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 »

This week’s episode kicks off Vince’s summer movie theme, where each week we’ll discuss a series which coincides with a superhero blockbuster. We kick it off with Iron Man.

Episode 121: Handful of Number 1s

Episode 121: Handful of Number 1s

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle a handful of number 1s, from Marvel, DC and Image. Overall, there was something to enjoy in each, whether just for one or both of us. Except Wolverine. We both agree there’s absolutely no need for yet another generic Wolverine title. Discussion Constantine #1 Wolverine #1 Guardians of the Galaxy #1 Five Ghosts: The Haunting of Fabian Gray #1 East of West #1 What... Read More »

Episode 119: Injustice… not as bad as we’d imagined

Episode 119: Injustice… not as bad as we’d imagined

By CBI

When Vince pitched this week’s episode to me, he didn’t even try to sugar-coat it. This was to be an episode where we make fun of something absolutely terrible. Thing is, the series actually has several redeeming qualities. Enough to make us keep reading it, which is saying a lot considering how many comics we read each week. Check it out and leave us a comment telling us what you thin... Read More »

Episode 116: The Death of Damian

Episode 116: The Death of Damian

By CBI

This week, Vince and I discuss the death of Damian. We give our thoughts on event, if it can in fact be qualified as such. We also discuss a new series which allows you to pay what you want per issue. We were actually very impressed with The Private Eye. You’ll want to hear what we have to say about it. And of course, Uncanny Skullkickers. Finally. As well as the winner of the signed copy. W... Read More »

Episode 114: Can’t agree on anything

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 113: Cover your hoochy-coochy!

Episode 113: Cover your hoochy-coochy!

By CBI

This week’s podcast started slow, however the content got us fairly excited at points. We absolutely loved the new Uncanny X-Men, from the writing to the art (god, that art); however we weren’t as enamoured with DC’s new wave. Also, though I hate ruining a surprise, for those reading the show notes prior to listening to the podcast, we are putting on a fantastic contest. Make sur... Read More »

Episode 084: Einstein’s A Badass

By CBI

This week, Vince and I have a lot of fun discussing one of our favorite new series, and that’s The Manhattan Projects by Sir Jonathan Hickman. Yes, I just knighted him. He deserves it! The series is only four issues in (three of which are discussed in this episode) and it is already setting itself up to be one of our favorites this year. Absolutely fantastic stuff, and we cannot wait to see ... Read More »

Episode 071: Getting Caught Up On The X-Peeps

By CBI

This week, Vince and I get caught up on the two newest X-Peeps series; namely Uncanny X-Men and Wolvie and his Peeps. Lots has happened in both of these series, which makes for a fun conversation. Also, Vince disapproves of me having my own opinions. Yet again. Discussion Uncanny X-Men #5-8 Wolverine & The X-Men #4-7 What We’re Reading Vince: Wolverine & The X-Men: Alpha & Ome... Read More »

Episode 067: Grim Hunt

Episode 067: Grim Hunt

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 »
