Funnybooks with Aron and Paulie: After The Avengers

Paul’s home alone!  The horror!

Aron, Wayne, Tim, and Andrew were all at Fear the Con this weekend, leaving Paul to fend for himself in the scary podcasting waters.  What was he to do?  Luckily, some loyal listeners, Ray and Rob, volunteered to join him for a special episode about this weekend’s huge blockbuster hit, The Avengers.

They talk about their favorite scenes, characters, moviegoing experiences and…perhaps most importantly…what you do to get that Avengers fix after the movie!

Whether you read comics regularly or not, if you enjoyed the movie, give this episode a listen!

Warning: You are entering a spoiler-rich environment! If you haven’t seen The Avengers yet and do not wish the movie spoiled for you, download and listen AFTER you’ve seen it.

Along those lines, we have included our interview with Jim Starlin from last year who also spoiled a little key information from the movie.

With a career in comics spanning 40 years, Jim Starlin was responsible for re-imagining such characters as Captain Marvel and Adam Warlock for Marvel… and then killed them.

He’s the fellow who gave us Thanos (who loves Death) and over at DC, he killed off Jason Todd in the now infamous A DEATH IN THE FAMILY.

Sensing a theme?

Jim Starlin produced the third volume of his creator owned BREED over at Image Comics. It’s a horror story centering on the activities of Ray Stoner who is half-demon, half-man. Monstrous hijinks ensue.

Of course, Starlin was a pioneer in the realm of creator-owned content.

Starlin debuted his Vanth Dreadstar character in the serialized Metamorphosis Odyssey appearing in the pages of Marvel’s Epic Illustrated. Beyond that initial serialized story, Dreadstar moved onto his own original graphic novel followed by a monthly under Marvel’s Epic banner followed by a series at First Comics and then a mini-series at Malibu.

And Aron isn’t the only one sporting a chubby for Big Jim. Oh no, Paul has a deep and abiding love for all things Thanos and the Infinity gems.

Brother Starlin teases a little news in this episode about Dreadstar… and Thanos and a certain movie project.

Join our unabashed geek love fest as we adore Jim Starlin.
