It’s an extra long show this time as there’s so much to get through, but an extra long show means extra long out-takes too so don’t forget to listen past the outro music yo!
In this episode, we review Green Lantern #0, the debut of Simon Baz. This dude is everywhere: comics, news, toys… comics. Was the first appearance of DC Comics’ new Arab-American Green Lantern any good? Listen in!
What’s your favorite Geoff Johns “New 52” title: Aquaman, Green Lantern, or Justice League? This episode we take a look at the 11th issues of all three and pick our favorite. Why not wait until issue #12, you ask? Cause this is how we roll. Listen in!
This episode we discuss DC’s New 52 comics, six months into the grand experiment/relaunch. Before we get to that, however, we discuss some news coming out of WonderCon. Then, in Part 1 of our discussion (at about the 23:45 mark), we talk about the following New 52 families of DC comics:
Finally, in the episode, I mentioned a fellow comic blogger’s website, calling it Leonard Snart’s Gun, when actually it is named The Comics Rogue. Check it out.
Be sure to come back for Part 2 of the discussion.
Yup, it happened! Comic Timing made it to 130 episodes! Woohoo! To celebrate, Brent and Ian are joined by artist extraordinaire and friend of the show, Jamal Igle.

Plus, Jamal discusses his travels out of the country over the past year to conventions in Venezuela and Macedonia.

A new era begins for the Sidekickcast, from the ashes of the Sidekick Civil War rises a new website and a revitalized podcast. Don’t worry it’s same old dick and fart jokes with your regular co-hosts Gavin Jones and Dan Marshall, they even manage to throw in some comic chat in between trying to make each other laugh. The show starts with some news updates on Sin City 2, Sidekick favourite topic; Age of Apocalypse and the new Avengers line up.
With a new start comes new reviews in Stack Attack as Dan has become totally overcome by DCNu fever, Marvel zombie no more, he’s now a total New 52 convert.
Secrets and Lies, the comic book news quiz with a twist is still rocking but will Dan be able to take advantage of Gavin’s recent bad form as the replacement Sidekicks have shown him how it’s really done?
To end out the show we ask for your help in deciding our new final segment, you have the power in #youdecide. Don’t forget to listen past the outro music for the usual brand of bad manners, extremely inappropriate language and out takes that would make Jeremy Beadle turn in his tiny little grave.
With Daniel Marshall still out of the picture, Gavin resorts to a different tactic in the search for a new co-host, he replaces one Daniel with another as Daniel Clifford takes to the hot seat. There’s a lot of talk about Daniel, mostly by himself and then they look at some comics. In fact a lot of comics. Stack Attack sees the majority of the The DC New 52 in one hit, foolish some may say…they’d be right.
Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz with a twist has a new challenger and one that is maybe up to the task. Daniel brings with him a choice for Dig That! as the new duo review The Amazing Spider-Man: Origin of the Species. Then everything changes…
It’s time to start the second half of our conversation about DC’s new 52 number one issues, specifically, Travis and I talk about the week 3 comics (warning: spoilers!). Have a listen to find out which titles we liked or didn’t like (and why), and whether they were new reader friendly.
We’re late, it’s true, but we wanted some of the heat to cool down from the disaster that was the heated arguments and diatribes sparked by summers’ announcements, such as Miles Morales, the dirth of female creators in the new 52, and we note the rise of non-humorous incivility due to the internet. We were disaapointed. Move the fuck on and grow up and be human to each other.
We then move on ourselves and I do a small review of the anime Claymore. Moving on we catch up with the line ups of the DCnU. We make some initial decisions on what we might wanna buy, which gets shaken out in a couple episodes. I hate Grant Morrison again. We WERE RIGHT ABOUT SCOTT LOBDELL! Then i make the announcement that i will no longer get crossovers just to get a full story.
