CM Podcast 212 – The End League

Normally, we would be doing a review of the latest comic related movie this week but Jon and I decided that we were not going to see Dark Phoenix in the theater (we explain why in the podcast) so this week we will be doing a retro review.

We have decided to review the apocalyptic comic, The End League. It is written by Rick Remender with art by Matt Broome. It was published by Dark Horse Comics in 2008 and is collected in trades.

This is a 9 issue series and we review only the first 4 issues. Those 4 issues are collected in a trade called Volume 1: Ballad of Big Nothing.

The story revolves around the last remaining super hero group in a world that is controlled by evil madmen. How did our heroes end up in such a situation? We review why one of the bravest heroes of this world, Astonishman is also one of it’s worst enemies and how his righteous actions condemned the world! Remender and Broome do some great world building in these 4 issues and set the reader up for a ride with heroes that are flawed and villains that are ruthless.

Check out the podcast and then do yourself a favor and check out The End League.

Your comics pal,

CM Podcast 71 – New Comics Review

There are new titles coming out every month so we grab a few and read them and then opine on if they are worth your money or not.

The titles we are reviewing this week are (including the time code):

  • 2:27 – Skybourne
  • 13:58 – 7 to Eternity
  • 27:25 – Rebith: Suicide Squad
  • 41:50 – Britannia

These are 4 different types of comics – 1 is an action adventure title, another is an epic magical western story of revenge, another is a superhero (psychotic) buddy comedy and the last is a horror detective story.  We break them down and let you know which ones to pick up.  Also, you will find out that I cannot say the word “Etruscans” (Ee-Trus-Cans).

Thanks for listening.

Your comics pal,

Jim
