CM Podcast 123 – New Comics Review

There are always new titles being launched and we picked up 3 of these new titles, read them and loved them.

The comics that we are reviewing are:

  1. Mech Cadet Yu #1 and #2 from BOOM! Studios.  It is written by Greg Pak with art by Takeshi Miyazawa.
  2. Ghost Money # 1 from Lion Forge/Magnetic Collection.  It is written by Thierry Smolderen with art by Dominique Bertsil.
  3. Sink #1 from Comix Tribe.  It is written by John Lees with art by Alex Cormack.

These 3 comics are different from each other but are all worth your time.  If you are looking for something familiar and fun then you’ll love Mech Cadet Yu.  If you want something thrilling and abrasive then Ghost Money is what you want to read.  And if you want something that will scare you but also make you think, then go by Sink.

Listen to the podcast to get the full details of all 3 comics and then go right out and support these comics by buying them.

CM Podcast 99 – Ghost in the Shell movie

Comics Misremembered Podcast 99

The live action Ghost in the Shell movie starring Scarlett Johansson recently came out so we decided to do a Movie Face/Off!

Anime Vs Live Action

Jon and I will read the plot for the Anime movie first and then the plot of the Live Action movie.  We will then discuss the merits of each movie and ultimately, let you know which one is the superior movie and why.

In case you have not guessed it, there are major spoilers for both movies in this podcast so fair warning.
