Top Picks in Comics for 5/4/11

Welcome back my dear comic book lovers!  I’m back again to bring you my review in last week’s new comic releases.  My stack was a little light this week so I took the opportunity to try out some new books that had caught my eye. iZombie and Sweet Tooth started new story arcs last week so in my eternal search for the perfect pull list I gave these books a shot.  It’s all about trying new things, my friends.

And speaking of new be sure to check out the newest episode of Comic Issues. The whole gang had a meet up where some local fans came by to watch Thor together and then they got to be the very first Comic Issues Live Audience!  It was a lot of fun and new friends were made. Keep your eye out for our next meet up for Green Lantern when it comes out.

Now let’s talk some comic books! And watch out for spoilers.

Comic Issues Presents: Thor – Review

Comic Issues Presents: Thor – Review

Recently, I had the pleasure of seeing an advanced screening of the Marvel Comics latest hero-turned Hollywood movie, Thor. In following the successful Iron Man franchise, and the soon to be released Captain America and Avengers movie, Marvel seems to be getting their continuity together for a very good set of films, which is a nice change of pace being that Marvel hasn’t been able to do the same for their latest books to save their lives. Perhaps Marvel needs to brake down and have a “Crisis.” That however, is not what this is about–this is about The Mighty Thor. Thankfully, here Marvel has another strong film on their hands. “Thor” is everything you’ve come to expect from a Marvel movie; it’s fun, action-packed, epic and widely accessible to comic fans and non-comic fans alike. As with all Marvel films to date, you should stay to the very end. Yes, suffer though the horrible Foo Fighters song–trust me, it’s worth it!

The Thor Meet Up!

Greetings True Believers!  The upcoming Thor movie is nearly upon us and we want to celebrate the Thunder God’s arrival with all of our Comic Issues listeners.  This upcoming Saturday (May 7th) Comic Issues will be having a Thor Meet Up and we’re encouraging every listener who can make it. To attend and watch what may very well be the greatest comic book movie of the year with your favorite podcastin’-pals.

After the movie we’ll be recording viewer’s reactions of the movie that we’ll be posting on the website, and if that’s not enough incentive, the Ci Crew will be going right to their not-so-secret hideout of Keith’s Restaurant to record 2 podcasts where YOU are invited to be our first live audience!

We love our listeners, and we wouldn’t love this podcast as much as we do without all of your support. Hope to see you there.

Top Picks in Comics for 4/6/11

Hello again my friends! I am your humble and awesome host, Anthony Silva of Comic Issues fame, back again with my week of reviews for 4/6/11.  It was a light week for me, so I took the opportunity to try out a couple books that aren’t usually on my list. They say variety is the spice of life, and if that’s true then you gotta shake things up once in a while to keep it fresh. This week I got three new books that I’ve known of, but haven’t taken the leap to try out until now.

Also a little special news for you, the Comic Issues cast will be attending Kingdom Con! It’s an great little gaming convention in sunny San Diego, Ca with all the heart of our last convention Anime Conji and half of the Black Butler cos-players! If you’re in the area or you’re looking for a reason to make a road trip, come by and spot us spinning dice and kickin’ some orc ass!

X-Men: First Class Official Trailer

X-Men: First Class Official Trailer

Ever since the release of X-Men: The Last Stand, my opinion about the recent X-Men films has been quite negative. X-Men Origins: Wolverine didn’t help much either, so I’m understandably skeptical about X-Men: First Class. Yet, after watching the trailer, I can’t help but wonder if this will be the X-Men film that saves the franchise.
