Episode 190 – Marvel Now-er

Share

Marvel Now is almost… now, so the CBQ gang (StevieD, SaroSpice, TonyL, Steele!, and the Scavenger) revisits the earliest rounds of Marvel Now previews. What titles are the Qties looking forward to? Which don’t look so good? And who else deserves a relaunch?

Note: this episode was recorded prior to the release of the solicits for “Thunderbolts” and “Avengers Arena”.

Share

 

It’s been one year since the DC Universe rebooted, so StevieD, TonyL, Steele!, SaroSpice, the Scavenger, and PattyBoom convene to look back at the past year and decide: what is working? what ain’t working? who is missing? and who needs to go away?

By the way, remember the big reveal at the end of the last AvX book where the kewpie doll alien known as THE WATCHER showed up in the last panel and presumably it was…awesome? Well, I guess The Watcher had had enough and high-tailed it outta there because it’s nowhere to be seen in this issue. Read the rest of this entry →

See what I did there, queerkateers?! I took a silly 90′s film starring Charlie Sheen and I referenced it with the second issue of HAWKEYE, featuring TWO HAWKEYES! (it’s true! it’s a fact!) WINNING!     

So, yeah, #2. Hawkeye. Put on your purple tinted glasses with the special lenses, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!

Steele and Scavenger drink beer and interview Pat Killik, creator of the acclaimed new independent comic, Shepperton’s Waltz.  He discusses process, ideas, the artistry, and what it takes to create your own comic book and comic book company! Plus, upcoming comics and his search for new artists.

 

 

Angus Shepperton is a lost soul, doing what he can to scrape out an existence in the colony planet mining town of Hillsborough.  When the miners unwittingly unleash a full scale attack on the town, Shep is left as the last one standing.  Now the fate of the Hillsborough townsfolk and the rest of the planet depends on the town drunk’s ability to rise to the challenge while he indulges his greatest weakness.
