Comic Issues #189 — Transforming God of X-Men

As another dawn opens on the weekly celebration that is Comic Book Day the podcast that you both want and deserve!  This week Anthony and Elizabeth hit the rack to bring to you some of the best comics from last week just in time to pick them up with this week’s books.

Among our favorite books was the comic that everyone probably assumed we were already loving, Transformers #33, which made us feel like kids buried in die-cast awesomeness.  Also following up last week’s Bachalo love-fest is the Bachalo-less love for Uncanny X-Men #26’s scary-powerful new mutant and a deep look at Cyclop’s current psyche.  Wrapping up the podcast we send Thor off in God of Thunder #25 and an anthology leading to teasers for next month’s Thor #1 starring Lady Thor, don’t worry we figured out how to say it without being derogatory.

Review: Avengers – Endless Wartime

Review: Avengers – Endless Wartime

When it comes to comics, especially Marvel comics, I’ve usually focused on the Transformers line, with occasional forays into X-Men in the 90’s. Most of my knowledge about anything related to the Avengers comes from the recent movies (*waves madly* Hi, Mr. Hiddleston! You’re awesome!), and when I wanted to try to jump into Avengers comics, something by Warren Ellis seemed like the best place to start. I’ve read Ellis’s Transmetropolitan several times through, I’ve heard lots of rave reviews of Iron Man: Extremis, the man is a god of comic book writing, so I thought the recent Avengers:Endless Wartime would be a great introduction.

The final verdict? It was okay.

Marvel is proud to present your first look at THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #19.NOW – the start of an all-new story arc from the New York Times Bestselling creators Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic!

The Asgardian Thunder God has fought countless battles in defense of his adopted home of Earth. But there are no God Butchers or Dark Elves to fight this time. The planet itself is dying – a victim of abuse and depletion at the hands of Roxxon Energy Corporation – the world’s largest (and most nefarious) energy provider. How can he save the world he loves when there is no fight to be had? Now, Thor must team up with S.H.I.E.L.D. environmental agent Roz Solomon and square off against a multinational super-corporation and its ruthless CEO, Broxton Agger, a man the business world calls “The Minotaur”!

Movie Issues: Top Movies of 2013

Movie Issues: Top Movies of 2013

Earlier this year it could have been said that the movies of 2013 weren’t great, but after going back and relooking over the films that did come out, it turns out 2013 wasn’t full of terrible films. There were a couple here and there, but overall not terrible movies, just a year full of disappointments more so. A lot of the huge blockbusters failed to deliver on what the filmmakers promised or what the trailers looked like they’d give us. For example: Man of Steel. Not a terrible movie for some, but just ok overall. It had all the right pieces to the puzzle, but for some reason some of those pieces didn’t fit. It’s nothing compared to the bomb that The Lone Ranger was, but just a year full of ups and downs really.
