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?

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?
