Therefore I Geek Podcast Episode 109, Ghost in the Shell

Our trio of hosts return to discuss Ghost in the Shell, the newest live action feature based on the classic anime film of the same name. Between actual whitewashing and an overall half-assed attempt, the film doesn’t exactly deliver like the group had hoped.

Therefore I Geek Podcast Episode 27, Return of the Federali

con-man-poster-435x600

The lemongrass incident one, in which Mike Federali returns to the Therefore I Geek podcast with more whimsical conversation than ever before.  Topics include the upcoming spring Tidewater Comicon show, Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion’s new project Con Man, whether or not J. R. R. Tolkien’s middle initials stand for “Really Rad” (hint: they do), and an impassioned plea for all Disney stores to sell Marvel comics from now on.

Gail Simone, the outspoken writer of Batgirl has started a new Tumblr page dedicated to giving advice to people who want to get into the comics industry. Even though it just started the page already contains several good articles covering a wide variety of topics from experts. I’d once heard someone likening breaking into the comics industry to breaking out of jail, in that once someone accomplishes it, their route is closed up behind them. Hopefully this page will take away some the mystery and help some creative folks get into the industry.

I’ve also heard other things compared to prison life, but they shouldn’t be repeated in polite company.

A little less than 10 months separates us from Avengers: Age of Ultron and although we haven’t seen much in the way of stills (and no trailers yet) fans were treated to a little preview thanks to Avengers director Joss Whedon. Joss states that both Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be fighting with Ultron and that we will be introduced to Vision. Whedon wouldn’t go into details of course, but just that little bit has already sparked my curiosity.

For now, I’ll just keep calm and count down to Guardians of the Galaxy.

Finally here is an opinion piece from Comics Alliance about the wave of announcements that came out of Marvel this week. Starting with a female Thor and then Falcon taking up the mantle of Captain America, the internet has been abuzz with activity and rumors. I’ve go no issue with a new, black Cap, though I think the article’s author has a point that a new Falcon book would have been a better idea. What I’d really like to know is who the female Thor is. At first there were rumors it would be Angela, which I feel works out just fine, since she was still pretty out of place, but later images released show Angela and Fem Thor on the same Avengers team. So unless their screwing with us, I’ve got nothing.

I really hope we’re being screwed with.
