This week we’re featuring stories on STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE comic release, the app HOOPLA, and Marvel’s MONSTERS UNLEASHED. The ROGUE ONE comic is set to add more to the ROGUE ONE story, the HOOPLA app is going to have DC REBIRTH comics available for reading, and the highly anticipated Marvel event MONSTERS UNLEASHED is finally coming out.

For DC, we’re also talking about RAVEN #5, which is just as excellent as the rest of Marv Wolfman’s series has been, BATMAN #15 which will continue to explore the relationship between Batman and Cat Woman. For Marvel, we have IRON MAN #3 and the final issue of Genndy Tartakovsky’s CAGE. For Image, Sean Lewis’ THE FEW has us very excited, along with Ed Brubaker’s KILL OR BE KILLED, THEY’RE NOT LIKE US #13, and more. We’ll also talk about Valiant’s HARBINGER RENEGADES #3, and IDW’s REVOLUTIONARIES.

ComicsVerse Comic Book News Show Episode 1

ComicsVerse presents the Weekly Comics News Show — a weekly program bringing you the latest in comic book news, releases, and more. Host Patrick Aloia and his guest hosts (this week — Lilie Le Prevost) will scour through releases and news stories every week to get you exactly what you need to be up to date in the world of comics.

What was Rhode Island Comic Con like in 2016? Here’s our wrap-up video!

This week we’re featuring stories on CBLDF’s release statement, and a big surprise in YOUNG JUSTICE. CBLDF’s statement on Simon & Schuster’s decision to publish Milo Yiannopoulos’ memoir is largely non-committal but also admonishing of efforts to protest the book. YOUNG JUSTICE’s co-creator Greg Weisman confirmed that a character in the DC cartoon series is LGBT.

Want more Lilie? Duh! We all do! She interviewed Tim Jones at Rhode Island Comic Con this year!

For new releases, we’re featuring Marvel’s INHUMANS vs X-MEN, which is on their third issue (#2 since they started with #0) where things start to come to a head between the X-Men and the Inhumans as they fight for survival. And for DC, we’re featuring ALL-STAR BATMAN, which begins a new storyline featuring Mr. Freeze, which proves to be as fun as you’d expect. The featured Image release is the highly anticipated GOD COUNTRY, which has a big sword, which is good and important. We’ll also talk about Darkhorse, BOOM! Studios, and IDW.

Lilie kicks ass at this Bob Camp interview at this year’s Rhode Island Comic Con!

Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 79.1: A Discussion of the 2014 Eisner Award Nominations

The James Brown of Comics Podcasting

eisnerawardslogoOn this special episode of The Comics Alternative, Andy and Derek devote the entire show to the 2014 Eisner Award Nominations. They take a close look at almost all of the categories, weighing in on their favorites nominees, commenting on the pros and cons of the picks, and speculating on the actual process of compiling the nominees list. What the Two Guys realize is that many of the comics that they reviewed in 2013, and many of the creators they interviewed over the past year, are noticeably present on the nominee list…leading Andy to believe that there is such a thing as a “Comics Alternative bump” for exposure and recognition. Derek, on the other hand, begins his efforts in pushing for more Comics Alternative recognition in the first of what will be five different episodes of the podcast for this week, making him (in the words of Andy) “the James Brown of comics podcasting.” So Derek feels good. You knew that he would.
