CM Podcast 283 – Black Badge (2018 comic)

Jon is back! Jon joins us remotely for this week’s CM Podcast. As Jon explains in the podcast, he is currently in the hospital for cancer. This is a new complication that Jon found out about within the last few day. He is in one of the greatest hospitals for cancer and is being treated by some of the best doctors so it is my hope that Jon will return in person to co-host the podcast with me in the near future.

But you know Jon, he is too stubborn to let anything stop him from talking about comics so through the power of technology, I was able to get him included in the discussion on this week’s comic, Black Badge.

Black Badge is written by Matt Kindt (MIND MGMT, Grass Kings) and artist Tyler Jenkins (Snow Blind and Grass Kings). It was published by BOOM! Studios back in 2018 as a 12 issue limited series.

I had the opportunity to read the collection for the first 4 issues. Jon has not been able to read this comic yet so I describe the book to him (mostly spoiler free) and Jon makes the decision if he will be reading this comic in the future.

I loved the concept – Boy Scouts are recruited to run wet work/black ops jobs for the US government. It is full of cold war espionage but with a modern twist. I thought it was a great comic and plan to get the rest of the series.
