Misty Knight is getting the band back together . . . and the Weiners all try out for the bass spot! Talking about a book they had been looking to for some time (well, since they read about it on the internet box and/or Previews), will everyone want to hire or fire these heroes? Check it out!
Weed, John and Bo all gush a bit about how much they love their monthly dose of Secret Six (DC), before Weed goes on to tell us about his feelings of the wrap up on Shadowland (Marvel), the fun of Warriors Three (Marvel) and how he is dismissing the latest Buffy stories from Darkhorse from his perception of the series. Steege tells of his pitch invasion into the tabletop world of Bloodbowl and how he hates his local internet provider!
Bo swings in to talk about Amazing Spider-Man (Marvel), and his anticpation of how awesome C2E2 2011 could be and some of the guests announced. John recommends Supergod (Avatar Press) from Warren Ellis and touches upon Walking Dead on AMC.
In this episode of the FWCP, the gang discuss two comics written by gentlemen named Jonathan. One is a groundbreaking achievement, the other is a derivative failure. Also, Jesse does a review on the recent events in Amazing Spider-Man that’s more in-depth than previously thought possible.
[01:08] S.H.I.E.L.D. #3
[10:39] Amazing Spider-Man 639 + A Discussion on The Gauntlet and Grim Hunt
Reviews are back (finally) this week! No Pick Of The Week, but we do have a Fast Five! Picks include Baltimore: The Plague Ships #1 (Dark Horse), Brightest Day #7 (DC), Supergod #4 (Avatar), Red Robin #15 (DC), and S.H.I.E.L.D. #3 (Marvel).
This week is a special week as I am joined by listener and friend Jeff Sandquist. Jeff usually writes an e-mail to share his thoughts, but this week I thought I would give him the option of the microphone. What is discussed? Everything Jeff is reading: books from IDW, Avatar and other assorted publishers. Plus, a little conversation on Jeff’s career as a comic book fan, and a quick tangent on the Avatar movie.
Check it out; Jeff is a voice to like.
