We Stand On Guard


This week we explore future water wars and American / Canadian relations with Brian K Vaughan and Steve Skroce created miniseries We Stand On Guard.from Image Comics.  Patrick is lukewarm on the story and does not know what this is playing at in the end.  Dad thinks is all about a fight for resources.  Both are bowled over by the cinematic artwork and clean storytelling.  The treat this week is Smuckers crustless peanut butter sandwiches.

JSA Liberty Files


Dad and Patrick begin their quest of tearing through comics suggested by listeners in the year 2017.  First up is JLA Liberty Files.  Earth 40 of the DC multiverse in which the JSA superheroes are top secret agents fighting against Axis forces.  

Things go very poorly as Dad does not understand much of the comic book or he had one too many brownies and is lost deep, deep in the weeds.

Blacksad A Silent Hell



Patrick and Dad revisit the wonderful world of Blacksad.  At some point, things just turn into Jazz as father and son attempt to make sense of this anthropomorphic adventure of private detective John Blacksad in 1950s New Orleans during Mardi Gras.  Voodoo, confidence men, seedy drug dens, and jazz clubs are presented as a hardboiled family crime thriller with a Disney sheen.

JLA: New World Order


Dad and Patrick head deep back into DC comics with Grant Morrison and artist Howard Porter's inaugural run on JLA with the four-issue arc featuring very 1990s supervillains and some very cool Batman moments.   Dad has questions about what age Wonder Woman is supposed to be in this series and why is Batman running around in the daylight?  Patrick makes a good mincemeat pie filling but an awful crust.
