Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. One Shot: Marvel 75 Years From Pulp To Pop!


LOGO LoS 168x168

The @LegendsOfShield (Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D.) Agents Lauren, Haley and Stargate Pioneer are joined for a fourth consecutive week by special guest, stowaway and Consultant Agent Wing as they break down the ABC television special Marvel 75 Years From Pulp To Pop! They also discuss the week in Marvel news, and enjoy all the awesome Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. feedback.


In this episode our hosts announce their new YouTube channel where they will also upload the podcasts to. Stargate Pioneer announces he has a beard and the other hosts agree it is a beard of evil. Also, Wing announces his goatee of evil and his gross facial hair growth technique. For Halloween Agent Lauren combined several of her favorite things and created one of the most fantastic costumes ever (see her twitter feed for a picture @sithwith) her idea for a sexy Thangorodrim from The Silmarillion fell through. No one got Stargate Pioneer’s GeekJersey.com X-Wing pilot costume. Nightwing did his annual Clark Kent costume and Haley didn’t dress up as anything and had no candy for trick or treaters. And Agent Lauren announced she loved to trick or treat at the drug dealer’s houses for full sized candy bars when she was growing up.


The foursome discuss who “THE Ralph Macchio” is and that Ralph Macchio the actor is NOT Ralph Macchio the Marvel comic editor. They also discuss a potential relationship between Ward and Taskmaster. Haley brings up that she thinks that Skye’s dad is Black Bolt’s brother, Maximus The Mad.


Haley’s not-seen movie list now includes: Showgirls, Top Gun, Skyfall, Magic Mike, Starman and Highlander. And Agent Haley’s excellent marketing idea in China for a giant robot head in Guardians Of The Galaxy definitely qualify her for a marketing job at Marvel. And Stargate Pioneer wonders if Haley Atwell made a mistake in filming and actually hit Clark Gregg during her Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. guest spot coming up on November 18th, 2014.


Lauren and her husband Scott came up with the theory that Heimdall probably knows that Loki is acting as Odin. And everyone is looking forward to Groot Christmas trees.


Both Nightwing and Lauren enjoyed the Daredevil movie. And Lauren is REALLY looking forward to the Jessica Jones’ Netflix series. And three of the four hosts would like to see a Black Widow movie (hint: Not Nightwing). Lauren is uuber excited about the upcoming Attack On Titan – Marvel crossover. And Lauren is also interested in writing for Marvel comics (and she is available too!).


Stan Lee is Marvel in soo many ways.


Stargate Pioneer certainly didn’t mind Emily Vancamp (Agent 13) touching Lola – big surprise there. He also mentions that this special is a good start for someone that didn’t know much about Marvel comics. If you’d like to delve deeper into the runnings of Marvel over the past 75 years, there’s the Stan Lee Biopic “With Great Power,” Fedric Wertham’s “Seduction Of The Innocent,” Superdickery.com’s Batman’s Boners, Stan Lee’s Mutants, Monsters & Marvels, and Comic Book Superheroes Unmasked.


The four round out the podcast by discussion what the most influential comic book movie was from the 1978 Superman The Movie on. Movies discussed include Superman The Movie, Batman 1989, X-Men, and Iron Man 2008.

Wednesday’s Webcomic: Battlepug


Sometimes a webcomic is born from a strange place. In this case, an established mainstream print comic artist designed a t-shirt on the fly. The characters on the silly t-shirt became so wildly popular that a weekly webcomic had to follow, because the clamors of internet could not be denied. I mean really, who could deny the sweet, gigantic face of BattlepugThe Battlepug itself is the giant, fearsome mount of mighty barbarian mage-warrior, who is on quest for vengeance against those who destroyed his family. In an age lost to time, where bandits roam and kings squabble over petty grievances, a malevolent wizard is using giant, adorable beasts to destroy a seemingly random sequence of towns and villages. Our hero, the Warrior, is the lone survivor of one of these attacks. As he journeys to find vengeance against the mage he is joined on his quest by the massive and lovable Battlepug, a mad old hermit, a foul-mouthed and powerfully magical child, and a fearsome female soldier.

Battlbug is a tongue-in-cheek look at the pulp novels of the past, and the characters almost always approach their absurd situations with complete seriousness. This is a sword and sorcery comedy, although there are hints of a more serious storyline beneath it. The art is reminiscent of pulp novel covers and illustrations as well. It is brightly colored and richly detailed. THe characters are expressive and original, and every single one of the massive Battlepug’s sweet, derpy expressions warm my heart and make me squee! Even if he is rampaging through a battle! Who can say no reading more comics with that face? As an added bonus, fan’s pug pictures are featured on Fridays! The comic itself updates with excellent punctuality on Mondays. In 2012, it won the Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic. The first volume has been published by Dark Horse.

The Author and his Other Work 

Mike Norton is the writer and artist for Battlepug, and is the owner of a pug named Ninja. He has an impressive comics resume that includes the Waiting Place, Runaways, and Green Arrow/Black Canary as well as many others. He has also recently been working on Revival with Tim Seeley, to much critical acclaim. The colors are done by Allen Passalaqua, a photographer and colorist who has worked on Justice Socitey of America, Spiderman, Green Arrow and Black Canary.

A Boy and his Dog.

Our hero meets his mighty steed.
