Scotch & Comics Episode 018: Atlas Shrugs

I Want This Poster SO BAD

I Want This Poster SO BAD

REFERENCES! It’s a punny title for a not-very-punny episode as your host Devin R Bruce channels the spirit of one of his Podcast Saints and dives headlong into his Regina pile…and also into madness! Will your intrepid host manage to survive the onslaught of his towering pile of unread comics? With the help of his spirit guide, Just Bill, how can he fail? From Chew to Fantastic Four to Über to Constantine to yes, even The Amazing Spider-Man, not even nine months of unread comics can stop the Scotch & Comics show!

Show Notes:

  • Just Bill’s website is here. The last episode came out in 2012 but it is definitely worth listening to if you like comics.
  • I meant fifteen and a half centimeters. That’s right. #ladies
  • Anyone want to buy me that Poyo poster? Anyone?
  • Seriously: Fraction and the Allreds’ FF kind of broke my brain a little bit. I am sorry if that part makes no sense.
  • And that night was the night I decided to start titrating down on my pills. One pill every other day. #pills
  • If you are on Twitter and you aren’t following Kieron Gillen, you should. Not only is he a good writer and very friendly, he has great taste in music.
  • When I used the phrase “This is real superheroism!” in an insulting manner, I wasn’t trying to indicate that’s what the creators were saying. I was trying to make fun of myself for heading down that road. I am not very clear when I’m tipsy.
  • Seriously. Anyone want to read Hellblazer with me? Cause I’ll do it.
  • No fancy editing: that siren really did fade out the minute I apologized about it. Coincidence? ABSOLUTELY!
  • It feels weird saying Ms. Marvel. I really wanted to say Captain Marvel. (You all are reading Captain Marvel, right?)
  • A little harsh towards the end? Maybe, but then again, in whisky veritas.
  • Please do check out The Listmakers. I’m inordinately proud of it.
  • Musical interludes on this episodes are: “Always Keep An Edge On Your Knife” by The Corb Lund Band, “The Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Song” by The Flaming Lips, “Prove Yourself” by Radiohead, “Get Up On It Like This” by The Chemical Brothers, and “Alligator” by Tegan & Sara. Some decent CanCon this episode!
