Jermaine, Stephen, Griffin and Riley use the last new release day on the Mayan calendar to sell a lot of books, eat a lot of sushi, and then review the nominees for the 2nd Annual Acme Awards, follow up on some of the comic news stories they’ve mulled over on the last few episodes, dive into one of the biggest stacks of Comics at the Table you’ve ever seen, and congratulate Lord Retail on getting Mark Waid on board for Comic Book City Con!
Jermaine, Stephen, Griffin and Jody swap out Comics at the Table in favor of headline news for this Friday’s show, taking time to talk over the release of Gail Simone from Batgirl, Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette’s decision to leave Swamp Thing and Image’s choice to no longer do reprints for established, best-selling series!
Hawkguy writer Matt Fraction makes his third appearance on the show to talk to Jermaine and Stephen about writing a superhero comic about an Avenger that also just happens to be a guy trying to make the world a better place, launching the Fantastic Four and the FF in such a way that it pleases readers new and old alike, and the status of his creator-owned series for Image, Satellite Sam, with artist Howard Chaykin!
Stephen, Griffin, Riley and Michael get back on deadline as they discuss the news out of San Diego (Minimum Carnage, Marvel movies, Locke & Key and new Image #1’s), what they thought of the Dark Knight Rises and all of the Comics at the Table!
DJ Griffin Kale mans the board while Jermaine, Stephen, Frank and Adam recap the Image Expo, gush over the new Avengers trailer, and get you caught up on everything you need to know for Avengers vs. X-Men, starting up in just a few weeks!
Jermaine, Stephen, Frank and Adam chat with Glory and Hell Yeah writer Joe Keatinge on the day of Gloriana’s debut about his time behind the scenes at Image Comics, learning under the tutelage of Eric Stephenson, and the concept that’s been brewing in his head since he was 10 years old!
Then the guys dust off their non-existent legal degrees to discuss the lawsuits surrounding Ghost Rider and the Walking Dead!
Finally, they have watched Comic Book Men. And, yes, they let you know what they thought.
