Hope your week has been well - things at Grant Mansion have been going swimmingly, with a healthy listenership (we are on track to top our last month's listens, which incidentally is currently the highest month of listens for the show!) and a steady increase in Loony members for the ITK Facebook Group...Khonshu really has blessed us!
I also want to formally welcome into the fold two OG Loonies who have contributed so much to both the ITK community and the podcast over the past year.
Tommy 'The Man on the Street' Kawel and Chad 'The Poser of Chad' Jernigan are now official admins to the ITK group and think of them as our US contingent. It'll be so valuable to have eyes on the ground for the US die of things, and with our ever growing group, it's in no more capable hands than Tommy and Chad, to ensure the ITK community expands and evolves - thank you so much, and welcome again guys!
As for what's coming in store for our podcast episode this week, I'm very pleased to say that due to popular demand (and of course the phase of the Moon)...yes, you guessed it...we'll be covering a discussion on the indelible 90's arc 'Round Robin - A Sidekick's Revenge!' from the pages of the Amazing Spider-Man!
PHASE OF THE MOON: WAXING GIBBOUS
OVER THE MOON ARC REVIEW:
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, VOL. 1 , ISSUES #353-358 - 'ROUND ROBIN - A SIDEKICK'S REVENGE!'
The Waxing Gibbous foretells that we should do a trade/arc review, and what better one to choose than the super team up of Moon Knight with the likes of Spidey, the Punisher, Night Thrasher, Darkhawk and Nova!
Don't think Moon Knight gets lost in the mix, because he most certainly does not! In fact, the villains of the arc are built around one of the characters form Moon Knight's past - that of Jeff Wilde, aka Midnight!
The fun doesn't stop there, as we have a guest Loony again on the show - this time, it's ISLA RA alumni, Rick 'The Rickball Special' Gentusa dusting off the mic and joining in on the discussion. Rick is a massive 90's fan, so this episode is one you do not want to miss!!
We'll also have a second guest on the show too, if one wasn't enough! Backing up from his awesome episode where he and friend Chris hosted a review on the 'Round Robin Prelude' of sorts, Josh 'Geronimo' Johnson will also join us for this epic discussion!! Should be HEAPS of fun!
I'll post up a Discussion Thread as usual in the Facebook Page and Group, so please be sure to get your thoughts and feedback into the show. If you aren't on Facebook, don't let that stop you! Check out below for other ways to get into contact with us - we'd love to hear from you!
Luckily too, the issues up for this review are easily accessible, thanks to digital and it being collected in a collection trade.
You should be able to find the 'Round Robin..' arc on -
That's it from me! Hope to catch you around our group.! Big Moony thank-yous all around!!
