Marvel Noise Episode 34

There’s a little bit of everything this week. Our host gushes about the Iron Man movie, Jeff Parker, Annihilation and it’s Conquest. Marcos Martin and David Lapham also get talked up. Backwards Dave brings us another Bring ’em Back, Mike Sims casts another film in his Mighty Marvel Movie Minute, and Carlos calls not once, but twice! For those of you not up-to-date on Secret Invasion (as of the mini’s second issue) may want to skip ahead a minute or two. Marvel Tales goes recounts a dark day in X-Men history (where I’m concerned) and finally, Adam Besenyodi (earth616) offers a wonderful review of Powers.

Comics mentioned in this episode include Guardians of the Galaxy, newuniversal: Shockfront, Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four, Wolverine, Wolverine: The Amazing Immortal Man and Other Bloody Tales, and X-Men: Legacy.
