CM Podcast 169 – Boston Comic Con 2018

This year, the Boston Comic Con officially changed it’s name to Fan Expo Boston 2018 but I will always call it Boston Comic Con.

It was was held at the South Boston Convention Center (SBCC) for the 2nd year in a row and I hope it stays there going forward.

Fan Expo was going big on the celebrities this year with features like: Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Billy Dee Williams, Evangeline Lilly and many more.

I was not interested in those celebrities.  Our main draw were the comic creators.  They had John Byrne, Jim Lee, Tom King, J. Scott Campell and many more.

Jon and I spent last Sunday there.  We let you know who we met and what we saw…

Your comics pal,

CM Podcast 142 – Milk Wars Specials

There is a war going on in comics and it isn’t Secret.  It’s not necessarily a Crisis either.  But it is a war that is being waged with dairy products.  It will be known as The Milk Wars (we mistakenly call it the Milkman Wars in the podcast).

The Milk Wars are a cross comic event between DC’s Young Animals imprint and the New 52Gerard Way (Doom Patrol) and Steve Orlando (Justice League of America) are the creators of this event. There will be 5 one shot comics that will be released in February 2018 that support it.

The first salvo in the Milk Wars is The Doom Patrol/Justice League of America one shot.  It is written by Gerard Way and Steve Orlando and the art was supplied by ACO.  Cover by Frank Quitely.

We give a review of this issue in the podcast along with Part 2: Mother Panic/Batman Special written by Jody Houser with art by Ty Templeton.

The war has just started and we are very excited about it.  Now is a great time to hop on board the Young Animals brand of comics and read something that is more than super heroes comics.

Your comics pal,

Jim
