Episode 140: The Sword

By CBI

This week, Vince and I cover a listener-submitted series: The Sword from Image. The series ran for 24 issues, almost entirely created by the Luna brothers (Joshua and Jonathan). I got through all 24 issues, while Vince made it through half the series. We don’t spoil everything that happens in the series, however we do give our honest thoughts on the work, which has its ups and downs. We also... Read More »

Episode 136: Friggin’ Turtles

By CBI

Normally, Vince likes to wait till a story-arc is done before covering it on the podcast, however after reading the last issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, he just couldn’t hold it in anymore. This week, we talk about the first three issues of the on-going story-arc, gushing about the writing, the art, hell, even the fight choreography. Everything rocks. We also cover a creator-owned ser... Read More »

Episode 114: Can’t agree on anything

By CBI

This week, Vince and I can’t seem to agree on anything. While he enjoyed Uncanny Avengers, I found it lacking, and while he was disappointed in Age of Ultron, I actually quite liked it. You know what that means; I was right. Don’t forget about the current giveaway. There’s still time to get your emails to me at roger (at) comicbookinformer (dot) come for your chance at a signed c...

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 »

Episode 102: Drowning Daken FTW

By CBI

This week’s episode started with an impromptu discussion of the latest couple super-hero movies which have just come out on video: Spider-Man and Batman. Neither of which I really cared for. Well, maybe that’s a little strong. I just have a lot of bad feels about both. There are things which really irked me a lot, and normally, I go into comic book adaptation movies with very, very low... Read More »

We’re a little late with this episode, however Sarah started a new shift which prevented us from recording until the weekend. Still, it was a fun episode, shooting the breeze ’bout Rob Liefeld’s recent Twitter attacks, as well as wrapping up all that’s happened in Uncanny X-Force since the Dark Angel Saga ended.

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 »

This week, Vince and I tackle the newly-returned (no one saw this coming) Fantastic Four. We also cover Uncanny X-Force, which is prepping for the upcoming Age of Apocalypse. We also give our thoughts on Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm, which was sadly, not nearly as good as we’d hoped. Enjoy.
