ReadComics Podcast #007

May 29th, 2008 by Martin

Tonight’s recording was a spur of the moment decision, where we decided hey, why don’t we record a podcast two days before moving? We weren’t too sure of what we were going to talk about, but as always, we ended up having a lot to say…about a whole lot of different things. Some of them even about comics.

Topics included Starman, Wizard World, Marty and Florence’s impending apartment move, getting autographs at conventions, The Sword, Northlanders, God Save the Queen, Neverwhere, Suburban Glamour, Seth Fisher, Will World, Fantastic Four/Iron Man: Big in Japan, Wanted, and a band more horrifying than anything Lovecraft ever wrote.

Serenity: Better Days 3 of 3

May 29th, 2008 by florence

I just got home and looked on my shelf for something to read, and was shocked to discover the final issue of the latest Serenity miniseries untouched! I don’t know how this escaped me when it was bought, but with weekly and sometimes biweekly trips to the comic shop for our household, it must have gotten temporarily lost in the shuffle. In any case, I was thrilled to find it, especially because the chaos of moving in a few days would have undoubtedly sent it forever into an abyss of boxes and inadequate shelving.

Naturally I devoured the issue immediately, and was unsurprised to find it to be awesome. I don’t have much to add to my review of the first issue of this miniseries without spoiling anything new. The art is my favorite style, and the characters were so consistently true that the writing is easy to take for granted. Yay, Joss.
