Happy Free Comic Book Day! Paul and I have got over an hour and a half of discussion for you, talking about FCBD itself, the sad passing of Al Feldstein, the changes to the Comixology app, the news from C2E2 (including the death of Wolverine, the Tenth Realm storyline, the new Storm and Star-Lord ongoing series, the 100th Anniversary issues from Marvel, the revival of Dark Horse Presents and the Young Guns 2 initiative) and the Chew animated movie. We’ve also got reviews of Southern Bastards, Batgirl Annual and Amazing Spider-Man, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe learns what you should say if someone asks you if you are a god. All this plus the Soule Pole, the digital trees of Luxembourg and Big Paddy’s Corporate Tax Shack.
As usual, we want to know what you think about the things we’ve discussed on the podcast, including (but not limited to) things like:
- Did your local comic book store do anything cool for Free Comic Book Day?
- Will the changes Amazon has made to the Comixology app change your purchasing habits?
- What other artists do you think deserve a Young Guns-style push?
The podcast is here, or here on Mixcloud. Let us know what you think, in the comments below, on Twitter (I’m @housetoastonish and Paul is @ifdestroyed), via email (at firstname.lastname@example.org) or on our Facebook fan page.
