Holonet HQ | Talkin’ about Lord and Miller

June 28, 2017

Jim is flying Solo (get it, "Solo"... heh heh... heh) this week in a chat about the goings-on the Holonet HQ Facebook Group, as well as the little kerfuffle you might've heard about going-down at Pinewood Studios last week. You know, the one where Christopher Miller and Phil Lord were fired by the Powers That Be at Lucasfilm with only 3 weeks of principal photography left to shoot for the "Untitled Han Solo Spinoff Movie"? I try not to ramble too, too much about it, but there is a certain stream-of-consciousness to the podcast that I'm curious if you like or not.

"Holonet HQ" is the official podcast of the Facebook group of Star Wars fans of the same name. The group is now live on Facebook, and we'd love for you to join us! (We do ask that you request to join the group so our Jedi Moderators can be assured you're not a Sith Lord in disguise or anything) If you're not on Facebook but would like to contact us about the content of this, or our previous episode, we'd still love to hear from you! We're part of the Graphic Contect Podcast Feed so we're on Twitter @graphicpodcast, or you can send us a long-form email to thereal.graphiccontent@gmail.com.

So until next time, May the Force be With You... Always.


Graphic Content Podcast 20 | Father’s Day

June 22, 2017

Join Jim, Adam, and new occupier of the guest seat Chris as the trio discuss the best, and absolute worst dads in comics. Recorded on Father's Day 2017 no less! I have to say that, and maybe I'm biased, but that this show really has one of the widest ranges of characters we've discussed since the beginning of the show, so we hope you like it.

And if you did, or even if you didn't, we'd love to hear your thoughts about it. You can contact us via email: thereal.graphiccontent@gmail.com, or on Twitter where you can find us @graphicpodcast. We also share all kinds of art and other kinds of fun stuff on Instagram where you can find us @graphiccontent.podcast. And finally, you can see all kinds of news and teases for upcoming episodes (including our new show about all things Star Wars called "Holonet HQ") on our official FB page which can be found at facebook.com/graphicpodcast.

So like we say at the end of each episode: go read a comic! And after you're done, listen to Graphic Content...


Holonet HQ | Episode I — Past & Present

June 20, 2017

It's with great pleasure that I announce the latest edition to the Graphic Content Podcast Feed, HOLONET HQ! On this show, Jim is joined by a group of friends to talk about (which you might have guessed from the name of the show) STAR WARS! In this episode, Jim and his friends Rachael, Johnathan, and Chris talk about how they discovered the stories from a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, and all the way through to their impressions of the trailer for Episode VIII: The Last Jedi! Oh, Jim brings in a special guest from the SW Universe to help him keep this a PG-13 rated podcast.

If you'd like to get in touch with us, we'd love to hear from you! You write us an email to our addy thereal.graphiccontent@gmail.com. Or if you'd like to keep it short and sweet, you can hit us up on Twitter @graphicpodcast. On the next episode, we will post our first actual play session of our campaign "Legacy of the Jedi" using the Fantasy Flight Games "Force and Destiny" RPG. So until next time, May the Force be With You... Always.


Graphic Content | Actually Playing — Fate Accelerated Session 0

June 19, 2017

There's a lot of geeky things that Jim enjoys, and if you've ilstened to any of our feed's previous shows you know that he's a HUGE comic book geek. Seriously, he's huge -- like 6'7", big dude. Anyhoo, one of the other fun (& definitely geeky) hobbies he enjoys is sitting down for a good old fashioned role playing game, a.k.a. RPG. If you're unfamiliar of the term, perhaps you're more familiar with the granddaddy of all RPGa: Dungeons and Dragons! Essentially it's a game of "make believe" we played with kids with a set of rules facilitated by funny-looking dice that can range from very rules-light, to extremely rules-heavy which RPG-enthusiasts call "Crunch".

Fate Accelerated is not one of those crunchy games.

It's a system that provides a loose structure for the GM (Game Master, or as a sportsball enthusiast would call, "a referee") to pretty-much create a world based on the shared imagination of the GM & his players. In this inaugural episode of Actually Playing, Graphic Content's Jim Mason is joined by his friends Brian, Carter, Mike, and Isaac (the GM) as they're introduced to a world not much unlike their own. Except perhaps for the presence of the likes of hedge wizards, werewolves, and the undead in a game Isaac best-describes as "Horror Noir" roleplaying.

We hope you like the show. Let us know what you think via email to our addy thereal.graphiccontent@gmail.com. We're also on many of the socials like on Twitter @graphicpodcast, Instagram @graphiccontent.podcast, or on our office FB page found at http://facebook.com/graphicpodcast . We look forward to the feedback!

And now, on with the show...



Graphic Content Flashback Special! | Mission Command Episode 1

June 15, 2017

While we wait for our scientists in the GCP Laboratory to finish tweaking the "Top Secret Project", we thought you might be interested in the podcast that started it all. No, not v1.0 of Graphic Content, I'm talking about the podcast that spawned that show. Of course I'm talking about the famous MISSION COMMAND PODCAST! Wait... you never heard of it? Well that can't be true, I know at least 20 people who heard it. Really!

