On this episode, Michael and I are joined by our resident DC Comics “expert”, Ryan as we try and get our arms around Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey.
- We’re covering TV, comics, and movies with discussions on:
- The most recent DC Comic “Birds of Prey” one-shot, written by Brian Azzarello
- The confusingly (re-)named movie “Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey”
- And, “Joker’s Favor”, the first appearance of Harley Quinn, which happened on the TV show, “Batman: The Animated Series”
We’re discussing all these and more, so settle in and enjoy the show.
On the Easter edition, we discuss the most famous Rabbit Super Heroes in comics history.
That’s right. Rabbits who are also super heroes. That’s a thing that happened in comics.
Plus, while we’re all on lockdown, it seems like a good time to dig into the back issues, finally reading the trade paperbacks we’ve had on our shelves, meaning to read (or re-read), but have never had the time. We’re discussing:
- Fables – DC Comics. Written by Bill Willingham
- Hawkeye: My Life as a Weapon – Marvel Comics. Written by Matt Fraction
And, with Ryan sitting in, you’re going to get more actual, real DC Comics knowledge than usual on this time around.
Settle in, have a beverage, and enjoy the show!
I don’t read comics nearly as often as I used to, in case that’s not been obvious to this point. As a casual comics fan, I’ve been pleased to find that there are quite a lot of options out there for readers who want to “check out” free comics without committing their hard earned dollars to an actual purchase.
There are a lot of ways to read free comics online. However, for today, I’m just going to focus on one platform – Amazon Prime Reading – for a few reasons:
- You can read a lot more comics for free from other sites, but if you’re reading comics people uploaded, you’re ripping off the comic companies and creators, and you should knock it off.
- I don’t like to read comics in my browser, and the experience of reading comics on a tablet is great on the Kindle App.
- If the news is to be believed, Amazon is taking over the world and approximately 112% of Americans now have Prime subscriptions – so it’s probably the quickest, most accessible for you if you just happened upon this article.
Here we are, at the end of the line for this wonderful Marvel mini-series from the 80s, starring my all time favorite married couple – Vision and the Scarlet Witch. And, it’s been a heck of a ride. Let’s check in on my favorite Marvel sweethearts and see what kind of family drama awaits the duo into this month.
“Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself…!” opens with a mystery. A figure clad entirely in white climbs Mount Wundagore. The narrator is content to call him the “White Pilgrim” at the outset.
And, you know what? Snark about the stories all you like, haters. But there’s no denying one thing – that’s a gorgeous splash page. Read the rest of this entry
Issues #1 and #2 of Vision and the Scarlet Witch are in the bag – review-wise. And, I’m loving them as much as I did the first (through 30th) time I read them. Even though it’s been about two decades since the last time I read this series, I’m still madly in love with the craziness of Marvel mini-series from the 80’s.
Coming into the third issue of this four-issue miniseries, we’ve come to expect a pretty even split of action and family drama from the Vision and the Scarlet Witch mini-series. “Blood Brothers” doesn’t disappoint. Read the rest of this entry
