VFCast Season 3 Episode 17: Saga: Star Wars for Perverts!

No part of me is ever ‘safe for work.’ I am an unsafe worker, bitches. I got fired by OSHA! This podcast is, however, less safe for work than our normal podcast.

Title: Saga Volume 1 
Author: Brian K. Vaugn
Artist: Fiona Staples   
Publisher: Image Comics    
Release Date: October 10, 2012

So for the next month or so we are gonna be catching up with the hip kids. Every time someone says to me “Wait you are not reading x” we are gonna buy that ‘x’ thing and read it. You can imagine how quickly our reading queue is filling up. We are starting with Saga.

What do you want me to say about Saga? You are surprised that we haven’t been reading 545_-_1024x768_amalgam_comics_batman_cape_claws_comic_darkclaw_fusion_marvel_comics_moon_rooftop_skin_tight_wallpaper_wolverineit? So are we. You want me to tell you how awesome it is? Listen to the podcast if you want to know what we think about it! You wanna it to be more Batman-y? Just read the parts with The Will and ignore everything else [Wait… since when is Batman an amoral bounty hunter? -L]. Same thing if you want it to be more Wolverine-y, actually. You could also read Dark Claw in that case. I think you might enjoy reading Saga more, though.

Title: Doctor Strange: The Oath
Publisher: Marvel Comics Author: Brian K. Vaughan
Artist: Marcos Martin
Release Date: 12/12/2012

Having had a LOT of fun with Doctor Strange and Brian K. Vaughan recently, when we remembered that there was a Vaughan created story staring the Master of the Mystic Arts it was just too tempting to read that thing.

Also did you remember that Doctor Strange was an MD? Did you read the 70s-tastic Marvel Comic’s Night Nurse? Do you want ol’ Doc Strange to have homoerotic tension with his “Man-Servant” Wong, while flirting with a girl, using Sherlock Holmesian quips? If you answered yes to all of these questions you are likely our first, and most loyal listener. How are you, Christi?

In this week’s feature podcast: a jetpack fueled by hydrogen peroxide, technomancy, and political fights over school vouchers and gay marriage. We should have our doctor check us for whiplash!

Ex Machina: Deluxe Edition Volume 1

PUBLISHER: DC Comics (Wildstorm Imprint)
RELEASE: July 15, 2008

Welcome back to Sophomore Lit Class, Vestrymen Style!

It is a bit strange to read a comic where September 11 is as important as it is here, and have that same book really not give a crap about terrorism. The first time I read this book I was seriously prepared for SemiRacist Shooter: Comic Book Edition. Instead we get a thoughtful,  engaged, intelligent mix of the superhero genre with a high-minded, optimistic political drama.

We hope you enjoy the podcast. Come back every Wednesday for quick reviews, same highest-non-ordained-position-in-some-part-of-the-Church-of-England time, same highest-non-ordained-position-in-some-part-of-the-Church-of-England channel.
