MULTIMEDIOCRITY #4 – “What’s So Civil About War Anyway?”


MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast! – What’s So Civil About War Anyway?

“Longing.  Rusted.  Seventeen.  Dawn.  Stove.  Nine.
 Kind-hearted.  Homecoming.  One.  Freight car.”

On this installment of MULTIMEDIOCRITY, host Shawn Talley, back from a sticky sojourn in the Bayou, shares his thoughts on some comic book movies, comic book TV shows, and comic book continuity… or their lack thereof. Listen to him gush over recent Marvel fare like ‘Daredevil’ season 2 and CAPTAIN AMERICA: Civil War, refuse to acknowledge that controversial Hydra reveal in the latest Cap comic (you could say he did Nazi that one coming), and lament on the endless retcons that muddle an already-convoluted comic book landscape. Check it out!
