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?

Comic Issues Podcast #187 — The Scandalous Spider-Woman

There’s been a lot of talk about the upcoming variant cover to Spider-woman #1 and if erotic artist Milo Manara has gone too far with his sexy portrayal of the femme fatal.  This week your podcasting heroes Anthony and Elizabeth take a look at the scandal to ask themselves if Manara and the comic industry are putting women into a bad position, or if they’re just drawn that way.

Let us know what you think in the comment section below, does Manara’s cover go to far or are people making a big deal over nothing?
