Comic News Insider: Episode 51 will be available for free download by 9 a.m. Click on the link or go to iTunes to get it! It's our special 51st episode. Why special? Because it's right after the big 50th episode! What? 51 can't be special? Don't be racist!
We start off with reviews of a few #1's. Garth Ennis/Darick Robertson's The Boys #1. An ultra-violent adult anti-superhero squad with bad language and a worse attitude. DC revamps an old character completely with Deadman #1. Marvel has a bit of fun with 2 established characters in Claws #1. And we'd be remiss if we didn't mention 52 #15. Why? Because Booster Gold dies. Oh, shut it. I didn't spoil it for you. It's given away on the cover and really....who cares? Besides his best bud, Blue Beetle. Oh wait...DC killed that character off recently too.
As always, we cover more news than the actual news does. Except ours is comic book related. Coverage includes: the huge Civil War late controversy at Marvel, Marvel's reversal of it's policy on gay/lesbian characters, Spider-Man comic reprints inserted in newspapers, Lone Ranger #1 variant cover, Thundercats cartoon relaunch, etc.
Movie news includes bits about Fantastic 4:Rise of the Silver Surfer, Halo, Batman 2, Hulk 2, Transformers and Wanted.
We finish off the last of our San Diego Comic-Con interviews with Antony Johnston, writer on Wasteland. What's that you say? Some of you were expecting Ed Brubaker. I know. Apologies for that, but there was a mix up in our schedules and we are going to have to do it at a later date. Fret not! We'll get him.
Get a hold of us!
