          GW1 Issue 118 – We Make Quite a Team

           

          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

              Some movies opened over the past few weeks so we’re catching up on our reviews. We cover Valarian, Atomic Blonde and Dark Tower. Are any of them worth seeing on the big screen or should you just wait until they stream to your TV? And yes, there are spoilers. But first, there’s a lot of recent casting news to talk about, plus Deadpool 2 production details, TV show updates and some comic book news.   More

                It’s our monthly Malted Meeple issue and our buddy Marcus Calvert decided to join us. By now you’ve heard (and seen) a lot of what came out of Comic-Con International (aka San Diego Comic-Con or SDCC), but we want to make sure you know about some of the cool stuff that was a bit more under the radar. Sure, we have details about the big Marvel and DC properties, but we also have some TV and comicbook news you might have missed. More

Well this week we have an interview with the creator, Merle Rasmussen! We pick his brain over the original game and how the new version, Top Secret: New World Order, came about, plus Kylan finally gets the answer to a question that he’s wondered about for years.  More

                      Another summer blockbuster opened last weekend, so we’ve got your spoiler-filled review. Yes, another Spider-Man movie is out… is it worth seeing? Is it an improvement on the past ones? Is Holland a better web-slinger than Maguire or Garfield? We talk about all of that and more! Plus there were a few new Comic-Con panel and appearance announcements, Disney’s big con is coming up this weekend and, unfortunately, there were a couple of losses over the past week that we want to mention.

                        A lot of media companies have confirmed their presence at Comic-Con International (better known as San Diego Comic Con) and panel schedules are taking shape. So we’re talking about the properties that are big enough to get some time at the con and the huge ones that warrant a place in Hall H. But, of course, we have plenty of geek chat and news to hit first.  More

                              We’re a little all over the place this week, but you can probably tell we had a good time. After a very brief update of our goings on, we get into myriad tv shows we’ve watched from the 80s through to today (and some crazy plot lines), what we like/don’t like about movie trailers and why detailed origin story movies aren’t necessary. We also say farewell to a Bat icon and talk Star Wars costumes.  More

Of course, by the end of the show we end up talking about anything and everything (including Andy’s kryptonites), but we do sneak a bit of geek news in there.   More

                                    There was a lot of television news this week, so that’s what we’re chatting about (well, most of us are… Kylan is mumbling his way through because of dental work). First we cover Oddmall… yes, there’s another one this weekend and it’s outdoors! Then we get into TV, with cancellations, renewals, new shows and a return to sci-fi.  More
