Comic Issues #246 – Quarantined

This week’s podcast is coming to you from deep within the quarantine zone as Anthony has come down with the plague. So in the best interests of Elizabeth, who’s happy with her wellness and not interested in Anthony’s germ warfare, Comic Issues is brought you via the Skype machine! This week is still packed with our favorite books of the week, as we close the final pages of Secret Wars titles Siege and Age of Apocalypse, try out the All-New, All-Different  Astonishing Ant-Man, come back for Round 2 of Invincible Iron Man, and even touch on Back to the Future #1 and the collected Multiversity series by Grant Morrison.

Review: Ant-Man

Review: Ant-Man

The Marvel movie power-train just keeps on chugging along, as we reach the end of phase two with their twelfth film: Ant-Man. Directed by Peyton Reed and starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll and Michael Douglas. We follow the story of down-on-his-luck, ex-con Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), who steals Hank Pym’s Ant-Man suit. Learning how to use the suit, Lang becomes a man who can shrink to the size of an insect, learns to control ants, and tries to redeem himself as a new kind of superhero to save the day. It’s fun, amusing and full of action. Hell, it’s just one more wonderful Marvel movie to add to their already amazing collection of films.Marvel's Ant-Man..Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd)..Photo Credit: Zade Rosenthal..? Marvel 2014

Comic Issues #205 – Ant-Memetic

Mark the calendars, DC Comics has impressed your favorite geeky podcaster this week with the news of both the Vixen digitally animated show coming to The CW and Tanya Spears, the new African-American Power Girl.  Kudos to the much criticized publication, but will it pan out for the fans, time will have to tell with that one.

Not to be missed though, Marvel takes the cake with the release of both the ant-sized Ant-Man teaser, only to be later followed by the human-sized Ant-Man trailer (SO MANY HYPHENS!).   Listen in as the podcasting  duo debate the merits and faults of our first look at Marvel’s next solo superhero film.

Also this week Ant-Man #1, Memetic #3, Legendary StarLord #7, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1, and Transformers: Timelines #10 all get reviewed for both quality and awesomeness.
