Comic Issues #247 – The Return of the Quarantine!

Anthony got rid of the plague! And promptly gave it to Ashley. (So generous of him, right?) The quarantine is still up at the House of Two Geeks, so Elizabeth skypes in from Starbase Wallace and we’ll hope the bug dies before it can ruin anyone else’s weekend.

To pass they time, they recap New Avengers #2, Angela: Queen of Hel #1, Chewbacca #2 and House of M #4, with the amazing art of Ario Anindito.

Comic Issues #244 – Beat the Clock: Ten Titles Under the Wire

We’re going for a record this episode: it’s the first week of the All-New All-Different Marvel titles and it’s also the final issue of several Battleworld series. What does that mean? It means we had ten books we wanted to talk about this week, twice our usual number, and we can’t do a two-hour episode. (Well we could, but we won’t do that to you. You’re welcome.)

Rather than just drop a book or two off the list (never!) we laced up our running shoes and got out the stopwatch: ten books, five minutes a book, no more. Trying to get through *deep breath* Doctor Strange #1, Old Man Logan #5, Secret Wars #6, Invincible Iron Man #1, 1602: Witch Hunter Angela #4, Groot #5, Avengers #0, Marvel Point One, Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps #4, and Amazing Spider-Man #1. (whew!)

Did we do it? Listen in for a mad dash, pedal to the metal, breakneck speed race of geek!

Comic Issues #238 – Batgirling and Zombies

It’s Science Week on Comic Issues! (Not really, we’re hardly scientists, we just thought it sounded cool.) Tune in for DC’s economic woes, superhero syphoning, brain sporks, go-bags, and touchless toilet technology.

We’re breaking down the news (such as it is) of DC’s two million dollar shortfall, Marvel’s cosplay covers, Superman’s timeline, Battleworld’s zombies, She-Hulk’s awesomeness, and Captain Marvel’s method for transporting mere humans across the ocean.

Comic Issues #235 – Four Outta Battleworld

The biggest news this week is the underwhelming opening of Fantastic 4, but as the crew hasn’t seen it yet they just giggle for a bit about the Thing’s lack of pants, and kryptonite condoms, and then get to the stuff they actually liked; Siege #2, Age of Apocalypse #2, Giant Size Little Marvel AvX #3, and Groot #3.

Comic Issues #225 – All the first issues!

With Anthony out of town this week, Elizabeth convinced Leland from Movie Issues to come aboard and drop some comic knowledge (he didn’t take much convincing.) It’s a potpourri of first-issues this week as they discuss Secret Wars Journal #1, Old Man Logan #1, Inferno #1, Fight Club 2 #1, and Mythic #1. They also talk a little Convergence (but not very enthusiastically) and Leland gives us some insider info he picked up regarding DC’s plans for the future.
