Ep. 076 “Of Heroes and Homewreckers”

Dan and Josh forge bravely into uncharted waters with the first Ben-less episode in Near Mint Comic Show history. First, up in Top o’ the Pile, we talk about The Walking Dead and Old Man Logan, segueing, once again into a discussion on diversity.

With San Diego Comic-Con recently in the rearview, we talk about new movie trailers, upcoming films, and comics news, including ROM the Space Night, Micronauts, new books from Vertigo and of course, Street Fighter vs. G.I.Joe.

There’s more Marvel movie talk, as we preview our upcoming Marvel movie countdown special before wrapping things up with a Can o’ Beans. Ben is barely missed, as Dan and Josh keep the Near Mint banner flying high and do so in super-heroic fashion.

Episode 016 – “Crack Economics”

P7240018We’ve been off for a month but we’re back with a vengeance! In this episode, we open up with some San Diego Comic Con news and a good hearty bitch session about the onslaught of titles in this month’s Marvel Previews.

Then we get to some comic talk, where replacement heroes, Bucky-Cap and the Dick Knight make us think about character evolution. And what do you do when you characters get to old to be human? A hidden bombshell in Captain America #600 sparks a wave of continuity questions.

Finally, we wrap things off with a longbox-load of comic talk including Avengers Invaders, Dark Reign: Mr. Negative & Sinister Spider, Ultimatum and the Ultimate Comics relaunch, Wednesday Comics, Batman, Green Lantern, Chew, Viking and more – It’s too much for you to handle!
