Binary System Podcast #69 – WTNV #101 “Guidelines For Disposal”

On the most recent Welcome to Night Vale episode we were told exactly what you can and cannot bring to the new Night Vale landfill. You cannot bring: physical objects. You can bring: anything else. And we do mean anything.

After that we talk about Saga since Kathryn’s finally caught up, and our techniques for remembering names that don’t really work, and finish up with the movie High Rise and how you really ought to have a drink while watching it. Maybe three.

Binary System Podcast #48 – WTNV #92 “If He Had Lived”

This week’s episode of Welcome to Night Vale was so wonderfully weird, such a jewel of strangeness, we’re just going to dance around the details in the recap because we really really want you to listen to it yourself. Instead we discuss the additional weirdness that is The Last Days of New Paris, and Saga, the beautiful art of Civil War 2, and how last month’s issue of Transformers More Than Meets The Eye ripped our hearts out. Seriously, IDW, how could you? (We don’t want you to stop, but seriously. Ow.)

Binary System Podcast #41 – WTNV #90 “Who’s A Good Boy, Part 2″

The chaos in Night Vale comes to a crashing finale as the whole town joins in the battle. In the end, what happened? We can’t tell you. Seriously. We have no idea. Lots of opinions though.

After the recap we were all over the place, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Civil War II, Saga, Cowboy Bebop, Lucifer, the Fall, and any other distraction we could fit in a half hour.

Comic Issues #195 – Marvelous Movie Mania!

MARVEL MOVIES, PHASE 3! MARVEL MOVIES, PHASE 3! MARVEL MOVIES, PHASE 3!

As we’re sure that you’re already aware Marvel’s huge announcement of the entire Phase 3 line up was announced last week, and the Internet passed out from fandom.  This week Anthony and Elizabeth break down the coming storm, their hopes, their dreams, and Anthony’s crazy theory about Phase 4!

Also this week we read Saga #24, Death of Wolverine: Deadpool & Captain America One Shot, and Marvel’s 75th Anniversary Celebration.  We talk all about these books and more, including last week’s Memetic #1, because it was that cool!

This Sunday, November 9th, be sure to join us at CraneCon in the IKEA parking lot in San Diego.  We’ll be helping to raise money for Rady’s Children’s Hospital with a Smash Brother’s Tournament, kid friendly comic book readings, crafts, and photos ops with your favorite heroes.  And don’t miss out on our Geekdom 101 panel from 3pm to 4pm where we’ll be opening the doors of fandom to those who may be a little nervous about getting into comics.

Comic Issues #190 — Saga of the Magneto

Do you have a fictional hero that comes from your town?  Would you want a statue of him/her in a public place?  Of course you would, that would be awesome!  This week Anthony and Elizabeth talk about Edmonton’s petition to erect a statue of the Canadian hero, Milo Manara’s future Marvel Comic variants all being canceled in the wake of the “Ass Cleavage Scandal”, as I’m calling it, and of course some of our favorite comics of the last week.

If you haven’t read Saga #23, Magneto #10, or Guardians of the Galaxy #19 then spoilers be warned!  Fans of My Little Pony or Alien should stick to the end… or if you’re a fan of both.. it could happen.

Apple has a vague definition of Decency?

Apple has a vague definition of Decency?

When it comes to decency, the majority understand that there are things considered inappropriate for some, usually when speaking of children.  This kind of censorship has innate problems in that far too often what’s deemed inappropriate is decided by the few instead of the rightful majority.  Another and probably even more serious problem is that one man’s obscene is another man’s art and inconsistencies always end up arising that blur the lines of what the people may consider decent.

Unfortunately fans of  Brian K. Vaughn & Fiona Staple’s sci-fi opera Saga had some troubles getting issues #12 digitally because of Apple’s policies regarding appropriate material.  This was due to two “postage stamp-sized images” portraying men in homosexual acts getting the issue banned from the Comixology iOS app.  The news infuriated fans of the book as well as those against censorship and gay rights activists, but in a strange turn of events a day later Comixology has taken the blame for the ban.

This has made everyone a little suspicious.
