Comics Radar is guaranteed to be more entertaining than any Van Damme movie, or our money back.
It’s (past) time for another issue (episode) and December Previews.
Finally Sober. Finally back. Finally wrestled the computer away from my wife after she fried her hard drive in a lightning storm. Comics Radar 101. We review the events of episode 100, as far as we can remember them that is…
And we get into September previews.
For our 100th Episode, Matt and John sit down with the mics and belly up to the bar. We went live on Talkshoe for almost two hours. (Once we got the bugs worked out.) We talked about some comics stuff, had a few callers, and polished off a bottle of 92 proof rum. This episode is one of the few to get the explicit tag, so be warned. And as always we would love to know what you thought of the episode.
Forgot to add this video we referenced on the last podcast. It’s some of the greatest voice actors doing the Star Wars radio play as in the voice of their cartoon characters. Very cool. enjoy.
What’s the earliest a comic book series has been cancelled? Is it one day after solicitation? Todd McFarlane makes more ball money. Another GL makes the news, X-men: First Class 2 has a new name. Dark Knight Rises to $355 million despite John not buying a ticket.
And August previews.
Frequent commenter Derek Royal went ahead and started a new podcast. It includes two of my favorite things:
1. Intelligent people talking about comics (Ironic comment coming from Comics Radar right?)
2. More talk about comics that aren’t from Marvel and DC.
They have 4 episodes out so far. Go check out Comics Alternative
On Comics Radar 099, we talk about about this tattoo. It was done on a local radio show. First, cool, he got a batman tattoo. I’m not trying to disparage his geek cred or anything like that. And it’s a good quality tattoo with good line work. I just don’t like the tattoo. Maybe it’s just me being a Bat-symbol traditionalist. What do you think?
And we’re back for the post SDCC commentary… But first, DKR had an amazing opening weekend. Grant Morrison will be leaving his current DC books to work on a book that was supposed to be published in 2010. At SDCC, Marvel announced their new pile of movies: Iron Man 3, (with a great RDJ appearance) Captain America: The Winter Soldier, (and Brubaker’s reaction.) and Thor: The Dark World (with elves?). Also Guardians of the Galaxy (with Concept Art) and Ant-Man. Deadpool is getting a video game. Del Toro wants Hellboy 3. and Booster Goold tv show is closer than you think. And the Goon film may be going to kickstarter soon. Any Comics News? Gaiman is working on more Sandman. IDW has signed the MOST IMPORTANT COMICS LICENCE EVER and Marvel proved it has officially ran out of ideas by announcing A-babies v X-babies. Finally we talk about the Marvel Heroic roleplaying game John ran and how awesome the game is.
