House to Astonish Episode 99

It’s a podcast weekend, and Paul and I have got an hour and a half of discussion of DC’s chaotic creative assignments, Keith Giffen’s potential departure from Legion of Super-Heroes, Kyle Baker’s free graphic novels, Marvel NOW!’s free digital collections and the Doctor Strange movie, as well as a look at April’s solicitations. We’ve also got reviews of Uncanny X-Force, The Answer and Threshold, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is full of beans. All that, plus a slim gorilla, Lamp and Plinth and how to hijack an aeroplane with a graphic novel.


As always, we want to know what you think of the things we’ve talked about, which this time round would include (but not be limited to):

  • Do DC’s quick-changes of creative teams make you less enthusiastic about their books?
  • Who would you want to see play the lead in a Doctor Strange movie?
  • What comics have done really distinctive and memorable science fiction/outer space settings?

The podcast is here, or here on Mixcloud.

Or just listen to it right here!
