The Comic Frontline crew is back to talk comic news, more on DC Rebirth, and cover this week’s Top 5 picks. Which cast member only read one book? Which one is stuck on a boat with Carnage? Who read Hyperion? What did we think of the DC Rebirth titles announced? Learn all this and more in our 101st episode!

Episode 14! Recorded on 2/20/2015. Erik and James discuss Nova #27, She-Hulk #12, Uncanny X-Men #31, All-New Captain America #4, Captain America and the Mighty Avengers #5, and Silver Surfer #9, among other things. They ran long on comic talk, so didn’t get into one of their usual hypothetical make-em-ups to end the show, except for a quick bit about Disney princesses & princes. Erik teases an upcoming project involving a certain mental organism designed for stuff. And there were beers. Lots of beers.

The evil Twitter gang comes to kick the crap out of the Myspace buddies in Kickass 2! Things don’t look good for Dave, and the Weiners look to see what all this fuss is about John ROmita Jr and Mark Millar.
Tyler gets a bit drunk and sends us his very first STREET MEET . . . and it is a bit obnoxious and shows why he gets slapped quite often.
Bo drools over the art in Carnage (Marvel), and checks out Ragman Suit of Souls (DC). John tips his hat to the latest Punisher one shot, and wants Vertigo and DC to put out more of the 100 page collections they are doing.
Steege gets the Legendary edition of Bloodbowl, and dives back into Warcraft. Weed gets his balls kicked in by Skullkickers (Image), Morning Glories (Image), Brightest Day (DC) and DV8 (Wildstorm).
Then the boys have a few words to say on movies that have been out too long to be topical!
We have another guest host in the Pitt this week. One of our long-time listeners, Link from the Yamagato Industries Business Report podcast, stops by to let us know that he’ll be returning from the dead very soon.
In this episode, we recap PIX (where Dang’s new comic, Space Base One, debuted), review many comics and also announce the official CBP t-shirts, which you can find at our store.
