Episode 169: Ultimate Reboot

Episode 169: Ultimate Reboot

By CBI

This week, Vince and I discuss the rebooted Ultimates universe. Specifically, we tackle All-New Ultimates, Ultimate FF and Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man. As we’ve stated many, many times, Marvel really needs to work on their naming conventions, because this continues to border on utter stupidity. That said, we did enjoy several of these new series. We also discussed a lot of comics in W... Read More »

Episode 168: Kienan Lafferty Interview

By CBI

This week, Vince and I are joined by a Kienan Lafferty for a fantastic interview. Kienan is the independent creator behind the online comic Emma. You will be hard pressed to find a creator as enthusiastic about their work as Lafferty. He left his dream job at Riot Games in order to pursue this goal of creating comic books, and the passion shows in the calibre of his work. Both Vince and I respect ... Read More »

Episode 167: Free Comic Book Day

By CBI

Last Saturday was Free Comic Book Day. Many were able to pop into their local retail comic book shops and pick up some fantastic issues. I’m hoping, as always, that this event has hooked many new readers, both young and old. Comics have so much to offer to readers, be they kids or old farts like me. For those of us who couldn’t make it out, we got some free digital treats this year. Ov... Read More »

Episode 153: Deadpool vs Invincible

By CBI

This week, Vince and I discuss Invincible. I don’t know what Vince had planned, but apparently he felt like discussing Deadpool. The fool. This is our last episode of 2013, and I must say, it was a ton of fun. Hope you all enjoy it, have a fantastic new year’s eve, and we’ll see you in 2014. Discussion “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” Deadpool #15-19 What We’re ... Read More »

Episode 064: Rotten Comic Books

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle a couple other new DC 52 titles; Animal Man and Swamp Thing, which share some story elements. Vince quite likes both, though I simply could not bring myself to care that much for either title. What I did love however, was Avenging Spider-Man #3! Insanely awesome. Discussion Animal Man Swamp Thing What We’re Reading Vince: Demon Knights Roger: Avenging Spider-Man... Read More »

Episode 038: We heart Remender

By CBI

The problem with editing a ‘clean’ podcast, is that you not only have to listen for every swear, but that you also want to keep a close ear for any inappropriate discussions or comments as well. The problem with co-hosting and editing a ‘clean’ podcast, is that you know just how much work goes into cleaning up a podcast. A swear here or there is nothing the quack out, howev... Read More »

Episode 29: Wah Wahwah Wah

Episode 29: Wah Wahwah Wah

By CBI

This week’s recordings were both supremely disappointing and hilarious. Yes, recordings… plural. Due to technical difficulties during our regular Wednesday night recording, which were entirely my fault, this is what our tracks looked like. The upper track is mine. The lower track… yes, that flat line, is Vince’s. Unfortunately, due to some Skype shenanigans, Vince’s p... Read More »

Amazing Spider-Man Issue 641 “One Moment in Time, Part 4”

Amazing Spider-Man Issue 641 “One Moment in Time, Part 4”

By Vince

I’m actually getting tired of talking about this storyline. It started off quite well in Issue 638, but has been experiencing a steady decline in quality. It’s now absolutely clear that Quesada had no solid plan for how to execute this story. Well, maybe he had a plan and it just sucked. Over the past decade, Quesada has been an integral part of Marvel as Editor-in-Chief. He’s been a good decision... Read More »

Amazing Spider-Man Issue 640: “One Moment in Time, Part 3”

Amazing Spider-Man Issue 640: “One Moment in Time, Part 3”

By Vince

I still really want to like this storyline. I applaud Quesada for actually telling it. It would have been very easy to just say “Mephisto did it” and move on like “One More Day” was no big deal. However, with that story being so controversial, he felt the fans deserved this story. Then again, the fans that were most pissed off about “One More Day” have no interest in “One Moment in Time.” So, it’s... Read More »
