Patreon Preview: Fantastic Four - The Rise of the Silver Surfer

Surprise! Since our last episode, we launched a Patreon Page! It's been up a week, and we've been having a ton of fun with those that have already joined. However, if you don't follow us on Twitter & Instagram, we wanted to make you aware of what's been going down. We've raised the paywall on our first episode, and dropped it into this feed, so you can give a listen to what we're doing over there. We hope you join us in this next venture in Comic Book Couples Counseling. It's an investment on your part to make sure this show keeps on chugging. Welcome to Comically Reel, our brand-new spin-off podcast where we devour and discuss cinematic comic book adaptations. In our first episode, we travel back to a time before the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where 20th Century Fox dominated the superhero market with their X-Men franchise, and we're attempting to replicate another success in Marvel's first family, The Fantastic Four.   Directed by Tim Story, "Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer" landed with a soft thud in 2007. Lisa never bothered to watch it back in the day, but ever determined to consume every single comic book movie, Brad jammed it hard into his eyeballs. Initially, he did not like it. However...   The world of pop culture changed dramatically during the last thirteen years. Lisa and Brad are different kinds of movie and comic book obsessives today. They adore the FF now more than ever, and the Silver Surfer has risen as one of their favorite comic book characters. Also, Chris Evans is full-time FLAME ON whether he's the Human Torch or Captain America. That's just a fact.   Revisiting the sequel, they were incredibly surprised by their reaction. Is it good? Bad? Underrated? Great? Join us to find out.   Also, how rad is our Jack Kirby intro music this week? That comes courtesy of Adam ILLUS Wallenta. Be sure to follow him on YouTube and Twitter. You can purchase his CDs HERE, find him on Bandcamp HERE, Spotify HERE, Apple Music HERE, and Tidal HERE.   As always you can follow the podcast on Instagram and Twitter @CBCCPodcast, and you can follow hosts Brad Gullickson @MouthDork & Lisa Gullickson @sidewalksiren.
