Three Comics You Should Be Reading

Comic Book Guy

Let’s be honest. No matter how much you love comics, there’s no way you’ll ever be able to read them all. There’s just far too many and you’d have to sell pretty much all your organs on the black market to be able to afford them.  So what I want to try and do with this article, which I hope to be able to do on a semi-regular basis, is to keep people up to date on some of the awesome comics out there so they can give them a shot themselves.  Some will be new comics, some will be old comics, but all of them will be comics you should be reading.

Episode 58 – TV Shows That Were Cancelled Too Soon

We all know that feeling.  It starts with the previews and the teasers during re-runs.  That new show, with those actors you like, is about to come to that network you watch.  You can’t wait to tune in, and when you do, it’s one of the greatest things you’ve ever seen.  You’re vested in the story, the characters, everything.  Nothing can possibly get better than this, IT’S AMAZ… WHAT!?!  CANCELLED!?!?!  Join us this week as we reflect and mourn on some of our favorite TV shows that were sent to an early grave by the TV and network execs.  Don’t get too cozy, have a plan B lined up for that time slot, and whatever you do don’t let FOX premiere your as we talk cancelled TV shows on a new episode of Monkey in the Cage.

Episode 48 – How Entertainment Influences Itself

Do you ever find yourself watching a movie, reading a book, or playing a game and thinking to yourself, “This has happened before”?  Of course, we all have?  But, this form of entertainment deja vu isn’t because you’ve decided to re-watch, re-read, or re-play.  Join us this week as we discuss the phenomenon of entertainment influencing itself, for better or for worse.  From classic literature to classless television, it seems there are no bounds.  Dust off that tome of Shakespeare, spike up that blow-out, and whatever you, don’t feed the Honey Boo Boo as you settle in for a certified original episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Certified Nerdified Rants with Contributor Kevin

A segment where Kevin Smith goes on and on about a subject he seemingly takes way too seriously that no one else likely cares about or has given any consideration.

Today’s Issue: The Twilight Saga

 

With K-Stew and R-Pat’s recent falling out and the final Twilight film coming out this November I thought it time to put fingers to keyboard on a major frustration of mine, The Twilight Saga. This rant is not likely going to be what you think it will, I’m not leaping atop a pedestal to proclaim why I loath Twilight, quite the opposite, I’m here to describe a seething love\hate relationship with the product. You see, I don’t outright hate these books. In fact there are tiny gems of highly intriguing lore peppered throughout the novels that draw me in just long enough for the attention to shift back to the core storyline I had little to no interest in.

Reading these books was highly frustrating for me, many times I had my interest peaked for just enough of a minutia, before ripping me away once again into the masochistic relationship at the story’s core, to keep me on board until the next interesting paragraph or page. In any event, today I’m going to discuss some of the items I wished Stephenie Meyer had spent a little more time on. Hell, she could have easily taken out about 50-60 paragraphs where Bella describes how much she adores Edward to make room. By the way, this may be unnecessary but SPOILERS AHEAD.
