It’s the first official episode of the year, and EJ, Alex, and John are back with a jam-packed episode showcasing Invincible Iron Man #9, Hellboy: The Wild Hunt #2, and Detective Hush Comics #852! The boys then hit you in the face with a round of quick shots, some Iron Man 2 news, and their opinions on the Transformers 2 teaser image. The show is rounded out with a couple of listener questions from the TK site.
It’s the 2008 year-ender episode! EJ was absent because he was drunk in a gutter somewhere, so it was up to John and Alex to look back at the year that just passed and dicuss the different things that rocked as well as the things that sucked. From the best mini-series to the year’s worst comic moments, this episode has it all — an excellent episode for you guys looking to pick up trades but have no idea what was good earlier this year. Happy Holidays once again and enjoy!
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.
Giggity-giggity-git! It’s that time of the week again where John spams me with IMs saying “I MISS YOU”, and I post the best of the best of the comics covers from last week’s releases. Now, without further delay, let me present, Jay Anacleto and the magic pens!

What I like about Jay Anacleto’s art is how ultra realistic it is. I can’t name that many people in the comics world who can do ultra realistic art and still be able to draw “moving” and dynamic panels. There’s nothing much to say about this cover because the art speaks for itself. I heard he used to draw with just ballpoint pens, and aside from being a comics artist, Jay Anacleto is a full time dentist too! I’m not sure, feel free to correct me, but that’s just JAWSOME! I suggest checking out his other stuff, mainly Aria and Spawn: Godslayer.

That’s it for me, stay tuned for more comics goodness!
