CM Podcast 33 – Something for the ladies

2015 was a good year for the comics Bitch Planet and Ms. Marvel.  Both are highly acclaimed comics and have made several “Best of 2015” top 10 lists.

The questions tonight: Are Bitch Planet and Ms. Marvel the pinnacle of comics that feature female characters as the lead?

Jon and I tackle this question in tonight’s podcast and we offer 2 alternates to each comic that we believe are on par, if not better than Bitch Planet and Ms. Marvel.

Challenge #1 – What is as good if not better than Ms. Marvel?

  • Jon makes the case for Monsteress by Image
  • I make the case for Paper Girls by Image. (Spoilers – This book is awesome).

Challenge #2 – What is as good if not better than Bitch Planet?

  • Jon debates the merits of East of West by Image.
  • I plainly state that Saga (which won an Eisner for Best Ongoing Series of 2015) is a much better comic that features women.

We hope you like the podcast and subscribe to it on iTunes.

Also, I forgot to mention Lumber Janes – another great comic that won an Eisner for Best New Series of 2015.  Sorry.

Your comics pal,

Jim

Comics Misremembered Podcast 33

CM Podcast 8 – Heroes – in your livingroom!

Hello and welcome back to another CM Podcast, faithful listeners.

This week Jon and I pick 3 comics each that we feel should be made into a cable TV series, Animated Series or Big Screen movie.

Jon’s Picks are:

  • Superior Spiderman storyline
  • The Legion of Doom – not based on any comic, just a series from the bad guys perspective.
  • East of West

My picks are:

  • Manhattan Projects
  • Saga
  • Strikeforce: Morituri

We each give a limited overview of the series we are pitching and tell you why it be good for TV or a movie.  We also hope to turn you on to new comics series that you are not reading and/or should pick up in tradepaper back.

What do you think of the picks?  What would you like to see as a series or movie?

Hi all,

Welcome to the 5th Podcast.  First off, I want to apologize for the audio quality on this one.  We are trying out out new equipment and it must have picked up both mics so Jon and I sound like we are broadcasting from underwater.

Here is what we will be reviewing:

  • Trees
  • East of West
  • Manifest Destiny
  • Sons of the Devil
  • Where Monsters Dwell
  • Providence

You will have to listen to the podcast to see who reviews which one:
