This week, we have hit Movie Fighters Bingo with DOOM, a movie that stars a wrestler, in a video game adaptation, directed by the man who brought you Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, with the worst lighting we have ever seen. We tackle the film based on a game that makes me dizzy, and I tell a 100% True Story of how people at my high school reacted to a shirt that I bought at Toys R Us.
It’s 90 minutes of podcasting fun for just one dollar, and it’s the penultimate entry in our WrestleMovieMania series! Go get it!
This week on War Rocket Ajax, we’re pleased as hot pink punch to sit down with the writer of Coll— uh, Federal Bureau of Physics, Simon Oliver! He joins us to talk about the title change, the color scheme, and how he pitched a book with a sci-fi concept so neat that it could run forever. Listen to the show below!
War Rocket Ajax #174: It Could Be Called ‘Turd’ with Simon Oliver
This week on War Rocket Ajax, we use the words “cutie mark” way more than you’d expect, even from a show with me on it. We’ve got Ted Anderson, writer of two issues of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic micro-series, and the official (well, maybe official) “NPR Brony.” We’ll talk about the appeal of the show, Ted’s connections, and the minefield of obsessive fandom in this week’s episode! Cheeeeeeeeck it out!
War Rocket Ajax #173: Quelling the Moral Tremors with Ted Anderson
War Rocket Ajax is back, and this week, we’ve got an incredible, high-energy interview with Spike Trotman, the creator of Templar, AZ, the writer of Poorcraft and the publisher of Smut Peddler! She tells us all about her history in comics and — amazingly — brings up pro wrestling and Achewood without being prompted at all. I think that means we’re besties now.
Plus, Matt and I discuss SummerSlam and unlimited meats, I gush even more about Saints Row IV, and Matt earns a new nickname!
War Rocket Ajax #172: Subtle as a Freight Train with Spike Trotman
This week on War Rocket Ajax, the angular-faced Brian Clevinger returns to the show to talk about his Kickstarter and explain why he doesn’t follow me on Twitter. I can assure you, his reasons are entirely unsatisfactory, but we also get some interesting stories about what it was like to work at a comic book store right when he was breaking out with Atomic Robo.
Plus, we talk about pen-and-paper roleplaying games and dissect the message of Batman Incorporated #13! It’s the nerdiest show we’ve ever done.
War Rocket Ajax #169: I’m Dr. Comics with Brian Clevinger
Of all the movies that we’ve been asked by listeners to take on at Movie Fighters, none have been as requested as 1988’s Miami Connection!Originally released in eight — yes, eight — theaters in central Florida, MC was a lost classic until it was re-released by the Alamo Drafthouse, and folks, it is a delight.
It’s available to watch on Netflix Instant if you want to experience along with us, as we take this week’s Movie Fighters to try to figure out just who (or what) the Miami Connection actually is, why the students of the University of Central Florida never bother to change their clothes, YK Kim’s clear insistence on method acting, and the rest of the (many) questions raised by John, Jim, Jack, Jeff and Jane.
Plus, I didn’t post about it because I was on my way to San Diego when it went up, but our last episode saw us wrestle with Hulk Hogan’s cinematic triumph, No Holds Barred! Fun fact: There are no actual holds in this movie to be barred, but there’s a lot of sweaty Kurt Fuller and Hulk Hogan’s digitally restored hairline to talk about.
Both episodes are available to download right now for a mere $1 each! Check ’em out, and make sure to send us suggestions on what to watch next!
This week on War Rocket Ajax, we’re sitting down with Kat Rocha, Josh Finney and Patrick McEvoy, the creators of the Kickstarter-funded World War Kaiju graphic novel! They chat with us all about why they went with kickstarter funding, the long road to get the book made and, perhaps most importantly, just who is the Ed Hardy of giant monsters.
Plus, I’m back from San Diego with a harrowing tale, Matt lived through a lousy weekend, and we’ve got three comics that we absolutely loved this week to talk about!

You can also stream the show using the player above, or download it in MP3 format from WarRocketAjax.com.
Check out WorldWarKaiju.com for a 17-page preview, then head over to Kickstarter to get the graphic novel (and one of those 11-ounce coffee mugs). It’s going ’til August 12, best known as a certain someone’s birthday.
Follow Kat and Josh on Twitter. They’re good people! Patrick is also good, but not on Twitter.
