iFanboy Video Podcast
It's a good old fashioned Vault show! Conor goes back to the big one with Battlefields. Ron takes us to the roots of Image Comics with Todd McFarlane's Spawn, and Josh talks about the horror of violence in Africa with Unknown Soldier.
Battlefields Vol. 1
Conor likes it when Garth Ennis writes war comics, because then Garth Ennis makes his best comics. Luckily Dynamite has given him the ability to do so, and we get this trio of World War 2 tales with Battlefields Vol. 1. Collecting Night Witches, Dear Billy, and Tankies, Ennis and his exceptional artists bring unique corners of the war right to the reader, and it is captivating.
Spawn Origins Vol. 1
Todd McFarlane was as big a creator as there was when he left Marvel and co-founded Image Comics, and Spawn was his masterpiece, and it's still going today. Ron was a big, big fan back then, and still is today. Image is releasing high quality reprint collections of McFarlane's signature creation, and it is still a good example of some pretty good comics.
Unknown Soldier Vol. 1: Haunted House
Writer Joshua Dysart captures a war torn Uganda and the absolute horrors of the harsh life there, and combines it with a new take on a classic DC property, creating the Unknown Soldier. Josh warns that it's not a fun ride, but it is very well executed, and the art by Alberto Ponticelli is something special, and it's an important work of comic fiction that's uncomfortably close to reality.
