This week we finish the first story arc of the current Mighty Thor series with issue #5! It’s Thor vs. Odin, mostly in the background, with a lot of other stuff going on! Malekith gets married! Freyja gets stabbed! The Warriors Three get ignored! Nuff said, True Believers!
This week, it’s Mighty Thor #2, courtesy of Aaron and Dauterman! Thor defends Alfheim from Roxxon and Malekith’s evil army, while Heimdal gets thrown in jail, and Loki tries to prove himself to King Laufey, despite his face pubes! Plus I have a few basic thoughts on Wonder Woman (no spoilers)! Nuff said!
OK, how about something a little more recent? This week we look at Mighty Thor #1 (2016) – Yes, it’s the continuation of Jane Foster’s adventures as she goes up against a falling satellite, everyone sings “It’s Raining Elves!”, the Avengers show up and then leave, and Loki gets face pubes! Fluff said!

Recently I attended the first-ever MegaCon Fan Days, and I made two excellent contacts then that turned into interviews I’m sharing during this episode!
First up is James Haike, creator of the excellent independent comic Solar Flare. During our chat, he discusses what inspired him to write this comic, how he assembled the team (including Branko Jovanovic, Song Ye and Michael Legace) who’s bringing it to life and what we can expect to see from them in the future! I’m a big fan of this title, so I strongly recommend that you support James’ current Kickstarter campaign like I have! You can also purchase the individual issues at their website, so don’t miss out! To view the video about the series we discuss during our conversation, go to this link!
Then I conclude this episode with a brief chat with Tim Townsend, who’s working on Marvel’s new Doctor Strange comic with Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo. He talks about what he does to make this great book happen, and tells us a little about the various characters in the Sorcerer Supreme’s life we might or might not see again soon!
It’s been a while, but we’re back in style! Yes, that is a Chipmunks quote. Anyway, we’re up to lucky number 13 on the Comic Timing Extra Point. This episode, Ian runs solo for the first half, as he discusses selling off a bunch of his comic collection at Wild Pig Comics in Kenilworth, New Jersey two weeks back. Much thanks to Wild Pig’s owner, the talented Chris Eberle of Comic Geek Speak, for making that magic happen! There’s also some discussion of the transition from physical copies to going mostly digital, manga scanlations and why you should either wait for official release or hit the library over turning to the dark side of the Internet, and then a quick review of Southern Bastards Volume 1 by Jason Aaron and Jason Latour.
After that, we transition to the one and only interview Ian conducted at the 2015 edition of New York Comic Con, with the one and only Shawn Pryor. Shawn discusses what it’s like to return to New York City after a twenty year hiatus, what’s next in store for Cash & Carrie post-Kickstarter, and his newest miniseries coming out of Action Lab Entertainment in 2016, F.O.R.C.E. It ain’t Super Pro, yo!
