This episode we discuss the upcoming JIM HENSON’S THE DARK CRYSTAL TALES and the new comiXology digital exclusive series – EXPANSE from BOOM! Studios.
Diving in to new books, we discuss two great crossovers – PLANET OF THE APES/GREEN LANTERNS #1, and BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA/ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK #5. Plus we get caught up on THE WOODS with issue #29.
Chris goes solo with this episode and when he’s left to his own devices things can get… scary.
This episode Chris goes over a little bit of news, covers KLAUS #1, UFOLOGY #6, ROWANS RUIN #2, THE WOODS #17, and briefly touches on JOHN FLOOD #4, TOIL AND TROUBLE #3, and mentions HACKTIVIST #4 by name! Yeah. That happened.
We’re always looking for your thoughts on the books we read and the books you’re reading. So, be sure to comment below and let’s talk about it!
When you get to your local comics shop this Wednesday, be sure to pick up The Woods #6 from James Tynion IV. You should also be able to pick up that series’ first trade paperback and the fifth issue, which came out from BOOM! Studios not long ago! That way, you’ll be able to be caught up on this great story!
During this week’s 147th podcast episode, James returns to my podcast to talk about The Woods as well as Memetic, his next BOOM! project coming out on October 22! You’ll hear him discuss both excellent books during this fun chat!
Also, we delve into Batman Eternal, a wonderful weekly title from DC Comics he has a lot to do with! We talk about the series some, including some strange Internet comments about the book. James even tells me what else he has going and as well as what he thought of this past week’s pilot episode of Gotham from Fox! You won’t want to miss what he was to say about it all!
Next week, there’ll be yet another fun chat with a great comics creator as we get closer and closer to episode #150!
