Welcome to Part 2 of our special comic-book topic of Journalism in Comic Books! To conclude our special event, we go over Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli’s DMZ, a shocking post-9/11 fictional piece with some of the heaviest material yet, not to mention some heavy critique from us! Plus, we give quick reviews of some of this year’s new hit games; including Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Scribblenauts, and a second look at Batman: Arkham Asylum! There will be laughs, insensitive jokes, cranky podcasters, memorable buffoonery, and much much more this week on the Mild-Mannered Podcast!

This week’s installment of Masterpiece Comic-Book Theatre also contributes to Journalism by revisiting Superman: The Amazing Transformations of Jimmy Olsen, with Alex himself reprising the title role! Enjoy!

Can you believe it? The Podcast has reached its 20th episode and going strong! On this special episode, the boys are at odds when their opinions and debates over Mark Waid and Alex Ross’s Elseworld’s epic, Kingdom Come, clash! Also, the recent purchase of Marvel by Disney is looked at half-full AND half-empty. Not to mention the news flash from Alex about the fate of  the super male-bonding trade series, Marvel Bromance! Masterpiece Comic-Book Theatre delivers its newest installment from Dan Slott’s She-Hulk!

BUT WAIT! We also got to talk to both Dennis Calero, artist for such great books as X-Men Noir and Sliders, and Jordan D White, assistant editor at Marvel Comics on The Incredible Hercules (not to mention the brains behind Age of the Sentry!). You can catch some of the best parts of the interview in this episode, and be sure to check back later in the week for the full 90-minute extravaganza of fascinating conversation with two super classy industry insiders.
