This week host Aaron Macom discusses The Babadook and Humble Bundle deals.
Host Aaron Macom returns to talk about The CW’s “The 100.”
Host Derek Coward returns to answer the seemingly simple question “If you were going to create your own comic universe, what kinds of things would you be sure to do?” but as we know nothing is ever that simple.
I am giving away a copy of Revival Vol 1 from Image Comics. I recently bought a copy from a friend, completely forgetting that I also ordered a copy from an online store. In order to get rid of the pristine copy, I am giving it away. I will take all of the correct entries, put them in a pile (digitally speaking), and pick a winner.
To be entered, correctly answer the following question: Mike Norton shares a studio with what fellow comic book creator?

From Youtube: “A brand new short from producer Bruce Timm featuring a lost tale from Batman’s past, the Dark Knight tracks a strange giant to the mysterious lair of Dr. Hugo Strange.”
I’m not as enamored with Batman The Animated Series as some of my friends seem to be, but I think this is pretty cool.
Shawn Taylor over at Nerds of Color has an excerpt from his upcoming book. The excerpt is mainly about Storm, but there are two really great non-Storm portions. The first is an evaluation of Batman and the other is a tangent. Great stuff and I will be keeping an eye out for the book when it comes out.
According to the good folks over at ‘Screen Crush’, Kevin Feige from Marvel Studios said ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’ was almost given an R rating. Their whole article can be found here.
This makes a lot of sense to me. Comic book fans are used to seeing things like Blue Beetle getting his brains shot out through his face, Captain America hitting someone in their face with his shield, or Wolverine snikting people all over the place, non comic book fans aren’t necessarily immune to this type of violent imagery. I’m glad they made the cuts needed because they opened the film to a much larger audience.
I have had these three since they came out but for some reason, I never got around to reading them.
I hadn’t read Savage Dragon until I took a chance on the first Archives Volume. I really dug it, even in B&W, and immediately went out and grabbed the second Volume. It has been a long wait for Volume 3, but I am ready to dive into it.
I have only read/owned one issue of The Invisibles and it didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me, but I keep hearing good things about it from a lot of sources who don’t usually like the same kind of comic books, so I decided to take a chance on it. Morrison rarely lets me down.
Here are a couple of recent additions to the To Read pile. I remember buying the first ten or so issues of the First Comics reprints, but stopped getting them after a while. I liked the series back then so I’m not sure why I stopped getting it, but it was probably cost.
I recently picked up Lone Wolf and Cub Volume One from Dark Horse Comics and thought these were the same things. Not even close because that was just the first First Comics issue in a smaller package. These Omnibus volumes are five issues in one. I will eventually have to get the first one, but there’s no hurry because I already have the stories.
