163 - He Better Be Listening To This Podcast - Week of 6/5/19

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Gardner Fox and his contributions to comics. He was a prolific writer of comics from the Golden Age through the early 1980s, and there may be an argument that he rivals Stan Lee in terms of influence. We talk about his creations, his extensive credits listing, how he and Stan differed, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual weirdness, as well as our picks of the week.
Announcements:
Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook & Twitter & the Events tab on our website
What we're up to this week:
25th anniversary hardcover reprint of the Bram Stoker's Dracula comic adaptation - amazing is an understatement
Rocko's Modern Afterlife; season 14 of Supernatural (perhaps a spoiler or two here, if you're concerned - and a wee tangent)
John Wick 3 - so many bullets, so little reloading
The Human Torch and The Thing: Strange Tales - The Complete Collection; Batman '66 trades

Gardner Fox had a long and successful career as a comics writer; his credit list is almost ridiculously long. He may not have been the ambassador that Stan Lee was, but his influence on the medium is unparalleled.
And fair warning, we wander off pretty far into the weeds after a while. Probably a rant that needed to happen, though.
