EP 222: We3


Dad reads We3 and is not satisfied with Grant Morrison’s story but loves Frank Quitely artwork. Patrick thinks this is a film pitch made into a comic.

Patrick does not even bother telling Dad about the long history of comics being used as Intellectual Property being pitched for film scripts.  Dad has an issue with the lack of depth of the book and the very unclear narrative.  

Patrick and Dad come to the conclusion that the comic may have been best told through Quietly’s art with the animals being the readers only view the world…..but what do they know?   

Treat is nothing.

Hear Patrick on the Wild Pitch Podcast this week!

EP 221: Starman Omnibus Vol 1

The return of Dad this week.  Nothing much has changed in the month break from the podcast.  Dad still enjoys eating sweets, being confused by comic books and still does not know the email for the podcast,

Dad returns to the show after a week’s absence to answer emails and attempts to read an entire run (17 issues) of comics, with the first volume of James Robinson’s Starman.  Next Week:  We3

EP 220: Swamp Thing: The Sureen


Dad is still recovering so Patrick invites a very good friend of the show Andy Smith of The Smith Signal Podcast to have deep musings on New 52 era Swamp Thing.  No snacks unless Andy was eating.

There is some light supermarket and dog talk added to the mix, as well as general pondering on where Swamp Thing could fit into the DC Universe of film or television.

Next Week:  Starman Omnibus Vol 1

EP 219: Batman: A Lonely Place of Dying


Patrick is joined by Randy and Jesse of the Grawlix podcast to discuss the seminal Batman tale from Marv Wolfman, George Perez, and Jim Aparo.  

The story as a great microcosm of Batman & Robin, and the fanbase.  We discuss the change in tone for Batman that was still straddling the last vestiges of pre-Crisis Batman in 1989 and still not quite into the arena of Frank Miller's Dark Knight and Year One level Batman.

Treat this week was some random left over cookies from the wedding that Patrick ate pre show.

Dad is on the mend and thanks for the emails.
