CM Podcast 57 – DC Rebirth Reviews

DC is going through some ch-ch-changes with their books by relaunching all their titles with one-shots.  Jon and I have read some of these books and we will tell you if they are worth you money.

We decided to review books that we did not read prior to the Rebirth to see if we would be interested in reading them after the reboot.  Here are the books and the time code on the recording:

  1. Aquaman               13:15
  2. Wonder Woman  23:00
  3. Titans                     28:00
  4. Green Arrow        38:45

We are both optimistic about the rebirth event and look forward to the new books coming out over the summer.

Your comics pal,

Jim

CM Podcast 40 – Marvel’s Standoff and more!

Another week.  Another podcast.

This week is something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.  The Old is that we are reviewing Marvel’s 2007 Civil War miniseries.  The New is the brand new Marvel’s Standoff: Welcome to Pleasant Hill comic that came out.  The Borrowed is that Standoff will lead into Civil War II which is a retread of Civil War.  Finally, The Blue is the blue curtain that holds back the new DC Comics Rebirth and it is not going to be fun.

Part 1: Civil War

Jon and I go over the 2007 Civil War miniseries – How a group of careless heroes’ prime time TV adventure leads to one of the biggest atrocities in the Marvel universe.  This event triggers government action and starts the Super Hero Registration Act.  Heroes choose sides: to register and work for the government or rebel and protect your own free liberties.  It is a great story and we are looking forward to the movie.

Then we move on to Part 2…

Avengers: Standoff – Welcome to Pleasant Hill.

We both liked this stand alone comic and the surprises that it holds so instead of spoiling any of the stories, Jon and I talk about 2 TV shows that are similar in concept and theme to the comic.

Finally, we move on to part 3…

DC’s Rebirth – We dislike Rebirth.  I mean, we really, really don’t like this.  This project is so unnecessary and we both feel DC will turn off many long time fans of their comics.  This will be the beginning of Reboot Blow Back.  This is bad for comics and we explain why.

 

That is all for now.  Thanks for listening.

Your comics pal,
