Episode 236: Indy and the Iron Phoenix

By CBI

With all the talk of Star Wars as of late, I thought it’d be fun to go back and look at some comics about one of my passions from when I was young: Indiana Jones. Dark Horse published a number of stories, this one from late 1994 to spring of 1995. The idea behind the series was meant for a LucasArts video game, however that wound up being cancelled. Luckily, we still got the story in this li... Read More »

Episode 209: Lotta D in that Cell Block

By CBI

This week, we’re back with more Daredevil. Devil in Cell Block D is a fantastic prison suspense/drama. We get lots of great moments as events chip away at Matt’s calm demeanour, revealing the troubled soul beneath. I was far more critical of this story-arc than Vince, though part of that many be because we’ve read three “is he or isn’t he” Daredevil story-arcs t... Read More »

Episode 207: The All-New Uncanny Daily Globe

By CBI

This week, Vince decided we needed to discuss Daredevil again… and I’m kinda glad he did. We discussed Bendis’ Out story-arc, and both of us agreed that it is absolutely fantastic. Also discussed this week, Thor, and as I said during the podcast, mark your calendars, because this was the day I defended Thor against Vince. Tons of other comics during What We’re Reading. And ...

Episode 187: Time’s Running Out

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 182: Valiant Delinquents

By CBI

This week, we tackle some Valiant comics. Vince has been praising Archer and Armstrong for quite some time now, so he decided it was time for me to start reading it as well. He also tossed in some Quantum and Woody and The Delinquents for good measure. In our What We’re Reading segment, we touched on some great stuff from Nova, Magneto, and of course, Skull-Kickers. Enjoy. News Liefeld App D... Read More »

Episode 175: Leaves on the Wind

By CBI

This week, Vince and I return to Serenity, covering the mini-series “Leaves on the Wind” which just ended. We both absolutely loved it, which is no surprise. It’s not just that we’re massive fans of the IP. The mini-series is fantastic, even for folks new to Firefly. We also discussed a whole lotta comics in the What We’re Reading segment. Ok, I discussed a lotta comi... 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 139: Infinity Begins

This week, Vince and I tackle the start of Infinity from Marvel. So far, Hickman and crew have been doing a fantastic job, though we did have a few critiques. And then there’s Superior Spider-Man. Dan, have my baby. Please. Enjoy. Discussion Infinity #1 Infinity: Against the Tide #1 Avengers #18 Avengers Assemble #18 Captain Marvel #15 New Avengers #9 What We’re Reading Vince: Superior...

Episode 108: Making out with himself

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle more of the new Marvel NOW! titles, with a couple Avengers and some X-Peeps. Honestly, I’ve gotten really tired of the adjective stupidity with the titles, or perhaps we should say lack of imagination. Vince points this out with the “New Avengers”, which doesn’t really jive with the story. Enjoy. Discussion New Avengers #1 Savage Wolverine #1 U... Read More »
