Comic-Books-Kingdom-Come-003

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.

You won’t believe it, but the boys are officially off Skype and back to normal recordings! Take that, Void! And even better, Mild Mannered Music Man Mike (alliteration?) rejoins to reunite the trio as they dive deep into the world of Alias, an alternative Marvel comic simply fraught with metaphors, noir influences and the word “motherfucker.”

Also, they take time to extract reviews from Mike on the webcomics he viewed under meds, and Sam explains his love/hate relationship with Mark Millar and particularly his work on Ultimate X-Men. What is Alex’s Pick of the Week? What does Sam insist he’s picked in his heart of hearts? All this and more this week, tune in and enjoy!

Episode #18 – Mild Mannered Slices of Life

26 08 2009

It’s Special Treat Week again, as we flip everything all topsy-turvy to bring you a buffet–a veritable smorgasbord if you will–of webcomics reviews! Though sadly missing Mike the Mild Mannered Music Man, Alex and Sam wade through a pile of each others’ favorite webcomics, keepin’ it short and pithy all the way. Who is Charles Christopher and why is he so abominable? What makes “A Softer World” so damned creepy? And just how much does Sam like awkward female protagonists, anyway? All of the answers and more lie in wait for you!

And you better not miss our upcoming very special feature–highlights from Alex’s three interviews with Bobby Timony of Twin Comics, Scott Weinstein of After School Agent and Porter Mason, the cartoonist behind “Bassist Wanted.” You can’t find this stuff anywhere but here! Check it out!

19 08 2009

100-bulletsThis week, the mild-mannered team reunites as a whole as they give you the highs and lows of the first two volumes of Brian Azzarello’s 100 Bullets, but try not to get caught in the crossfire! Also, special guest Audrey gives us a review of her expedition to Comic-Con 09′ while the boys try to hold back their tears and envy. There will also be more attacks on Jeff Loeb (but respect given to Batman Hush), Alex confesses a dream involving Adam West, a quick shout-out to the hit manga One Piece, and the boys praise/rant about their zany weeks (which will include injuries, encounters, and,you guessed it, comics!)

Why not join us for the second part of our podcast with our review of Greg Pak’s Planet Hulk and World War Hulk crossovers, the Green Goliath gets a little bit milder!
