House to Astonish Episode 91

We’re back with another episode of House to Astonish, where we’re discussing Greg Rucka’s views of Marvel and DC, Marvel’s “Superior” teaser, Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti and Jerry Ordway’s ?Human Bomb?, Ultimate Captain America as US President and the ?Dredd? UK box office success, as well as taking a run through December’s solicitations. We’re also reviewing Team Seven, Ghost and Sword of Sorcery, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook is close to ending it all. All this plus people who sound like Crayola crayons, the optimum way to not watch ?Arrow? and the return of a certain vaguely London-y comics creator impression.


As always, we want to know what you think – particularly this time round, we want to hear your thoughts on:

  • Are comics creators sensible to create new characters on a work-for-hire basis rather than retain creator ownership?
  • Does the upcoming Arrow series have you interested?
  • Are there certain types of stories in which certain types of violence are inappropriate in mainstream Big Two comics?

Please be aware that there was something very strange about the audio this time round which we didn’t discover until after we recorded, which makes us sound like we’re sitting about ten feet away from the microphone, so you might have to turn this one right up. C’est la vie.

The episode is here, or here on Mixcloud. Let us know what you think, either in the comments below, on Twitter, via email or through our Facebook fan page. We’re also available on or through their free iOS or Android apps.

Or you can listen to it right here:

For those of you who make it through to the end, What The Fox can be found here. Enjoy.
