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!
The Near Mint Comic Show is back and that’s not trick. Treat yourself to 3+ hours of spine-tingling comic talk with your favorite undead duo – Ben & Josh! We eclipse our 5-year-anniversary mark, with talk of halloween costumes, cult horror films and our favorite spooky comics, including Locke & Key, Revival andThe Walking Dead.
As this spooktacular show unfolds, Josh recaps Darwyn Cooke’s The New Frontier, Ben decrees a new greatest comic book movie of all time and our horrifying heroes are bewitched by DC continuity and Marvel marketing. All that plus Star Wars, Scott Snyder, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and much much more
Dark secrets will come to light. How did Josh end up buying 20+ DC books. What is Ben’s creepy confession that’s too geeky to reveal in this episode summary?
And what part of the Near Mintiverse will be brought back from the dead? Listen and find out. Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes, the dead rising from the grave, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria – and it’s all right here for your listening pleasure!
