CM Podcast 101 – DMZ

Comics Misremembered Podcast 101

We have done 100 podcasts and this is the start of 100 more!

This week, Jon has read one of the comics that he missed when it originally came out.  We discussed this in Comics Misremembered Podcast 95 and that comics is:

DMZ

by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli

This comic is as relevant today as it was when it was published in 2006.  The story is told through the eyes and words of Matty Roth – the only embedded photojournalist in the Manhattan DMZ.  Want to know more?  Listen to the podcast!

We talk politics and comedy – you will swear you were listening to an episode for Bill Maher’s Real Time or the Daily Show.

Your comics pal,

Jim

CM Podcast 40 – Marvel’s Standoff and more!

Another week.  Another podcast.

This week is something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.  The Old is that we are reviewing Marvel’s 2007 Civil War miniseries.  The New is the brand new Marvel’s Standoff: Welcome to Pleasant Hill comic that came out.  The Borrowed is that Standoff will lead into Civil War II which is a retread of Civil War.  Finally, The Blue is the blue curtain that holds back the new DC Comics Rebirth and it is not going to be fun.

Part 1: Civil War

civil war 01

Jon and I go over the 2007 Civil War miniseries – How a group of careless heroes’ prime time TV adventure leads to one of the biggest atrocities in the Marvel universe.  This event triggers government action and starts the Super Hero Registration Act.  Heroes choose sides: to register and work for the government or rebel and protect your own free liberties.  It is a great story and we are looking forward to the movie.

Then we move on to Part 2…

Avengers: Standoff – Welcome to Pleasant Hill.

We both liked this stand alone comic and the surprises that it holds so instead of spoiling any of the stories, Jon and I talk about 2 TV shows that are similar in concept and theme to the comic.

Finally, we move on to part 3…

DC’s Rebirth – We dislike Rebirth.  I mean, we really, really don’t like this.  This project is so unnecessary and we both feel DC will turn off many long time fans of their comics.  This will be the beginning of Reboot Blow Back.  This is bad for comics and we explain why.

 

That is all for now.  Thanks for listening.

Your comics pal,

Jim
