Plus, we go back in time and discuss LAST WEEK’s incoming trades as well as THIS WEEK’s thanks to the powers of Chronokinesis!! (AKA the Internet).  We also have a big talk of what Iron Man has been going through in the Marvel Universe as well as where he is going! LISTEN IF YOU DARE!!!

Continuing Monsterpiece Comic Book Theatre, we give you a short yet frighteningly witty scene from Dan Slott’s Arkham Asylum : Living Hell!!!

This week, we got a one-two punch special;  we will discuss/debate/bicker over the Best, the Worst, and the Weirdest Fathers and Fatherly figures of comic books. You’ll find out why we think Uncle Ben is unquestionably great  while Magneto and General Ross are just plain abysmal. But wait, there’s more! We top off the show with Deadpool Appreciation Week, where we will (individually) review 3 different perspectives of the famous “Merc with a Mouth”. Is your favorite Deadpool comic/trade being reviewed? We don’t know! You’ll have to tune in and find out!

Plus, a special message to Liu Kang of “Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe,” Alex’s new favorite writer, the most perfect thing ever said in a Green Goblin voice, and a special mission for all you wonderful listeners! We’ve got all of that and more on this week’s episode!

Episode #5 – Popgun Popped A Cap In Our Podcast

30 05 2009

And so we come to the end of our archive, with our lengthy review of Popgun Vol.1, “a graphic mix tape” edited by Mark Andrew Smith and Joe Keatinge. This was our first long-distance podcast, so in between the audio hiccups, we discussed Alex’s comic book bender in New York City, Sam gushed over the Batman: Mad Love hardcover edition, and Mike the Mild Mannered Thespian delivered a chilling performance of Norman Osborn’s barely-sane monologue in Warren Ellis’s Thunderbolts #120 for Masterpiece Comic Book Theatre.
