Travis and I got together to discuss the #SaveRachelRising effort, and then the first three issues (and the Justice League tie-ins) of DC’s current event book, Forever Evil.

Podcast Episode 36: A Conversation With Fukudometown

I interview the author of the first iTunes review for the LBR podcast, Fukudometown, aka, Mike. We talk about his comic reading experiences, attending cons, a dash of Star Trek, et al, and then we talk about Batman & Robin, Mind the Gap, and Revival, with recommendations from me for Mike to read Daredevil and the totally awesome Danger Club!

Note: There were some issues with Skype the day that Mike and I recorded, so there is some static and a clicking noise through most of the show. However, it was a really good conversation, so please listen in as two fans geek out about their love of comics.

What I’m looking forward to on New Comics Wednesday!

Just in the nick of time, here’s a quick look at some titles out today that I’m looking forward to reading.

CAPTAIN MARVEL #2: I enjoyed issue one well enough, despite the art. I’m interested to see where DeConnick takes us with Carol.

DAREDEVIL #17: Always a great read. I just found out that Chris Samnee (it’s pronounced Sahm-nee, kids–I just found that out today, too) is the new ongoing artist since Paolo Rivera has moved on to new things (which is too bad–no knock against Samnee, I just prefer Rivera’s work on DD).

EXTERMINATION #3: This title is on the bubble for me, but it improved from issue 1 to issue 2, so I hope that trend continues.

HARBINGER #3: This is a new addition to my Pull List (thanks Lee!).

MICHAEL AVON OEMING’S THE VICTORIES #1: So looking forward to reading this, despite the fact that the official title includes the creator’s name. :D

REVIVAL #2: Issue 1 started out strong and I hope the sophomore issue continues that.

SAGA #6: Again, just because it’s soooo good.

SHADE #11: Ditto. And Frazer Irving’s art.

WONDER WOMAN #12: I hear there’s a cool surprise at the end. Don’t spoil it for me Internet!

What I’m looking forward to on New Comics Wednesday!

AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #9: What? A Marvel book in my Looking Forward To list? Yeah. Why? The new Captain Marvel makes her first appearance (even though it’s technically after her appearance in her ongoing title, out the following week).

BATMAN #11: Despite the disappointing reveal of the long-lost brother from last issue, I am looking forward to seeing how Night of Owls will end, in this book anyway.

BEFORE WATCHMEN: MINUTEMEN #2: Umm, because #1 was so awesome!

FANTASTIC FOUR ANNUAL #33: This is the beginning of the Alan Davis written and drawn series of Marvel annuals. They had me at Alan Davis….

REVIVAL #1: I initially wrote this off as yet another zombie story, but the interview with the creators on the Word Balloon podcast changed my mind.

SHADE #10: I love this series in general, but I get more Frazer Irving art this issue!
