Issue#39: Marvel NOW! | Podcast Download Directly From iTunes Feedburner Link Another week and another Talking Comics podcast is here to fill your ear holes with joy. This week we tackle a few very important questions to shock and delight you. Bob, Bobby and Steve are joined by Tor Comics’ own Rob (or @dusk1020) to give you the skinny on Marvel NOW and whether it’s a genius move or a warning sign of creative bankruptcy. The team also dissects the new creative teams, the new books and what it could all mean for Marvel going forward. As for the rest of the show, the gang of course talk their Books of the Week which include Batman Inc, Wild Children, Revival #1, Monkeyman and O’Brien and Greg Rucka’s Queen and Country. The gang also buckles down to discuss Rob’s hatred of Batman: Earth One and our love of Chris Roberson’s awesome MonkeyBrain digital comics initiative. The Comic Book Podcast is brought to you by Talking Comics (www.talkingcomicbooks.com), a blog dedicated to covering the latest and greatest in comic book releases. The editorial staff is composed of Editor-in-Chief Bobby Shortle (Fanboy Remix, Doctor Whocast), Stephanie Cooke (JoBlo.com’s Digital Dorm) and Steve Seigh (JoBlo.com contributor) who weekly dissect the releases and give you, the consumer, a simple Roman yay or nay regarding them.

Until next issue … to be continued! 2 Responses JD July 11, 2012 Steve, really great idea on how to store comics. Grouping several comics together in one Silver Age-sized bag is so obvious it’s brilliant. I plan to divide a majority of my collection into story arcs and start grouping comics together that way. Am I the only one that dislikes that Uncanny Avengers cover? I keep seeing praise for this cover all over the web but all I see is a bad Saturday morning cartoon show.

It’s saved me money and it is rather cool to group everything into arcs. It keeps thing nice and neat. It’s a bit of a bitch moving things around as you collect more but if you really love comics I don’t think you’ll see it as much of a problem. As far as the cover. I don’t dislike it, but I wouldn’t say that I’m crazy about it either. What I am excited about is the team that they’ve put together so that’s enough for me.
