CM Podcast 93 – Disappointing Comics

Has this ever happened to you: There is a major announcement about a writer/artist/character that really excites you but when you get the final product and finish reading it, you are left wanting?

Well, it has happened to Jon and myself a few times.  This week, we recount 3 comics that we were psyched about reading but at the end of the day, we were disappointed.

Jon will cover 2 miniseries and I will do 1.  Here are the books we will be talking about:

From left to right:

  • Death of Wolverine
  • Final Crisis
  • Wolverine: Origin

Why did these comics that had all the right ingredients turn out so badly?  We will give you the answers.

We will be back next week with a review of the movie, Logan.

Your comics pal,

Jim

CM Podcast 54: X-men Apocalypse Movie Review

It’s the beginning of the Summer Movie push.   Captain America: Civil War came out and was spectacular.  The next major comic franchise is X-men Apocalypse and it is…good?  Good.  It’s good.  I can confidently say it is a good movie.

Why is it good and not great?  Well, we review the pros and cons of the movie in the podcast.  We also give a quick history of Apocalypse in the Marvel Comic Universe and is he the same character in the Fox Movie Universe.

**Major Spoilers Ahead**

In order for Jon and myself to give you an informed opinion about the movie and why we only think it’s good, we have to talk about the plot and characters so this is your warning.  There are many spoilers in this podcast.

Thanks for listening and see you next week,

Your Comics Pal,

Jim
