Our Giant-Size Annual!



Comic book annuals have been around for a long time, but the attention they receive, especially today, are a mixed bag, compared to their ongoing titles. At their height, annuals cronicalled the most important stories of our favorite characters. And at their lowest… filler stories given to “new” talent to test their skills. To comic collectors, all issues matter, or at least they SHOULD. Too many fans fear that the next Annual they pick up is just going to be a filler story. The sometimes multiple tales appearing inside an annual SHOULD deliver world building, SHOULD deliver character development, or at the very least, SHOULD deliver action packed entertainment!

Regardless of a mashing of smaller stories or connection to a universe reaching cross over, at the heart of the Annual debate is still the worry “Do these stories matter?” During OUR Giant-Size Annual, we’ll be asking YOU the same questions as we fill this episode to the brim with segments that may leave you asking “Does any of this matter?”, here on My Big Fat Pull List!

The Hosts of this Program:

Nicholas J. Hearne - The Host of The My Big Fat Pull List PodcastNicholas J. Hearne:

Blessed with an overactive imagination, Nick spent his early years absorbing as much pop culture as possible. From comic books to television, films, sci-fi, fantasy, horror – if it was great storytelling, he assimilated it! His fascination with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Marvel Comics X-Men drove him to become an avid reader of all literature and a devoted comic collector at the age of eleven! Even though Nick enjoyed most comic book related material, his deep passion for all things “mutant” led to his alter ego being formed, the Uncanny Mister X! In recent years, Nick has co-founded his own comic book company, Archlight Comics, a film company, Archlight Studios, and has become a skilled podcaster and podcast editor. Mister X has taken all of Nick’s talents and found an outlet for his mad ramblings… the My Big Fat Pull List podcast!

Jacob Petri:

Just a common man, working hard with his hands, Jacob Petri has always had an eclectic taste in the world of pop culture. As a child, Jacob read comics, watched Saturday morning cartoons, enjoyed televised sports entertainment, played video games and collected trading cards and action figures. As an adult, he took his love of over the top theatrics and parlayed that into a mediocre Pro-Wrestling career, as he believed Pro-Wrestling was the closest he could get to live action comic books.
As Pistol Danger, he’s used his knowledge and skill both in the ring and on the internet, navigating video games during Let’s Plays and dishing out advice about the wrestling business. Needing to conquer new forms of entertainment, Pistol Danger has turned to podcasting, hoping to educate people on the finer points of geek culture, from comic books to films and everything in between.

Sean Murphy - The Host of The My Big Fat Pull List PodcastSean Murphy

Born with the ambition to one day be a professional football player and then join the military, Sean Murphy was always drawn towards hero based cartoons such as G.I. Joe and the X-Men. Sadly, those dreams were crushed after a terrible accident while playing street football. Sean learned that he was born with missing bones in his feet and his doctors informed him that he wouldn’t be able to play pro football let alone join the military. Missing out on being the hero he wanted to be, Sean turned towards the heroes he knew and loved… comic book superheroes!
As his teenage years turned to adulthood, Sean found a deep love for pop culture. Taking part in role-playing games, cosplaying as his favorite characters at conventions, Sean even worked at a comic book shop for over a decade. His need to absorb geek culture and fun facts earned him the nickname Smurphy. A fun-loving and sometimes socially clueless podcaster, Smurphy is eager to pass on all he knows and then some.

Watchmen (The Graphic Novel) VERSUS Watchmen (The 2009 Movie)



Graphic novels and graphic novel movies have been a staple of American culture since the golden age of comics. They have steadily become the most interesting and hotly debated of cinematic exploits. To talk about a time when movies made us feel like we knew superheroes is to talk about a time when cinema ruled the world. But in terms of graphic novels, none are more highly revered than that of Alan Moore. Of all Moore’s work, his foray into the nuclear-driven world of “Watchmen” has so many topics for discussion, let alone comparison. Once called “unfilmable” by the author himself, this novel deals with so many topics that it is rough to even summarize. But though “unfilmable,” “300” director Zack Snyder has dared to conquer such a thing in his 2009 adaptation. We at the Versus Machine Podcast feel Snyder got some of the essence of purpose and characters, but he missed the biggest points. Unfortunately, this leaves us wanting in a way that may be hard to conquer for any fan.
