House to Astonish Episode 103

We’re a few days late because of the Easter holiday, but Paul and I have got lots of chat for you this time round to make up for it. We’re talking about Angela joining the Marvel Universe, DC’s creative merry-go-round, Marvel’s new Avengers title, Jeff Parker’s Batman ’66, the return of Quantum & Woody, Marvel’s move into OGNs, Jim Rugg’s Supermag and various other bits and bobs. We’ve also got reviews of The Private Eye, Constantine and East of West, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is spreading like a viral infection. All this plus two dogs dressed as a pirate, DC’s new Thai green curry book and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of Smash Hits.

As always, we’d like to hear your thoughts on the things we’ve discussed during this episode. A few pressing questions to get you thinking:

  • Are the days of the comics completist over? Are there any characters or families of titles for whom you’re still a completist?
  • Is the pay-what-you-want model used by The Private Eye going to bring about a change in how online comics are sold?
  • Do DC’s constant creative upheavals leave you with any confidence about the state of their line?
