Just like that, 2015 has shrunk in between the atoms, never to be seen again! In its place stands 2016, which also happens to be the 10th year of Comic Timing.

The crew of four go over Secret Wars and Convergence, some of their favorite comics and comic related media of this past year, and some things that are older than that but were discovered in 2015. There’s also a decent amount of Star Wars talk to be had, including everyone’s (except for Jim who hasn’t seen it yet) overall impressions of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Plus, random segues into talking about meatloaf the food, Meatloaf the singer, and Fuller House. And, shock of shocks, we mention Fant4stic. It’s a grand old time, I tells ya! WHATISH!

Wayne’s Comics Podcast #213 With Brahm Revel From ‘Guerillas’

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, Guerillas, gorilla, Goliath, Adolf, Brahm Revel, Oni Press, Leakey, Pepe, Goblin, John Bull, Faben, Dr. Worzle, Jackson Publick, Venture Bros.,  Vietnam, 1970s, John Francis Clayton

I always go to my local comics shop looking for a great story! This week, during episode 213, I talk with Brahm Revel, creator of a series of graphic novels from Oni Press called Guerillas, which is an all-time favorite of mine! The third volume is scheduled for release in May, so I appreciated the chance to discuss these books with Brahm, including where the idea for this series came from, who the characters are, and what we can expect  from the third book. You’ll also want to listen because Brahm has a special announcement about the future of Guerillas, one that, if you’re a fan like me, you won’t want to miss! Be sure to listen to this great interview about a terrific comic you should be reading if you haven’t picked it up already! Really!

TMG_Cast-Comics Podcasting on the Edge of Civility-Episode #226-“Terrigen Mist: Now with LIME!”

 

Tech yaps for a while about a haul of epic proportions from Midtown Comics. We watch ICEMAN, which is essentially Encino Man for the martial arts set. Rev rambles incessantly about the shows name, since he’s an idiot. Then Tech talks about Cinema Sins “Everything Wrong with Star Wars” featuring the unfunny and no longer relevant Kevin Smith(look forward to TechJedi Rebutting it all with “SINNING THE SINS: Sinning Cinema Sins Sins”.

Anyway.  We start September’s Marvels with the disappointing, and oddball Future Imperfect 5. Wishing wells. Jaysis. THORS 3 is even less interesting, as the mystery kinda deepens, Loki gets interrogated and eventually points them to the real killer. SILVER SURFER 14 Dawn and the Surfer recreate things, but with a severe lack of complete knowledge, created flaws, and make and unmake Galactus. SILK 7 features the Incursion coming just as JJJ reveals a lead on Silk’s brother-which she can only take advantage of as the universe literally dies. HAWKEYE 5 brings us childhood ethics, carnival crime, and probably the best Swordsman characterization put to paper yet. CAPTAIN AMERICA WHITE, 0,1,2; Although just a minor origin retelling and a visit to the first mission with The Howling Commandos, it really reaches down and gives us what we expect from the Loeb Sale Color Series. MS. Marvel 18 Aamir gets powers he doesn’t want but takes advantage of anyway to defend against Kamran. Aamir is a great character as his real strength comes through-his contentment in self and dedication to others. CAROL CORPS 4-The less said the better. A-FORCE 4 culminates in a giant Loki rock creature fight, and zombies. Yippee. RUNAWAYS 4 ends the fight from last issue, the revelation to the rest of the school as to the Trial’s true nature, and everyone walks away properly fan fiction shipped.

Critiquing Comics #084: Bayne: Legacy Apocalypse

Bayne: Legacy ApocalypseBayne: Legacy Apocalypse, from Silver Axe Comics, features an axe-wielding Morpheus-from-The-Matrix type in a post-apocalyptic California battling mutants or vampires or what-have-you. Jay Reed’s art is much more than serviceable; it’s quite nice. Chyna McCoy’s script, however… well, listen to find out what Tim and Mulele have to say about it.

The Podcast of Oa Episode 91 – DC Rebirth

Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey are back with episode 97 of The Podcast of Oa as they two talk about a strong month for the Green Lantern corner of the DC Universe.  Before going to the normal comic book reviews Myron announces that the show can now be found on Soundcloud and will soon be coming to Google Play Music and Spotify.  Myron shares his observations from the recent The Dawn of the Justice League television special and how he believes that while they didn’t say too much about Green Lantern’s cinematic future DC Films gave clues to their direction via visual cues.  The two talk about the recent DC Rebirth announcement and give thought to what it might mean for Green Lantern.
In their comic book conversation both Myron and Bill felt that Robert Venditti has begun to hit his stride with the main Green Lantern title and that this month’s issue 48 really provided Hal Jordan with a new type of adversary.  And continuity hiccups aside both felt that the debut issue of Edge of Oblivion was a good one.  Sinestro #19 was also a hit with both Bill and Myron with Cullen Bunn really providing an event level story in the ongoing series.
