Kristin and Thomas are the new “Tom Goes To The Mayor,” a show they both enjoy. Comic book movies Thor: Ragnarok, Justice League, Atomic Blonde, My Friend Dahmer, and A Silent Voice are all mentioned. Our hosts compare “low-brow opera” and the Zelda Symphony to reading according to your tastes. No snobs allowed! All this and some great picks for our first episode of November 2017.
Some political comics:
Prez – a teenager accidentally goes viral on video and wins the presidency. Satire ensues.
She-Hulk – commentary on political asylum for Latverian dissenters
March – Congressman John Lewis’s experiences in the Civil Rights movement.
Excel Saga – hooray, civil servants!
Attack On Titan – fighting monstrous giants gives way to Japanese colonialism…sure?
Mr. A – All your favorite Randian hits, courtesy of Steve Ditko!
