We are 75% back to normal dear Firesiders... well whatever constitutes normal now. That’s right Fireside Family, Mendte is joined by two familiar voices, Features and Baby Huey. Maurer is... well he’s... he wanted to record but he couldn’t get past the desktop. With Mendte, Features, Baby Huey, and a heaping pile of New News to get through, it’s time to get the show on the road again... Well... over Skype I mean... I miss comic cons... ANYWAYS... not only did Marvel switch up some characters powers again, Sony talks about the live action SpiderVerse rumors, and Hellstrom is out in Hulu, and you can now buy the Animated Death in the Family form DC... but don’t. Well tell you why and much more. Press play and Welcome to Fireside.
We did it Firesiders! We actually have a Friday show for you! It only took 37 years but we made it happen. PLUS It’s a Fightclub! That’s right Fireside faithful, it’s the show we’re we, the hosts of Fireside, see if we can take on the most powerful characters in comics. Join Mendte, Features, and joining us once again, Guyver as they go toe to toe with the newest characters coming to Disney Plus, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She Hulk. Armed with one (sometimes two) weapons found in the MCU, hear how the guys would fare in a fight with Bendy Girl, Mr. Knight, and Gamma Gal. Welcome to Fireside.
Welcome and Hello internets! We have another “we feel bad that things aren’t back to normal, so here is another extra long issue” issue of that sweet new news. Late shift has claimed Baby Huey along with Maurer now so its Features, Mendte, and a new voice on the show, Guyver (yes like the anime). The trio go down rabbit hole after rabbit hole and a **SPOILER WARNING** is in effect. They talk about Venom and the King in Black, another Avenger picking up Thor’s hammer, a quick SPOILER review for the Boys season 2, Doctor Strange in Spider-Man 3, and so much more. Let’s stop wasting time. Welcome to Fireside.
Welcome back Fireside faithful. We are still getting the our feet back under us, but that new news is only new until its replaced with new new news. So while this will be our only show this week, we have plenty to chat about. Join Mendte, Baby Huey, and (back from an Electro induced blackout) P. Features as they serve up an hours worth of that Comic Related Current Events that can’t wait another week. From Valiant’s relaunch of Harbinger, the Season 10 Finale of The Walking Dead, The X-Men, The G-Men, and Kamala Khan - all the way to Jamie Fox changing the way we look at the future of the MCU. We have a lot to go over, let’s jump into it. Hit play and Welcome to Fireside.
We are back Fireside family... well, sort of. We couldn’t just not post anything dear Firesiders, but the storm has yet to subside. That hasn’t stopped that new news from piling up though. Join Mendte and Baby Huey, once again keeping this leaky ship afloat a little longer until Features and Maurer can join us once again. Today’s hour long show will tackles everything from The potential future of Venom’s son, Flash’s surprising final battle with Revers Flash, THAT WandaVison trailer, and so much more. There won’t be a Friday show, but we will absolutely be back next week. Welcome to Fireside.
What’s going on dear Firesiders, and welcome to the low-key Friday show. I know we said no Friday show, but we were joking… obviously… Maurer. Anyways, Join Mendte and Baby Huey for a little steaming service surfing. Not long ago we talked about what else Netflix had to offer comic fans, so today we tackle Amazon’s Prime Video. With the popularity of the Boys it only makes sense. From the Tick to Gun Akimbo, check out what else Prime Video has to offer a comic fan. Welcome to Fireside. P.S. we also talk PS5 Miles Morales because COME ON! HOW COULD WE NOT?
Welcome back Fireside Faithful! Wednesdays have become one of the only anchors of time I have left. When in doubt, I know what day of the week it is based on new comics and new news! Join Mendte, Maurer, and Babu Huey (Features power is out, so… yeah. Needless to say he couldn’t make it) as they recap the last weeks comic related current events. From a fresh (yet nostalgic) take on Death in the Family, Black Lightnings scooping up a Batman villain, Ant-Man and the Wasp casting, and more Ray Fisher/ Geoff Johns drama- now with a heaping side of Jason Momoa. Let’s just get into it. Welcome to Fireside.
