MattyLovesPodcast Volume 2, Episode 3

Welcome to another exciting episode of MLP!

Bob Ross paints, while the fella podcast.

This week Matt and “Dr. Tom” rap about some of the recent documentaries that have popped up here and there.

In particular, Tom recently viewed The Death of Superman Lives. He talks a bit about what makes the doc work. Find out what all’s in store as stories of the infamous suit as well as the changes in the film’s direction. It’s quite an interesting debacle.

Matt talks a bit about Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as well as The Image Revolution–the doc that tells the story of the origin of Image Comics.

Tom recaps his week of sickness with the Justice League International.

Matt asks Tom who he thinks would make a better Lobo? The Rock, Danny Trejo, or Charlie Hunham?

Matt asks the “Street Shaman of Geekdom” what he thought of Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham. It’s full of Mike Mignola goodness!

Matt is in the middle of reading Brian Michael Bendis’ Words For Pictures. This is essential reading material for anyone who want to write comics.

You notice we’re talking all-comics this week! It is, after all, the reason for this wonderful podcast.
