On this podcast we talk some Marvel’s Most Wanted and book Stephen Amell’s SummerSlam match. Then it’s on to comics with reviews of King, Young Terrorists and Howard the Human. Oh yeah. Dig it! Listen in!
This week we talk Lois Lane (One-Shot), Guardians of the Galaxy #12, Hacktivist #2, DC is flashing forward, Rocket Racoon is going solo, Marvel issues a mea culpa with ‘All Hail the King’ and TV shows are finding their heroes.
This week on the only LIVE comics radio program that’s not afraid to step in the ring with the big boys, we welcome writer Dennis Hopeless to the Monster Cave.
Of course you know Dennis’ work from Marvel’s Avengers Arena and Legion of Monsters. He also has some webcomics that will be available soon in the form of Lakerats with Skottie Young and Meatshakes with Chris Grine.
If you have a question for Dennis Hopeless, feel free to post it on our Facebook wall or give us a call at 506-453-4949.
We will also be giving you our rundown of all the shenanigans that went down at the first ever East Coast Comic Expo last weekend as well as letting you know where you can go to listen to the audio and possibly view some video of the great creator panels that went on with the likes of Andy Belanger, Becky Cloonan, Troy little, Brenda Hickey, Nick Bradshaw and Ramon Perez.
We also have a great guest on the back end of the program this week in the form of local film maker Travis Grant who stops by to tell us about his current project ‘Vengeance Remains’. What is it? How can you help get it made? Tune in to find out!

L. Frank Baum’s classic children’s story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was published 109 years ago and still inspires attempts to adapt it to other media. While the 1939 MGM movie tends to define the story in the minds of many, subsequent adaptations do stick closer to the original book than to the movie, including the two we discuss this week: a French version adapted by David Chauvel and Enrique Fernandez (published in English by Image), and Marvel’s recent version, adapted by Eric Shanower and Skottie Young.
Rashad Doucet, a published children’s book author in his own right, joins Tim in comparing the two adaptations, as well as discussing Yuko Osada‘s “Toto: The Wonderful Adventure” and, uh, “sexy Dorothys“.
This week on the show I tell you all about my adventures at Wizard World Chicago 2008. Including the people I met, the Comics Podcasting Panel and all of the collected editions that bought at unbelievable discounts – Legion of Monsters HC (Marvel), Essential Horror Volume 1 (Marvel), Stoker’s Dracula (Marvel), Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness (Marvel and Dynamite), Marvel Masterworks: Atlas Era – Tales of Suspense Volume 2 (Marvel) and Ex Machina Deluxe Edition HC (DC). In just a few days I’ve managed to read most of them.
Also, there is news that the Absolute Black Dossierwill not include the 45 rpm song by Alan Moore. Wasn’t that the whole point of this edition? As much as I will probably pick it up, I’m over this whole soap opera.
Lastly, as usual I rundown the New Releases of the Week and congratulations to Joe of Lowell, Massachusetts on winning my giveaway of Kick-Ass #1 and 2 (Marvel/Icon).
