Cape Town Community Podcast – Ep. 011 – “Good Dogs Hate Bad Guys”

Cape Town Community is excited to bring our new podcast to the Comics Podcast Network! We’re a comic book news and review podcast that runs about 90 minutes each episode — Enjoy!

There was a lot to love in this week’s batch of books, but we were surprised by the amount of violence man’s best friend inflicted on the criminal element! Is this a trend we wonder? This week we review Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #1, Kick-Ass 2 #2, Halcyon #4, American Vampire #13, Jimmy Olsen One-Shot, and more!

Check out the Show Notes after the jump!

Show Notes:

00:02:32 Like everyone else, we were bowled over by the Green Lantern preview that came out of Wonder Con.

Cape Town Comic Discussion
00:11:07 Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #1: Don and Jerry did not find enough to enjoy—besides a very funny intro—to recommend this new title.
00:16:37 Kick-Ass 2 #2: Don liked this follow-up more than Jerry, but Jerry did like Mark Millar’s self-referential dialogue.
00:21:33 Halcyon #4: This book and the moral questions at its core have us riveted.
00:25:42 Jimmy Olsen #1: If you haven’t bought this book yet, you’re missing out on one of the funniest books to come out this year.
00:32:37 American Vampire #13: Don is enraptured by Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque’s beautiful vampire story.
00:36:17 Captain America #616: You get a lot of Cap for your buck—and it’s all good!
00:43:30 Scarlet #5: Scarlet is fast becoming one of Bendis’ best books.
00:46:50 Wolverine #7: Even if the rest of the book was no good—don’t worry it was—we’d recommend it for the final page.
00:52:05 Undying Love #1: Tomm Coker, working with Daniel Freedman, is as adept a writer as he is an artist.
00:56:11 Detective Comics #875: We saved the best for last. In a week of above average comic books, Scott Snyder and Francesco Francavilla have produced the best of the pack.
