I’m the Host A slightly deeper look at the media we all consume

With the Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6 getting surprisingly big-budget movies for less-well-known comics, we ask what comics would be great to pull for developing a new series or cinematic release? 

Kurt brings in Marvel's Exiles and Image's Invincible as examples, but with suggestions from Ally, Blake, and the Grown-Ass Geeks, you'll have plenty of new books to check out. Which ones will work? Which ones won't? And why? Tune in, true believers!

Snake Vaughn ("I thought he was dead!") stealthily infiltrates our recording studio to tell us all about the recent lawsuit that found the creators of Lockout (2012) guilty of infringing on the intellectual property of Escape from New York (1981). 

We look at the copyright laws in the U.S. and France, ponder whether this is the best for the arts, and wonder why Lockout got hit with this when there are so many other properties which have aped Escape from New York's plot and style.
 
Kurt also calls Lockout by a couple different names. (It was that memorable.)

Our first episode without a host! We gave our two cents on Captain America: Civil War. Can Marvel juggle this many characters? Can the dialog and character interactions justify this argument between co-workers? Tune in to this off-week episode and find out, true believers.

This episode was recorded on March 7, 2016 and sounds a lot better because of tweaks we made. Hopefully the problems that plagued us in early episodes will not bother us anymore. Also these off week episodes will become more regular as we find time to do them. -Kurt-

 
 
Things referenced in this episode:
Cap's speech from the comic version of Civil War.(Kurt was totally wrong on where this is from)
Civil War logic meme
(I could not find the fake image spoiler that Kurt saw before, if anyone has a link we'll post it here.)
