          Coin Operated 187: Out of Control

          Out of Control

          After a few weeks off, Brian and Cody catch up with all the out of control fandoms. We start off on 10/29 with the madness of the SNES Classic release. After that it was out to Tampa for MegaCon and beer. Brian enjoyed and reviewed his experience for that weekend including the can’t miss Jay and Silent Bob Get Old.

          Fandom Hell

          One of the themes we noticed at Megacon Tampa and in general was the amount of Funko Pop and Rick & Morty things everywhere. McDonald’s released the fabled Szechuan Sauce and the Rabid Rick & Morty fans went crazy. They are not a smart fan base.

           

          Video Games

          We talk about Cuphead and how much the style and  hardness make it a great game. Brian Talks about how much he joy he is going through playing the SNES classic especially Super Mario Land.

              Marvelette Missives – My Friend Dahmer

              Marvelette Missives – My Friend Dahmer

              Anyone over the age of 30 knows about Jeffrey Dahmer and likely remembers the details of his arrest and trial in the early 90s. Even if you’re younger, you no doubt recognize the name of the man who took the lives of 17 victims. Artist John “Derf” Backderf went to highschool with Dahmer in the 70s and in the graphic novel My Friend Dahmer, he recounts his interactions with him, how much of an outsider he really was and how the toxic family environment he lived in had a hand in creating the monster he was to become.  More

                  Episode 17: Plunging the Depps, Movies and Their Origin Stories

                  In this episode, join the Free Rotation hosts as we talk about movies vs their original form (books, manga, video games, series). Admittedly, this is an enormous topic but we are small minded enough to narrow it down to the ones that no one cares about- except us! How did books to movies like The Giver, IT, and Twilight stand up… wait.. did we talk about that?! The answer is fifty shades of “oh, yes, we did!”

                            Coin Operated 183: The Few

                            Coin Operated 183: The Few

                            This weeks episode is brought by the word The Few.

                            We talk about how much hell it was for people to try and obtain the Pre-Order for the Super NES Classic. The Few of them that were available were made difficult to obtain because of the Bots and the random release time. Best Buy and Amazon did it in the wee hours of the morning and the other around 1pm EST. ToysRUs did no pre orders and is doing first come first serve.

                            The next thing that was limited in our neck of the woods were eclipse glasses. These are needed to see the once in a lifetime event of a total eclipse. We tried to secure one and sadly had to bum some off of people to get the this eclipse. Orlando only got a partial eclipse. So at least we got that going for us.

                            We talk about one of the Few new characters that were announced for Injustice 2 and Brian loves their intro video. Its a Dark Horse Character with the hand of Hell.

                            Review time!

                            Brian reviews The Few from Image comics(https://imagecomics.com/comics/series/the-few):

                            The Few opens up with a woman running through the woods bleeding while holding a baby in her arms wearing a gas mask. This opening spread sets the overall tone of the book and shows that nothing is going to be normal.

                            Beyond the concept image of Eden Hall holding a baby, The Few is another dystonia future we have seen before from multiple different comics that goes in a circle with no clear focus or idea and is a bland story from the art to the words. It kept jumping around with the theme and didn’t help set overall tone of development for the characters.

                            Sadly this comic failed to find a voice and have the great characters potential fall because of lack of execution on their development and style.

                            Score for The Few:

                            4 out of 10

                              This past weekend Marvel’s The Defenders premiered on Netflix. Of course we watched the entire series and, of course, we’re letting you know what we thought about it. Sure, we get a bit spoilery, but this time around the series is only eight episodes, so you’ve had plenty of time to watch it already! We also chat a bit about horror movies, as well as comic shops and the current state of the comicbook industry.  More
