Episode 255: Daredevil – Season 2

Episode 255: Daredevil – Season 2

By CBI

The much anticipated second season of Daredevil was released on Friday, and as per the Netflix Terms of Service, we binge watched it all over the course of the weekend. And because our For the Lore co-host, Joe, has such a unique relationship with one of the central characters, we thought it’d be fun to bring him along for the ride. We also discussed Rat Queens, Spider-Man and … Power ... Read More »

Episode 254: The Dark Knight Returns

Episode 254: The Dark Knight Returns

By CBI

This week, after a mere 253 episodes, we finally remembered, I mean decided to talk about one of the most iconic Batman stories: The Dark Knight Return. I recall when this originally was published, and the impression it left on a generation of comic book readers. Decades later, I feel it still holds up, and should be required reading for any true Batman fan. We kept going with the Batman theme thr... Read More »

Episode 253: Should we care that Spidey’s black?

By CBI

This week, Vince decided we should talk about a couple new issues which caused some stir on the internets. Black Widow’s reboot was something that I had been dreading, simply because I’d been so enamoured with the last series. Sadly, while this first issue was impressive in some regards, I simply found it didn’t have enough story to warrant the cover price… great art or not... Read More »

Episode 252: The Black Mirror

Episode 252: The Black Mirror

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackled Snyder’s work on Detective Comics which saw Dick taking over the cowl for a while. The story arc was quite good, and gripping to the very end. As promised, Vince also gave his thoughts on the Deadpool movie, and I tackled Arrow, the TV show, as it pertains to a recent story arc which saw Felicity in a wheel chair. We also covered Chew, Justice League, Kanan and... Read More »

Episode 251: Rebirthing Reboots

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle DC’s “Rebirth”, coming soon to rebooted comic books near you. We also cover Old Man Logan, which continues being one of, if not the best thing to come out of Secret Wars, as well as Power Man and Iron Fist, Spiderman, Deadpool, Sex Criminals, Star Wars, I Hate Fairyland and lots more. The episode ran a little long this week, but we’re not apolo... Read More »

Episode 250: MATH IS HARD

Episode 250: MATH IS HARD

By CBI

250 episodes! And they said we wouldn’t last! Actually, they said we’d likely tear each other’s throats out before 100. Well, we didn’t! For this quarter -something- episode, I decided we should relax over a couple glasses of wine a little later into the evening, joined by our newest punching bag- I mean, friend and colleague, Marty from All Comics Considered. Enjoy this do... Read More »

Episode 249: Trekker

Episode 249: Trekker

By CBI

This week, Vince suggested a free, online comic: Trekker. If you’re looking for a “Blade Runner” type of comic (though not as dark) about a sexy bounty hunter, Trekker may be for you. Otherwise, check out Skullkickers. We also covered some We Are Robin, Batman, I Hate Fairyland and lots more. Enjoy. Discussion Trekker (trekkercomic.com) What We’re Reading Vince: We Are Robi...

Episode 248: Last Stand of the Wreckers

Episode 248: Last Stand of the Wreckers

By CBI

This week, Vince tried to make me read Transformers comics… so I read Star Wars and Batman instead. In my defence, I tried to read this week’s discussion comics, but I found it very difficult to do so – as mentioned at the start of the episode. If you’ve read these, let us know what you thought. Discussion Last Stand of the Wreckers What We’re Reading Vince: Captain M... Read More »

Episode 247: Switcharoos, part of a balanced breakfast

Episode 247: Switcharoos, part of a balanced breakfast

By CBI

This week, we split our main discussion between Marvel and DC, and in a surprising twist, we far preferred the DC comics. I guess it helps that they were both written by Tom Taylor. We also spent quite a bit of time on the Secret Wars wrap-up… and suffice it to say, we could have dedicated an entire, extra-long episode to that final issue alone. Plus, lots more. Enjoy. Discussion Uncanny X-M... Read More »

Episode 246: With HANNAH!

Episode 246: With HANNAH!

By CBI

This week, with Vince needing a day off, I reached out to our friends at All Comics Considered again, this time asking if Hannah would like to join me. She graciously agreed, despite giving her very little notice and we proceeded to have a great time shooting the breeze about a variety of titles. She also put me in my place as it pertains to a certain something-something that I wasn’t as cra... Read More »
