CM Podcast 138 – Strikeforce: Morituri

While visiting our local comics store New England Comics (which is the best by the way), I came across a Trade Paper Back Blowout sale that they were having.  I looked through the many boxes that were there and came across an absolute buried treasure:

Strikeforce: Morituri – created by Peter B. Gillis and Brent Anderson back in 1986!!

The entire run (31 regular issues and 5 issue prestige format miniseries) was collected into 3 Trade Paper Backs!  Each one was $5 a piece!!

I instantly grabbed them up and proceed home as fast as possible to begin re-reading the series.  I knew that I had to have Jon read these trades and this was going to be the next podcast.

Jon read most of the 1st TPB and we decided to go over the first 2 story arcs of the series and then talk about what we think were some of the influences to Peter Gillis when he was writing this series.  It was great revisiting these stories and we hope that you can snag a copy of these comics and get a chance to read them or if you already read the comic, relive the memories that we have of the series.

Your comics pal,

Jim

Comics Misremembered Podcast 138

CM Podcast 8 – Heroes – in your livingroom!

Hello and welcome back to another CM Podcast, faithful listeners.

This week Jon and I pick 3 comics each that we feel should be made into a cable TV series, Animated Series or Big Screen movie.

Jon’s Picks are:

  • Superior Spiderman storyline
  • The Legion of Doom – not based on any comic, just a series from the bad guys perspective.
  • East of West

My picks are:

  • Manhattan Projects
  • Saga
  • Strikeforce: Morituri

We each give a limited overview of the series we are pitching and tell you why it be good for TV or a movie.  We also hope to turn you on to new comics series that you are not reading and/or should pick up in tradepaper back.

What do you think of the picks?  What would you like to see as a series or movie?
