Comic Issues #157 – Why we watched the Super Bowl

Millions of people gathered to watch the Super Bowl so they could see the football game of the year. (Sorry about that Broncos, better luck next time?) But geeks around the world waited through all that football stuff so we could get to the Captain America Trailer, and see Tom Hiddleston in a Jaguar commercial.

Join the podcast crew as we debrief on the Winter Soldier, Spider-Man, and Transformers trailers. We also fit in gaming conventions, BSG: Blood and Chrome, and the wretched excess that was Man of Steel (since Elizabeth only just now got around to watching it.)

Comic Issues #156 – Not Suitable for Children?

This week your podcast heroes and heroine catch up with their recent adventures to Night Vale, the discovery of Hulu, and Andrew explains how he’s broken hearted over Broken Age.  Once the pod-train leaves the station the crew talk about the recent controversy behind IDW’s much discussed Powerpuff Girls cover, by artist Mimi Yoon.  Are the children super heroines too sexy for their cover or is this another case of censorship over artistic vision?

Comic Issues #154 – Don’t Hate, Just Wait

This week the crew gathers together to celebrate the return of the one true wall crawler, Peter Parker!  Now with Pete’s return Anthony breathes a sigh of relief and has put down his hatred for Superior Spider-man so that he can pick up the book and read what all the fuss it about.  Thus spurns the conversation about how the geek world exploded over paradigm changes only to be pleased with the results later.

Up front though Anthony, Elizabeth, and Andrew get into a hot button descussion about internet privacy and how Google is going to kill you with your thermostat… ask Drew.

Comic Issues #152 – Star Wars NOW!

The day we knew was coming is finally here, after the acquisition of Star Wars by Disney it was only a matter of time until every aspect of the company would be controlled by the mouse; including the comic rights.  Announced just this past Friday, beginning in 2015 Marvel Comics will be the sole publisher of Star Wars comics thus ending a 23 year relationship with indie darling, Dark Horse Comics.

The news stirs up mixed feelings with Anthony and Elizabeth as they’re joined by J. Bear in Andrew’s absence due to the plague.  Although Disney has the right to do with what they please with their toys the crew can’t help but feel jaded about Dark Horse’s loss.  Let us know what you think about the move in the comment section below or on our Facebook or Twitter pages!
