CBMFP 193 (Part 1): If You’re Catching Frank Miller’s Drift

Ladies and Gentlemen... we've got a treat for you today. Rather than doing our usual Comic Con coverage in which we talk about too much news and pretend to cover a few titles we've actually split the show in two! That way if you have no desire to hear us talk about news or would rather just hear us talk about news there's an episode for that. You'll have to turn in for the second half to see what books we cover.

As for news... there's a plenty. Trailers are discussed. Lots of Batman happens. DC news happens. Turtle News. G.I. Joe and Street Fighter. There's something for most everyone.

CBMFP 192: Choppy Waters

First off, sorry this was late! Holiday weekend and then that thing called life delayed what was otherwise an on time podcast! Second, big apology to Steve who had to put up with me interrupting him over and over on this episode of the podcast while he filled in for absent Kevin! My goodness I'm unbearable. As for the actual episode there's a lengthy story about a bum and the Anime Expo followed up by a very lengthy look at Marvel and Image's newly announced titles. Strap in folks, strap in.

CBMFP 190: Thorsday

Exciting news today... we have a new ending! I know it's been forever and a day so I thought I would lead with that so that people would actually listen to the great work that Erin put into making it. For actual news covered on the episode we're back on the Fantastic Four train and it's stopping at the Denny's station... fun! Sony has some Spider-Demands and they reveal how Hollywood really runs and also how out of touch with society they are. Finally I went to this year's E3 so I'm going to talk about video games since I made twelve-year-old me proud by finally going to E3.
