In this episode, John and Migs kick around the world of comic books and discuss Nova #1, SEX #1, and Age of Ultron #1! After a round of quick shots, the boys discuss the rumors of Nolan and Bale’s involvement in the JLA movie, the new Iron Man 3 trailer, and the recent Orson Scott Card hooplah.
John, Alex, and Migs step off the police lineup to review Saga #2, Alabaster Wolves #1, and America’s Got Powers #1! After a round of quickshots, the boys discuss Spider-Men, Infinite Comics, and Comic Book Men!
John, Migs, and Alex brave a rainstorm to bring you a special episode of Tres Komikeros. THE LIST is our compilation of 100 comic recommendations we think you guys should read. Now. And in this initial installment, we bring you the first ten items.
EJ and Alex take over your headsets and handle this episode of TK like inmates out of Arkham and bring you kick-ass reviews of Ultimate Comics: Enemy #1, Green Lantern #50, and Captain America: Reborn #6. The duo also bring you a round of quick shots, after which they share their views about this week’s big tech news.
It’s the 2009 Year Ender Episode with not two… not seven… but FOUR Komikeros at the microphones. Listen to EJ, Alex, John, and Migs recount the year’s best and worst comic moments, single issues, moments, and of course, ongoing titles. Enough with the preamble — this episode’s jam-packed, so get to listening!
With Alex and EJ busy with the Christmas rush, John and Migs set up a table for two and review Captain America: Reborn #5, Incorruptible #1, and Brave and Bold #30. After a round of quick shots, the boys discuss Bryan Singer back on the X-men franchise and talk about news regarding the 300 sequel. They end the show with their ideas for inter-company superhero team-ups. Look out, JMS!
Forget what people say, the best remedy for a hangover is senseless nerd talk… as one (or all) of the Komikeros show in this latest installment of shenanigans and goings-on. After reviewing Blue Beetle #36, Fantastic Four #564, and Savage Dragon #145, EJ, Alex, and John discuss some good news about Sam Jackson’s Marvel ties, and finally get all serious to talk about Marvel closing their Open Submissions Policy.
Cover of the Week is my presentation of the best cover from last week’s comic book releases, based on the art, design, and overall good looks.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! How were your holidays? Cool? Yes? It’s a new year and I’m still at it! Featuring the best comic book cover last week’s releases have to offer! This week, we will feature art from one of my favorite noir artists. The exceptionally talented Sean Phillips!
Incognito #1 (Sean Phillips)
This is actually a wrap-around cover for the new book from the dudes that gave us Criminal and Sleeper. What makes this my choice? A few reasons actually. This cover is a good example of good use of font design, it does not steal the attention from the art while maintaining a strong presence. The use of b/w with the exception of the burning bill and the fire, another way of contrasting elements, thus highlighting specific areas of the piece. And a masked dude lighting a cigar with a bill? That’s badass! Even Wolverine can’t beat that!
Panel of the Week: Fantastic Four #562 (art by Bryan Hitch)
And that’s my cue to sleep! I’ll see you boys and girls in a few days for more comics talk and nonsensical arguments!
We also have a round of War of Thumbs discussing the recent influx of TV-show comics, political content in comic books, and the censorship of All-Star Batman #10. To cap it off, we crossfired points about the difference between comics and graphic novels… assuming of course that there really is one.
