Here's the second part of year-end round-up that focuses on the bad or the worst of the year. I won't lie; this is one of our favorite episodes to record, so hopefully you enjoy Kevin and I telling you our worst of the year in comics and of course recapping several of our contributors moments as well. Just like with the "Best of/Good" list we'll have a written companion piece for this podcast that will be available in three parts tomorrow. Also if you missed the "Good of 2013" I've included it below as well and you can check out the companion pieces to that here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4. Have a safe and happy New Year from all of us at Comic Bastards and thank you for listening, we'll be back next week with a new episode.
Well here it is our big end of the year round-up. This is wear Kevin and I sit down and go through our categories and tell you what we and the rest of the Comic Bastards contributors picked for their "Best" of 2013. If you're unfamiliar with our format we tend to do this a bit differently from most sites so don't look for us to hand out "Best Writer" or "Artist." Nope we do it the Comic Bastards way. Look for the update later this week for the written companion piece to go along with this. iTunes decided to take the holiday off which jacked up the schedule. At any rate, here's 2013 according to Comic Bastards. Believe in the CBMFP!
We're very happy to present a special interview episode of the CBMFP this week. Kevin and I sat down and talked to Tonatzin Mondragon about her new kickstarter project Lumin: The Golden Warrior is Born. If Tonatzin looks familiar that's because she was one of the contestants on Stan Lee's Who Wants to be a Superhero. We talk a bit about that, but mostly about her goals with the project and of course our usual shenanigans.
Well it's a news heavy episode today, but there was actual news to discuss. Well a lot of entertainment news at any rate. The WB is moving and shaking this week with low-budget comic book movies, BUT WAIT! They cast Wonder Woman for Batman vs. Superman and we discus Justin Wood's article "Why We're Not Ready For Wonder Woman." We discuss the X-Men movies and the teased sequel to X-Men 3-1/2 and its crediting ending introducing Apocalypse. Stan Lee Media is back with another lawsuit... yup those fuckers just won't fuck off. The big comic book story this week is that DC told subscribers of Detective Comics that they're not getting issue #27 because it costs too much! We only had time to talk about two books this week so here they are:
- Xeno Trip #1
- Clown Fatale #2
