Host Derek Coward talks about Daredevil 1, Flashpoint: Legion of Doom, Supergod 5, unnecessary ultraviolence and hypersexuality in comic books.
Ultimate X #1 (Marvel) – This is the second printing because I forgot to have it added to my pull list when it came out. Really cool Art Adams cover. I hope it has something to do with the inside story.
Fall of The Hulks: Red Hulk #3 (Marvel) – Yeah, it’s not really the type of book I pick up, but that Jeff Parker guy is pretty good and the whole Hulk writing staff has sucked me in with the mystery of Red Hulk.
Millar & McNiven’s Nemesis #1 (Marvel) – I originally wasn’t going to get it, but why not. However, the main character looks a lot like Sentry from Hero Alliance without a color scheme. I’m looking forward to it because I am thinking a lot of people will disregard it as racist, sexist, homophobic junk and I would rather read it for myself.
Supergod #3 (Avatar) – I like this series. I don’t know if Warren Ellis is going to continue it after it is done, but part of me hopes he gives it a definite ending and leaves it at that.
Weird that I got more Marvel than anything else, but to be honest, Red Hulk and Nemesis were grabbed off of the shelf.
This week is a special week as I am joined by listener and friend Jeff Sandquist. Jeff usually writes an e-mail to share his thoughts, but this week I thought I would give him the option of the microphone. What is discussed? Everything Jeff is reading: books from IDW, Avatar and other assorted publishers. Plus, a little conversation on Jeff’s career as a comic book fan, and a quick tangent on the Avatar movie.
Check it out; Jeff is a voice to like.
