Episode 26: Air Balls, Airboy, and Americatown

This week, Alan and Brooks talk missing the boat on Americatown from Boom! Studios. However, thanks to Jeff Lemire, there's plenty good to talk about with the first arc finale of Descender -- our favorite comic of 2015.

Additionally, the two continue to push the latest Interview Spectacular, agree with Ashley about Airboy, and celebrate becoming friends with the Houston Rockets General Manager.

Discussed this week: Robin Son of Batman #2; Morning Glories #47; Phonogram The Immaterial Girl #1; Descender #6; Bloodshot Reborn #5; Secret Wars #5

Next week's #1 issues:

  • House of M #1 - The House of Magnus controls all, having crushed all resistance to their reign. Magneto rules with an iron-fist, while his children and grandchildren live their lives as royals-with all the privileges and pit-falls that come with that title. But is Magneto's control as all-encompassing as it seems? And what happens to a conqueror when there is no one left to conquer?
  • Young Terrorists #1 - What if 'The Smoking Man' from The X-Files were a real person, and his daughter found out what he did for a living? The daughter of an assassinated globalist kingpin breaks out of an internment camp and leads her fellow escaped prisoners in a battle against an elitist conspiracy of shadow governments, megabanks, and military juntas in this edgy and subversive sci-fi thriller. Incendiary writer Matt Pizzolo and striking newcomer Amancay Nahuelpan unleash this tour-de-force that fearlessly assaults politics-as-usual. Young Terrorists continues the legacy of DMZ and The Invisibles as it manically rips the scab off life under the new world order and revels in the pus underneath.
