House to Astonish Episode 107

New month, new podcast, and Paul and I have got comicsy natterings for you on Rebellion's limited Zenith hardcover (and the legal implications thereof), Paul Jenkins leaving Marvel and DC for BOOM!, the ever-expanding cast of Guardians of the Galaxy and Marvel's wranglings with Fox over the cinematic versions of Quicksilver.

As always, we want to know what you think of the issues of the day, including (but certainly not limited to):

  • Do you think that moving to BOOM! will help Paul Jenkins bring his A-game? What are your favourite and least favourite comics by Jenkins?
  • What do you think it takes to launch a successful new concept? Is a high-profile creative team necessary, or does it need to be tied in to big events?
  • Given the high price tag it carries anyway, does the uncertain legal position with regard to the Zenith collection make you less likely to put down cash for it?


We've also got reviews of Supermag, The Wake and X-Men, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is a first-level magic user. All this plus Hose to Astonish, Ronan Keating the Accuser and golfing in a general sense.

The podcast is here, or here on Mixcloud.
