly pointed out that naming my comic reviews “KKK” was not the best idea. Damn the Klan and the Kardashians for ruining purposeful misspellings in the name of alliteration. Hmph! On a side note, I am happy Ramses’ last name starts with a “G” because my middle name is Kristine.
Back to the topic at hand. At the urging of friend of the podcast and my comics guru, “The David”, I fired up comiXology and purchased Identity Crisis #1… by the end of the evening I purchased all 7 issues and was immersed in a part of DC’s world that I never knew existed.
With the meteoric success of The Walking Dead and the subsequent weekly zombie vacuum left on Sunday nights, we here at the podcast (and most everyone else out there in pop-culture land) can’t seem to get enough of the rotting, cannibalistic dead come to f*ck up the humdrum routine of society. Joining us this week are two very special guests – actor/writer and voice of Red Dead Redemption’sBill Williamson, Steve J. Palmer as well as comic artist Guy LeMay, creator of Z-Blade XX,Zombie Headhunter, and The Entity Knights – as we discuss zombie movies, games, and the genre in general. Stock up on supplies, shine up your bullets, and pay attention because you’re going to want to change your zombie apocalypse plan after listening to this week’s episode of Monkey in the Cage!
As both a Mom and a Geek I just love these pieces by Charles Paul Wilson III. Winnie the Pooh meets heroes from both the Marvel and the DC Universe. If I would have found these a year ago they probably would have been the starting place for our son’s nursery!
