CM Podcast 109 – Skrull Kill Krew

Comics Misremembered Podcast 109

As Huey Lewis once crooned “Gotta go back in time.”  Well, that is what we do here from time to time at the Comics Misremembered Podcast.  We wax nostalgic about old comics and talk about if they were as good as we (mis)remember them.

This week, we will talk about Marvel’s 1995 Miniseries Skrull Kill Krew.  It was written by Grant Morrison and Mark Millar with pencils by Steve Yeowell.

It’s a story about Skrulls and the Krew that loved to kill them.

Listen to the podcast and you will hear:

  • Our take on this very interesting miniseries.
  • That it is very difficult to say “Skrull Kill Krew” after a few adult beverages.
  • Some influences we think are in the comic.
  • My totally spot-on impersonation of Marvel’s Tom DeFalco.

Also in the podcast, one of the influences I mention is a movie called Invaders from Mars.  It originally came out in 1953 and then was remade in 1986.  I could not remember the name of the director.  I apologize, it was Tobe Hooper.  The man who directed The original (and best) Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist.  Here is a preview of Invaders from Mars:

Thanks for listening.

Your comics pal,

Jim
