Cloning For Dummies

March 2, 2017 Jason 0

I remember a debate in my old social studies class, in 7th grade that asked about the implications of human cloning. This was in the last throes of the 20th century, when things like Dolly the sheep had opened potential floodgates in the cloning field. Could we clone a human? Should we clone a human? Well, little did my nascent geek self realize, comics held a path torwards looking for answers. Could we? Probably. Should we? Well, as long as the writers at Marvel aren’t handling the project. Spider-man is currently dealing with cleanup from yet another clone storyline. Think […]

Death’s Revolving Door Policy

January 31, 2017 Jason 0

Death is an inevitability and a finality. In comics, we’ve seen many a death. Superman died defending Metropolis from Doomsday’s rampage. Captain America was sniped by Crossbones on courthouse steps. Jean Grey died to save the rest of the X-Men from an otherwise fatal re-entry. Jason Todd was beaten to death with a crowbar by the Joker, then blown up. These deaths rocked the comics world, and the holes they left in our hearts will never be filled. Well, at least not for another 6-12 months, a year or two at most. Then some massive event will hit, and our […]

For episode 2, we discuss Vivek Tiwary’s award-winning comic,  “The Fifth Beatle”, which documents the story of the Beatles’ manager, Brian Epstein. We honestly didn’t like it. We get pretty vocal on this matter, as well. Intro music is “Equilibrium Instrumental” by junior85.

Chasing Strange: Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy

January 11, 2017 Jason 0

I know a bunch of you shippers are so glad to hear that Harley Quinn is in a non-monogamous relationship with Poison Ivy. While a part of me was kind of blasé about it, another part of me could only laugh his fat ass off.  Not because there’s anything particularly humorous about the situation, but because DC slipped a big one past everyone’s noses, and no one sneezed. Check the wording from DC: “They are girlfriends without the jealousy of monogamy.”  So not only is this relationship homosexual, but it’s non-standard-conforming.  Is it an open relationship?  Is there a third […]
