Another week, another bunch of crazy episodes of The Young Pope and Taboo to dig into. There was a common theme (somehow), and the guys make sure to give it the attention it deserves (NO SPOILERS!). Then Pat schools Chris on Ghost in the Shell (sorta), and they review the only thing matters from the film’s new trailer: THAT BODY SUIT.
…to keep talking about Westworld! After a little chat about Billy Bush and Luke Cage (not simultaneously), Pat and Chris dive into the second episode of HBO’s new Sunday night drama. Then, in the conclusion you’ve all been waiting for, Chris gives his reviews of In the Heart of the Sea and Deadpool. Needless to say, Pat’s heart is once again broken. Chris is unrepentant. They make up. It gets weird. You know….the usual.

Mike & Rus are back, just in time to discuss the time-travel riddled Season 2 finale of The Flash! Apologies for the poor quality of Rus’s audio; he apparently doesn’t know how to work his mic.
With at least 5 speedsters in this episode and at least 3 instances of time-travel by at least 2 of those speedsters, Rus needs Mike’s help to get up to speed on both The Flash in DC Comics and on Barry Allen’s actions and motivations in this episode. The two discuss the implications of Flash’s actions on the growing CW’s DC superhero universe, and Mike threatens to turn his back on the show if there’s too much soap opera type human interactions in the Season 3 premiere this fall. Rus is all geek-giddy seeing 1990’s TV Flash, John Wesley Shipp, suited up as The Flash once again, but this time as Earth 3’s Jay Garrick Flash, who is inspired by DC Comics’ golden age Flash.
Run, Barry, run!
Part 2 (Electric Boogaloo) consists of a long and most excellent interview with The Up Late Network’s own Rus Wooton (Crowdfinders #36, before Crowdfinders was a part of the Network), and a talk with Olivia Li about Boundless, the science comics anthology that features, among other great talents, Dave, straight from this very podcast.
Check out the Boundless Anthology!
Welcome to the Crowdfinders 50th episode SPECTACULAR! This action packed show is David’s way of thanking you, dear and gentle Crowdfinders for the support you showed in getting him all the way to episode 50. He couldn’t have done it without you; he wouldn’t have done it without you.
This episode contains:
- Shoutouts to, and updates from, former Crowdfinders
- Interviews with former Crowdfinders:
- A promotion of David’s very own Kickstarter: He was accepted to the Boundless Anthology of Science Comics with his artist and co-creator Rayna, Please follow this link if you are interested in supporting the Kickstarter!
David had the pleasure of talking with Bobby Torres, a scrappy yet meticulous up-and-comer in the indie comic book world. They talk about Bobby’s journey developing his incipient career while balancing family and two jobs (the second of which he took to pay for his comic book habit). All of us can learn a lot from this guy, and if you’re anything like David, you can take away a little bit of inspiration as well.
Just over two weeks, and Rus & Pat are back! This is another 2 hour episode, but it’s basically two episodes in one. It starts with a brief discussion of Patrick Warburton and Louis CK, leading into the now-late Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) which leads into talking about the ’80s show Remington Steele, Pierce Brosnan, and James Bond and Batman films. They then get into who would make a cool villain in the upcoming film Spider-Man • Homecoming. The second half of this episode has the guys talking about personal comics projects they’re working on these days when they should be sleeping (according to doctors — what do they know?).
