In a change-up from his typical birthday challenges, Myles serves up one of his favorite movies that isn’t more aligned with being incredibad and instead chooses a more shadowy path: 1998 the neo-noir science fiction film, Dark City, for this week’s challenge!   Listen Here: Next Week’s Challenge: Watch Star vs The Forces of Evil!

Patrick and Myles’ Comic Book Buy Pile 9/9/15

Neither Patrick nor I anticipate our little fireside chat reviews to be a thing of any kind of regularity, but we had a lot of fun last week sharing the duties over Jem #6. It was sort of an unsaid agreement that we probably wouldn’t try this again unless it was something we both felt extremely passionate about and could tear into. Well, it didn’t take long for that to happen because we began reading Batman #44 around the same time this week and began emphatically texting one another. Patrick & Myles: Batman #44 Myles: Batman #44 interrupts the “Superheavy” arc, touting…

Patrick and Myles’ Comic Book Buy Pile 8/12/15

Patrick: My favorite book this week was the first issue of DC comic’s limited series “Bombshells” written by Marguerite Bennett and art by Marguerite Sauvage.  So this week was super hard to pick a stand-out Top-O-The-Pile pick, because there were so many amazing books to release. I want to get back and talk about Phonogram, Mercury Heat and The Eltingville Club, but the physical release of “Bombshells” was so much fun it won out. If you missed the digital release do pick up this book this week, you will not be disappointed. So here we have a fun and beautiful Elseworlds…

Myles: To the surprise of no one, my pick this week is Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell’s Jem and the Holograms #4. It’s been no secret how much I love the property and this comic, but Thompson and Campbell continue to outdo themselves with each subsequent issue. Thompson’s pacing continues to be one of my favorite aspects of this book. Each story beat moves along nicely, but she’s taking her time developing the characters, their relationships and the “origin story” of Jem and the Holograms. The whole of the first arc is feeling like an hour-long pilot episode as opposed trying…

Patrick: Harrow County #2 The great and frustrating thing about writing and reviewing comics alongside Myles and Drew each week is that we read and enjoy a lot of the same books. This week was no different in that one of our favorite new titles came up and we knew only one of us could review it. I called the proverbial ‘dibs’ on Dark Horse Comics “HARROW COUNTY” #2 by Cullen Bunn and art by Tyler Crook. Just last month we spoke with Cullen Bunn about the series on the podcast, and drilled down further into the history of “Haints”…
