Brian and Liam’s Comic Picks of the Week:
Brian’s pick of the week:
Andre the Giant, Closer to Heaven
by Brandon Easton, Denis M. Medri
This lavishly illustrated authorized biography of pro wrestling legend Andre the Giant charts his entire life from the earliest days on his family’s farm to his blockbuster feuds with the biggest wrestling stars of all time, exploring the dark side of fame and fortune along the way.
Liam’s pick of the week:
A grand scale space opera about family, sacrifice, and survival told within an immense universe, both in scope and originality. A must-read cult spin-off of The Incal, by Moebius and Jodorowsky, centering around the fascinating lineage of the ultimate warrior. This collection introduces the Metabaron’s bloodline and reveals the origins of their deep-seated principles. Find out the source of the family’s vast wealth, learn why every Metabaron has cybernetic implants, and why the only way to become the next Metabaron is for him to defeat his own father in a mortal combat. Follow each successive generation as it struggles to overcome the forces amassed against it in a galaxy corrupted by greed, power, and terror. A true classic in the pantheon of graphic storytelling and Science Fiction as a whole.
Cover Story: X Files – Brian and Liam’s Five Favourite Episodes
It’s been 14 years since we saw The X-Files, in 2002, after nine seasons and a movie, the show wrapped up. There would be a second movie, but both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson went off to very successful careers. Many of the X Files alumni went on to do impressive things including James Wong, who created Final Destination, and Vince Gilligan who created Breaking Bad
The list of actors who would go on to fame after X Files is impressive too, Seth Green, Donal Logue, Tony Shaloub, Jack Black, Giovanni Ribisi, Jane Lynch, Felicity Huffman, Jewel Saite, Adam Baldwin, Ryan Reynolds, Shia Labouf, as well as Dean Norris, Aaron Paul, and Bryan Cranston, basically Vince Gilligan used X Files as auditions for the cast of Breaking Bad.
X-Files is back for a six episode mini-series, as we are recording this, two episodes have aired. Liam and I thought it might be a good time to talk about our five favourite episodes each of X-Files.
