By CBI

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. It’s about time comics are more widely recognized as being able to deliver great stories, as with traditional books/short stories. So this is the week ... Read More »

Episode 066: Kraven’s Chump Hunt

By CBI

This week, because Vince thought we’d been discussing too much Batman and Spider-Man, he decided we should focus on a Spider-Man storyline. A retro storyline. He’d been wanting to discuss Kraven’s Last Hunt for as long as we’ve been doing the podcast, and saw this as the perfect time. Unfortunately, he was a tad disappointed that I don’t hold it in as high regard as h... Read More »

This week, Vince and I tackle a couple other new DC 52 titles; Animal Man and Swamp Thing, which share some story elements. Vince quite likes both, though I simply could not bring myself to care that much for either title. What I did love however, was Avenging Spider-Man #3! Insanely awesome.

Episode 052: Spider Island

By cbi

This week, Vince and I tackle Spider Island, Marvel’s newest event which crossed over into several titles. We discussed the various tie-in mini-series as well, tossing our two cents in as to whether they are worth reading. Hint: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu is a must read. Cloak and Dagger, not so much.

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 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. News Uncanny X-Men to end in October Discussion Fear Itself (including tie-ins) What WeR... Read More »
