After fully recovering from our Pond mourning, we are back at it with another action packed episode of Transmissions From Atlantis. This week, we discuss why George R.R. Martin’s flashbacks aren’t in the Game of Thrones series. We let you know about Chris Carter’s return to television, the latest on American Horror Story and a big time screen legend who is joining the True Blood cast. We give you our thoughts on Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem trailer plus some big news from the creator of the Walking Dead. And speaking of our favorite zombies – in Rita’s Reading Review we give you a comparison of the Walking Dead graphic novel and the television series.
In our retro review we give our full review of the Indiana Jones Blu-Ray box set.
If that doesn’t beat all – we still have our Doctor Who segment where we talk about Steven Moffatt’s alternate endings to the Angels Take Manhattan, which Weeping Angels story is the best and reveal the title for the opener of Series 7 part 2. Oh and we tell you what we mean by the death of Rose Tyler…its not what you think.

Welcome back to Chuck’n Comics where the geek is chic…always. Today I’d like to jump in the TARDIS and ride all timey-whimey back a few years to the release of Brian K. Vaughn’s Y: The Last Man Vol. 1. Y, the first volume in the graphic novels, begins the story of what if all the men on earth died. What was once a lewd sexual fantasy shared by many adolescent boys is brought to the harsh light of reality in an amazing story that grabs you from the first page.
Taken from Vertigo’s website: “Written by Brian K. Vaughan (Lost, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD, EX MACHINA) and with art by Pia Guerra, this is the saga of Yorick Brown—the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist and his pet monkey, Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he’s the last man on earth.” Continue reading

Admittedly, I’m a little late to the game with this one. It’s easy to miss a gem or two in the web-comic treasure chest that is the web, but there’s really no excuse for me to feature Gutters this far into my Web Picks. Like Let’s Be Friends Again, Gutters is a comic for comic fans. Unlike LBFA, Gutters uses a variety of artists tackle relevant topics about the characters we love and the industry that profits from them.
A perfect example is the most recent strip inspired by the release of a Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight comic written by Damon Lindelof. Artist “Hawk” mashes-up Batman with Lindelof’s best know property, LOST, resulting in the entire TV series solved in ten minutes by the detective in tights.
If you like meta-humor and know the in-jokes of the superhero biz, Gutters should be a tri-weekly stop for your browser. They update Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Great timing as we discussed this on this week’s Earth station one podcast.

The CBS television series “Jericho” debuted in 2006, and detailed the story of Jericho, Kansas following a major nuclear attack on the United States. Despite being beloved by fans, CBS canceled the series after its first season. After CBS received more than 40,000 pounds of nuts from motivated fans, the network reversed its decision to cancel “Jericho” and the series gained a second lease on life. While the show was canceled after a seven-episode second season.
Things looked bleak, until the series received a renewal of sorts — a comic book designed to act as the show’s third season. Originally published by Devil’s Due, IDW Publishing took over the rights and finished out the series. Now, IDW has announced that “Jericho” lives again, with “Jericho: Season Four” on the way in July from writer Kalinda Vazquez and artist Andrew Currie. The series features covers by Tim Bradstreet, and, like “Season Three” will be overseen by the show’s writers. Continue reading

Stop if you’ve heard this one before! The ESO crew gets deja vu all over again as we discuss the hot button topic of remakes in TV, movies, comic books, and more. Are they just money grabs or is imitation indeed the sincerest form of flattery? Mike, Mike, and Bobby point out the good, bad, and completely unnecessary. We also talk to Rebecca Perry about her spine-tingling experiences at the Days of the Dead show in Atlanta and artist Anthony Owlsey takes a turn in The Geek Seat. All this, plus the usual Rants, Raves, Shout Outs and Khan report!
Join us for yet another episode of The Earth Station One Podcast we like to call: Reboots, Reimaginings, Remakes & Relaunches. Oh my!

As nerds, we don’t like artists messing with our beloved characters. Whether it be a DC-wide refresh or a one-off redesign, some of us will always hit the message boards to point out the obvious. We don’t like change.
Or do we? Initial rage aside, we usually come around when the change is for the better. Variety is the spice of life, they say, and I’m always happy to see Wonder Woman dawn the battle armor or Green Lantern supplement his suit with a well placed construct. Too bad there isn’t a place I could go to see a line-up of elseworlds outfits for my favorite heroes…
Turns out there is, Project : Rooftop. It does for fan fic what Project Runway does for models–it plays dress-up. A picture is worth a 1000 words so…
