Episode 55: Mockingbird Delights

This week, Brooks and Alan delight in the new Marvel comic formula with the release of Mockingbird #1. Pleasantly surprised, the two praise sound art and storytelling in a solid debut.

Elsewhere, Preacher and Outcast get premiere dates, while Civil War gets a second trailer (with a taste of Spider-Man and some Bucky rumors). What to expect from The Killing Joke animated film and the new apocalypse horsemen.

Other books discussed: Descender; Paper Girls; Vision; and Nailbiter.

Next week's Debut Review(s):

  • International Iron Man - Who is Tony Stark, really? Since learning that he was adopted as a baby, this question has cast a shadow over Stark's life. Now, it is time to uncover what his legacy truly is, a journey that will carry Tony into new directions as a man and as a super hero. Alongside his strange new quasi-ally Doctor Doom, Iron Man will discover new things about the Marvel Universe he didn't know existed before! A character deconstruction from Bendis and Maleev along the lines of their award-winning.
