ACC-tion Hero Shout Out!




Nov 23, 2019

With Bar Sinister and the literal layout of House of Summer, the X-titles are once again pushing the boundaries on romantic representation -- and ACC-tion heroes, we are here for it. In fact, we're here for it with two guests and a two-part show! Part one brings on our Senior X-Correspondent Kat Letho in to discuss X-men and romance in comics. In Part 2, we have Adam from Battle of the Atom joins us to discuss how the X-men have been fundamental to breaking heteronormative narratives!

On today’s episode of All Comics Considered, we’re going to talk about comics for all ages. And the reason we’re doing this is that we really do believe in being gate openers into the world of comic books. Grim and dark books simply aren’t going to be appropriate for a younger audience and we feel that they should have something to curl up with on the couch. 
Marty will be talking about Superman Smashes the Klan written by Gene Luen Yang and art by Gurihiru. In a world that keeps pushing towards a right wing, hateful place, everyone needs to follow Superman’s lead here.
Tim picked up David Peterson’s Mouse Guard, and it is a lush fantasy novel that features enticing character development, a feast for the eyes, and elements that reminded him of the Black Cauldron series.

Hi there Patrons and ACCtion Heroes!
The audio file says it all, but we have some formatting changes coming down the pike. We're spinning off Pullbox into its own weekly show. This way, we get to focus on our core mission of introducing new comics and comics-related media to our community. We tend to think of it as gate-opening. We are still going to do regular deep dives into other topics. For example, in the coming weeks, we have Immortal Hulk and Horror, Romantic Representation in Comics, and an interview with writer Jon Tsuei. But we're also adding a "lighter" topic into the rotation. Think of those topics as being palate cleansers for the dark and gritty Daredevil/Batman stories that Marty cannot stop bringing up. Examples of those topics include All Ages Media, State of the Arrowverse, and romance in general. Bookclub isn't going anywhere. In fact, this next bookclub will be Bone! And because Nick loves it so, we're going to do two whole shows on it, about a month apart. Look for our next Book Club vote in the coming weeks!
No matter what changes, our purpose remains the same: To open up the comics community so that it is welcoming to all people. Comics are for everyone, and we want to share the joy they bring with everyone. These changes let us double down on our commitment to you. The format changes are taking place this week. Let us know how we're doing either on Patreon or wherever you get your podcasts (ie a 5-star review would be great!)

The Episode Where I get to speak to Somer and Steve about Joker

Your guests are:

Steven Barnes
Somer Suter


Todd Phillips steps away from the dick and fart jokes, to try his hand at a serious movie, and the result was Joker. I had the feeling that this was going to be DC’s first breakout movie in the modern era, and wanted to talk to a couple of friends who saw the movie. In this episode, Producer Tim and Somer Suter talk for about an hour about Joker. What worked, what messages were being delivered, what didn’t work, and why, despite Somer’s disappointment, this was a good movie.

Hey there ACCtion heroes! Did you think we went on summer break without telling you? I, on behalf of the whole ACC crew, am so sorry we have been off for a few weeks. But we are back with at least two episodes ready to go!
In this week's episode, Tim and his lovely bride came to visit Chicago wherein pizza was tasted, ice cream was compared to Italian ice, coffee was consumed, and adventures were had. We also saw a little movie we like to call Nightmonkey Takes Europe, but what most of the critics are calling Spider-Man: Far From Home.
I think we also talked about Hulk, Green Lantern, and Chip's Daredevil run, but we didn't get all of that on tape.