Seriously, this was my very first foray into podcasting, and I had a blast doing it while we did with my friends Cody, Damon, and Mike. Like I said in the intro, for some insane reason we all thought that it'd be a great idea to get up super-early on Sunday mornings to reccord our thoughts on all things nerdy and awesome! In this episode, besides learning how to record people talking for listening on the internet, we discuss movie and TV casting, the comics we were reading, and Mike debuts a little diddy from Wizards of the Coast called the 5th edition D&D Starter Set that just came out (I wonder how that game is doing now, hmmm...)

Anyhoo, we hope you enjoy the episode. If you would like to hear more from the Mission Command Archives, let us know via the contacts below. So until next time, go read some comics! And after you're done with those, listen to Graphic Content!

Graphic Content Flashback Episode 3!

June 8, 2017

In this episode of our look back to the original version of the show we listen back to when Dave, Isaac, and Mike talked about the titles they read in August of 2014. Some of them were awesome (The Fade Out by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, as well as the Wicked + The Divine by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie), some made them scratch their heads (Multiversity #1 by Grant Morrison and Ivan Reis), and another seemed like it made them wish for their time back (Joshua Williamson's "The Devillers"). They also continue their "Comic Book Club" series with a look at the collection of Jeff Lemire's classic, "Essex County."

While we love to look back at the original show, we also want to look forward. Have a request for a book or webcomic in need of a review? Or are you a creator interested in talking to us on the show about your work? We'd love to hear from you. You can drop us a line at thereal.graphiccontent@gmail.com! We're also on pretty much all of the social media platforms out there: Twitter @graphicpodcast, Instagram @graphiccontent.podcast, and our official FB Page under "Graphic Content Podcast". So with all that out of the way might I suggest to go read a comic? And after that, listen to Graphic Content :-)


Graphic Content Podcast Ep 19 | Wonder Woman Movie Review!!

June 5, 2017

On this special episode of Graphic Content, Jim and Adam are joined by first-time guest in-studio Rachael Cathcart, as well as returning guest (& author of the Mecha vs. Kaiju Fate RPG books) Johnathan Wright! Why are four voices needed on this podcast? Why, to review the latest release from the DCEU Wonder Woman of course! Does the movie live up to the hype? Is the 96% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes a glitch in the system? Can Adam really compare his hair to Gal Gadot's? All this and much, much more can be found in this episode of the Graphic Content podcast!

As always, you can follow us on just about all the social medias where you can "LIKE" our official Facebook page found at http://facebook.com/graphicpodcast. The show is also on Twitter @graphiccontent, & on Instagram @graphiccontent.podcast! You can also send us long-form missives via email addressed to thereal.graphiccontent@gmail.com, we promise to read the email you send us on the next show!

(Unless you're the prince of a foreign nation who wants to have me hold $10,000.00 for you, then that'd be a no. That gag's all played-out pal...)

So remember, after you're done reading your comics, listen to Graphic Content!


Graphic Content Podcast Ep 18 Pt 2 | Superheroes in Animation!

June 1, 2017

The conversation just couldn't end with the guys talking *just* about Teen Titans: The Judas Contract Direct-to-Video feature from WB Animation, could it? In a word: nope. In this part of their chat, they talk about some of the various superhero animated shows they've watched, and callout their favorites over the years. There's some obvious choices on this list, but there's one you might not have heard of, so tune in to find out...

GCP Episode 18 Pt 1 | Teen Titans: The Judas Contract Review

June 1, 2017

Join Jim, Adam, and special guest Manny Gomez for our review of the recent Direct-to-Video release from WB Animation, "Teen Titans: The Judas Contract." What did the guys think of it? Could it possibly live up to the what is arguably one of the greatest comic book storylines of all time? Well, just sit back, relax, and let these three friends hash it out then rate it on a 1-5 scale, this time of Terra's floating rocks... :-)

Graphic Content Flashback Episode 2!

May 30, 2017

Come back in time with us to the summer of 2014 when v1.0 of the show starring Cody, Dave, Isaac, and Mike as they talked about the comics they were reading back then. Titles like Marvel's "Elektra" #1 by Haden Blackman and Michael del Mundo, DC/Vertigo's "Bodies" (#1 of 8) by various writer/artist teams, Rick Remender's and Greg Tocchini's "Low" #1 from Image, and "Outcast" #1 by Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta also from Image. Plus in the issue, Jim finally gets the chance to respond to the allegations that he actually paid good money to see the Jennifer Garner "Elektra" film in the theatre...

...okay, he did. But he says why he did that. And actually it makes it kinda worse. Nice work genius.

Anyhoo, we hope you like this episode of Graphic Content Flashback, our new series where we look back on the original incarnation of the show from 2014, to see how the industry is still in many ways the same, and how it's completely different in some others. If you'd like to make contact with us at Graphic Content, you can hit us up on Twitter @graphicpodcast, Instagram @graphiccontent.podcast, or via email where our address is thereal.graphiccontent@gmail.com. We hope to hear from you soon!
