Episode 393: Tiny Rock Boobs (Book Club feat. Schlock Mercenary – Vol. 5)

How you look in real life in an Assassin's Creed hoodieLOOK OUT! Here comes a spider, man. We take care of the day-to-day goings on with our Whatcha Been Readin’ picks, Crossed: Dead or Alive by Garth Ennis and Daniel Gete and AC Stuart’s Noob the Loser (beware, there be GIFs afoot) before we delve once again into the deep dark of the Schlock Mercenary archives. And after the show proper, we have an announcement about the Book Club format for future shows.

WWE Superstar Triple H in Blade 3What happens when you stretch out one work over many, many installments? You get something that may or may not be entertaining all the way through! That multiple-edged sword cuts so many ways. Before we dive into our fourth installment of the Schlock Mercenary Book Club, we take quick peeks at Emily Carroll’s All Along The Wall and Everblue by Michael Sexton. Enjoy the holidays and we’ll see you in 2015!

Comet cleanerIt’s a week of amazing feats, as we take on week 3 of the massive back-catalog that is Schlock Mercenary! Oh, and some probe landed on some comet. We also chat about Matt Chapman and Andy Suriano’s Cosmic Scoundrels and Seaclops by Andy Duggan, as well as the recent woes that Marc Lapierre faced when his amazing work was co-opted without his permission. Happy endings for everyone, though

Ok … maybe not the probe.

Episode 375: Rise of the Faplets (Book Club feat. Schlock Mercenary – Vol. 1)

Japanese girls model the latest phabletsPeople in our circles typically follow the gadget world pretty closely. For our podcast, that assumption would be half right. Listen to Jason tell Steve about all the devices he’ll be pining for in the next year! Marvel as Steve couldn’t give less of a crap! All this, plus a sad tale of misaligned brotherhood and our first of many forays into the deep, dark area of space that encompasses Howard Tayler’s long-running classic, Schlock Mercenary.
