This week, Vince and I tackle an indie series: The Shepherd. Its creator, Andrea Lorenzo Molinari, reached out to us and asked if we’d be interested in reading his work. As it turned out, we were very interested. We also discussed the $#^& storm that was Captain America, as well as X-Men: Apocalypse – also full of $#^&. Enjoy.

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 »

Episode 163: Out of Time

With the recent release of Captain America 2 (the movie), Vince thought it was the perfect time to tackle the origin of the Winter Soldier. While not a huge fan of Cap’s, I still do enjoy well-written stories which feature him, and this certain fit that bill. Vince also gave his thoughts on the movie. If you’d been on the fence about watching it, this should help you decide. And lastly... Read More »

Captain America Movie Review

By Vince

Finally, the long wait is over; Captain America: The First Avenger is now in theaters. I managed to catch a midnight release screening, and was very impressed. I’m going to attempt to make this review as spoiler-free as possible, but if you know the basic story of Captain America, you know the movie. Steve Rogers was a skinny kid, unfit to serve in the military, no matter how much he was wil... Read More »

During the previous story arc, Baron Zemo, a longtime Captain America villain, revealed to the world that the new Captain America was none other than Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers’s long-thought-dead sidekick and the former Soviet assassin known as the Winter Soldier.
