House to Astonish Episode 155

House to Astonish comics podcast - Atomic Junk ShopThere’s plenty of comics news to catch up on in this hour-and-a-quarter podcast gabfest with Paul O’Brien and Al Kennedy. We kick off by discussing the sad death of Rich Buckler, then talk a little about the extra issue recently granted to Secret Empire (as well as the execution of the story so far) and the upcoming “Doomsday Clock” story (as well as “The Button” and Watchmen more generally). But wait! There’s more!

We also take a look at the abrupt cancellation of Black Panther and the Crew and what it says about Marvel’s line overall; the announcements of Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa’s Mech Cadet Yu, Ted Naifeh’s Heroines and Tom King and Mitch Gerads’ Mister Miracle; Scott Snyder’s last “proper Batman” story and Sony’s Venom movie.

On top of that, we’ve got reviews of Grrl Scouts: Magic Socks and Generation X and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe shows three heads are not necessarily better than one (or none). All this plus Shogo Warriors, an evil interior decorator and a country that’s not doing an industry.
