Josh-less again this episode, we welcome Comic Book Club contributor, Lucas Ewing back to the show to talk comics, cons, and Carter. As usual, we kick things off with Top o’ the Pile, including Preacher, Black Canary/Zatana: Bloodspell and The Wicked + the Divine.
Tangents take us into talk of The Walking Dead spinoff, Gotham, Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye and The Fadeout by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Then we get down to business with Marvel’s Agent Carter and a look ahead to the upcoming convention season.
Whether you’re a long time reader or a newbie like our friend Lucas, you won’t want to miss this star-spangled episode.
With our own reboot just 3 fortnights in the rearview, the boys settle in to dissect Marvel’s Universe-obliterating plans for Secret Wars, Battleworld and beyond. On the D.C. side of the street (soon-to-be side of the country). We brace changes and inevitable slate-wiping in Convergence. Do reboots help sales? Entice new readers? Offer fertile stories? Or just give us something to whine about.
All this, plus a Can o’ Beans that Includes Rick Remender, Howard the Duck and SO much Carnage. Listen now, while this episode is still in-continuity.
Time-travel shenanigans continue as we launch into part 2 of our (don’t call it a) comeback episode. Ben and Dan get the party started with a Chew and pre-New 52 Detective Comics at the Top o’ the Pile. Josh returns from the world’s longest dog walk to join us for TV & Movie talk, including Agent Carter, Gotham and the MASSIVE slate of upcoming films from both Marvel and DC.
All this plus a big ol’ Can o’ Beans to round things out. The Near Mint train is back on the tracks and rolling right along so get onboard!
We’re BAAAAAACK! Rising from the ashes, The Near Mint Comic Show returns – with a new format, a new lineup and a new lease on it’s podcasting life.
