Reading is FUNdamental: James Bond by Warren Ellis

Girth Radio Presents…

My latest comic book spy thriller following Brubaker’s Velvet and Waid’s Black Widow…is Dynamite’s new James Bond series by Warren Ellis. You can listen to Andrew and I “Bond-ing” over this series in Geek Hard’s Back Issue Bloodbath Episode 61.

I’m a fan of double-crosses and double-agents…the morality of spies is just fascinating.

Reading is FUNdamental: Alias by Brian Michael Bendis

Girth Radio Presents…

Somewhere online I once saw a list of popular fictional private eyes…the standard gang of characters: Sherlock Holmes, The Hardy Boys, Kinsey Millhone etc. and there on that list of notable dicks was…Jessica Jones. Jessica stands out because her gumshoe niche tends to be…superheros. No matter her Alias she can’t get superheroes out of her life which is why Andrew and I investigate her dark world in  Geek Hard’s Back Issue Bloodbath Episode 58: A Look Back At Alias.

From November 2001 to January 2004 Alias ran for 28 issues under Marvel’s MAX imprint: their R rated comic book line. Totally dispensing with the typical  Comics Code Authority…take that Seduction of the Innocent. Swears, sex and seediness were all in play and Alias does not disappoint.

RTZ: Under President Trump Reading is Fundamental: A Fiction Action List

I wrote about the how mainstream media was sloppier than a sloppy joe in the Non-Fiction Action List. Here is the Fiction Action List. Fiction is way scarier than Non-Fiction. It’s one thing to know or understand something; that’s what Non-Fiction books do but you have to take that idea to its logical conclusion. (If you’re wrestling with the writer is “wrong” then you’ve missed the point entirely. Pass Go and don’t collect $200). Fiction takes the rationales we operate under…the ideas we explore to a logical conclusion; novels are hypotheticals rooted in real life.
