House to Astonish, Scotland’s premier comic book podcast, comes to the Atomic Junk Shop! After several years of being syndicated at Comics Should Be good, Paul O’Brien and I have joined the rest of the gang here to bring you comic book news and reviews (and some messing around with the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe).
This time round, we’re gearing up for our big 150th episode, with discussion of Charlie Adlard becoming the UK’s Comics Laureate; more details on Marvel’s Monsters Unlimited event; Scott Snyder reteaming with Greg Capullo; Kieron Gillen and Kev Walker’s upcoming Doctor Aphra series; the impending relaunches of Nova and Batwoman; Warren Ellis’s revamp of the Wildstorm universe; America Chavez’s 2017 ongoing; Thunderbolts anniversary stories and LionForge’s new superhero universe. We’ve also got reviews of Reborn and Mosaic, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe has eight arms to hold you (even if it actually only has six). All this plus Jeff’s Sandwich Shack, hand-whittled comics and the difference between a ghost and a g-g-g-ghost.
The podcast is here, and here on Mixcloud, and available via the embedded player below. Let us know what you think, through the comments below, on Twitter (where I’m @housetoastonish and Paul is @ifdestroyed), via email (housetoastonish at gmail), or on our Facebook fan page.
We’ve got some fab shirts on sale on our Redbubble store, of course, and if you don’t have one yet, you should buy one, and if you do have one yet, you should buy another one.
If you’re in the UK and attending Thought Bubble on the 5th and 6th of November, then come and see the House to Astonish/SILENCE! panel at 11.50 on Saturday the 5th. It’s going to be the usual collection of shambolic absurdity, daft games, barely logical Q&A, singing, costumes, all that kind of thing. Thought Bubble show tickets are available from their website.
