Casual Comics Cast – Marvel Comics’ Hawkeye (Ep 202)

Two episodes in two weeks? Looks like someone is making an “effort”. Let’s see how that is working out.

In this episode, the crew discuss the new comics of next week (Week of January 15, 2020), the top selling comics of 2019, and the history of Marvel Comics’ HAWKEYE.

Also, a quick beer review of New Belgium’s Trippel Ale. Spoiler Alert, it’s quite delicious and Michael is staying strong on Dry January

This time:

  • Michael actually reads a comic book (that she got for free 8 months ago)
  • Joe finds a new anti-hero to root for: Trick Shot
  • Pat searches his soul to see if he can accept – if not respect – the existence of Hawkeye the World’s Greatest Archer

Casual Comics Cast – The Reboot

Finally, a new episode of the Casual Comics Cast.

The Casual Comics Cast gets and update for 2020. After a long hiatus:

  • Pat finally reads a comic book.
  • Michael still cannot remember the names of any actors from comic movies or TV shows.
  • Dry January is not going as planned for every member of the podcast.
  • Joe has a cold, rendering him mostly useless during discussions on Image Comics.

Yet, we carry on; including our discussions of Image Comics’ “God Hates Astronauts”, Marvel and DC movies (including “Joker”, “Birds of Prey”, “Suicide Squad”) , and what’s coming to Disney+ Happy New Year, everyone!

Casual Comics Cast – The Reboot

If you’ve been wondering why the updates to the blog have been a little slow, well here’s your answer. Or at least one of the many excuses I have…

The Casual Comics Cast is back and, while not “better than ever” (Mo was a great co-host), still in pretty darn good form.

Please welcome Pat and Michael to the weird world of comic books with me as we cover Captain Marvel – both the movie and the comic book character. Who is Captain Marvel, what is his comic book origin, and how does Carol Danvers fit into all of this? All these questions – and more – are answered to the best of my limited recollection. 

The episode also includes updates on The Hulk, talk about Netflix’s Umbrella Academy, and a couple of random cat attacks.

Listen to the Latest Casual Comics Cast Here!

Comments are always welcome. In upcoming weeks, you’ll hear more as we explore the comic book history of Ant Man, The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, and more. Let us know what you think – both here and on Twitter at @casualcomicsfan

Casual Comics Cast Episode 1: Now Live!

Where did the time go? I thought that I’d take a “short break” to put up a podcast. Little did I know how long it would take to get one up and running. However, thanks to the best co-host (and announcer) in the business, Episode 1 of the Casual Comics Cast is now live.
