Happy New Year from The Comics Alternative! To help bring in 2018, Gwen and Derek are back to meticulously go through the January Previews catalog, providing recommendations and insights on a variety of upcoming titles. This month’s catalog is jam-packed with great solicits, so many, in fact, that this becomes an extra-long episode. They begin by looking at the various offerings announced for this year’s Free Comic Book Day, and then they move on to the catalog proper. Among the many comic books and graphic novels that Gwen and Derek highlight are:
Captain Ron Fortier and Chief Engineer Rob Davis return to the skies with a brand new episode of the Airship 27 Podcast!
This episode, they discuss their first release of 2017, Comanche Blood, updates on the Brother Bones movie (locations, casting and more!), their latest Sherlock Holmes volume on Radio Archives and more!
Plus, they spend a bulk of the episode answering listener questions before closing out the show!
Happy New Year! Join the G-crew in laying 2015 to rest with this special New Year’s Eve mini-sode. With a fresh batch of doomed New Year’s resolutions our wide eyed trio of microphone misfits stumble into 2016 and all the new comic book movies and resurrected television series therein. We’ll see you there, #InTheFuture!
It’s a new month — and a new year! — so Derek is back at his local shop, Collected in Plano, for another on-location episode of the podcast. This time he’s joined by Collected regulars Shea, Nick, Matt, and Craig, and the discussion topic is “Comics in the New Year.” Everyone brings up the various titles, events, and pop cultural phenomenon they are looking forward to in 2015. For some, it is the wrap up of currently ongoing series and storylines, particularly Fablesand Spider-Verse; the occasion of a crossover event, such as Marvel’s new Secret Wars or DC’s Convergence (although there doesn’t seem to be a lot of love for DC at this gathering); the publication of eagerly awaited graphic novels and trade collections (e.g., Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge ofForever andScott McCloud’s The Sculptor); announcements of brand new series; comics that were held over from 2014, such as Pascin and the latest volume of Love and Rockets: New Stories; and the new movies and television shows surrounding comics culture. As always, it’s a fun discussion with these guys. And once again, the Two Guys thank the great folks at Collected for letting them come by every month!
It’s a brand new year at the Monster Cave and we’re ringing it in in style with our guest Tony Donley! Tony is the creator of Albert Einstein: Time Mason a wicked clever comic the first issue of which was published through a very successful kickstarter campaign last year. Tony will be joining us to chat about this and much more. If you have a question for Tony Donley, feel free to post it on our Facebook wall or give us a call at 506-453-4949.
It’s our last show of 2013 and we want to thank each and every one of you who have tuned in to listen to us ramble on about one thing or another. Thanks also to those fine individuals who have helped support us by purchasing some of our swag either at a convention, at Strange Adventures or through our online store.
This episode is filled with us talking about the Wonder Woman pilot, comics and probably at least a little bit of Star Wars.
