…aaaaand BACK! John, Alex, and Migs return from the Avengers hangover to talk about Locke and Key: Clockworks #6, Dancer #1, and Batman Incorporated #1! After a round of quick shots, the boys discuss Gay Marriage in Comics as well as the difference between “Best” vs “Favorite”.
THOR fever has hit all of comics fandom, and John, Migs, and Alex have convened under the shadow of the world tree to discuss The Mighty Thor #1! Also discussed this week are Planet of the Apes #1, Locke and Key: Keys to the Kingdom #6 and a ton of other books.
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!
Must we really say anything else? Fine, fine. EJ, Alex, and John review the kick-off issue of the new Superman arc, World of Krypton #1, Locke and Key: Headgames #3, and Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk #3, the much anticipated continuation from Filipino superstar penciller Leinil Francis Yu.
This episode’s a little late, but we hope everyone had a nice nerdy weekend anyway. This week’s main books are Locke and Key: Head Games #1, Prometheus #1, and G.I. Joe #1. Lotsa first issues for you guys. We also have a round of quick shots that includes Final Crisis #6! But watch out for major spoilers! In relation to that, we talk about major characters not getting the privilege of dying in their own books, Sam Jackson’s Nick Fury, and Keanu Reeves’ next film.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a Smile Pile, but consider this my way of telling you guys we ARE gonna have an episode this week. Things are just a bit delayed coz we’ve got some junk going on in the real world.
The first volume of Locke and Key was one of our favorite minis to come out last year. We can’t wait to read the new set subtitled HEAD GAMES as well as talk about the rest of the week’s awesome books.
Also out this week:
BPRD BLACK GODDESS #1 (OF 5)
ACTION COMICS #873
FINAL CRISIS #6 (OF 7) (yaaaawnnn…)
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #32
CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI 13 #9
GI JOE #1
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!
