Comic creator and podcaster Ryan Little returns to the show to first help us look at medieval times and characters from throughout pop culture. We look at films like A Knight’s Tale and Robin Hood, games like Assassin’s Creed and Fable, share our experiences at Medieval Times restaurants, and look at the world of LARPing and what to watch out for. Don’t miss this Retro Roundtable!
Then we turn our attention to Ryan to discuss his Kickstarter for issue #4 of his comic Prometheus. You've heard the legend of Prometheus: the titan who stole the flame of knowledge from the gods and gave it to mortal man, allowing us to grow and thrive. He was locked away for his trespass, confined to an eternal punishment at the hands of "The Eagle", a creature of Olympus that would make sure humanity's martyr would suffer for all time.
Prometheus has mysteriously liberated from his captivity and dying to see what mankind has made the knowledge he's suffered so long for. And what did he find? That's right, our modern world of nonstop pop culture, rampant anti-intellectualism, and a burgeoning classism. One thing became abundantly clear through the noise of humanity's struggles: someone has stolen the flame of knowledge. And now he's going to get it back.
Head over to Kickstarter to get your copy before October 10th!
