Media Montage Podcast 67: Nexus - God Con

Nexus is an independent comic book from the minds of Mike Baron and Steve ‘The Dude’ Rude. It stars Horatio Hellpop as the great and powerful Nexus, a man tasked by the alien Merk with hunting down and executing the galaxy’s worst mass murderers from his base on the planet Ylum. 
In Nexus: God Con, Horatio and his lovely partner Sundra Peale deal with the arrival of all the One True Gods in the Universe to their cozy little world. 
Bruce and Larry take a look at this Nexus miniseries, its approach to controversial religious topics including Horatio’s crisis of faith, and confrontations with his (and the reader’s) conceptions of God. Religious stories can be a touchy subject, especially when some of your main characters are Jesus, Mohammed, the Buddha, Yahweh, and the embodiment of Evil. 
Are our hosts blasphemers, infidels, or true believers? …And does Bruce really know anything about Buddhism? Find out in Episode 67 of the Media Montage Podcast!

Media Montage Podcast 66: Grab Bag: Turtles, Fables, Avatar & More

This week Bruce and Larry take a bit of a breather and discuss a veritable grab bag of media releases they've been enjoying. 
We have recommendations of what to enjoy and what to avoid. We talk expectations, disappointments and more. 
Larry recommends the Fables: A Wolf Among Us video game, The Weirding Willows and Lumberjanes comics.
Bruce recommends rewatching Avatar: The Last Airbender and the current season of The Legend of Korra, and yes, even the new Ninja Turtles movie.
We also briefly tackle:
Wes Anderson movies 
What makes us leave comic book titles 
The ‘slow burn’ in long form stories, and when there is and is not an ultimate payoff to that burn
How lowering expectations can make for a better movie going experience
…and some of the things we have planned going in to year two of the Media Montage Podcast!
