S5 E243 “You Mean Like Stanley?”
It’s Wednesday! New books means a ton of excitement around the shop… only things are a little more reserved this week. As we’re sure you have heard by now, the comic book world has lost one of it’s true icons with the passing of Stan Lee. As Victor points out, today is the first Comic Book release day without Stan Lee with us. Think about that for a second…
Despite our sadness, there were plenty of great books to read with this week’s shipment. So many in fact, that the guys had to be cut off in terms of how many they were allowed to discuss. The line had to be drawn somewhere, but earning a spot in the acrylic this week: Superman #5 from DC Comics (02:37) William Gibson’s Alien 3 #1 from Dark Horse Comics (05:00) Cosmic Ghost Rider #5 from Marvel Comics (08:39 Dark Ark #11 from AfterShock Comics (12:33)
As I said, things got out of hand and we should really consider putting a limit on the number of Honorable Mentions that the guys are allowed to give out, because they were passing them out like Halloween candy this week! Victor has chosen to honor Murder Falcon #2 from BOOM! Studios (15:01), Hit-Girl #10 from Image Comics (18:47), Bitter Root #1 from Image Comics (23:27), and Jook Joint #2 from Image Comics (24.51). Ryan selected Mister Miracle #12 from DC Comics (16:56), Firefly #1 from BOOM! Studios (21:38), Jook Joint #2 from Image Comics (24:51), Fantastic Four #3 from Marvel Comics (28:20).
Black, White and Read All Over is a weekly preview / review show highlighting a selection of new comic book titles hitting stores this week.
