Alternate Reality – Episode 400

Alternate Reality – Episode #400

There’s a party going on right here, and it’s Jon and Charlie celebrating their 400th episode.  We’ve got special music, we’ve got good friends, and there’s the sexy ladies over there dancing on the…. Well you can’t see that so there’s no point in getting into it.

Suffice it to say that there’s a lot of fun going on here but Jon and Charlie don’t let that get in their way.  They’ve got comics to review, and by Jiminy nothing’s going to stop them.  Jon continues to be challenged by the Immortal Hulk, while Charlie walks us through Spider-Geddon.  Several DC comics then make the list, Supergirl, Hawkman, and Detective Comics respectively, and Charlie finishes talking about an Image book (of all things) about an STD that improves your looks??? Yep, you heard me.

Lastly Jon and Charlie get some love from a couple longtime listeners who sent in voicemails to help us celebrate the 400th episode.  There’s too much fun for your tiny mind to process on this episode of Alternate Reality!!!

Enjoy.

The Immortal Hulk #7

Wayne’s Comics Podcast #350: Robert Venditti

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, Surrogates, Robert Venditti, Carter Hall, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Thanagar, Krypton, Rann, Justice League, adventure,

Episode 350 is a special one, and it features my recent interview with high-power comics creator Robert Venditti, who discusses his current run on Hawkman from DC. He’s one of my favorite writers, and he’s working on one of my all-time favorite characters, so it’s a fun discussion! We talk about the various new elements he’s added to this classic character as well as what we can expect from him in the near future! You can keep up with Robert at his website at this link!

Next week, we begin the next 350 episodes, and more!

Comics Alternative, On Location: The Second September Visit to Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find

Batman’s Junk

Michael and Derek are back at their local shop, Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find, to discuss recent mainstream and indie titles that have captured their attention. Mike starts the ball rolling by focusing on recent expressions of a couple of second-tier characters, Doctor Strange and Hawkman, as handled by Mark Waid and Robert Venditti, respectively. He then takes the conversation into a more “adult” direction with the first issue in Batman: Damned, part of DC’s new Black Label imprint. This title is notable for a couple of reasons. First, it’s now difficult to find, and as such, both fans and retailers are selling copies for a hefty price. But even more significant is the fact that in this first issue, readers get to see Batman naked. That’s right, Wayne’s wang. Batman’s junk. The recent titles that Derek brings up are much tamer in nature. He begins with Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins’s Black Badge (BOOM! Studio), the second issue of which will be released next week. This is a promising new limited series that has all of the secretive, undercover, and espionage-y markings of a Kindt narrative. However, Derek isn’t as excited about the new Image series, Man-Eaters, written by Chelsea Cain and art by Kate Niemczyk. While he admires the message that seems to be embedded in the story, the first issue is rather sketchy in laying any satisfying narrative groundwork. But Derek more enamored by the minicomic Common Blessings and Common Curses, written by Maritsa Patrinos and nominated this year for an Ignatz Award in the Outstanding Minicomic category. It was a wonderful find at this year’s Small Press Expo.

Remember that The Comics Alternative‘s on-location series is now part of the Queen City Podcast Network! Check out the great podcast series that give life to Charlotte!

Comic Geek Speak’s Spotlight on Hawkman and Hawkgirl, episode 989

Alternate Reality – Episode 390

*So I don’t know why but there was some static that was recorded during this last episode.  We have no idea why or where it came from as I didn’t discover it till we were posting the episode.  Might be a short in the mic cables.  Not sure.  We’ll try to figure out why this is happening.  Sorry about that.*

Alternate Reality – Episode #390

We’re back baby!  Alternate Reality was gone last week due exclusively to the fact that Charlie couldn’t make it back from Heroes Con in time.  But after a week hiatus to give Charlie a chance to sober up we got more comics to talk about this week.

This week, in order to earn a little small publisher/creator owned cred with Chris Partin, Charlie is talking about Skyward from Image Comics.  Charlie regales us with the awesome Zero-G premis of this story.  Then Jon and Charlie round out the rest of the episode talking about a slate of DC and Marvel books.

Lastly, Charlie fills us in on all the hijinks that occurred during his time in Charlotte, North Carolina at Heroes Con.  Charlie even has a special gift for Jon.

Alternate Reality; bringing you the best every week in comic book podcasting!!!

Enjoy!!!
