Episode 38: I Was a Teenage Murdernerd

Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies! Our episode title this week is stolen straight from a joke Matt Fraction made on Twitter

Here's what we've got on tap for you this week:

  • This Week in Comics
    Hawkeye vs. Deadpool #2, She-Hulk #10, Rocket Raccoon #5, Captain Marvel #9 | Hawkeye vs. Deadpool shows us the softer side of Deadpool, but only for a minute; our lengthy She-Hulk mourning period continues; Skottie Young gives us his version of a functionally wordless comic; and Captain Marvel underwhelms.
  • This Week in the Book Report
    This week we talk about web content that makes the leap to print. Becca shares her taxonomy of blogs/websites that are most likely to get book deals, with additions by Allison, and we both share some of our favorite examples. They include Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson, featuring this amazing essay that will stay with you forever (No, really.); Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit; and Adulting by Kelly Williams Brown.
  • Television Shows Based on Comic Books
    This season has seen a deluge of comic book adaptations on television. We restrict our conversation to shows based on Marvel and DC comics airing on network television--Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Arrow, Constantine, Gotham, and The Flash. Hawkeye writer Matt Fraction sums up Gotham pretty succinctly on his Twitter feed here, here, and here. As for the others, tune in to find out just what we think of voice-overs, love interests, and cockroaches. Check out Wikipedia to find out what TV adaptations DC and Marvel have in the pipeline.

Thanks for listening!
