As has become a tradition of the Somethingcast, we watch a lot of Netflix.
That’s not the tradition.. it’s a fact.. but it isn’t the tradition I’m speaking of. I’m talking about when a new Marvel show appears on our queue, we call on the one and only @Ungajje himself, Tim Stevens. If you aren’t aware of Tim’s work at Marvel.com, just go.. we’ll wait.
But for a show like Iron Fist where there is so much to unpack, we needed someone to balance out our chi when it came to the martial arts featured in the show, so we also called in @KungFuDriveIn, himself, Jeof Vita. If you aren’t aware of Jeof’s podcast, Kung-Fu Drive-In, just go.. we’ll wait.
The four of us have been chosen to Defend you from what is to come next… unless you already watched Iron Fist. Then you’re beyond our help.
So spoilers abound, but no matter what… ok, here we go!
They say you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover… well guess what… 5% of a comic book is it’s cover, so how about we judge a book by 5% of its content?
This week, the Something’s are going to the land of funnybooks where we discuss not the greatest covers that have ever come to comicdom, but our favorites. From Marvel to DC and everything in between – here are some of the comic covers that shaped our world. We’ve done our best to give you all of the information you need to follow along..
Ok, here we go!
When Netflix calls – we move forward. Always forward.
You are correct, the boys are back with the newest installment in the Netflix Marvel Universe. We have seen what goes down in Hell’s Kitchen. We have had our Alias investigated. Now it is time to check out who runs Harlem.
As has become a SomethingCast tradition, we can’t take on a character like Cage without a little help, so we brought our favorite dulcet toned delight, Tim ‘Ungaije’ Stevens (Check out his Psyche Ward at Marvel!). Please settle in while we talk the history of the character, the concepts of the show, the connections with the Marvel U, and more.
How does Cage rank amongst the rest – now’s the time to find out with your Podcast For Hire.
Ok, here we go!
Three Years Ago….
A former podcaster, writer, and internet weirdo Rev. James was lingering in a local watering hole when he heard a voice he hadn’t heard in years. The bombastic laughter of one Mr. Podcast Rob.
Considering the idea of getting back into the podcast game, over the course of the next few times hanging out, the idea became clear.
After a meeting of the minds (or whatever it is they have in their skulls) – The SomethingCast was born.
Well join us once again as we celebrate our leather anniversary. (Yeah, it’s leather.. look it up.. don’t make anything of it) We’re back at the Something’s home away from home, Wildpig Comics in Kenilworth, NJ with store owner Chris and manager Bill talking the last year of comickiness in front of a live audience.
Also a quick shoutout to friend and regular Tim ‘Ungaije’ Stevens who wasn’t able to make it – but we’ll make sure to get him back on the line soon to be smarter than us.
And to all of you who have supported us over the years – be you friend, family, fan, podcast – thank you. We couldn’t do it without you.
Well – ok – here we go!
One side is for the establishment and assigning names to the faces of vigilantes.
One side is for the freedom to do as you wish and the want to never compromise your values.
Today on the SomethingBlackerThanPreRecordedBlackSomethingLiveCastTimesInfinity…
Ok, let me clear that up a little…..
The forces of the podcasting elite have gathered together to form a union that no villain shall be able to tear asunder. One snivvling dude from Latvia or whatever.. maybe.. but VILLAINS, I SAY NAY! This week we are sharing the spotlight with:
BLACKER THAN BLACK TIMES INFINITY!
Join us as we go through Capt. America’s movie before the world hated him for no apparent reason. Prepare to have your brain hijacked and smash the Like button, fuck pumpkin.
The Somethings have found their way back in the alleys of Hells Kitchen, and who did we find there?
Of course, we found our favorite comic genius, none other than the arid-witted Tim Stevens!
So now that the dust has settled, the guns have been stashed, and the sais are buried – we are taking on Daredevil Season 2 and a whole shitton of ninjas. So walk with us Hand in Hand in this Foggy weather to our Castle, and be prepared to be Elektrafied by this Frank discussion! (…ok, i’ll stop… …karen page…)
Ok, here we go!
It is no surprise to anyone that the Somethings like comic things. Hell, they’ve done like 5 episodes about them already… so when the big mill started about Deadpool, it was a foregone conclusion that they were going to see it. So what did they think of the Merc With A Mouth?
..they obviously left nerd stains all over the seat in front of them..
Who said that? Anyway, breaking box office records and proving we DO need another hero.
..two podcasters enter, one podcaster leave..
No, seriously who keeps doing that!? Well, anyway, take a listen and find out what the boys think!
..ok, here we go!
THAT’S MY LINE!
Note: To see more of Reilly Brown‘s work – here is his home site (to request commissions) and here is where you can buy pages!
Put on your biggest smile, and join us once again as the Somethings delve into binge watching Netflix’s newest Marvel: Jessica Jones. What started as a noir take on the superhero world has taken television by storm as a story of the seedier, darker, and downright creepier parts of what great power means when you have little responsibility.
Joining us is honorary Something, friend, and comic book genius – @Ungajje himself: Tim Stevens.
Couple things to note – this show is long. We love talking with Tim, so even when we say ‘lets wrap it up.. there’s another 2 hours.’ Also, this show is SPOILERIFFIC. If you are 3 episodes in.. don’t listen. Go watch them. Then listen.
SWEET CHRISTMAS, Here we go!
Anyway – we are back with part two of our two part extravaganza at the home of the Pig – Wild Pig Comics! We last left off with WildPig Chris leaving, and still quite a bit of the future of the MCU to go! So join our live audience, special panelists Madison and WP Manager Bill Ellis as we talk about the future not only of the MCU but of comic movies in general. Is the end nigh? What does Ben Affleck think about it? FIND OUT NOW!
How did they do it? Two years ago, two old friends met up and started goofing off… one year ago they met up at their favorite nerdbook haunt, Wild Pig Comics, and talked about the Marvel Comics Universe. Well guess what, it has been one more year and another dozen movies about people in tights.. so we’re back talking with the Madison, the Wild Piggies of Chris and Bill, and a live audience to talk about the past and future of the Marvel Comics Universe.
Also, you will hear a special announcement about a new website and joining a bunch of friends for a new home for your ears!
Ok, here we go.
