DC: The New Frontier Vol 2

Less heavy lifting from Patrick as Dad understands more of  Darwyn Cooke’s 2004 mini-series retelling the Silver Age origins of DC  comic book heroes.  We both love the Flash in this comic though.  We eat too many fritters and discuss proper Paczki with prunes and or cream filling. If you are ever in the Detroit area find us and we will lead you to best worst food for your health.

DC: The New Frontier Vol 1

This week we read DC: The New Frontier, which is an Eisner, Harvey and Shuster Award-winning six-issue comic book limited series written and drawn by Darwyn Cooke, and published by DC Comics in 2004.  Lotta heavy lifting from Patrick as Dad had very little interest in Darwyn Cooke’s 2004 mini-series retelling the Silver Age origins of DC  comic book heroes.  We both love Wonder Woman in this comic though. Treat this week is a bit of homemade chicken noodle soup. Next Week: Vol 2

The Wicked + The Divine

Back to the deep and dark recesses of confusion and Dad has many issues reading the first few issues of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s The Wicked + The Divine.  We read some emails and discuss being sick.  Dad explains how little he understands of contemporary kinds of music and general pop culture.  The treat this week is De La Rosa Mazapan

We Stand On Guard

This week we explore future water wars and American / Canadian relations with Brian K Vaughan and Steve Skroce created miniseries We Stand On Guard.from Image Comics.  Patrick is lukewarm on the story and does not know what this is playing at in the end.  Dad thinks is all about a fight for resources.  Both are bowled over by the cinematic artwork and clean storytelling.  The treat this week is Smuckers crustless peanut butter sandwiches.

JSA Liberty Files

Dad and Patrick begin their quest of tearing through comics suggested by listeners in the year 2017.  First up is JLA Liberty Files.  Earth 40 of the DC multiverse in which the JSA superheroes are top secret agents fighting against Axis forces.  

Things go very poorly as Dad does not understand much of the comic book or he had one too many brownies and is lost deep, deep in the weeds.

Blacksad A Silent Hell

Patrick and Dad revisit the wonderful world of Blacksad.  At some point, things just turn into Jazz as father and son attempt to make sense of this anthropomorphic adventure of private detective John Blacksad in 1950s New Orleans during Mardi Gras.  Voodoo, confidence men, seedy drug dens, and jazz clubs are presented as a hardboiled family crime thriller with a Disney sheen.

JLA: New World Order

Dad and Patrick head deep back into DC comics with Grant Morrison and artist Howard Porter's inaugural run on JLA with the four-issue arc featuring very 1990s supervillains and some very cool Batman moments.   Dad has questions about what age Wonder Woman is supposed to be in this series and why is Batman running around in the daylight?  Patrick makes a good mincemeat pie filling but an awful crust.
