One Shot #16: Geek Media Inventory

With the world around him determined to make everything into a competition, this week Blake refuses to play the game. Instead, he talks about the many, many comic book properties currently in development as TV shows and movies, and explains why — no matter what you feel about any project in particular — it’s all very, very good.

And what’s cool this week? The revelation in Justice League 3000 #4 has Blake downright intrigued.

You’re also all invited to join Blake’s latest adventures in Twitter-based humor @SurviveEnglishC.

In the picks this week, Mike was into Green Arrow #30, Kenny picks Flash: Rebirth #6 and Blake gives it up for Tiny Titans #25.

Episode 59: Western Comics

This week, as per your requests, the guys dive into Western Comics! Why does Blake love them? Why doesn’t Chase? We touch upon great western heroes from Jonah Hex to Bat Lash to The Lone Ranger to Zorro to less orthodox western yarns like Preacher, The Ballad of Sleeping Beauty, The Kents and The Dark Tower. (And if you want our thoughts on the new Zorro comic, check our our mini-Episode 58.5.) After a feedback-sparked debate about the quality of children’s comics, the guys get to this week’s picks. Blake chimes in for Fantastic Comics #24 — the beginning of The Next Issue Project — and Chase starts to celebrate Fantastic Four #554… until he remembers reading it.
