in Galley Table

Time once again to fire up the Wayback Machine and visit a podcast from the past. Today we are setting the clock back to April 10th, 2011, and listening in on an episode of the Galley Table. Since there were no ladies present on the podcast, we discussed comics with our guest Blake M. Petit, podcast novelist. We looked at comic books as an art form, and how they have moved into other forms of art, such as novels and movies.

Some highlights from the episode:

  • “Wait, I wasn’t ready!” “Tough.”
  • “The geek rage must flow!”
  • “There are officially 52 earths, and that’s it.”
  • “Scott, have you ever noticed how wrestlers go into acting?” “I don’t think you can call what wrestlers do acting.”
  • “In a page, an artist can tell you more about a whole world than a writer can say in an entire issue.”
  • “How do super heroes prepare for the zombie apocalypse?”
  • “Topher Grace’s voice coming out of the Venom mask isn’t going to scare anyone.”
  • “Geek fight.”
  • “Here’s where I’m going to lose some geek cred with somebody…”
  • “If they’re too successful, they have to become the villains.”
  • “If you’re going to reboot something, you should at least wait until the corpse is cold.”
  • “Cue geek rage! Geek rage smash!”
  • “There was a New Mutants’s TV series?” “There was.” “I don’t remember it.” “That is probably to your benefit.”
  • “Some would say we’re well beyond…”
  • “About fifteen years and several thousand dollars later…”
  • “I think that Archie was the only thing I ever got into.”
  • “It was a comic book! Nobody dies in comics!”
  • “Spider-man was my first love.”
  • “I find it amusing that the Batman fans are always convinced that Batman will always win.”
  • “I’m all about the vengeance place.”
  • “Soonish.”
