This week on the podcast, we review the start of Marvel’s newest event: Avengers vs. X-Men #1. Have you heard of it? Of course you have. Did the buildup pay off? Is the world ready for another event? Listen in!
What did you think of the start of Avengers vs. X-Men? Head over to our podcast Facebook page and let us know.
This week we bid farewell to Ned as Second Coming comes to an end, so Mikey Bumchin pops in to say bye along with Sidekickcast regular hosts Dan Marshall and Gavin Jones. There’s some more guerilla marketing going on and an unusual method employed to discuss the news from San Diego Comic Con 2010.
For Stack Attack we read Scarlet #1, Batman #701, Daredevil #508, The Thanos Imperative #2, Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #1, X-Force: Sex and Violence #1 and X-Men: Second Coming #2.
There’s a twist for this week’s Secrets and Lies, to say anymore would spoil the fun. No Knowing Me, Knowing You but it will pick back next with Scott Pilgrim vol.1. Fear no as we do have Mike taking a look at Elephant Men vol.1 in Dig This! Don’t forget to listen past the outro music for the stuff that got cut and if you realy do have to see Gavin in his Deadpool outfit then click here, it ain’t pretty!
We finally did it, we reached 50 episodes! In this milestone episode, Dang & Duke talk about news coming out of San Diego Comic Con and talk about a LOT of comics, in fact there are too many to name here.
Speaking of SDCC, we announce the winner of our “Tell Us Your Favorite Convention Story” contest.
The Danger Room has a full quota this week as regular Sidekickcast hosts Dan and Gavin are joined by two of your favourite Sidekicks; Ned and Mikey Bumchin. With a couple X-Fans like this in the room we couldn’t help but discuss the latest spate of X-castings for the latest movie aswell as what else has been going down in geek town.
In Stack Attack we review Invincible Iron Man #26, New Avengers #1, The Thanos Imperative #1, Bulletproof Coffin #1, Batman #700, Daredevil #507, Age of Heroes #2 and in Second Coming: Uncanny X-Men #525 and New Mutants #14.
It’s 16-12 in Secrets and Lies so it’s all to play for as Dan drafts in the Super Geek Squad to help him out but will he actually listen to them?! The Umbrella Academy is the subject of this week’s Knowing Me, Knowing You and Ned takes a look at Paul Pope’sBatman: Year 100 in Dig This! Don’t forget to listen past the outro music for our usual clutch of cock-ups.
Once upon a time in a far away land there were three princes; Prince Dan Charming, Bonny Prince Bones and the artist formally known as X-Centric Prince Ned. Together these princes formed a merry band of Sidekicks and set out into the wide world to spread the word of las comicas. Listen in as they tell tales of their upcoming adventures as far as the wetsern port city of Bristol for the Bristol International Comic and Small Press Expo to present a panel with the mighty pen-man of The Dark; Chris Lynch. Ok I’m growing tired of this Fables speak, so I’ll just say we also talk about upcoming stuff on the site and learn the rules of the comic book fashion club.
In Stack Attack this week we take a look at Invincible Iron Man #25, The New Avengers Finale, Siege #4, The Sentry: Fallen Sun, Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #1, Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis #1, X-Force #26, Uncanny X-Men #524, X-Men Second Coming Revelations: Hellbound #1 and X-Factor #204.
We focus on comic book movies in Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz with a twist where you’re the detective, sniffing out the carefully crafted misinformation. Our Knowing Me, Knowing You choice for Dan this week is Matt Fraction and Gabriel Ba’s Casanova and we finally take a look at Fables for Dig This! Don’t forget to listen past the outro music for the classic out-takes.
Jesse, Art, Freddie, and Danny(!) discuss free comics, indie comics, mainstream comics, and Indian mainstream comics.
