PREVIEW: Spider-Gwen #1

Because you demanded it, the character that took the world by storm is back and she’s better than ever for a brand-new ongoing series this October! Marvel is pleased to present your first look at SPIDER-GWEN #1 – coming to you from the red-hot creative team of Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi! Now is your chance to jump in with a clean entry point into Marvel’s breakout sensation of the year! The answers you’ve been waiting for are here: the secret history of Gwen Stacy & Peter Parker revealed! Someone out there has recreated Peter’s Lizard formula. The same formula that mutated him, branded Gwen a fugitive and ultimately cost Peter his life. Gwen WILL NOT let that happen to anyone else – no matter the cost. But with NYPD Captain Frank Castle and the Kingpin of Crime Matt Murdock still on her trail, that won’t be so easy. Plus, the introduction of Norman Osborn and Harry Osborn. What could possibly go wrong? The next epic chapter of Gwen Stacy’s life is about to begin. And you won’t want to miss the bombastic debut as she swings into comic shops once more in SPIDER-GWEN #1!

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!

Disney Infinity 3.0 Expansion Packs and Beyond

It’s been a few months since the Disney Interactive release of Disney Infinity 3.0, and the new game system is being called one of the best family entertainment games ever. And frankly, it is. Having spent hours and hours playing the new Star Wars games or just building worlds to add to the online community, Disney Interactive really has stepped up their game and brought home something amazing and very unique. So with that, I felt it was time to check in with all the new Toy Box Expansion Packs and some of the new figures coming soon for the holiday season!

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.
