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

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,

Jim

CM Podcast 10 – It’s the Eisner Awards

San Diego is a hot bed of excitement this week because it’s the International Comic Con AKA the San Diego Comic Con.  For those not in the know, The San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) is like the Mecca of all Geekdom.  It is where you will hear and see exclusive content of upcoming big name movies, TV shows, comics and much, much more!

One of the many celebrations at the SDCC is the prestigious Will Eisner Awards.  This is were the comic community celebrates the most outstanding work of writers and artists in their field of work.

Jon and I review some of the categories and discuss who was picked and go over what we think of the books and creative teams.  We don’t cover all of the categories but if you would like to see them all go here:  http://www.comic-con.org/awards/2015-eisner-award-nominations

We had some technical difficulties recording this week so I broke the podcast into 2 parts.  I will post part 1 tonight and then work on posting part 2 on Wednesday or Thursday.

Some of the highlights of parts 1 and 2:

  • Jon and I butcher a bunch of peoples names
  • Jon waxes poetic on Pogo
  • You hear my spot on impersonation of Hulk Hogan and Randy “Macho Man” Savage
  • Both of us confuse the word Sega for the word Saga (a lot)
  • I sing some comics titles
  • And much more…

CM Podcast 8 – Heroes – in your livingroom!

Hello and welcome back to another CM Podcast, faithful listeners.

This week Jon and I pick 3 comics each that we feel should be made into a cable TV series, Animated Series or Big Screen movie.

Jon’s Picks are:

  • Superior Spiderman storyline
  • The Legion of Doom – not based on any comic, just a series from the bad guys perspective.
  • East of West

My picks are:

  • Manhattan Projects
  • Saga
  • Strikeforce: Morituri

We each give a limited overview of the series we are pitching and tell you why it be good for TV or a movie.  We also hope to turn you on to new comics series that you are not reading and/or should pick up in tradepaper back.

What do you think of the picks?  What would you like to see as a series or movie?
