    J.M. DeMatteis Interview

    J.M. DeMatteis Interview

    One of the Milksops' dream guests, J.M. DeMatteis graces the podcast this epsiode! J.M.'s credits in comics are vast: he had several long runs on Spider-Man (including the legendary series "Kraven's Last Hunt"), the dialogue writer on Justice League International (which was one of the funniest superhero comics ever, not that it was comedy, but still), Captain America, Moonshadow, Blood -- not to mention writing several episodes of animated series Justice League, Superman and others. J.M. asked to talk about Silver Surfer #3 from 1968. Written by Stan Lee and drawn by John Buscema, it's a philosophical, spiritual and trippy story --- no surprise that J.M. connected with it, given his long run of emotionally powerful comics stories. We were thrilled to have him! Oh, and he has a great John Lennon story which he DID NOT TELL US!

    Mutants and Mailbag #10 - X-Men #133-137

    The Death of Phoenix. Truly one of the milestone stories in modern superhero comics, and it still hits hard, even for the Milksops who are reading the full arc for the first time this year!

    Mutants and Mailbag #9 - X-men #129-132

    Enter: The Hellfire Club. Also enter: "radiation" heroes as stand-ups, mutants as improvisers; the abundance of alleys in Marvel's NYC; the debut of Kitty Pryde; and one of the most famous Wolverine panels to have ever happened! Plus the mail: we pitch some "What Ifs?", Kevin has an idea for The Incredibles 3 and wondering how the mutants will fit into the MCU.

    Mutants and Mailbag #8 - X-Men #125-128

    Mutants and Mailbag #8 - X-Men #125-128

    The Milksops arrive at the Proteus saga, and notice that the already-great X-Men series is levelling up in quality. Multiple storylines intersect with a powerful villain to create tension, action and drama. Phoenix is powering up. The Hellfire Club arrives. Moira Mctaggert returns, as does her ex-husband. Colossus' inferiority complex goes away, and Wolverine remains his fun and brutal self. Our take: this comic is goddamn good. Plus the mail!

I love this podcast

I found this podcast after hearing Will on Comedy Bang bang. Started listening from the beginning and it has given me a ton of joy.

A fun journey through comics

I really enjoy this show, whether I know the comics they’re talking about or not. Sometimes I’ll seek out a title they mention and enjoy it. My favorite part of the show is its set format that never changes. Keep up the great work, milksops!

Like the Condiment only Spelled Differently

My favorite weekly podcast hosted by two completely unrelated individuals living a countries distance apart. Their thorough and highly detailed breakdowns regarding the finer points of brick laying astound me. Keep up the good work
