Welcome to Comics Squared with Magen Cubed.

Jul 6, 2015

Welcome welcome. After a brief hiatus, me and my meat-shield Blaine are back to talk about Fight Club 2 from Dark Horse Comics. Is Fight Club 2 any good? Is it even relevant in 2015? We discuss the lasting impact of the original 1996 book and 1999 film, and where the comic fits in almost twenty years later. If you haven't read the book, seen the movie, or even picked up the comic, this episode is full of spoilery discussion, so tread carefully. Now sit back, relax, and pop open a cold one, because it’s time to talk about some nerdy business.

Welcome back, dear listeners, to another episode of Comics Squared with Magen Cubed. This week me, my meat-shield Blaine, and our good friend Will get together to discuss this summer's most anticipated blockbuster, Avengers: Age of Ultron. There's shots, there's jokes, there's two hours of us analyzing every nook and cranny of this movie. From the good stuff to the bad stuff, we cover it all. Also, I may have gotten drunk halfway through and started talking about my Captain America feels in long and loving detail. (Whoops.) This one is full of spoilers, so tread carefully, open up a cold one, and prepare yourself for some seriously nerdy business.

Welcome to a very special extended episode of Comics Squared with Magen Cubed. This week, we'll be covering Marvel's Daredevil. Having just emerged from a 48-hour binge-watching Netflix rabbit hole, me and my meat-shield Blaine dust off the shame and pizza crumbs to dedicate an entire evening to whiskey, Matt Murdock feels, and yelling about cowls. Oh, so many, many feels. But be warned: We cover the entire season and this episode is rife with spoilers. So just sit back, relax, and pop open a cold one, because it’s time to talk about some nerdy business.

Welcome to Comics Squared with Magen Cubed, Episode #10: Creepypastas. Yes, it's spring in the northern hemisphere, but this week me and my meat-shield Blaine set aside an evening to discuss some of our favorite things: Creepy stuff on the internet. Creepypastas, urban legends, scary stories, rituals on summoning dead people into your bathroom - from Bloody Mary to Slenderman, it's all on the table. (Plus there's a bonus creepypasta at the end of the episode!) So just sit back, relax, and pop open a cold one, because it’s time to talk about some creepy business.

Finally, after weeks of talking about it, my meat-shield Blaine and I discuss Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman (Or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, and Emma Stone. You ready for some serious film criticism?! No? Oh well. Just sit back, relax, and pop open a cold one, because it’s time to talk about some nerdy business.

Welcome to Comics Squared with Magen Cubed, Episode #6. This week me and my meat-shield Blaine are joined by our good friends Will and Ian as we take a trip down memory lane to discuss the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In a stunning lack of foresight, we get drunk and rewatch the classic 1990 TMNT and compare it with the recent 2014 reboot. Listen to our sanity crack as we attempt to critically analyze movies about giant anthropomorphic turtles! (And actually do a fair job of it, no less!) So sit back, relax, and pop open a cold one, because it's time to talk about some nerdy business.

Then we discuss our Comic of the Week, Moon Knight #12, wrapping up Brian Wood and Greg Smallwood's run and going over the character's complicated backstory for those "Moon Knight hipsters" such as myself.

Welcome to the first episode of Comics Squared! It’s my new podcast about comics, movies, TV, news, and whatever else that pops into mind. This week, while perpetually ill and braving the horrors of my first week back to school, me and my young ward Blaine talk about our favorite recent releases, as well as our pulls for the week. We also discuss the news (and general confusion) surrounding Marvel’s upcoming Secret Wars event, as well as the buzz about the possible X-Files reboot. So sit back, relax, and pop open a cold one, because it’s time to talk about some nerdy business. (You may want to send the kids to bed, though, because this show is intended for grown-ups.)
