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.”
Lucky number 70, and this is a BIG one! Ben and Josh kick it old school this week with a blockbuster conversation about summer blockbusters… and more!
First up in Top o’ the Pile, we have Amazing Spider-Man #16.1, Thor: God of Thunder #25 and the age old debate over who’s the better butler: Alfred or Jarvis. Then we take it to the small screen with an in-depth (but relatively spoiler-free) look at Daredevil on Netflix.
Finally, we close out the show with a Can o’ Beans that includes Batman, X-Men, and the revelation that Iceman is gay… was gay? Will be gay? Who knows – proving once again, that time travel is way more confusing than gender roles and sexual orientation.
Monte cristo, it’s been a busy few days. Let’s jump into it:
