It’s that time once again… time to see what comics managed to stay on Just Bill’s Favorite Comics Rack throughout 2010! Which publisher leads the pack? What previous Rack-worthy series have returned? What new titles have graced the rack in 2010? Listen in to find out the answers to these questions and more!
[Note: Some issues of Detective Comics featuring Batwoman also made the rack this year, but due to the fact that this episode was done TWICE, it was accidentally skipped and omitted during the actual recording.]
Part 1 – The Baltimore Comic Con has come and gone for another year and in the first part of this episode I share my thoughts on this year’s con.
Part 2 – Ramblings and musings on THE UNIQUES, GUNS OF SHADOW VALLEY, THE LOSERS (comics and film), RED ROBIN, BATGIRL (including a response to WFTT podcast in which I ramble on incessantly about the history of Stephanie Brown and why Batman is (was?) a dick), FABLES, QUEEN & COUNTRY, and the finale to WORLD WAR HULK.
Warning! So many comics discussed in one episode can only lead to — COMICS AVALANCHE!
My thoughts on:THE UNIQUES, FEAR AGENT, HELLBLAZER, SCALPED, FABLES, JACK OF FABLES, QUEEN & COUNTRY, MADAME XANADU, A GOD SOMEWHERE, MAGNETO TESTAMENT, INVINCIBLE, JACK KIRBY’S NEW GODS, INHUMANS A GRAPHIC NOVEL, SAVAGE DRAGON, THE LOSERS and even more!!! It’s so much comic talk that it’s actually DANGEROUS!!! Watch out for the avalanche!!!
