Episode 80 - I'm Down With A Cyborg Shark Movie - Week of 9/20/17

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the MoviePass concept. This is a subscription-type service which grants you admission to a participating movie screen every 24 hours (some restrictions apply). Is this a viable concept? We discuss it here. And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Trade Pile - Cyrus Perkins and the Haunted Taxi Cab (Action Lab) - very likeable ghost story/crime story from a couple of years ago
More Trade Pile - Alien Legion book from 2015, Fire by Brian Michael Bendis, Sherlock Holmes Crime Alleys (Dark Horse)
More More Trade Pile - The Greatest Villains of the Fantastic Four - here's a decent image of the cover in question
[Apparently we all read comics this week. Go figure, right? :-) -m]
