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.
John and Migs are joined by Jad as they discuss expectations and qualms about 2011’s upcoming comic book movies. Thor, Green Lantern, Captain America, and X-Men First Class are all packed into this hour of talk. Join us again in a few days for a continuation of TK’s Top 100 Comics.
Yes kids! Time for another edition of COVER OF THE WEEK! This time, I will showcase two covers from the past two weeks (Oct 13 & 21 releases), featuring the covers of Hellblazer – City of Demons #1 (Sean Murphy) and Thor – First Thunder #2 (Jay Anacleto)
It’s not always easy choosing the cover for the week, especially if there’s not that many good books out on that week. Most of the time, they have a generic cover format or pose; and although it’s not noticeable to most of the readers, they have a tendency to look stale and static. But there are times when gems like these are found along with average and “meh” cover art. Two books with two very different styles, but both really are very pleasing to the eyes. (oh wow, did I just make a rhyme?)
So now let’s take a look at the covers, starting with Hellblazer – City of Demons #1.
… and Thor – First Thunder #2.
And there you have it! Sean Murphy and Jay Anacleto cover of the week double feature!
If you have your own cover of the week, or if you think I don’t know my art theories (which I don’t) and I’m just making these things up (which I do). Feel free to post a comment and we can do a pokemon battle!
WE’RE BACK! With Alex away on assignment, EJ, Migs, and John reunite to do what they do best — nerd out! Aside from talking about the books, TV shows, and movies they’ve been enjoying during the break, the boys review Action Comics #893, SkullKickers #1, and Avengers Prime #3.
After a round of quickshots, the boys discuss rumors of David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman involvement, Emma Stone as MJ, and Tom Welling’s super suit. Lastly, in the panel discussion: What creative advantages does Marvel have that DC doesn’t; and vice versa?
EJ, Alex, and John reunite to review Ellis and Granov’s iconic contemporary take on Iron Man, which laid down the groundwork for modern stories about ol’ shellhead. The boys also discuss the newly revealed movie outfits of Cap and Thor.
In the panel discussion, the boys discuss the biggest changes in their geekhood since they began the podcast almost two years ago.
In the first TK Book Club episode, EJ, Alex, and John assemble to talk about Alan Moore’s classic run on everyone’s favorite muck monster! With Jad chiming in at random parts of the show to spoil us all, join the boys as they share their thoughts on this classic Vertigo series, and then discuss recent changes in the Zuda Comics modus operandi.
In this special episode of TK, John and Migs are joined by Comic Book Club’s Alex Zalben, all the way from New York. The guys talk about Alex’s first Marvel series, Thor and the Warriors Four (out in the states today), and then they have an in-depth review of last week’s finale to DC’s Blackest Night.
John and Alex team up to bring you reviews of Brave and the Bold #32, Green Hornet: Year One #1, and Siege #3! After a round of quickshots, the boys discuss the rumor about Evans being Captain America and then go serious to discuss the trend of violence in comics and how it hurts the industry.
At the tail end of the show, John makes a personal announcement and introduces the TK Book Club — the monthly group reading activity that TK will spearhead to expand comic fan interaction. April’s TK Book Club Pick is Alan Moore’s Saga of the Swamp Thing (volume one). Listen to the show to learn more.
