House to Astonish Episode 118

With one thing and another, we're a little behind, so apologies for the slight delay in getting this episode to you. This time round, we're discussing Marvel's announcements, including a variety of new series, the relaunch of the Ultimate books, and... something to do with Spider-Man? We're also looking at Lex Luthor taking the reins of the Justice League, DC's second Aquaman series, and the Vertigo anthology CMYK, and whizzing through all of the announcements coming out of the Image Expo. We're also reviewing Black Widow, Black Dynamite and EGOs (in the context of which we fail to notice that the artist and colourist are the same person), and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is in fact only a clockwork toy to be wound up by God or the Devil. All this plus Prisoner: Deep Space 9, What If: Essex and Rich Johnston's gang of comics gossip urchins.


As usual, we want to know what you think on a variety of subjects that we've discussed, including but not limited to:

  • What are you most excited about coming out of the Image Expo?
  • Should the Ultimate universe continue or be put out to pasture?
  • What place does the Icon imprint have in the comics world of 2014?
