107 - This Was The Curse You Put On Me - Week of 4/4/18

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 50th anniversary of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. We talk about its roots, its story, and its impact on the culture. It's a very influential movie in a lot of ways, and it's also a bit polarizing, so it's a fun one to discuss. And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Lucy Dreaming #1 (Boom! Studios) & 2000AD Prog 2073 - books from last week that I would have reviewed had I had time; both are very cool
Norman trade (Titan) & Punks Not Dead #2 (IDW/Black Crown) - rebellious fun in both cases, though in very different ways
MAD Original Idiots: Will Elder - dude is a genius
Ready Player One - amazing movie, true to the book [It sparked a bit of a tangent, too. -m]
DC's Millenium collection - an awful lot like Secret Invasion, but 30 years earlier, and thanks to Joseph Illidge for recommending it :-)
