After an unannounced, unscheduled hiatus, the Matt Sager Podcast is back! And just in time to comment on 2 great streaming shows that have premiered in recent weeks: the revived Veronica Mars, whose season 4 is airing on Hulu, and Amazon’s adaptation of The Boys.
Both shows are excellent, Veronica Mars surprising even me with how great it continues to be 15 years after the premiere season 1, while The Boys’ only imperfection has to do with timing, and the current over saturation of stories of this kind. Which does not mean it’s not great - it’s amazing, and if you haven’t watched it, you really should!
Then we get into the strange story of Rob Liefeld and his nasty parting of ways with his early Image Comics super-team, Youngblood. The stranger-than-fiction story involves Andrew Rev, apparently once the mad king of the late indie publisher Comico. Both The Beat and Bleeding Cool dedicated a lot of time and effort into getting Rev’s side of the confusing tale, but neither was able to get anything intelligible enough to print. Never a great sign. You can see their earnest efforts here: https://www.comicsbeat.com/rob-liefeld-walking-away-from-youngblood/
Liefeld, for his part, is apparently done with this collection of ‘90s cliches and I don’t think it’s anyone’s loss. Mullets, utility belts and shoulder pads do not a franchise make.
