Don’t fret and don’t frown, Talking Comics is back for another week… albeit a bit delayed, but here for your listening pleasure nonetheless. As you probably know, yesterday was Independence Day and unfortunately due to that and a few other life-ish circumstances, we were delayed in bringing you our regular quirky banter. But we’re here now and that’s all that matters, right?

The weekly constant is our Book of the Week and after a little chitchat, things get going. After talking AvX and Before Watchmen’s latest turd, Bobby starts things off with Batman: Earth One. Steve then professes his love for Batman: The Dark Knight #10. Stephanie raves about a web comic, Sarah and the Seed (which you can check out by clicking here) and Bob rounds out the discussion with World’s Finest #3.

This week’s topic is the hottest movie in theatres right now and that’s The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield and the too-cute-for-life Emma Stone. What does the gang think of it? Love it or hate it, I can tell you this: we all love Emma Stone EVEN MORE by the end of it. What do YOU think of The Amazing Spider-Man? Leave us your comments on the film below!

I promise you that if you haven’t seen this video yet, you need to watch it. WARNING: It WILL make you fall in love with Emma Stone.
Scratch the podcast… let’s all just look at photos and videos of Emma Stone…

    I’ve officially cut Before Watchmen from my pull list. I hate to say it, but to quote Stephanie, I just find the whole thing “unnecessary.” Bobby’s comment this week about not seeing the genesis of these characters is 100% accurate. In all the books so far, I’ve felt as though the individual writers are just taking the basic principals of each character and applying them to some situation that happened before Alan Moore’s book. It some ways Before Watchmen just feels like a continuation of Moore’s characters as they were established in Watchmen. Why do I need to be reading this?

    Also to Steve’s comment about being tired of seeing bullied kids in these origin stories, I’d also like to throw in lousy parents as well. Both Night Owl and Silk Spectre’s Before Watchmen stories are guilty not only off the bullied kids scenario, but the lousy parents one as well.

    Comedian has been my favorite Before Watchmen book so far, followed by Ozymandias, mainly due to the art of Jae Lee. I’ve decided to cut the individual issues and just wait for the trades, hoping that bundled together these stories add a little more necessity to the lore than the individual issues are failing to do.
