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

CM Podcast 74 – New Comics Review

There are always new titles from comic publishers coming out every week and we try to select some of the best books to read.  Here are some of the comics that we highly recommend.

This week I review the 3 new comics from DC Comic’s Young Animals imprint and Jon reviews 3 independent publisher titles.  Here are the reviews with time stamps:

  • 4:45 – James Bond – Dynamite Comics: Written by Andy Diggle with Art by Luca Casalanguida
  • 16:33 – Cave Carson has a Cybernetic Eye – DC’s Young Animals: Co-written by Gerard Way and Jon Rivera with art by Michael Avon Oeming
  • 28:35 – Briggs Land – Dark Horse Comics: Written by Brian Woods with art by Mack Chater

  • 1:08:40 – Doom Patrol – DC’s Young Animals: Written by Gerard Way with art by Nick Derington

I apologize if we mispronounced any of the writers or artist names.  We will try better next time.

This podcast runs a little longer than our normal ones because there are so many things to talk about with each of these titles.  We hope you enjoy our reviews and find some new comics to pick up.

Also, Will Magnus is the creator of the Metal Men not the Magnetic Man.  My brain was on overload.  Sorry.
