House to Astonish Episode 167

House to Astonish

Been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you without a dope… comics podcast to step to? NYCC was last weekend, and there’s a whole ton of news just waiting to be chewed over, so it would be rude of us not to do that, frankly. On the new House to Astonish, Paul and I remember Norm Breyfogle and Carlos Ezquerra, and talk about all the news out of New York Comic Con.

And what a lot of news there is! We’re talking Die, Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt, Wonder Comics, Humanoids’ new imprint H1, Avengers: No Road Home, Man Without Fear, Buffy, Three Jokers, The Girl In The Bay, Marvel’s 80th anniversary series, Oni Press’s webcomics portal, Champions, Savage Sword of Conan, Captain Marvel, Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man, Star Trek: Q Conflict, Flash: Year One, Pearl, Out Of The Blue, Guts, Share Your Smile and r(ender). We’ve also got reviews of These Savage Shores and Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is fast as lightning. All this plus My 1.5 Presidents, a pint of bees and Deadly Bannister of Kung Fu.

The podcast is here, or here on Mixcloud, or available via the embedded player below. Let us know what you think, in the comics below, on Twitter, via email, or on our Facebook fan page. And remember, sandals and sunhats are sometimes foods, but a good t-shirt is forever, so why not check out our Redbubble store?

    Yay, I’m glad you’re back. I dig your tangents, honestly – they always go to bizarre places. And I hope DC collects the Tom Scioli Wonder Twins story from the back of Cave Carson, as it was very brief but very weird. Maybe it will make you Brits appreciate the strangeness of Zan and Jayna a bit more! 🙂