Greeting and salutation dear Firesiders! Welcome back and welcome to A Day! Today it’s time to dive into Square Enix’s Avengers. Most of us have it and beat it by now (spoilers ahead if you haven’t), but regardless… it’s time to talk. Join Mendte, Maurer, Features, and Baby Huey as they dissect the biggest crossover of comics and video games since Sony’s Spider-Man. Is it the Marvel Masterpiece they were hoping for, or just a glorified mobile game? Hear what the guys think about the gameplay, the story, the characters, and maybe most importantly - it’s future. Pick your Avenger, your companions, and press play. Welcome to Fireside
Welcome back, Hello, hello, and beep you dear Firesiders! It’s Wednesday and the gang is back together to deliver another heaping batch of that sweet, sweet, new, news. Thats right Fireside Family, Maurer is finally back from his moonlighting with the villainous Late Shift. The guys, now at full strength, have gathered the worthiest of news for you ears and enjoyment. From a new trailer for Shang-Chi .1, Review bombing the Boys, more Ray Fisher/WB crossfire, a sad drop off for the New Mutants, and as always, much much more. Let’s get this show on the road. Mind hitting play? Cool. Thank you. Oh, and Welcome to Fireside.
Welcome back fireside faithful to the Wednesday on Friday show! That’s right, you still got a heaping dose of the sweet, sweet, new, news coming your way. Join Mendte, Features, and Baby Huey as they play a little catch up with those comic related current events you have come to expect… just a few days later. From Batman’s Day, as well as his new diagnosis sadly… to convoluted Daredevil, and One trick Tony’s new resurrection ability. Plus much much more… like Laser babies. Yes. You read that right. Welcome to Fireside.
Welcome back dear Firesiders. Today we are not going to talk about the news like we normally do. There is really only one story that deserves the spotlight, and thats moarning and celebrating Chadwick Bosman who sadly passed away at the age of 43. When Black Panther first came out we had Ismail Amir on the show (who hosted a podcast at the time about Black Culture, especially in Philly) to talk, not only about the Comic side of the movie, but also its cultural relevance. Today Amir joins Mendte, Maurer, and Features again to help celebrate the life and achievements of Chadwick; from his performances, to his charitable work, to who he was as a person, how he saw the world, and how he influenced it. It’s a sad day. Rest in peace. Rest in power. Wakanda Forever.
Ok Firesiders, it’s time to talk about he best that DC’s Fandome had to offer! Wednesday we talk about some of the announcements, but we held off on the most exciting announcements until today. They deserve their own show. Join Mendte, Features, and Baby Huey as they talk about DC’s most exciting line up to date. From Wonder Woman and Black Adam, to The Suicide Squad and The Batman. Let’s not waste anymore time and get into it. It’s not just dope, it’s Super... even duper dope. Welcome to Fireside.
Welcome back Firesiders, it’s Fandome time! That’s right, DC had its virtual fandom event which was full of that sweet, sweet, new news. So much so that we are going to have to split this up. DC wasn’t the only company creating those comic related current events we tend to cover on Wednesdays... just most of it. Join Mendte, Features, and Baby Huey as they ease us into the awesome onslaught on DC coming attractions and more. From Milestone coming back, what’s going on with Flash’s show and movie, the Suicide Squad AND Batfamily games in the works, to a new Iron Patriot, and a 90’s marvel hero that wasn’t reborn. Let’s get this going. Welcome to Fireside.
Welcome back Fireside faithful, let’s try something new. Since we haven’t had a theatrical comic book movie to watch (let alone review) we thought we would see what originals these streaming services have to offer for comic fans. There is no better streaming service to start with than the granddaddy of them all, Netflix. Join Mendte, Features, and Baby Huey as they talk about some of their favorite Netflix bingeworthy gems. Excluding the Marvel shows of past, the guy list and review. From the obvious selections like Umbrella Academy, and Transformers, to lesser known options like Raising Dion and Ultarman. So if you are as bored as we are over here, we all know have some binging to do. Welcome to Fireside.
