CM Podcast 139 – Avengers: No Surrender

We will be talking about the epic 16 part weekly Avengers storyline that begins with issue #675: No Surrender!

The story is so humongous in scope that it need 3 writers and 3 artist to tell it:

Writers: Mark Waid, Al Ewing and Jim Zub

Artists: Pepe Larraz, Paco Medina and Kim Jacinto

The only issues available so far are part 1 (675) and part 2 (676).  We decided we wanted to get on this early so you don’t miss the boat on this story.

Jon has never been an Avengers fan so this is his first dip into their universe.  In issue 675, we are introduced to Valerie Vector AKA Voyager

You remember Valerie Vector!  She was one of the founding members of the Avengers!!  What do you mean you don’t remember her?  Well, that is because she was just created this year and retconned (we explain what this term means in the podcast) into the Marvel Universe.  This threw Jon for a loop because he thought she really was an older character.  Besides introducing a golden age character we never met before, you also find out that the Earth has been stolen and it’s up to the Avengers to figure out who did it.

This is a great starting point for those that have never read this title and, with only 2 issues out, it seems that it will be a ripping yarn.

Here is a quick reference guide to the different Avengers teams that exist today:

CM Podcast 37 – These books need some love.

Hello again,

Welcome back to Comics Misremembered!  This week we are going to be talking new comics – specifically comics that may get cancelled if you do not start reading them.  We have 4 titles to “sell” you.

Before we get into that, you may have noticed some issues with the Comics Misremembered podcast this week on iTunes such as a lag in updating and the logo missing.  This is happening because I am trying to up date some information to iTunes and it is not going according to plan.  I will eventually delete the podcast off iTunes and then submit it again so it is updated properly.  Keep posted to this website for more details.

Now, on with our review for new comics.  These are the 4 titles that we will be talking about:

  • Marvel’s Vision – written by Tom King with art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta
  • Marvel’s The Ultimates – written by Al Ewing with art by Rocafort
  • Marvel’s Hercules – written by Dan Abnett with art by Luke Ross
  • Image’s Ring Side – written by Joe Keating with art by Nick Barber

In the podcast, we give you multiple reasons why you will like and continue to read these books so listen to it and give it it the “First Issue Try”.  We are sure you will find a title or 4 that you like and want to continue to read.

That’s all for now.  Thanks for listening.

Your comics pal,

Jim
