Episode 247: Switcharoos, part of a balanced breakfast

By CBI

This week, we split our main discussion between Marvel and DC, and in a surprising twist, we far preferred the DC comics. I guess it helps that they were both written by Tom Taylor. We also spent quite a bit of time on the Secret Wars wrap-up… and suffice it to say, we could have dedicated an entire, extra-long episode to that final issue alone. Plus, lots more. Enjoy. Discussion Uncanny X-M... Read More »

Episode 212: For The Love of Ultron

By CBI

This week, Vince and I discuss Ultron, in all his emo glory, within the pages of Avengers: Rage of Ultron, a new Marvel trade-paperback. While the TPB has some good elements, including the exceptional artwork, it suffers from a weak main plot and a ridiculous climax. In our What We’re Reading segment, we dove into Nova, Uncanny X-Men, Convergence, Thor, and lots more. Enjoy. Discussion Aveng... 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 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 184: X-Force

By CBI

This week, Vince decided he couldn’t wait for me anymore, and so made me read the new X-Force. Turns out he was right, it is fantastic. Also discussed this week, some Batman, Wolverine, Cyclops and a pesky raccoon. Enjoy. Discussion X-Force #2-7 What We’re Reading Vince: Original Sin, Earth 2, Batman Eternal Roger: Rocket Raccoon, Cyclops, Death of Wolverine, Batman Detective Comics, U... Read More »

Episode 179: Guardians of the Galaxy

By CBI

This week marks our 4th anniversary with Comic Book Informer. We released our first episode on August 4th, 2010. It’s been a fun ride, and there’s no better way to enjoy this anniversary than by shocking Vince again and again. On this episode, we talked about Guardians of the Galaxy. A lot. We gave our thoughts on the movie, as well as several different comics, including the main discu... Read More »

Episode 165: X-Files Conspiracy

By CBI

What an episode. I had no idea it would roll this way, however every once in a while, a serious discussion is needed when the actions of creators stray so far from the morally acceptable (and no, I’m not referring to Booth this time, though he did of course get a mention). As promised, here is Jim Lee’s Twitter timeline, including the offensive tweet which he later deleted. He should k... Read More »

Episode 156: All-New Uncanny Avenging Point One Dot NOW!

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle four of the new wave of Marvel NOW! comics. For the most part, we weren’t overly impressed, although there was a lot of potential in a few of the series. Let us know what you think about these ridiculously named issues. Discussion All-New Marvel NOW Point One #1 All-New X-Factor #1 Black Widow #1 Revolutionary War: Alpha What We’re Reading Vince: Nova, Ama... Read More »

We also covered some fantastic comics in What We’re Reading, including the long-awaited 4th issue of Little Victory. Enjoy.
