House to Astonish Episode 78

It’s been a kind of unpleasant couple of weeks for comics news, and we’ve got lots of discussion of it all for you in this week’s podcast – we talk about Before Watchmen, Gary Friedrich’s lawsuit against Marvel, Tony Moore’s lawsuit against Robert Kirkman, DC’s creative reshuffles and the results of their readership survey. We’ve also got reviews of Thief of Thieves, Conan the Barbarian and Winter Soldier and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe goes West. All this plus the scripture of the year 2070, ‘roid freaks and the Punisher’s desperate search for manufactured drama.
