October 11, 2016 12:44 am Thanks for the shows and the rewards, guys. It was nice timing to get the issue Flashpoint : Secret 7 (featuring Milligan's Shade: The Changing Man) the same week as the new Shade series.
July 11, 2016 3:25 am Hats off to you, Josh!! You may not be on stage, but you're a behemoth of a one man show in insight and humor. Well done.
June 13, 2016 7:00 pm The chuckle I get recalling Josh busting into the Red Robin commercial copy about” a savory beef patty and applewood bacon” when Tim was first saddled with the Red Robin identity years ago is enough to make the RR tolerable. The glowing spider, on the other hand makes absolutely no sense practically or visually. It’s an unpleasant clash to have that green amid the classic red & blue. If they really needed the glow they could have at least made it yellow and tied the look together through primary colors. Alas, even if this tweak was made, nothing can help those new boots. Anyone know who designed the new Spidey look? I refuse to believe Camuncoli would do this…
February 8, 2016 2:10 pm Wow!! I loved the Morrison run, but I can't say I don't agree with you about Morrison never opening the box in the first place. I loved all of the side conversations this film afforded you guys and hope Titans is good for the next one...
February 8, 2016 2:31 am I was under the impression that Damian died in issue 8 of Morrison & Burnham's "Batman Incorporated" Volume 2 and it was Tomasi, Kubert, and the current DC regime that brought him back after that. This isn't as much a "well, actually" as a "Did I miss something?", but Conor, when you refer to Morrison bringing Damian back are you talking about when Morrison first introduced Damian as the baby from the end of "Son of the Demon" in his first arc on "Batman", being introduced in The New 52 continuity in Morrison's 2nd volume of "Batman Inc", or (spoilers) the final page reveal of that series? Maybe it's that final page, but the Damian we knew throughout the run was dead at that point and I don't blame Morrison if someone took that reveal and did their worst with it...
January 13, 2016 12:05 am The second issue's a couple weeks out, but I thought Josh & Conor could use a War Corner bump and Aftershock's "Dreaming Eagles" #1 by Garth Ennis & Simon Coleby turned out to be fantastic start to a tale about the Tuskegee Airmen.
December 22, 2015 7:21 pm The Namor death didn't get much mainstream press, but I saw it making the rounds the last few weeks and wondered, "Do people outside comics fandom even know who Namor is?"... Been loving the JESSICA!s, Ron. Don't ever give it up. Whenever I need to laugh I'll just listen to the closing moments of #515 where even Conor drops one to match you. I give that show C+, but you're pulling into B- territory with every uttering of that name...
August 23, 2015 8:02 pm For almost the exact same tone and a similar artistic look to '1872' with no connection to Battleworld and completely new characters in grounded western world ala Jonah Hex let me suggest Dennis Hopeless & Tigh Walker's 'Big Thunder Mountain Railroad' from Marvel. This book just wrapped last week,but the other 2 Disney Kingdoms/Marvel series ('Seekers of the Weird' & 'Figment') both got sequel minis so there may be another before long. Oh, and it saddens me to inform you guys that '1872' ends with issue 5 (although, it seems Red Wolf will stick around in the all-new Marvel U).
June 1, 2015 11:21 pm Eat your heart out Broadway, this was a "one man show" with soul & sass to spare... Great job, Josh!!
May 10, 2015 7:38 pm Inhuman continues into the "Inhumans :Attilan Rising (Secret Wars)" mini-series written by Soule, but I'm not sure on the artist. After that it's "Uncanny Inhumans" #1 picking up from that McNiven #0 issue awhile back. I gotta thank Josh for getting me into this Inhuman series...
