143 - 64 Pages of Crap Wouldn't Be Fun - Week of 1/9/18

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 85th anniversary of Flash Gordon. It started out as a comic strip meant to compete with Buck Rogers, and stuck around in the funny papers for decades. It also crossed media, with movie serials, a radio show, and both live and animated TV series over the years. We even talk civilly about the 1980 film (somehow). Plus our standard silliness, as well as our picks of the week.
Come hang out with us! - we'll be starting monthly meetups in January at our local comic shop (A Galaxy Called Dallas in Garland, TX); details on Facebook & Twitter to come soon (first one is January 12th at 7pm)
What we're up to this week:
Prepping for a couple of future episodes 🙂; also picked up Super Suckers and Startup, two Sitcomics titles, and loved them
[and the promised link, www.sitcomics.net]
Vacation & reading - DC Nuclear Winter special, among others [kind of a tangent on the Branch Davidian compound]
Reading - the recent King Features collection, among others; also binged the Thin Man movies on TCM
Reading & the Twilight Zone marathon on Syfy

This was a more complicated topic than we were expecting (but that's not a complaint). And if nothing else, we got another show idea out of it 🙂
