Gaming Insurrection’s editors discuss their favorite — and not so favorite — comic book issues. Consider this a supplement to Strip Talk: the column by editor-in-chief Lyndsey Mosley. Call it what you will, but these editors know comics.
Mature language warning: The following podcasts are intended for mature audiences only. Podcasts may contain coarse language and content. Listener discretion is advised.
Strip Talk Podcast #11: Lyndsey fully fleshes out the concept of Too Many Villains Syndrome and what it means for the property review subject for the quarter, Batman Returns. Tenchi Muyo Vol. 3 is covered in Otaku Corner and Toradora is finished in Anime Lounge.
Strip Talk Podcast #10: Editor-in-chief Lyndsey Hicks’ love for comics found a way to transcend its confines and move into anime. Thus, you have Anime Lounge. Also, on tap is Tenhjo Tenge in Otaku Corner, Junjou Romantica in Anime Lounge and Afro Samurai in the property review.
Strip Talk Podcast #09: Lyndsey talks about the moral failings of X-Men leader Charles Xavier and the strange case of Dr. Strange, obscure hero of Avengers fame. Also, the awesomeness that is Death Note is noted.
Strip Talk Podcast #08: Lyndsey takes the trend of bashing direct comic book films to task. Also, Tenchi Muyo and Ultimate Avengers are discussed.
Strip Talk podcast #07: In an ongoing discussion about race and comic books, editors Lyndsey and Jamie talk about the need for more minorities in comics today. Sure, you have your well known superheroes such as Storm and Luke Cage but what about the unknowns? That question carries over into the Top 5 list. In Otaku this quarter there’s a little breakdown of Devil May Cry 3 Vol. 1 and there’s a review of the Watchmen film in the property review and Marrow gets the Marvel character highlight treatment.
Strip Talk podcast #06: Lyndsey and Jamie talk about what it takes to make heroes and villains in comics. In the property review, the classic Fox cartoon X-Men the Animated Series is reviewed and the merits of Saturday morning goodness as provided by the X-Men are debated. Also on tap is Robotech for Otaku, Magneto in the Marvel character highlight and finally, some of the worst comic book movies of all time are dissected in the Top 5 list.
Strip Talk podcast #05: Editor Lyndsey gets a little salty about just what she expects from her comic book flicks. No stone is left unturned as she and Associate Editor Jamie discuss just about every comic book movie that’s been released and failed miserably to live up to its hype. “The Spirit” featuring Samuel L. Jackson gets the property review treatment, and the duo discusses X-Men fan favorite Rogue for the Marvel character highlight. The Top 5 list for the quarter features the most useless hero. Who will win the not-so-coveted title?
Strip Talk podcast #04: Editor Lyndsey and Associate Editor Jamie reminisce about the days when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were at the height of their popularity. The 1987 animated TV show, comics and games are discussed in a catch-all podcast featured in Gaming Insurrection’s issue focusing on the four lovable amphibians.
Strip Talk podcast #03: Editor Lyndsey and Associate Editor Jamie ruminate about the soundtracks of their lives as self-proclaimed children of the ‘80s. The character highlight for the quarter focuses on Marvel villain (and My Way Entertainment favorite) Juggernaut while the property review discussion hovers over third Punisher reboot “Punisher Warzone.“
Strip Talk podcast #02: Editor Lyndsey and Associate Editor Jamie talk about the concept of the “stupid-smart villain”: A villain so smart that they’re capable of committing self-defeating acts that derail their plans out of sheer stupidity.
Strip Talk podcast #01: Editor Lyndsey and Associate Editor Jamie discuss Lyndsey’s column about the prevalence of the Phoenix Saga in Marvel’s X-Men series. Other topics of discussion include the theory of too many villains in comic book movies and the parodies of Marvel and anime properties by My Way Entertainment.
