Issue #130: Internet Bullys and Controversial Covers | Comic Book Podcast
It’s an all-new issue of the Talking Comics… Yeaaaah! Steve is visiting the great white north, so he steps out (Canada never stops Stephanie though…) and Justin Townson fills his snowy galoshes for the week.
Bobby introduces a new segment to the show this week, which we will tentatively and possibly permanently title the Lightning Round. These are the books that we talk about a LOT but don’t want to just brush off to the side just because we talk about them so much. Make sense? Each of your hosts have 3-minutes to quickly talk about all the other books that don’t fall under their be all and end all Books of the Week for this week. For the first beta test of this segment, some of the books discussed are: All-New X-Factor, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, D4VE, Hulk, Cleopatra in Space, Black Canary and Zatanna: Bloodspell, Solar: Man of the Atom All-New Ghost Rider, Sinestro and Batman.
And then for our regular Book of the Week segment, the gang bring up some fancy comics like: Dakota North, Adventures of Superman #50, Captain Action Cat, The Adventures of Business Cat, Transformers: Windblade, Superior Spider-Man, Joyners in 3D, Nowhere Men, Batman Eternal and more.
For the main part of the show, there’s no specific topic but we have another week of listener questions. Ha cha cha! We’ve been taking the majority of the questions directly from the forum (if you’re not signed up there, you should be!) but we went to Twitter and Facebook and answer as many of the questions you submitted as possible. PHEW!
Annnnnnnnnnd… we say it on the show, but just in case you missed it, the Talking Comics crew on Twitter are:
