Crisis On Infinite Midlives Show Episode 32: Whistle Pig

CrisisOnInfinideMidlivesPodcastLogo_300x300It is the middle of Labor Day weekend, which means that things are slow in the world of comics news, and fast in the world of drinking whiskey to forget you still have a job to go to on Tuesday.

So Amanda and I use this lull to idly speculate who might be a good casting choice for Doctor Strange in the upcoming Phase 3 Marvel movie. And not only that, but we got ourselves out to see the currently-in-theaters Sin City: A Dame To Kill For adaptation of Frank Miller’s hard boiled crime comics… and we had remarkably different reactions to the flick. Specifically regarding Eva Green’s casting as Ava Lord, Eva Green’s ability to portray Ava Lord, and Eva Green’s qualifications as an actress beyond the ability of some of her bodily appendages to defy constant gravitational forces. We also talk about the other parts of the movie.

We also discuss:

  • All-Star Western #34, written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, with art by Darwyn Cooke, and
  • Silver Surfer #5, written by Dan Slott with pencils by Mike Allred!

And now the disclaimers:

  • We record this show live to tape. While this might mean a somewhat looser comics podcast than you are used to, it also means anything can happen. Like discussions about new supervillain Whistle Pig.
  • This show contains spoilers. While we try to shout out warnings before spilling secrets, be on notice that spoilers can happen at any time.
  • Amanda and I use explicit, adult language, and therefore this show is not safe for work. Before listening without headphones, please see the earlier note about the discussion vis a vis Eva Green’s bodily appendages. Get some headphones.

Arc Reactions – 25 – Quiver

Dylan and John tackle another Kevin Smith story, this time from DC comics. Green Arrow – Quiver is the relaunch of the title and this story does a good job of restarting the story while still tying it to the history of the character. Dylan and I had a great time discussing the elements of this story both good and bad. Enjoy our thoughts on this story.

Valiant Effort Episode 15: The World’s Worst Superhero Team

Let’s read the first volume of Quantum and Woody and explore some of Valiant’s lighter fare.  Or is it?  We argue that this is some of the deepest work Valiant has put out to date, just with jokes.  So get your headphones and listen to us laugh our way through some serious conversation. Meh!
