It’s the 2009 Year Ender Episode with not two… not seven… but FOUR Komikeros at the microphones. Listen to EJ, Alex, John, and Migs recount the year’s best and worst comic moments, single issues, moments, and of course, ongoing titles. Enough with the preamble — this episode’s jam-packed, so get to listening!
Holy crap! It’s the 35th episode and we’re still proud to be geeks! Alex couldn’t join the foolishness this week, but EJ and John were around to deliver the douchery. And as if that isn’t already more than you can handle… this episode introduces the FOURTH komikero… Miguel! Books reviewed this week include Amazing Spider-man #614, Secret Six #16, and Invincible Iron Man #21.
After a round of quick shots, we enjoy War of Thumbs… and then cap off the show with a continuation of last week’s panel discussion about Comic Fan Elitism.
EJ and John grab a pot of coffee and get on their PCs late at night to bring you a special after-dark edition of Tres Komikeros. Books reviewed this week include Secret Six #13, Dark Reign THE LIST: Avengers #1 (i know!), and Kick-Ass #7. After a round of Quick Shots and War of Thumbs, the boys deliver some opinions about the Trades vs Monthlies debate.
After douching away about brand-new TV sets and messing around in comic shops, EJ, Alex, and John review Secret Six #4, Elmer #1, and Final Crisis #5. They also react to what they’ve seen of the live-action Dragonball film and the whole gender-switching trend in superheroes as of late. Lastly, the boys have a panel discussion about which of the big two universes they would like to live in as civilians.
Cover of the Week is my presentation of the best cover from last week’s comic book releases, based on the art, design, and overall good looks.
This week: The Dark Tower – Treachery #2(art by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove)
Jae Lee is one of the artists out there who makes good use of a lot of blacks in his art. His overall style in The Dark Tower series is nothing short of remarkable, and his interiors are as great as his covers. What I personally liked about this cover is her pose, though exaggerated, and how the bright gradient background compliments her. It’s like being dark, yet the colors give her a hint of femininity. And besides, who wouldn’t like a cute gunslinger girl?
Special mentions: 100 Bullets #96, BPRD – The Warning #4, and Marvel Zombies 3 #1
In our first episode, we review Secret Invasion: Front Line #3, Titans #4, and Secret Six #1. We also have a few quick shots about a few other books and a brief panel discussion about recent events in Amazing Spidey!
