Suicide Squad! Betty & Veronica! Manifest Destiny! Star Wars! Who is the tallest member of the Justice League? Is Jai Courtney a morphed Sam Worthington? What things do the TK boys have difficulty finding people to talk about with?
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.
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 a Massimo Carnevale comics cover festival! We have 2 books that came out last week which I think had the best covers, Conan The Barbarian #3 and the final issue Northlanders #50.
I love Massimo Carnevale’s work starting way back when he was doing the covers for Y the Last Man until now. He’s an artist who’s not only good at drawing people, but also gives the reader a taste of the overall feel of the book. Each cover is like a teaser poster that makes the reader curious and interested as to the book’s contents.
Take for instance this Conan cover. We have Conan grabbing Belit, who looks like she is seducing him, and the color tones suggest that they are in a semi-dream state underwater. These elements appear in the book, so what you expected to read after seeing the cover is what you get within!
I don’t know if I’m just being biased, but I love this cover of the final issue of Northlanders. An abandoned broken down helmet on a rock near the sea is a good metaphor for a battle that has ended. And the seagull’s legs show the remoteness of this battlefield. I find this image very dramatic and brutal at the same time, just as how the whole series have been. It’s been a great run. I’ll miss you, Northlanders.
Here are other covers that I thought were pretty cool: Saga #2 by Fiona Staples, ‘68 Scars #1 by Nat Jones, and Lobster Johnson #4 by Dave Johnson.
That’s all for now, see you next week for more covers goodness!
