On Location: The First July Visit to Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find

Happy 4th!

Michael and Derek are back at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find for the first of two July on-location episodes. They visit the shop on Independence Day, and they use the occasion to discuss current trends and titles in the comics industry. Mike explores recent manifestations of The Avengers and Justice League, focusing on Marvel and DC through what he calls the “classic Coke” approach. His discussion takes him across the writings of Jason Aaron and Scott Snyder, and then circling back to Tom King’s current work on Batman and the recent marriage event. Looking at the non-mainstream side of comics, Derek talks about his reaction to the first two issues of Evan Dorkin and Veronica Fish’s Blackwood and the initial offering of Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer, part of Titan Comics’ Hard Case Crime series. He also brings up Naoki Urasawa’s 20th Century Boys and the recent announcement of new Perfect Editions from VIZ Media. And, it being July 4th, the Two Guys also discuss comics, politics, and the current state of the country.

 

 

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!!!

Comics:
Skyward #3
Plastic Man #1

Alternate Reality – Episode #389

Lots of comics to talk about this week.  We look at a spooky ghost-like story in Immortal Hulk #1.  Charlie tells us about Deathstroke being out for Batman’s blood.  We finally get to the end of our weekly Justice League setup for the new series, but was it worth it?

Also, Charlie and Jon look at Papergirls from Brian K. Vaughan as Charlie tried to catch Jon up.  Jon takes a tour on the wild side with Medieval Spawn and Witchblade.  And we finish up with the new DC series The Unexpected.  (Wow, that was unanticipated)

Alternate Reality – Episode 388

Alternate Reality – Episode #388

Charlie this week is going deep on Descender from Image Comics telling why his feelings are so strong coming from the bottom of his very soul.  He’s also crazy about the Flash War.  He relates an amazing story found in the pages of Jughead: The Hunger about werewolves in the Archie universe.  And finally, Charlie reads a republished Star Wars story from Dark Horse in what is clearly a cash grab to coincide with the new Solo movie.  However, that doesn’t deter Charlie who had a lot of fun with the comedic revisionist history of Tag and Bink Were Here.

Meanwhile Jon is telling us about mostly the same books again.  He does get to mix it up just a little with Man of Steel #1, which is a new series about the same character that Jon always talks about.  Jon fills us in on whether the wait for Bendis was worth it and whether or not he delivered on this seminal fist issue.  Also, Jon follows up on Justice League: No Justice #3, and breaks a little more new ground with Doomsday Clock #5.

Alternate Reality coming to you wall to wall and tree top tall from our studio in Jeffersonville KY!!!

Enjoy!!!
