Comic Book Pitt #81 – Grinding Gears

It truly is the season of Festivus, as both Dan and the Duke air some grievances. Duke takes umbrage with Marvel’s current polybagging of the Ultimate titles while Dan realizes that going back and rereading The Walking Dead from the beginning isn’t as easy as he thought.

Of course there is some comic talk, as D & D review Defenders #1, Mouse Guard The Black Axe #3, Valen the Outcast #1 and Irredeemable #32. There’s also some books reviewed from the recent past; 100 Bullets Vol. 5: The Counterfifth Detective and Captain Britain and MI:13.


Comic Book Pitt episodes will now be featured on Old Game Reviewer, a blog focused on geek culture. If you’re into comics, games, music, movies, TV, tech, toys, etc, there’s a very good chance you’ll find something of interest at OGR, so go check ’em out and tell them CBP sent you.

Send us the worst gimmick covers you can find, either ones that you might have stashed in your own collection or if you remember one from years ago, try to find the image online.
