CM Podcast 151 – Infinity Gauntlet

Remember that time when Thanos killed half the universe?  You don’t?  C’mon, you memeber!  He got that bedazzled glove and just waved his hand and killed half the universe including several Marvel superheroes like Hawkeye and Sersi.  Is it coming back to you now?  That’s right!  We’re talking about The Infinity Gauntlet miniseries that came out in 1991.

The Infinity Gauntlet was written by Jim Starlin and it had artwork from George Perez and Ron Lim. 

In the podcast, we give a little history on the characters: Thanos and Adam Warlock and we talk about how the idea for the Infinity Gauntlet miniseries came about.  We then talk about the story and what we hope to see the the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movie.

Your comics pal,

Jim

Comics Misremembered Podcast 103

The 1st Guardians of the Galaxy movie came out in 2013. The sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just came out on 5/5/2017.  Both movies were very successful so you are pretty familiar with…

We are celebrating our 2nd year anniversary (5/15/2015) this week and we do it by giving you a brief history on who are the comic versions of the Guardians from 1969 and 2008.  We also never had a chance to review the 1st Guardians movie so this is a double review of Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.  Sit back and relax and let the non-sense flow over you.

Your comics pal,
