TRIGGER WARNING! Matt and Brett and special guest Jordan D. White are diving into easily the heaviest comic book that’s ever been read on this show. Alan Moore and Jacen Burrows’ polarizing, controversial ode to H.P. Lovecraft is discussed, and things get serious. So, in all seriousness, here’s a legit trigger warning for sexual abuse and violence, because it’s impossible to discuss this heavy work of horror without addressing those topics head-on.
Brett even read up on criticism of Neonomicon and Alan Moore’s general handling of sexual violence in his work. Here’s what he read, just in case you want more information and context.
Also… Ninja Turtle Update! Remember in episode #112 when Brett claimed that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles once appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show? Brett uploaded his old VHS recording to YouTube and you can watch it in its entirety right now!
Jordan D. White is an editor for Marvel Comics, specifically the Deadpool titles. You can follow him on Twitter @cracksh0t and check out his own ode to Lovecraft, Scapie Stories, on his website, wax-work.com!
You can purchase Neonomicon on Amazon or Comixology.
