Comic Book Outsiders Episode 36

January 30, 2009

Bringing you some of the very best hidden gems from the world of independent comics, movies and TV.

We introduce a future new segment ‘The CBO Bookclub’.  In episode 40 we’re going to be talking about ‘The Winter King’ by Bernard Cornwell, so we’d encourage everyone to go out and read the book (if you haven’t already) and then come and take part in the discussion by getting in touch with us.

After some news detailing the latest happenings in the genre world we commence with the Rourkefest!

In part one we discuss the life and works of Mickey Rourke from boxer to hearthrob to boxer to Oscar nominee.  We recap some of the highlights of his career and discuss what might have been when we discover some of the famous roles he’s turned down.

In part two we get on with an in depth (but mostly spoiler free) review of ‘The Wrestler’.  Directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Mickey Rourke, this truly is a masterpiece of film-making.
