Host Derek Coward talks in depth about the comic books on his wishlist from the upcoming DC Reboot and spends the last few minutes of the podcast talking about the titles and characters he is surprised aren’t part of the reboot.
This episode is in a time warp! It’s night, it’s morning, it’s night in the car…. Oy. After a sloppy rundown of the week’s new releases we get to the good stuff: Steve calls in to tell us about a Gary Frank-penciled Sabretooth (?!?) and a Marvel/DC crossover, Adam Unbounds 2007’s Sub-Mariner, Carlos leaves a voicemail in regards to New Avengers #41, Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men #1, and Nova #13; and Pat gets us up to speed on Secret Invasion tie-ins Ms. Marvel #27, Incredible Hercules #116, and New Avengers #41 all while giving his thoughts on what tie-ins are worth your while.
All this plus Marvel Tales! And a phone call from… Bob ?!?
Comics mentioned in this episode include Wolverine: Dangerous Games, Amazing Spider-Man, Cable, Invincible Iron Man, Criminal, Secret Invasion, Thor, Ultimate Origins, and Young X-Men.
