Mike, Micah and Bill discuss Spartacus and the biggest bitch on the show, Modern Family, Parent Hood and Human Target. We then talk briefly about some movies like Moon, Hot Tub Time Machine, and How to Train your Dragon. Then a marathon of comic book talk to discuss Ultimate X, Pluto, Blackjack, Tiny Titans, Justice League books and the state of Green Arrow, The Shield, First Wave, The Unwritten, Robin 3000, Bayou, and Kick Ass. Plus much much more. We top it off with Sardines.
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 on Teenage Wasteland…
J. Michael Straczynski is set to take on both Wonder Woman and the Man of Steel, and I find it interesting. Plus, a small observation on comic sales and the direct market and a run down of reviews on plenty of Number 1 issues. And, last but not least, Mr. Sandquist stops by to talk all things Sam Kieth.
Ultimate X #1
