Welcome back Loony Listeners!
Yes, I'm back in the saddle to give you more of that goodness that is the ITK Newsletter! I'll get straight into it as I really do not know where this will take me, so consider this a stream-of-consciousness sort of writing effort!
First off, with our upcoming episode to be recorded this coming weekend, both Connorshu and I will be looking at the Moon Knight appearance in the latest Punisher issue by Matthew Rosenberg -
PHASE OF THE MOON: PUNISHER SNEAK ATTACK!
LUNAR-PICK: NEW COMIC BOOK REVIEW
lt should be an interesting one to go through but I've already heard from one of the Loonies (shout out to Loony Brian) that unfortunately Moon Knight's appearance is quite limited. To be honest...in the OLD days I would have been more disappointed.....NOW, since we know our boi is getting a series in December, and of course more attention due to the announcement of the TV show in 2021...I'm not too fussed that Moony has only a small dose in the Punisher comic.
We'll still try and do it justice too - truth be told, I was thoroughly enjoying the Rosenberg Punisher series and was collecting it for the first 12 issues or so, but ultimately had to let it go, due to my wallet slowly disappearing into the Negative Zone....
Similar to all the comic books we review, I'll chuck a Discussion thread on our social media for you all to leave feedback should you so wish (see below for standardised blurb) -
I'm quite eager to post a discussion thread about this and I'll be pushing for comments from you, my fellow dear Loonies! Yes, I'm sure there will be plenty to comment on, so please do not hesitate to pick up your pens (figuratively speaking) and write into us with your thoughts and points of discussion you'd like to hear on the show!
I'll leave this as a stock standard blurb from now on, for all discussion threads...click the links and read the italics below for some pointers in getting your thoughts in!
If you DON'T want your comments broadcast, please just add, "(DNB)" at the end of your comment, and we'll be sure not to broadcast it. We'll pick a few comments from here and discuss on the show!
If you aren't really a Facebook, Twitter or Instagram person, you can always reach us on any of the other platforms below -
We love hearing from you and typically your comments generate thought provoking discussion on the show and allows us to dive deeper into the issues - don't hesitate to give it a go!
The serial has been going very well so far, and forging ahead, things look rosy for the foreseeable future. Episode 5 of the serial is still a couple of weeks off just yet, but behind the scenes, I've been busy writing and asking Loonies if they want to participate in the audio play.
So far, I've got scripts up to Episode 9, and a full cast thereabouts for each of those episodes, so needless to say I'm quite excited about progressing this along.
I also have just come up with an idea which may very well blow the socks off of all the Loonies, so I'm just working through it but more on that to come in the near future.
What does the serial hold coming up? As mentioned, we'll see the mercs 'Geronimo' Johnson and 'Cold Case' Kurtz go head to head with a Bosqueverdian cartel; Connorshu returns with the help of another Loony, to foil the plans of one of Set's minions; Tommy will return to comb the streets in his own inimitable fashion; there will be a spotlight on the Big Bad himself, Set - the God of Chaos; and, Rebecca and Rey also return with a peek at yet another new character introduced in the ITK Universe...a familiar voice which I'm sure you'll dig....
There will also be other surprises in store...this thing is writing itself...it's so much fun!
If you want to be part of it, please do not hesitate to contact us at ITK...we would LOVE as many Loonies being a part of this as possible...
#ITKMoonKnight 2019 Fantasy Comic League - August Results and New Season
We still are awaiting the final results from the season - Brian the organiser has had a massive event with a new baby, so understandably, the FCL has taken a back seat.
What we do know, however, is that the #ITKMoonKnight division will be returning for another season commencing this month, September and running all the way through to December!
One of the High Priests, Connorshu sadly bows out due to a hectic lifestyle, but we welcome Tommy 'The Man on the Streets' friend Jason as the fifth member of the division. Drafting will commence as soon as we are able and I'll post up all the details once we are up and running!
Finally, no guest appearances for me this week. I'll be laying low and focusing just on ITK stuff - the upcoming episode, but also a bit of writing for the serial and a bit of editing for some episodes for ITK which I have already up my sleeve.
Well, that about covers it for this newsletter - keep reading good comics and as one Egyptian said to the other as they stumbled home from a drunken party along the Nile -
