Comic-Book Adaptations That Went Astray – 4-Panel Vol. 2, Issue 53

Comic-Book Adaptations That Went Astray – 4-Panel Vol. 2, Issue 53

We’re kicking things off this week with a quick look at the new Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix as it’s a nice little prelude to our main topic – comic-book adaptations that strayed a lot from the source material (in both the bad ways and the good ways).

After that we have our usual look at the things we’ve been reading, which this week include Meyer by Jonathan Lang, Marvel’s Invaders, the second volume of Emanon (Emanon Wanderer), by Kenji Tsurata, The Girl In The Bay by J.M. De Matteis, and X-23: X-Assassin.

Also, we apologise for the problems with the audio in this episode.

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.
