Comic Issues #193 – Comic Fest Live 2014

Last weekend we had an AWESOME time at San Diego Comic Fest 2014 because not only did we get to geek out on several panels about Sci-fi, Reboots, and more, but we also ran into our old friend Chris Gore! In need of a podcast we joined forces, Voltron Style, for another episode of PodCrash: Comic Issues!

High atop the Town & Country Hotel Anthony, Elizabeth, Chris, and extra special guest Andre Meadows of Black Nerd Comedy gathered together to form the podcast that fans both wanted AND needed. Sinking their collective claws deep into DC’s recent boast of a movie release schedule, these geeks get into everything from Batfleck, to Justice League, and into the current DC TV line up. Not to be passed over though everyone also talks about Marvel’s triumphs and what they’re looking for in the next Star Wars movie.

This week your podcast heroes go head to head to over the newest comic book shows to come to our moving picture boxes.  While Anthony supports Team Flash, Elizabeth stands atop the tallest building with the moonlight casting her long shadow across Team Gotham.  After two podcasting champions duke it out in an all out network television battle royale they come back together over the adorable fluffiness of Captain Marvel #8 and the all too much at once Avengers/X-Men Axis #1.

Wanna see the Comic Issues Crew LIVE!  We’ll be at San Diego Comic Fest this weekend October 17-18 participating in several panels and getting into hilarious hi-jinks!  Along with us be sure you say hi to Neal Adams, Laura Siegel Larson, Andrew Robinson, and our BFF Chris Gore!

Comic Issues #191 – Out with the old, in with the new

Marvel’s shaking everything up this month, with a brand new Captain America, a brand new Lady Thor, and a brand new…wait, no, we’re not getting a new Wolverine, we’re just losing the old one. But you never know..

The crew is showing the love for Thor #1, All-New Captain America #1, and Death of Wolverine #3. They’re not showing quite so much love for Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier #1 or Black Widow #11, but they discuss those too. Be warned, they’re spoiling EVERYTHING.

Along the way they also talk Oktoberfest, SCA, San Diego Comic Fest, and whether or not dentists should have lightsabers.

Comic Issues #190 — Saga of the Magneto

Do you have a fictional hero that comes from your town?  Would you want a statue of him/her in a public place?  Of course you would, that would be awesome!  This week Anthony and Elizabeth talk about Edmonton’s petition to erect a statue of the Canadian hero, Milo Manara’s future Marvel Comic variants all being canceled in the wake of the “Ass Cleavage Scandal”, as I’m calling it, and of course some of our favorite comics of the last week.

If you haven’t read Saga #23, Magneto #10, or Guardians of the Galaxy #19 then spoilers be warned!  Fans of My Little Pony or Alien should stick to the end… or if you’re a fan of both.. it could happen.

Comic Issues #189 — Transforming God of X-Men

As another dawn opens on the weekly celebration that is Comic Book Day the podcast that you both want and deserve!  This week Anthony and Elizabeth hit the rack to bring to you some of the best comics from last week just in time to pick them up with this week’s books.

Among our favorite books was the comic that everyone probably assumed we were already loving, Transformers #33, which made us feel like kids buried in die-cast awesomeness.  Also following up last week’s Bachalo love-fest is the Bachalo-less love for Uncanny X-Men #26′s scary-powerful new mutant and a deep look at Cyclop’s current psyche.  Wrapping up the podcast we send Thor off in God of Thunder #25 and an anthology leading to teasers for next month’s Thor #1 starring Lady Thor, don’t worry we figured out how to say it without being derogatory.

Comic Issues Podcast #188 – Our favorite comics! (..this week..)

Comic Issues Podcast #188 – Our favorite comics! (..this week..)

This week the crew is doing one big round-up of our favorite comics. (Our current favorites anyway. It changes a lot.)

First: since Marvel’s cornered the market on the best comic-book movies, is DC trying to take over TV? Can they do it?

Then we’re looking at some of the latest Marvel books to hit the stands. Magneto #9 continues his one-man, self-disgust-fueled vengeance run against, well, everybody apparently. Over on Uncanny X-men we’re taking bets on who’s going to inherit the school, once hologram-Xavier quits screwing around and actually tells us. Then we take a look at Death of Wolverine issues 1 and 2. What’s likely to kill Wolverine first: one of the thousands of people out for his blood? Or an infection from stabbing somebody who didn’t take a lot of baths?
