Elliott Kalan has made a career for himself out of checking items off the bucket list he made for himself when he was 14, which is a damn fine way to go through life, if you ask us.You may know him as the head writer of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return, which Robb mortgaged his house to Kickstart, or his 12-year run as writer and head writer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.He's written a bunch of Spider-Man comics, including Spider-Man & the X-Men, which includes what is probably the second-most-memed comics panel of the last decade.He's been co-hosting bad-movie podcast The Flop House since 2007, long before the federal government made co-hosting a bad-movie podcast compulsory for men aged 18-25. And he co-hosted a 13-episode podcast about I, Claudius called (wait for it) I, Podivs with fellow MBTM alumnus John Hodgman.BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, he has written two fantastic kids' picture books: Horse Meets Dog (which was the first book Bryan's son was able to read all by himself) and Sharko and Hippo, out now for your holiday purchasing pleasure.Bottom line: Elliott is great.

If you don't know who John Hodgman is, then good lord, we need to fix that:Start by listening to the Judge John Hodgman podcast on the Maximum Fun network. It's a fake internet court whose primary jurisdictions are pedantry and spouses who have come up with elaborate alternative systems for things that didn't need them (they're almost always guys, and they're almost always wrong).Then check out some of his New York Times bestselling books, like Vacationland or Medallion Status (now available in paperback). They're like instruction manuals for weird dads who are barely coping with middle age.Finally, the animated FXX short-form animated comedy series that he co-created with David Rees, Dicktown, is now streaming on Hulu. Imagine an adult Encyclopedia Brown who failed to thrive and still lives in his hometown, solving mysteries for high schoolers. You can watch it all in an afternoon, and you'll be delighted that you did. FINALLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY PLEASE VOTE AND DONATE YOUR TIME TO ENSURING THAT LIKE-MINDED OTHERS DO THE SAME!If you are a Biden/Harris supporter and/or want to ensure that Democrats win elections up and down the ballot, please help in the way that you're asked to help and sign up for phone banking and text banking.If you are not a Biden/Harris supporter and do not want Democrats to win in November, we respect your opinion, and we hope you'll still participate in the democratic process on Election Day, November 8th.Issues Covered In Detail This Episode:Daredevil #27, written by Stan Lee, art by Gene Colan w/Frankie Giacoia - “Mike Murdock Must Die!”Amazing Spider-Man #48, written by Stan Lee, art by John Romita - “The Wings of the Vulture!”Avengers #39, written by Roy Thomas, art by Don Heck w/George Bell - “The Torment… and the Triumph!”Fantastic Four #62, written by Stan Lee, art by Jack Kirby w/Joe Sinnott - “...

Matt "Sugar Lips" Fraction needs no introduction, but here's one anyway: He’s written more Marvel Comics than most people have read, including Uncanny X-Men, the Immortal Iron Fist, Punisher War Journal, The Mighty Thor, Defenders, and Fantastic Four — as well as the Eisner Award-winning Invincible Iron Man and Hawkeye.He won another Eisner and a Harvey Award for the delightfully filthy Sex Criminals, which he co-created with Chip Zdarsky. He’s currently collaborating with Elsa Charretier on the enigmatic crime noir comic, November. And while we hate to go off-brand, his collaboration with Steve Lieber for the Distinguished Competition on Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen is absolutely a must-read.He's smart enough to be invisible on social media, but here's his website, which hasn't been updated since he wrote the perfect Tumblr post in December 2018: mattfraction.comSpeaking of Elsa Charretier, her Kickstarter for the second volume of her Artbook ends in ONE WEEK!
