John, Alex, and Butch take time off after an insanely busy week to talk about The Answer! #1, Crime-Fighting Call Center Agents #1, and Uncanny X-Force #1! After a round of quick shots, the boys talk about Rob Liefeld’s Image Comics Screenplay, Podcast Graduations, and lotsa other fun stuff.
As the end of 2012 approaches, John, Alex and Migs sit down for one last time to look back on their favorites and least favorite things in comics. Topics range from favorite series and creators, to the… less positive versions of that same discussion. The boys also discuss what they’re excited about in the coming year in comics.
With the holidays (and possibly the End of All Things) upon us, we at the Tres Komikeros Podcast would like to thank all of you for sticking with us since 2008. None of us are math majors, but that’s like… nine years you’ve joined us for comics talk every week. Kidding aside, we wouldn’t still be doing this show if we didn’t love the medium, and sharing it with friends.
Happy Holidays from John, Alex, Miguel, EJ, Nick and Butch! Here’s to more great stories and great discussions in 2013! Thanks!
The boys return after a month off to talk about last week’s releases. John, Alex, and Nick review Wolverine Max #1, ghost #1, and Talon #1.
After a round if quick shots in which we talk mostly about Nick’s close-toed shoes, the discussion shifts to the X-Men First Class sequel, and Comixology’s new indie policies.
Cover of the Week is a presentation of the best cover from last week’s comic book releases, based on the art, design, and overall good looks.
Last week was Avengers week, so I guess everyone is busy looking at pictures of Iron Man, Thor, Cap, Hulk, ScarJo, and Jeremy Renner on the internet!
And speaking of Avengers, this week we have a lone Avenger for our cover of the week:
Moon Knight #12 by Alex Maleev
Now, I am a big fan of Maleev’s work, both covers and interiors. Ever since I’ve seen his work in Daredevil, I’ve never stopped following his projects. And I must say, his covers are one of the most iconic covers I’ve seen in Marvel.
This is a classic Maleev cover where he features the character in his full glory, while utilizing a design as minimalist as possible. In this case, using a full body pose with the bright moon as background, then frame it with his fist holding his signature weapon. And with that, we can see the character’s basic essence in one simple striking image!
To bad it’s the last issue. I’ll miss you, MK.
Now, here’s some other covers that I thought were pretty cool too:
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!
EJ, John, Migs and Alex(otherwise known as “The Other FF”) sit down to talk about this week’s hottest books in a free-wheeling show packed with comic reviews and opinions. Featured titles include Uncanny X-Men # 537, Green Lantern #66, Daken #9.1, FF #4, Venom #3, The Walking Dead #85, Wolverine #9, Batman and Robin #23, Amazing Spider-Man #662, and Incredible Hulks #629.
