About comicbookpitt

Comic Book Pitt is a weekly podcast broadcast from Pittsburgh, PA that talks about and reviews comic books.

Comic Book Pitt #104 – Tones and Noises, Pops and Clicks

The training wheels are off and Jared & Dan are off and running with some conversation and reviews. Dan gives a quick recap of Neil Gaiman’s speaking engagement in Pittsburgh, followed by the revelation that neither Jared nor Dan are familiar with much of his work. Awkward.

Comics reviewed in this episode: All New X-Men #1, Thor The God of Thunder #1, Amazing Spider-Man #697, and Batman #14. Dan gives quick mentions of Saga #7 and Great Pacific #1 while Jared spotlights the indie comic he discovered at SPX, Toupydoops.

Don’t forget to check out our new video feature, KILL YOUR COMIC. Have a comic you’d like to kill or can you think of a unique way to dispose of a comic? Let us know what you think! Email us at comicbookpitt@gmail.com.

 

Comic Book Pitt: Kill Your Comic #1

Sometimes, a comic book is so terrible, that it’s not enough to throw it
away or give it away; you may need to get your hands dirty and kill
your comic.

In our first installment of KYC, we deep-fry the craptactular Youngblood #71.

Comic Book Pitt does not endorse deep-frying comic books and takes no
responsibility for any injuries or damage that may occur in the process.

Comic book (aka “flurggis”) conversation dominates this episode and we tried our first “lightning round” of comic reviews.
