Episode 199: Now you know how it feels

By CBI

This week, Vince and I discuss a recent favorite of his from Valiant, The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage. Truth is, I loved the series as well. It is very well written, with great characters and some original story elements. Not to mention awesome art. We also tackled Marvel’s Star Wars, Injustice in the hands of a new writer, X-Men, Spiders and Wolvies. Enjoy. Discussion The Death-Defying Doct... Read More »

Episode 187: Time’s Running Out

By CBI

This week, Vince decided to force a bunch of either nonsensical or bad comics on me. With the Avengers’ “Time Runs Out” event shifting gears, he figured it would make a good jumping on point for someone like me who hasn’t been keeping up with it. Turns out, as usual, that he was wrong. And of course, given the opportunity, he tried to get me to read Thor. Interesting discus... Read More »

Continuing with our summer movie tie-ins month, this week we tackle the man of steel, ol’ Superman himself. The new movie’s script was practically taken off of the pages of Superman: Birthright, written in 2003 by Mark Waid.

This week, Vince and I tackle the X-Termination event which terminated several on-going series. Overall, we weren’t that crazy about it. Sure, there were a few moments of glory, but overall, we felt these series deserved better endings.

Vince and I really loved the Death of the Family story-arc that just wrapped up in the Batman titles.

Episode 076: The Omega Effect

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle The Omega Effect, a 3-part cross-over which started in Avenging Spider-Man, wound its way through to The Punisher and finally into Daredevil. Vince and I both agree that the concept had potential, however the execution left much to be desired. The story had far too many ill-written bits, which is very surprising considering the talent behind it, namely Greg Rucka and ... Read More »

We were thrilled to hear that Jonathan Maberry had been nominated for a Stoker Award for Marvel Universe vs Wolverine, and wish him the best of luck. We’re also very happy that the medium is finally getting a shot at an award this year.
