Panel of the Week – Murder, Mustaches, and Mutants

Panel-DaredevilHeaderEvery Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, Martians piloted airplans. This week, ants are piloting sugar cubes.

Marvel announced their post Secret Wars line-up, and it’s kind of overwhelming. I’m not opposed to changes, but a new Hulk? A new Star-Lord? It’s a little too much at once. I mean, I’m still adjusting to the new Batman.

Still, as long as I can keep buying comics drawn by the likes of Chris Burnham and Chris Samnee, I think I can deal.

From Kirby to card games, this is Panel of the Week! [Read more…]

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 30] : Anaprez Rickwalker

prez

We’re Eagle Free in ’73 this week as the boys talk about the President Teen in 2015. What do we mean? It’s difficult to say. After a look back at Prez and its definitive take on Dracula, we look to the future to see if this new relaunch holds up. So far, without Dracula, the answer is a tentative “no sir.” Then, after creating a Smokey the Bear for a new generation, we crawl into the muck of Marvel and DC’s big time event books, Convergence and Secret Wars (not to be confused with Divergent or the Iraq war).

Prez Dracula Watch – Month 1 – No Sightings.

PLUS! Pod challenges, New Pompei, Doom as your God, and our plans to make sure Justin can ask Jim Lee about Zealot again some day, even if it means Gordy’s imprisonment.

Panel of the Week – Wolverines, Hashtags, and Martians

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, everyone compared origin stories. This week, frogs are referencing Star Trek. 

It’s a light week of panels, but quality is always better than quantity.

From to Batcows to Forensic Frogs, this is Panel of the Week!

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 29] : Dairy to be Nipotent w/ Kuen Tang

witchblade

We start things off this week with an impromptu discussion about a weirdo who slobbers on iced cream for a living, and that quickly spirals into an exploration of his comic book potential. Could The Aerator end up as Steam-Man’s number one villain? Is he a ten? Does being a ten make him a one?! Tune in and find out. Then we have an awesome chat with the incomparable letterer, adventurer, and activist, Kuen Tang. She’s been everywhere and done everything, and we talk about it all. Listen to the interview, then head on over to her site – kuentang.com – and check out her past and future works.

Also! Don’t cross the creams, the challenges of Witchblade hair and Liefeld feet, nature’s barreled water, and spooky Russian babies.

Panel of the Week – Batsuits, Blind Chefs and Bending Over Backwards

batmanEvery Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, Little Marvel ruled the roost. This week, it’s all about radioactive pigs.

With over Convergence, Secret Wars in high gear, and a new Batman, my pull list is more interesting than ever. It’s the greatest thing that’s happened to my wallet, but it’s definitely been fun for me.

Panel of the Week – Fisticuffs, Front-End Loaders, and Flexibility

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, Magic Man granted wishes. This week, Skottie Young is drawing everything.

Lately, my favorite comics have been the silliest titles in my pull lists. When events are mucking up serious storylines, being ridiculous is the only way to go.

Panel of the Week – Pranks, Punches, and Public Transportation

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, Spider-Ham became a food blogger. This week, the food is fighting back.

DC and Marvel’s events are currently ruling the comic book shelves, which is causing me a fair amount of frustration. I don’t like event comics; they interupt my ongoings, wind up costing me a lot of money, and almost never pay off in an interesting way.

But man, some of those Secret Wars tie-ins have been freaking fantastic.

This crop of panels is a little bit angry. I promise, that wasn’t on purpose.

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 26] : Olly Olly Odin Folk w/ Tyler Chin-Tanner

angela

The spirits (or thetans) are with us on this week’s podcast as we spend the first half of the show unpacking some of the mystery behind the Angela character, formerly of Image but now a Marvel property. How does that happen? We’re still not *entirely* sure, but it does. After that the boys sit down with their guest Tyler Chin-Tanner, a writer and artist who’s currently out promoting the Kickstarter campaign for his latest project, The Broken Frontier Anthology. They talk about Tyler’s comics history, the realities of small-press publishing, managing a Kickstarter campaign, and just about everything in between.

Panel of the Week – Superboys, Slobberin’, and Spider-Pranks

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, Captain America said no to democracy. This week, The Thing is cooking dinner.

Here’s a confession: I spend more time thinking about the superheroes I want to hang out with than the heroes I’d like to fight alongside. Even in my fantasies, I know that mauling mooks with Batman would only end in my embarrassment. I’d rather watch bad movies with Kitty Pryde, or play video games with Booster Gold. We might not make the world a better place, but we’d probably have a good time.
