Drunk on Comics Podcast 273: Superman’s Martha-stache
The usual suspects came together this week to review some comics and unpack the mountain of news that came out SDCC, but not before make fun of Tony for hurting himself during his drunken weekend escapades.
For Off the Shelf this week Linz reviewed Rum Row #1. This is an independent comic written by Andrew Maxwell with art by Michele Bandini and colors by Derek Dow. Rum Row is a Prohibition era tale where the speakeasies are located in dirigibles and hot air balloons. Drinking. In the sky. Battles. In the sky. What the hell else could you ask for? The Kickstarter for issue 2 is going on right now! So make sure you check it out!
Tony reviewed Cable #3, which still has him on the fence and Iceman #3, which he loved! Iceman has really come in to his own in more ways than one, and Tony really appreciated they tackled to mutant issue in this issue but also made it an allegory for Bobby coming out. He also appreciated how they are finally letting Bobby come in to his higher powers in a way that seems more natural than they have in the past. Definitely a must-get for any X-men fan.
In news the week the gang covered all the news that came out of San Diego Comic Con the weekend before. Ok, not everything, because there was a lot. A good portion of time was spent talking about the many trailers that came out during the weekend. We are not going to list them here. Actually, there is so much they covered that you might as well just get listening to find out what it was.
Booze and a Book this week was Shirtless Bear Fighter #2 paired DKML from Founders.
