FLASHBACK! Way, way back to the early days of the podcast: three guys sitting in a room, talking comics. Tim, Mulele, and Brandon discuss Steven T. Seagle and Teddy Kristiansen’s “It’s a Bird”, and Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s “Spider-man Blue” and “Hulk Gray”. (Regarding sound quality: in those days, I purposely downgraded the sound to keep the MP3 file small!)
“Only want 2 see u laughing in the Dark Reign…” Patrik and Tim compare notes on the new Dark Reign status quo, including some of the funnier moments so far.
Something about this month’s comics has left me feeling empty. I have no idea why. But, I was reading about what’s coming and although there were a few to take my ire out on, there weren’t any amazing new ones coming out. Sure, I found one for my pick-of-the-month and there are a couple that intrigue me, but I feel like the recession’s smacked everyone around a bit. Or maybe my Prozac hasn’t kicked in…
IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE
As is so often the case, I am completely succumbing to my addiction to all things Brian Michael Bendis. This month, he’s scribing the aftermath of Ultimate Spider-Man’s “disappearance” during the Ultimatum fiasco in the Ultimate Marvel Universe. I know. When I write it out, it sounds so terrible. The problem is that when Bendis writes it, it all sounds so wonderful. *sigh*
