Estimated sales, news, and comic book reviews, you name it. Ryan and Allen are discussing it all on this week’s episode. You’ve probably noticed your local comic shop still has stacks of Marvel Legacy variants, there’s a reason why. Rob comes on and the guys break down Rob’s October sales summary for the X-titles. Rob and Anthony also sit in a couple books this week. Plus some Fastball Tweets from the episode thread. Ryan and Allen have a stacked show for you this week. Thanks for listening!
Welcome back! We’re on Episode #2 of the Weekly Comics News Show — an (obviously) weekly program that brings you the latest in comic book news, releases, and more. Host Patrick Aloia and his guest hosts (this week — Kay Honda) will scour through releases and news stories every week to get you exactly what you need to be up to date in the world of comics.
This week we’re featuring stories on STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE comic release, the app HOOPLA, and Marvel’s MONSTERS UNLEASHED. The ROGUE ONE comic is set to add more to the ROGUE ONE story, the HOOPLA app is going to have DC REBIRTH comics available for reading, and the highly anticipated Marvel event MONSTERS UNLEASHED is finally coming out.
For DC, we’re also talking about RAVEN #5, which is just as excellent as the rest of Marv Wolfman’s series has been, BATMAN #15 which will continue to explore the relationship between Batman and Cat Woman. For Marvel, we have IRON MAN #3 and the final issue of Genndy Tartakovsky’s CAGE. For Image, Sean Lewis’ THE FEW has us very excited, along with Ed Brubaker’s KILL OR BE KILLED, THEY’RE NOT LIKE US #13, and more. We’ll also talk about Valiant’s HARBINGER RENEGADES #3, and IDW’s REVOLUTIONARIES.
Stay tuned for new episodes of the Weekly Comics News Show, and on all of ComicsVerse’s video content. Check out our Facebook Live and Instagram Live videos while we produce the show to meet the hosts, the crew, and get a peek at what it takes to get a weekly show running.

This week we’re featuring stories on CBLDF’s release statement, and a big surprise in YOUNG JUSTICE. CBLDF’s statement on Simon & Schuster’s decision to publish Milo Yiannopoulos’ memoir is largely non-committal but also admonishing of efforts to protest the book. YOUNG JUSTICE’s co-creator Greg Weisman confirmed that a character in the DC cartoon series is LGBT.
For new releases, we’re featuring Marvel’s INHUMANS vs X-MEN, which is on their third issue (#2 since they started with #0) where things start to come to a head between the X-Men and the Inhumans as they fight for survival. And for DC, we’re featuring ALL-STAR BATMAN, which begins a new storyline featuring Mr. Freeze, which proves to be as fun as you’d expect. The featured Image release is the highly anticipated GOD COUNTRY, which has a big sword, which is good and important. We’ll also talk about Darkhorse, BOOM! Studios, and IDW.

Welcome back! Apologies for the late episode; though it was recorded on Sunday, life had Doc in a head lock for a few days and it was difficult to get any editing done. Rest assured it is at least partially worth the wait.
Doc and Father Shepherd are chomping at the bit to review Netflix’s Daredevil series for you guys as they have both seen at least half of the episodes, so this time around you get a brief spoiler-free review after some news segments. Next week, they will spoil the HELL out of it, so make sure you watch it all! You’ve been given fair warning.
To submit FANQUISITION topics for our weekly panel to address, submit via twitter with #fanquisition or email email@example.com. You will be entered to win seriously cool comics.
