25 – Late to the Game, Never Lame

It’s been awhile, but the Brothers Denton aren’t dead; rather, they’re just hibernating, being distracted from their one true love in life — podcasting (that’s a lie) — by work, life, and laziness.  Join us for our camping aftermath, when we talk about bear survival and body stains.  Then, some discussion about steampunk culture, “chappers,” and the Burton and Swinburne novels by Mark Hodder.  Rance has some strongly negative feelings about that lump of crap known as The Revenant.  More bear survival points.  Then, after some talk about Creed, Bob writes a letter to Rocky Balboa’s best friend Paulie, and then begins to scream about Chris Hardwick and The Walking Dead.  Other topics include Negan, Garth Ennis, Daredevil season 2, The Punisher, and more!  We missed you.  We always miss you.  These kisses are for you.

8 – Gender and Race in Comic Books

Amid the terror of some inexplicable echo effect, our first points of interest in this episode dance briefly between reflections on Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Bob’s dedication to his diet, and Rance’s Summon! LootCrate.  Topics jump back and forth between Fear the Walking Dead (come on, it’s really not all that good, you guys) and racial identity in comic books and comic book-related media.  This, in turn, forces us to get a little serious about the subject of race (come on, nerds; we’re a diverse society now) and the appeal (or lack thereof) of comic books to a their intended audience.  The Genetically Superior Spider-Man is unveiled, and the Penguin Yellow Duck is exhumed from the shallow grave of our childhood memories.

 


6 – Fear the Walking Dead (Clustercast)

The Brothers Denton feature their first Clustercast, i.e., the usual crapfest with an additional guest: Tyler, our local “expert” (note the quotes) on The Walking Dead and straight-edge extraordinaire.  The trio rolls their hesitation and excitement for the upcoming premiere of Fear the Walking Dead into a single incomprehensible ball of loud noise.  Bob admits his mediocrity as a member of the Harry Potter wizarding world.  Machine-gun topics: Magic-kids; is butterbeer alcoholic?; being physically inside Harry Potter.  Moving on, we touch upon general trepidation regarding FTWD as a spin-off and predictions for the sixth season as well.  We also discuss potential character fates and — somehow — get sucked into an inadvertent back-and-forth about Doctor Who.  Somehow, we end up talking about stupid Jon Snow, and George R.R. Martin makes a guest appearance.

 


3 – TWD and MH:A; Art and Voice Actors

We begin with a small game of What’s In Bob’s Masculine Purse, and the suspense is palpable.  Bob uses his iPad like a modern man.  We discuss what we are currently reading, including The Walking Dead and Monster Hunter Alpha.  There is some talk about the changing of artists in comics and how unsettling it can be to notice how some artboys artboy differently than other artboys.  Likewise, we briefly blabber about various voice talents in audiobooks, specifically Stephen Frye (Harry Potter), James Marsters (The Dresden Files), and Oliver Wyman (Monster Hunter International).  Also, we come to the conclusion that people who dislike the Harry Potter series are inhumane meatbags.
