I take the long way around (as usual) to talk about two of my favorite comic book universes, Invincible and Powers. I also discuss my new favorite comic shop (although I do most of my comic book buying from DCBS) Comics & More in the Plymouth Meeting Mall in Norristown PA.
Host Derek Coward talks about how to find the shows taking part in the Dog Days of Podcasting challenge, why heartburn scares him, how he sees the differences between the comic book companies, and why he doesn’t like to start from the beginning.
Mike and Chris discuss Superman #76, Hawkman Vol 3 #29, Wonder Woman #315, Cyberforce Vol 2 #1, Action Comics #241, Stormwatch #2, Listener Questions and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century Testimony of a Traitor
Your intrepid host is off this week fighting the good fight against those who deserve to be fought against. He leaves the show in the drunken hands of some fool who barely introduces the rest of the show. Luckily, Raker’s Raiders save the day with a discussion that includes SDCC, Ant-Man, Secret Wars #1, and Emperor Doom!
Ed and Chris jump right into this episode with comic talk!
Ed explores a digital comic called HEX11 and talks about the first four issues. You can check out this series at HEX11’s web site – http://hexcomix.com/. He then takes some time to talk about IDW’s current run of Disney comics and why you should be reading them. He wraps up with an overall review of GOTHAM BY MIDNIGHT #1-6 and admits it’s the best thing he’s read all year.
Chris addresses his love of kaiju as he talks about ENORMOUS Vol.2 #1. He then breaks the ultimate rule – he talks about FIGHT CLUB 2. And then closes out the show with ARCHIE VS PREDATOR #4 and how hanging on to something ridiculous can pay off in the end.
