This week I wanted to do something different and I wanted to go back and discuss not just some of my favorite comics series but runs within them. Nowadays with so many books coming out week to week and month to month it is good sometime to stop and take a look back at the things that made us fans in the first place. Enjoy!
This week I wanted to count down some of my favorite Comic Book series that didn’t have the longest run (Less than 50 issues), but where still quality stories. So sit back relax and listen to the countdown and hopefully you will find some new series to seek out and read. Enjoy!
A new month a new Cutting My Stack episode! If you are a new listener this is a new format to the podcast where I do one full show the beginning of each month and review all the comics I read the previous month. This episode I will be discussing a huge helping of Marvel Now titles as well as Avengers Academy, and Captain Marvel. Enjoy!

This week on the only LIVE comics radio program that takes you back to school, we welcome the writer of Marvel’s Avengers Academy, Christos Gage to the Monster Cave. Christos joins us to chat about writing for comics and for film, the end of his run on Avengers Academy and what might be waiting for him in the Marvel Now! future. If you’ve got a question for Christos, feel free to post it on our Facebook wall or give us a call at 506-453-4949.
As usual, we picked up our books from Strange Adventures and we plan to give some of them a WMD review during ‘Shit Comics Reviewers Say’.
This week, I have a fun interview with Christos Gage from Marvel’s Avengers Academy and First X-Men, among others, as well as Image’s crime noir hardcover Sunset. We talk about working with Neal Adams and Joss Whedon as well as the untimely end of Avengers Academy. You’ll enjoy hearing what he has to say!
Next, I review this week’s comics, followed by Gianluca Glazer talking with me about the latest News & Previews.
This week I focus my attention on one tittle that I was woefully behind on that I finally got the chance to get caught up on. What is the comic you might ask it is Marvel’s Avengers Academy I will talk about in detail issues 14 thur 32 and also the 14.1 issue as well. After the great response I got on the last episode I did of this manner for Secret Avengers I decided it was time to do another. Enjoy!
Individually they were just like those guys who like to hang around the comic book shop and talk comics but together they form the Earth’s Mightiest Podcast!
This episode we cover New Avengers #26, Avengers Vs. X-Men #3,Avengers Academy #29, Avengers Academy #30, Secret Avengers #27, Avengers #26, Avengers Vs. X-Men #4 and AvX Versus #2.
