Reviews: Kong of Skull Island #1, New Super-Man #1, Powerpuff Girs Vol 3 #1, Ghostbusters

No rest for the podcaster! The epic 700th episode went down last week and now it’s off to San Diego for Comic Con! Because of all the mad planning and prepping, Jimmy does a quickie solo episode to let you know what his media coverage/plans are for this year’s SDCC. He recruits some friends to do some mp3 reviews for him so it’s not entirely all Jimmy all the time. You’re welcome! Thanks to Rich, Emily, Monica and John for sending their audio reviews in. News includes: a new Jessica Jones comic is coming from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, DC/Vertigo is bringing a comic book sequel to the 1987 film The Lost Boys, Betty Boop returns to comic books via Dynamite Entertainment, Dark Horse announces more adult coloring books including Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Bryan Lee O’Malley has a new graphic novel trilogy coming your way.

Jimmy will do an SDCC recap next week and will probably just release SDCC specials for 2-3 weeks to catch up on life. So, no regular format podcast for at a bit. Hope you enjoy all the massive coverage he’s going to get! And if you see him out there, say “hi”!

Reviews: Genius #1, Howtoons (Re)Ignition #1, Usagi Yojimbo Senso #1

Jimmy planned on having the podcast wife Erica on to co-host but due to a work commitment (on his part) he had to go solo. Next week there shall be a co-host! He discusses the demise of The Podcast Arena at New York Comic Con this year and mourns/gives tribute to one of his idols Robin Williams. Jimmy sat in the roundtables for the hit BBC America show Orphan Black and chatted with stars and producers Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Ari Millen, Dylan Bruce, Kristian Bruun, Graeme Manson, and John Fawcet. The roundtables were brief as they had to rush off to their panel but we got some good questions in. Apologies for the annoying/unprofessional reporter from HGTV whom manipulated the tables with her inane questions and often interrupted talent to chat with them. Besides that, and while brief, we still managed to get some exciting news about the upcoming season! Jimmy also chatted with amazing cartoonist Gene Luen Yang about his new graphic novel The Shadow Hero and some of his awesome past comic work. News includes: a new Batman comic called Gotham by Midnight coming from Ray Fawkes/Ben Templesmith, Disney theme parks will add more Star Wars and Kyle Maclachlan joins Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!

Reviews: The Adventures of Chrissie Claus, A Christmas Carol, Holiday Wars, Holidaze, Superf*ckers Save Christmas, Scrooge and Santa

Happy Christmas! Jimmy is in New Jersey visiting his sister and the family for Christmas. So, he brings you this quickie, some would say weird, solo episode full of Christmas joy (and music) and lots of babbling. And since it is the holiday, he decides to review Christmas comic books. You’ll have to listen in to find out which were naughty and which were nice. He briefly talks about some It’s A Wonderful Life tidbits, recent casting of Paul Rudd as Ant Man and Vin Diesel as Groot, and the persistent rumor that JK Rowling is producing a Harry Potter stage play. Only one news bit but it’ll tug your heartstrings as it’s about a girl with cancer in Vallejo, CA whom gets a Wonder Girl type wish. Plus a special message from Hugh Grant, the prime minister of the UK. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
