CM Podcast 95 – “Missed The Bus” Comics

Comics Misremembered Podcast 95

What does the title “Missed The Bus” comics mean?  It means great comic series that have been published but for what ever reason Jon and/or myself have never read.  The alternative title I have for this podcast is “Whats The Matter With You Dummies!?

Hard to believe that there are some comics that exist out there that Jon or myself have not read.  This is a true fact!  There are some many comics that exist that we cannot get to all of them so some of the gems get left in the mine.  Today, we talk about 3 of those series which are:

  • DMZ – Vertigo/DC
  • A Distant Soil – Image Comics
  • 100 Bullets – Vertigo/DC

We talk about why we missed reading them when they were first released, why we want to read them now and is it even possible to read comics that are no longer being published?

Just so you know, I have read DMZ and 100 Bullets.  It is only A Distant Soil that we both have not read.

Enjoy the podcast.

You comics pal,

Jim

CM Podcast 74 – New Comics Review

There are always new titles from comic publishers coming out every week and we try to select some of the best books to read.  Here are some of the comics that we highly recommend.

I apologize if we mispronounced any of the writers or artist names.  We will try better next time.

This podcast runs a little longer than our normal ones because there are so many things to talk about with each of these titles.  We hope you enjoy our reviews and find some new comics to pick up.

Also, Will Magnus is the creator of the Metal Men not the Magnetic Man.  My brain was on overload.  Sorry.
