Comic Issues #249 – Catching up on Comics

This week Leland is back to sit with Anthony to kick back and reflect on the year in comics.  Beginning with Secret Wars and dancing through the singing hills of Marvel these two geeks gush over their favorite books and what’s still to come.  It’s all good vibes until the DC talk started and things got real sad and bitter as they have yet to create a world that’s inviting for new fans… or some old fans.  Listen in as two friends of 16 years kick back and talk comic shop before getting to major news at the end of the podcast.

Comic Issues #242 – Weird comic books and geek TV (perfect weekend)

The plan for this week was to talk about the Harvey Awards, Crane Con 2015, and the books we read this week. And we mostly did that! But we also kept getting derailed by all the geek TV we’re trying to watch, like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Doctor Who, Arrow, Flash, The Dollhouse, The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and Gotham.

But we eventually get back to Mythic #4, Fury #1, Years of Future Past #5, Grayson #12, and the excellently disturbing Gotham by Midnight #9, with art by the amazing Juan Ferreyra.

Review – Gotham Season 1

While Comic Book movies have been all the rage, it’s good to see them finally making the transition to television. Marvel has Agents of Shield, DC is absolutely killing it with Arrow and the Flash.

So how does Gotham stack up against other DC TV shows?

Comics Issues #241 – Cover Spoilers

It’s Wednesday and time again for another geektastic edition episode of COMIC ISSUES! On this week’s newstand, it didn’t take long but after DC announced their “No Batgirling” approach to story telling, four and a half of their more peripheral books have been cancelled. Say goodbye to a favorite of ours Gotham by Midnight, along with Doom, Lobo, Justice League United, and Omega Men. Although Omega Men was only cancelled for a day or so before the raging tide of the Internet brought the book back from near death.

As for what’s in this week’s pull list, Anthony and Elizabeth recap and review Captain America: White #1, House of M #3, A-Force #4, Age of Apocalypse #4, Star Wars #9, All-New Hawkeye #5, Bizarro #4, and Darth Vader #9.
