Episode 275: End

Episode 275: End

By CBI

Comic books matter. They inspire, in young and old, not just a sense of wonder and imagination, but of a world where each of us has it in our body and spirit to make a difference. To help those who need it most. To be better people. They foster communication, debate, criticism, and praise. They create communities. And when one feels lost in a sea of indifference and apathy, they bring a knowing sm... Read More »

Episode 274: The

By CBI

When Vince first told me his plan for this week’s episode, I wondered how such a conversation would fare. “What we wish we’d covered.” Well, there are a number of things that come to mind, however it wasn’t like we were going to go in depth for each special issue, story-arc, or series. What I hadn’t banked on were the tangents… the deviations from the conv... Read More »

Episode 273: Of

By CBI

This week, as well as for our remaining episodes, we’ve decided to hell with our routine. Vince has laid out some loose discussion points for us, so that we can simply sit back and shoot the breeze about our experiences with comics. On this episode, we discuss our own origin stories, as well as our rebirths. When did we start reading comics, and because we both took a break, what drew us bac... Read More »

Episode 272: The Beginning

By CBI

My work day ends at 5PM. Every Tuesday, sickness and such notwithstanding, I call Vince via Skype as soon as I’ve got my recording application all setup. We shoot the breeze for a few moments, catch up on some news, and do a sound check to normalize our volumes. “All right. Ready?” I’ll ask. “Ready when you are.” I’ll press a button, and our theme will sta... Read More »

Episode 271: The Vision

By CBI

This week, in light of the recent Warriors announcement which will star Viv, Vince decided we should check out the new Vision series. Both of us had dismissed it when it had first released, however reading through the first six issues proved that was a grave mistake. Also discussed this week, some Spider-Man… some bad… some meh. Discussion The Vision What We’re Reading Vince: Ama... Read More »

Episode 270: Spectrum Wars

By CBI

This week, in light of Anton Yelchin’s recent passing, I decided it would be nice to put our differences with DC on hold, to cover a fantastic Star Trek/Green Lantern cross-over. Differences may not be the right term, as it implies DC’s got a beef with us as well; and let’s be honest, they’ve no friggin’ idea who we are. But I digress. The Spectrum Wars was a great mi...

Episode 269: Back to the Future

By CBI

This week, Vince and I cover another franchise brought to comics: Back to the Future. We’re both huge fans of the movies, as well as the Telltale Games title. You would think we’d be instantly enamoured with these comics, however in each case, something simply felt off, or lacking. In our What We’re Reading segment we covered a lot of good stuff, including Thor, Ms Marvel, GWENPO... Read More »

Episode 268: The Oath

By CBI

This week, Vince took another of my suggestions and we tackled what wound up being a spectacular Doctor Strange mini-series: The Oath. The series proves that in the right hands, Doctor Strange can entertain. Also covered this week, Invincible, Han Solo, 4 Seconds, Spectrum and more. Fun episode. Enjoy. Discussion Doctor Strange: The Oath What We’re Reading Vince: Invincible, Nova, Vote Loki ... Read More »

Episode 267: Black Panther

Episode 267: Black Panther

By CBI

I’ve been bugging Vince for weeks to find a good Black Panther story to cover on the podcast. Sadly, what he suggested was the first story-arc of the 1999 Black Panther series, which, as you’ll discover, was full of problems, not the least of which being, Black Panther wasn’t even the central character. We also covered some God of War, TMNT, Grizzlyshark, Sherlock, and more. Enjo... Read More »

Episode 266: Angel of Death

Episode 266: Angel of Death

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle some early X-Factor issues; those revolving around Apocalypse’s introduction, as well as Angel’s traumatic transformation to his Fourth Horseman. X-Men: Apocalypse did a terrible job with this profound event, and if you get a chance, we suggest you check out Louise Simonson’s story-arc in those X-Factor issues. We also discuss Civil War II, Transform... Read More »
