Episode 059: Year in Review

Year in Review “Basically, just a look back at what we liked best over the past year. Not necessarily a “best of” because I’ll be damned if I can remember half the comics I read this year.” – Vince What We Liked Flashpoint New 52 – Batman – Flash Amazing Spider-Man – Spider Island Venom Uncanny X-Force Marvel Universe vs Wolverine Chew Individu...

This week’s episode was supposed to remain on track… however both Vince and I couldn’t contain our chattier selves with the topics; Spider Island, the end of Flashpoint and the start of DC’s relaunch with Justice League #1. Long, but fantastic episode. Discussion Spider Island -Amazing Spider-Man #667 & 668 -Cloak and Dagger -Spider-Girl -Deadly Hands of Kung Fu -Deadl... Read More »

Episode 039: The Return of the Mighty Joe

By CBI

This week, with Vince on holidays, Joe from our For The Lore podcast decides to step up to the plate and delivers a slammin’ home run. Ok, enough with the sports metaphors. We are, after all, a comic book podcast, and when it comes to such things, Mr. Perez is indeed well versed. He and I talk about Flashpoint to this, well, point. We discuss all of the tie-ins, and give our thoughts on thos... Read More »

Episode 035: Vince on Location

By CBI

This week’s episode of the Comic Book Informer podcast was an exercise in frustration and fun. Vince’s modem died right before recording, and being the ever dedicated podcaster that he is, he headed outside, in a coming storm, so that he could get the best possible reception so as to Skype into the broadcast from his phone. I lost him a couple of times, but we did manage to still get a... Read More »

Episode 031: Hammer Time

By CBI

After giving Flashpoint a lot of praise last week, we decided to tackle Marvel’s major story-line this week. Sadly, there was very little praise. In fact, there was a whole lotta disgust and disappointment. Also this week, we discuss the end of the Uncanny X-Men, as well as some more DC Relaunch news.

Episode 030: Thpoyler Alert

By CBI

This week sees me in the big boy chair, and Vince in the crib as we discuss Flashpoint at great length. Both Vince and I have been seriously diggin’ this story-arc, and are able to easily see it as the perfect launching pad for DC’s relaunch. We also cover some Generation Hope and Age of X post-mortem.

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 »
