This week on the only LIVE comics radio show that won’t let you wake up the next morning in a bathtub full of ice, we welcome comics writer A.J. Lieberman to the Monster Cave. You’ve enjoyed A.J.’s work on such books as Cowboy Ninja Viking, Batman: Gotham Knights and Martian Manhunter. He joins us this week to chat about his new book from Image Comics; Harvest. If you have a question for A.J., feel free to post it on our Facebook wall or give us a call at 506-453-4949.
Also; ‘Shit Comics Reviewers Say’; This week we picked up Before Watchmen: Night Owl #3 and The Shadow #5 from Strange Adventures.
Just what is a comic book volcano? Why do Sidekickcast regular hosts Dan and Gavin care so much? Which of the Marvel bargain movies will we see first? How do we manage to link from this to the new Doctor Who? And most importantly what has guest host, the truly X-Centric Ned been smokin’? All this and more (well probably not much more) will be revealed in another tantalising trip through the world of the Sidekicks.
In a bulging review filled Stack Attack we take a look at Devil #3, Crossed: Family Values #1, Daredevil #506, Turf #1, Cowboy Ninja Viking #4-5 and as part of our coverage of the Second Coming event: Uncanny X-Men #523, New Mutants #12 and X-Men Legacy #235.
Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz that would test the investigational skills of even the world’s greatest detective focuses on the happenings at the C2E2 convention. Dan hasn’t done his homework for Knowing Me, Knowing You but at least his excuse is entertaining and Dig This! takes a nose dive too due to lack of actual comic books. Don’t miss out on the best bit of the show; the post-outro music cock ups.
Welcome back to another exciting episode of the show!
Well, it wouldn’t be a thirteenth episode without some problems along the way. This particular episode will be split up into two seperate episodes we like to call #13A and #13B.
In this first part of our big Episode 13, Mike and Chris dive head first into new reviews, and the return of the timestamps!
00:06:48 – Cowboy Ninja Viking #4 has some of Mike imaginiation inside.
00:16:47 – Walking Dead #70 hits those notes Chris was looking for last issue.
00:19:43 – Astounding Wolf-Man #21 just doesn’t have that punch all the other Kirkman books have.
00:21:00 – Forgetless #3 has one of the best covers!
00:37:02 – Chew #9 dishes out a ton of story.
00:41:45 – Chase Variant (One-Shot is All I Need) #1 provides Chris with a stronger desire to hunt down 2000A.D. issues.
This last episode of the year sort of snuck up on us, it’s hard to believe that 2009 is coming to an end. The first year of Comic Book Pitt has been a great experience, one that we hope to build upon for 2010. We want to thank all of you who have supported the show in our inaugural year, it really means a lot to us.
Have a safe and happy holiday and we’ll see you in the new year!
