Summary: Comic Book focused news and reviews brought to you twice each week. Join us as we analyze the newest comic current events and debate the weekly hot topics that every comicbook geek wonders about. Welcome to our multiverse. Welcome to Fireside.
***Spoiler Warning*** The League has been united Firesiders. We all watched as this movie went through a lot of twists, turns, and turmoil to get here, and it’s finally been released. Now all that’s left is to talk about it. Join Mendte, Maurer, and Featurs as they talk everything Justice League. Did Joss make it better? Who’s performance stole the movie? How was Steppenwolf compared to other superhero villains? If you’ve seen the movie, jump in and join us for a no holds bar, spoiler filled Justice League review. If not, go see it and catch up. Welcome to Fireside.
We don’t have time Firesiders! We don’t have time to explain that it’s Wednesday, and that this day of the week is saved for new comics and new news. We don’t have time for some hopefully witty joke as we let you know that Mendte, Maurer, and Features hold down this issue. There is just too much news. Justice League is tip of the iceberg. We also have stories about Kick-Ass, Punisher, Marvel, Wolverine, Captain America, Arrow, and way more. We don’t have time, so tune in and let’s get this going. Welcome to Fireside.
You might not like this one Firesiders. You may look at your favorite hosts differently by the shows end. Mendte, Maurer, Features, and good Ol’ Schucky a.k.a. Ian talk about their unpopular comic opinions. Looking into the comment section of some comic faux pas, you will see some visceral, and hateful responses... So we figured, what about us? What are our unpopular comic opinions. Strap in and prepared to be annoyed as the Fireside guys spill the beans on what would normally be blasphemous to say out loud. Do you agree with any of them? Welcome to Fireside.
There are no dry eyes in the Kingdom this week. They have lost their beloved Shiva, the King has suddenly lost his thespian accent and most of their soldiers have become hungry for human flesh. Ian fights back his tears as Shiva is surrounded. While Mendte snickers at Morgan attempting to fight Jesus. Nice try. Join our walker stalkers as they are joined by non other than Felix Hergood of the Emergent Gamer to discuss the ups and downs of Season 8, Carol’s return to form and all things Walking Dead. Welcome to Fireside.

***Spoiler Alert*** The crowds are roaring Firesiders. Sparkles, the lord of thunder in one corner, and the Grandmasters champion in the other. As these titans get ready to battle it out in one of the greatest MCU movies to date, the hosts of these chats sit like a bunch of Dougs. Mendte, Features, and Baby Huey sit down with fellow Fireside film fanatic, Damian and practically gush over the Mightiest avengers newest movie. How does Ragnarok change things for the MCU?

Keith Thomas is a true inspiration to anyone who has met him. With his cheshire smile and a comedic timing that rivals the best stand ups, he always lit up any conversation he was a part of. Keith was an amazing story teller with many projects under his belt. Each one had a special place in his heart and he never shied away from discussing them. Telling the stories behind the stories was the equivalent to pulling a picture of his kid from his wallet. This pride was infectious and never off putting. This was all because at any moment Keith was willing to stop what he was doing just to listen to anything his friends wanted to talk about. Whether it be a project they were working on or a movie they recently watched. Nothing was too big or too small of a topic. None of this compares to the support and wisdom he shared with those privileged enough to call him a friend. Keith’s pride and passion for his own work pales in comparison to that he had of his friends. His would do anything he could to promote, advise, or support. These are just a few reasons that were are proud to have Keith as part of the Fireside Family. This week we lost Keith to an aggressive battle with cancer. It only seemed fitting that we take this time to celebrate him and post some of our favorite moments he shared with us in lieu of a new issue.
