Comic Couch 57


On this weeks very exciting show we do something altogether new for us. We review a book the week before it ships. It is not just any book either, it is one of the hottest independent titles in the country right now! This book, of course, is Chew #3. We also review JSA #29, this is the one where Bill Willingham, Matt Sturges and Jesus Morino take over as the new creative team. Last but not least we take a look at The Sinister Spider-Man from Brian Reed and Chris Bachalo. There is much discussion about the happenings at last weekend's San Diego Comic-Con.

Music by The Dropkick Murphys, Wall of Voodoo, and Mushroomhead.

Comic Couch 56

What to say.....?

As the guy who has to do this write up it is odd for me to do it this week. I wasn't part of the show proper. I was in the hospital. I think these guys reviewed a few books. Hell if I can remember which ones. If you do listen to the show pay attention to the las 4 minutes or so for a special message from me.

Music by The Dropkick Murphys, Dee-Lite, and Slipknot.

Comic Couch Episode 55

And so the love fest ends....sorta

This week we tried to pick good books, and only partially succeeded. We usually choose books sight unseen, and this time it bit us in the ass. We review Creepy #1, Punisher #7, and Blackest Night #1. Also we learn that Joe is not a sexual Mr. Potato Head.

Music By The Dropkick Murphys, Les Miserables, and Led Zeppelin.

This week we review Dark X-Men The Beginnings #1, Chew #1, and Wednesday Comics #1. The conversation goes all over the place, even some places it shouldn't. What else would you expect from your friends at the Comic Couch?

Hint: we talk about Red Skull's Penis.
