Hoo boy, this one’s a rough one. We’re talking about the Original Edgelord of Comics, Alan Moore and his second volume of The League Of Extraordinary Gentleman. This one gets a little intense, so strap yourself in. The Invisible Man, Mr. Hyde, Mina Harker, and Captain Nemo, Allan Quatermain, and some wagon driver all team up to fight aliens! What more could you want?
On this episode, we’re talking Alan Moore, because this book? It ain’t quite Swamp Thing. Ryan has some real issues with this snake god worshiping writer. Sly finally learns the secret way in to the Vermilion City Pokemon gym. Phil’s secret hatred of a beloved book series is exposed. And Darryl rushes to the defense of the neglected monsters of the world.
As always, Edgelord August touches upon some serious themes, like severe violence, and violence against women. But this time, ESPECIALLY.
On this episode, we get back to our roots and talk about a Millar book with a better movie adaptation. Sly’s just a wanker running from the billies. Ryan once again falls victim to fake news and revisionist history. Phil min-maxes his build to get all the ladies. Has Darryl finally replaced Nemesis as his favorite Millar book?
As always, Edgelord August touches upon some serious themes, like severe violence, and violence against women.
For part two of Edgelord August, we revisit the man who brought us to the rodeo: Mark Millar. Old Man Logan was technically the source for the recent Logan film. Is this is another example of a film adaptation being better than a Millar book? (Yes)
We’re back to the usual crew to discuss the usual Millar garbage. Sly tries to hold it in all episode but can’t resist the urge to pop his claws. Ryan gets ready for what is sure to be a fun and goofy story. Phil is back and ready for some more edgelord shit. Darryl points out the politically relevant nature of this 2008 story.
