MAJOR SPOILERS Trade Paperback Review
When four friends decide to rent a schooner for the day, everything is smooth sailing until they encounter a derelict ship adrift in the ocean – a massive trawler that looks as if it had been dragged from the bottom of the sea. When they spot a frightened little girl waving at them from the bow, they have no choice but to investigate. As they get closer to the ship, they discover that the girl is not alone, and that a terrifying creature born from environmental abuse is also stalking the ship.

    Actually, I don’t think the Judas Contract movie has come out yet. Last I heard, the powers that be were thinking of forgetting it because they felt there wasn’t enough interest.

    I LOVE the podcast, and I normally Matthew’s analogies are spot on…. but that one about blind Guitar Hero playing was completely bonkers! I kept waiting for Stephen or Rodrigo to pounce, but they graciously let it slide.

    Also… this had one of the BEST Pole of the Week intros!

    What do you mean? That’s one of my best analogies ever… :)

    Coincidentally… Your worst analogy is also your best.

    It’s kinda like a guy with no legs tying his shoes… y’know?

    great episode. luv the Hybrid review. BTW, the Cup o’ Joe didn’t say Frank Miller was the writer, as you can see from the link that Stephen provided. there goes Memento again!

      yeah, that’s my bad for not remembering what the release said. I just remembered the part where Joe was talking about Mark Millar.
