One of the reasons that we started Talking Comics and continue to do Talking Comics is to host amazing events that hopefully help change the way the world looks at things. This week on the site, we’re hosting the LSE Comics, Human Rights and Representation Week that was organized by the wonderful Maria Norris (go follow her on Twitter… right now!). Maria joins us on the second half of the show to discuss some of the issues at hand, how we can work at fixing them and more. She explains why this event is so important to her and why it should also be important to all of you.

In the first half of the show, there is some banter (as per usual) and lots of talk about comics like during our Group Book of the Week which, for this week, is The Dead and The Dying #1 by Jonathan Hickman and Ryan Bodenheim.

Then there are the…

Lightning Round: Children of the Sea, Sidekicks, The Reason for Dragons, Nightcrawler, Uncanny X-Men, Harley Quinn, Bitch Planet, Batman and more.

Books of the Week: Birthright, IXth Generation, Multiversity Guidebook, Gotham Academy.



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

Bobby: @bobbyshortle
Stephanie: @hellocookie
Steve: @dead_anchoress
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 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?
