CM Podcast 166 – 2018 Eisner Awards

Eisner2018

Last week was the San Diego Comic Con where they held the 2018 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards.  So this week, Jon and I will be doing a review of the nominees and winners of some of the categories from the:

2018 Eisner Awards

Or as I like to call the podcast:

2 Ignorant Clods Butcher Names and Talk About Comics They Didn’t Read (For The Most Part).

Jon and I recognized a few of the creators and titles up for awards this year like: Monstress, Black Hammer and Hellboy.

Congratulations on all the winners and please don’t be too angry at us if we pronounced your name wrong.  We will do better next year so keep up the good work!

Jon also goes over the 2 DC Movie Universe trailers that dropped: Aquaman and Shazam.

Your Comics Pal,

Jim

Another San Diego Comic Con and another Eisner Awards show.  Jon and I will be reviewing the 2016 nominees and winners for most of the Eisner categories.

The Eisners always have some stiff competition and this year’s contenders were some heavy hitters.  I agree with most of the winners, especially Paper Girls!

We read the nominees, give our options on the lists (if we have any) and discuss the winners.  Some of the titles that were nominated and won were some of our picks in previous podcast so go through our site and listen to our old podcasts.  We will give you insight to future Eisner winners!

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,
