Marvel Noise Episode 43

July 31, 2008 / No Comments

1959

Welcome to the ‘no-frills’ edition of Marvel Noise. After the host says “hello”, we get Bring ‘em Back, the Mighty Marvel Movie Minute, a gem from the Comic Book Bunker rises to the surface, Marvel Unbound, and pirated edition of Marvel Tales.

I want to thank everyone for sending in contributions. It’s been a rough and tough summer and Dave, Mike, Adam, Steve, Pat, Carlos, and Chris have been great friends and the show would not be the same without ‘em.

Providing the universe isn’t plotting against me, next week should be somewhat of a ‘normal’ show, if there ever was one.

Get it here.

June 4, 2008 / No Comments

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.

The epic saga of the God of Thunder continues as the Marvel Masterworks present another volume of Mighty Thor masterpieces by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby!

Meanwhile, in the darkened depths, a threat greater than any Thor has ever before faced rises when the malignant Mangog threatens to unsheathe the Odinsword and bring Ragnarok upon the Norse gods. It’s a tale considered by many to be Lee and Kirby’s most-pulse pounding Asgardian epic. Need we say more?
We do! Because with Stan and Jack, there’s always more amazing revelations around the corner. Like the startling secret hidden from Donald Blake, and a galaxy-spanning adventure that includes the origin of Galactus and a melee that pits Thor and Ego the Living Planet up against the infamous world devourer!

“GOD AND COUNTRY,” PART 4
In the age of the Superhuman Registration Act, the only good hero is one that plays by the book — which the card-carrying Moon Knight most assuredly does not. Indeed, with Moon Knight fast becoming the poster child for recklessness and brutality, the question of the day is just how he got a Registration Card in the first place! As Tony Stark’s investigation unearths the ugly truth, Marc Spector braces himself for the consequences, unaware that an equally grave threat is preparing to strike. Carson Knowles — a.k.a. the Black Spectre — is back and he wants payback.

What buttons can Frank possibly push that pushes Jigsaw over the edge of sanity? Find out straight from the horse’s mouth, kiddies: JIGSAW starts here, ends in blood, and features a whole lot of violence in-between.
