Episode 215: Convergence vs Secret Wars

By CBI

With Convergence and Secret Wars both hitting us at exactly the same time, it's only fitting that we tear them both apart in an extra-long episode of Comic Book Informer. While there are hints of great things within each, those moments are lost in what can only be described as a convoluted mess. Read More »

Episode 210: Magik

By CBI

This week, I decide we should have another spotlight episode. I decided on Illyana, as she’s such a fantastic character. Magic: Storm and Illyana was a four-part limited series that came out in the early 80s, and shows what occurred during the few seconds while Illyana was stuck in Limbo. While only a few seconds passed for the X-Men, seven long years passed for Illyana, and it is those year... Read More »

This week, Vince thought it’d be a good idea to tackle an iconic Daredevil story-arc… yes, that one where the Kingpin discovers his secret identity. While Vince wasn’t all that impressed, I actually enjoyed a large part of it. I feel the story got away from Miller toward the end, however it’s obvious he was building toward an unreal confrontation… and that’s wha... Read More »

Episode 204: Lotta Dark

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle a, well, a very dark story-arc in Batman: Dark Knight. It revolves around the Riddler, who is much… darker… than usual. Batman has to take part in a number of riddles which are far harsher than any we’ve seen from the Riddler before. We also discuss Uncanny X-Men and our love of Eva, as well as Thor, Bitch Planet, X-Force, the magic mirror, Miles and... Read More »

Episode 195: Welcome to Lovecraft

By CBI

This week, I decided we should focus on some older comics again. We haven’t had a retro episode for a while. Granted, we didn’t go that far back… just to 2008 for the start of Locke and Key. We also started the show off with some movie chatter (TMNT and Captain America 2), as well as some love for DC’s announcement of movie poster inspired covers coming our way in March of ’...

Episode 180: The Trial of Jean Grey

By CBI

This week, we continue on with some Guardians of the Galaxy loving’, by discussing a recent cross-over with the All-New X-Men: The Trial of Jean Grey. This was an odd event. Both Vince and I agreed that it felt so forced, a vehicle meant only to pair these two teams together. However even once paired, despite fantastic character moments, the plot itself never gave us much substance. We also ... Read More »
