Episode 56 - Tribute to Bernie Wrightson - Week of 3/29/17

The Fellowship is pleased to present our reminiscences about the career of Bernie Wrightson, who was taken from us this week by brain cancer. He had a marvelous career as an artist who could transcend genre, and he was also respected and loved by his fellow creators. And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Catching up on Knights of the Dinner Table (I got behind)
Found some recent Heavy Metal mags with a Donny Cates story in them
Also found a movie called All Stars (2014) about youth sports - ah, memories
Finally saw Star Trek Beyond - an okay movie with some problems
Also Robert Osborne tribute on TCM - his interviews were something that our humble show can only aspire to
