CM Podcast 205 – Detective Comics #1000 Review

Welcome back to the podcast! We have been covering comic movies that had been coming out over the last few weeks that we had to put this review on the back burner.

There is a 1 week delay before the next big comic movie (more on that next week) so this week we review a landmark comic event – the publication of the 2nd comic to hit 1000 issues!! The comic that gave DC it’s name – Detective Comics had it’s #1000 issue published a few weeks ago and we go over it in this week’s podcast.

Here are a few of the many variant covers. Starting in the upper left corner going clockwise: Alex Ross, Paul Dini, Frank Miller and Brian Bolland.

Similar to Action Comics #1000, the comic is a celebration of Batman and his extended family. The oversized comic has multiple stories by Batman writers past and present like Scott Snyder, Tom King, Dennis O’Neil, Warren Ellis, current scribe Peter Tomasi and more! We review some of our favorite stories from this issue.

This is also a great jumping on point for any new readers that have never read a Batman story before. The stories review Bruce Wayne/Batman’s past and his relationship with the Bat Family and villains. The comic ends with the introduction of a brand new villain, The Arkham Knight.

We highly recommend you pick this up.

Your comics pal,

Jim

Jon and I recently came across the show bible and read a few passages and then started to reminisce about the show.  Since it’s the 25th anniversary, we could not think of a better time to talk about this ground breaking show and it’s vision of Batman.

Join us as we reflect upon the show and characters and compare it to today’s movies.

CM Podcast 65 – Suicide Squad Movie Review

Welcome back!

We do give our opinions on the recently released DC Movie – Suicide Squad but before we do that, I give my impressions on this year’s #BostonComicCon.

BCC

0:00 – 17:15: Boston Comic Con Talk

Jon was not able to make the Con this year but I had a great time.  I was able to meet Mark Waid, Cliff Chaing, Geof Darrow, Rafael Albuquerque, Terry Dodson, Art Adams and more!!  I do a quick recap and review some of the swag I picked up.

Now let’s move on the the other part of the Podcast…

17:15 – 1:05:00: Suicide Squad and Assult on Arkham

We each give our review of the Suicide Squad movie – The Good, The Bad and The Joker.

SScomic

“Here is a picture of the original Suicide Squad as it debuted in the comics back in 1987”

SSmovie

“Here is a picture of the Suicide Squad from the movie – for better or worse”

After a good skewering of the film, we compare it to the very excellent Suicide Squad Animated movie – Assault on Arkham.

“The Assault on Arkham Squad – a step between the comic and the movie.”

That’s all folks.  Thanks for listening.
