CM Podcast 113 – 2017 Eisner Awards

It is another San Diego Comics Con so that means another round of Eisner Awards.  Jon and I love the Eisners because it nominates that best of the best from the comic industry for categories like Best Writer, Best Artist, Best New Series, Best Ongoing series and more.

The award show spotlights comics that you are probably reading and some that were over looked last year.  The nominees always makes for great material for a podcast.

Many comics nominated for Eisners were reviewed by us as comics that you should be reading like Saga, Paper Girls, Kill or Be Killed and Vision.  There were also some comics that we have read but have not talked about on the podcast yet like Clean Room and Black Hammer.  We are looking forward to giving a more in depth review for those.

Great discussion this week.  Looking forward to next years crop of comics.

Your Comics Pal,

Jim

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,
