The best things in life are free – and this podcast is no exception! This week, we geek out over Free Comic Book Day, Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Eisner Awards, Herb Trimpe and much, much more.
First up in Top o’ the Pile, we talk about Essex County, Uncanny X-Men, and Josh’s refusal to read comics. then it’s off to our local comic shop to take in the sights, sounds and smells of Free Comic Book Day.
Dan and Ben assemble for a (mostly spoiler-free) review of Avengers: Age of Ultron that gives props to big action and breakout characters. Dan chimes in on last week’s Daredevil conversation. We run down some of the recent Eisner Award nominations and make our (no doubt completely wrong) picks to win.
Can o’ Beans closes out the show with promises to read She-Hulk, FCBD comics and, well… anything in Josh’s case. It’s an action-packed, over-stuffed episode that you won’t want to miss, “but you don’t have to take my word for it.”
