There have been a lot of good comics to come out lately so Jon and I have decided to do another New Comics Review Podcast.
We will be reviewing 3 new comics. These books have come out within the last 3 weeks so you should still be able to get them at your local comic shop (highly recommended) or download it digitally (if you must). I will tell you up front that all 3 comics are worth buying and we hope to convey through the podcast why each one is great.
The 3 titles we will be reviewing (in the order we review them in the podcast):
Gideon Falls #1 written by Jeff Lemire with art by Andrea Sorrentino (Image Comics)
Dry County #1 written and illustrated by Rick Tommaso (Image Comics)
Highest House #1 written by Mike Carey with art by Peter Gross (IDW Publishing)
Listen to the podcast then rush out and pick up these 3 books.
We have a guest in the studio with us this week: Kevin Glennon. He is was a big fan of the G. I. Joe: Real American Hero comic as a kid and fan of our show. He asked if he could come on and talk about the comic series.
I am also a big fan of Larry Hama’s series and agreed to do an all G. I. Joe: RAH podcast this week. Jon, Kevin and I talk about the history of the series, the stories we (mis)remember as kids and what is going on with that comic today.
If you have never read the G. I. Joe comic – you are missing out on one of the greatest war comics ever made. We hope that you listen to the podcast and run out and buy the newest issue like we do every month.
Also, Kevin Glennon is an accomplished author and has published a book called:
