Another week, another show, but this time we’re minus one podcaster as Steve steps out. This week’s topic comes from the speech that Image Comics publisher Eric Stephenson said at a ComicsPRO meeting upon accepting an award. We discuss what his comments imply, what they mean, our thoughts on them and the reactions from Dark Horse’s Mike Richardson and IDW’s Ted Adams.

In the first half of the show, we talk news in the world like the talks about Wonder Woman’s movie costume, Skottie Young’s Rocket Raccoon, Batman: Arkham Knight, Paul Levitz heading over to Boom Studios and Lena Dunham upcoming Archie mini-series.

And then, because we’re creatures of habit, we discuss our favourite books from the last week. Some of those books include: Royals: Masters of War, The Wake, Mighty Avengers, Lois Lane, Fantastic Four and more.

Annnnnnnnnnd… we say it on the show, but just in case you missed it, the Talking Comics crew on Twitter are:

Bobby: @bobbyshortle
Steve: @dead_anchoress
Stephanie: @hellocookie
And Bob’s email is bobreyer@talkingcomicbooks.com

FYI: the crew have gone all superhero on the world, thanks to the wonderful Hanie Mohd. Like them? Make sure to follow her and let us know what you think of our new superhero pictures.


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 (Misfortune Cookie) and Steve Seigh (JoBlo.com contributor) who weekly dissect the releases and give you, the consumer, a simple Roman yay or nay regarding them. Our Twitter handle is @TalkingComics and you can email us at info@talkingcomicbooks.com.

Stephanie is [obviously] a comic book fan, but she also considers herself an avid gamer, movie watcher, lover of music, board games fan (although she doesn’t find nearly enough time for them…) and being snarky. Oh, and Twitter. Twitter’s a hobby, right?…

What's your reaction?
