The Drunken Dork Podcast Episode 07: Star Trek Into Darkness

This was one of those movies that it seemed liked everyone had an opinion.  In this episode, we discuss the latest entry into the Star Trek movie franchise, and actually get into a bit of a debate where one of the dorks liked it, one despised it and the other sulks quietly in the corner while nursing a hangover.

The Drunken Dork Podcast Episode 06: The DC Cinematic Universe

In case you didn't hear, we are no longer getting a Superman/Batman movies.  DC Comics and Warner Brothers blew fanboys minds when they announced that we will also be getting the first big screen appearance of a certain Amazonian Princess, as well.

 

Which leads to more questions than answers.  What can we expect for a plot?  How will this affect the anticipated Justice League movie?  Will the television shows that DC is producing be brought into the fold?

 

Join us as we explore these topics, discuss the various stages of our Batfleck related grief/nerd-rage, overcome various technical difficulties & over analyze the lyrics of some truly god-awful Christmas carols.

The Drunken Dork Podcast Episode 02: Crossovers

In this episode, not only do we usher in our new co-host, Travis, but we approach a subject most comic book fans view with either contempt or affection: Crossovers.

 

Are there too many of them?  What are the best ways for publishers to present these Mega-Events to their readers?  What do we feel are the best examples of this type of story?  Is Jake the only person on Earth who still has a shred of respect for Darkhawk??  Was it wise of us to slam several Irish Car Bombs prior to recording this episode??

The Drunken Dork Podcast Episode 04: The Year 2023

Welcome to the year 2023. Tom is on his 3rd liver, Travis is a successful billionaire and Jake is dead.

How are we reading our comics? Do we even still have a choice in how we get them. In 2013 we had print, digital, and trades. Content? Will we still have 10+ Avengers books? Will Batman and Wolverine still be in 30 books between the two of them? Are we still going to be so heavily focused on the same characters that we have for decades already, or will there be an insurgence of new characters? Indie vs Big Two? Currently, Marvel and DC take about 75% of the market place, while the independent publishers fight over the scraps. What do we think it will look like in 10 years? There has been a lot growth in the indie market with books like Walking dead. We have even seen books like Hellboy and 300 turn into movie franchises. Could we see the emergent of a Big Third company?

Movies? I have no doubt that comics will still be made into movies “that may or may not be seen in movie theaters Tom”. But will the Superhero movies finally be a thing of the past? Like westerns or hopefully romantic vampire movies?

Comic cons. We have seen amazing growth in Cons over the past few years. Heavily influenced by movies and our society finally embracing pop culture and all around geekiness. What is the next natural step? Cosplay cons, where its just a big dress up. Washed up actor/wrestler cons. Or will the bubble burst and we have to go back to flee markets where everything smells like caramel corn?

And the big scary question. Will they even bother. Now that both the big 2 are owned by such huge company’s like Disney and Warner Brothers, will they continue to make comics? In the long run, comics are barely a drop in the bucket for there bottom line. They don’t need to keep making comics in order to make cartoons and movies.
