Episode 180: The Trial of Jean Grey

By CBI

This week, we continue on with some Guardians of the Galaxy loving’, by discussing a recent cross-over with the All-New X-Men: The Trial of Jean Grey. This was an odd event. Both Vince and I agreed that it felt so forced, a vehicle meant only to pair these two teams together. However even once paired, despite fantastic character moments, the plot itself never gave us much substance. We also ... Read More »

Episode 173: Welcome to the Jungle, Dresden

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle a Dresden Files comic mini-series… and this makes us both very happy. We’re both fans of Harry Dresden, Chicago resident wizard, and this series was a lot of fun. Also this week, some favourites of ours which didn’t exactly live up to expectations. Enjoy. News Rocket Raccoon Discussion The Dresden Files: Welcome to the Jungle What We’re Reading Vince...

Episode 160: Punisher Cross-Overs

By CBI

Over the years, Vince has made me read some truly terrible comics. He’s thrived on it, in fact. When flipping through whatever crap he’s had me read in a given “bad” week, I always imagine him with steepled fingers, cackling lightly… maniacally. I never retaliated though. Until this week. I decided enough was enough. This week, I was going to make him read some truly terrib... Read More »

Episode 159: Thomas “Badass” Wayne

By CBI

This week, Vince decided we should see what’s been happening in comics that aren’t new (or renumbered) number 1s. He chose the first part of the Trial of Jean Grey, spanning a couple issues, the start of the Utrom Empire retelling, as well as the absolutely fantastic Earth 2 annual written by Tom Taylor, one of our favorite writers. We also had a lot to discuss in What We’re Read... Read More »

Episode 135: What If…?

Episode 135: What If…?

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle What If…?, a long-running, multi-volume series from Marvel. Most folks are familiar with the concept, but for those of you who are new to comics, What If…? explores different possibilities, as the name implies. Vince and I each selected ten issues spanning many years. We discussed the Fantastic Five (with both Spider-Man and Silver Surfer joining the team ... Read More »

Episode 125: Phillip Jackson Interview

By CBI

This week, Vince and I were thrilled to be joined by the creator of Sequential Art, Battle Bunnies and a new favorite, Little Victory.

Episode 124: Grab Bag

By CBI

This week, having no clear plan of attack, Vince and I decided to have a grab bag episode, discussing whatever we’re reading. It wound up being a very fun episode with a lot of comics discussed.

Episode 119: Injustice… not as bad as we’d imagined

Episode 119: Injustice… not as bad as we’d imagined

By CBI

When Vince pitched this week’s episode to me, he didn’t even try to sugar-coat it. This was to be an episode where we make fun of something absolutely terrible. Thing is, the series actually has several redeeming qualities. Enough to make us keep reading it, which is saying a lot considering how many comics we read each week. Check it out and leave us a comment telling us what you thin... Read More »

Episode 116: The Death of Damian

By CBI

This week, Vince and I discuss the death of Damian. We give our thoughts on event, if it can in fact be qualified as such. We also discuss a new series which allows you to pay what you want per issue. We were actually very impressed with The Private Eye. You’ll want to hear what we have to say about it. And of course, Uncanny Skullkickers. Finally. As well as the winner of the signed copy. W... Read More »

Episode 114: Can’t agree on anything

Episode 114: Can’t agree on anything

By CBI

This week, Vince and I can’t seem to agree on anything. While he enjoyed Uncanny Avengers, I found it lacking, and while he was disappointed in Age of Ultron, I actually quite liked it. You know what that means; I was right. Don’t forget about the current giveaway. There’s still time to get your emails to me at roger (at) comicbookinformer (dot) come for your chance at a signed c...
