Stay tuned for another passionate comic/fantasy discourse, courtesy of the Comic Shoppe radio show, tomorrow at 7pm eastern. Join Daryll, Max and myself as we shed some light on the following pulp related topics: more discussion centered on a Comics Alliance article entitled, The Racial Politics of Regressive Storytelling; our thoughts on the Red Hulk (and by extension the Red She-Hulk) identity finally being revealed; Marvel's Siege storyline also has its own dramatic climax; theories pertaining to some TV season finales (i.e. Smallville, Fringe, Chuck) as well as some cancellations (hint...Heroes) and lastly, our top graphic novel reads from the previous week. Feel free to drop in for a chat "live" via phone-646-200-0104 or email/IMfirstname.lastname@example.org. And remember...Make yours the Comic Shoppe!
And now, what you've all been waiting for.....some words of wisdom, thanks to The Comic Shoppe's own Daryll B:
1) Bye Bye Heroes: http://www.spinoffonline.com/2010/05/14/its-official-nbc-cancels-heroes/ in other similar news I was shocked to hear Law and Order get the boot also.
2) Wish I could say I was shocked at the latest turn in the DC vs Siegels case, but I not: http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2010/05/superman-attorney-accuses-warner-bros-of-a-smear-campaign/
3) Props to Greg Burgas at CBR on his article I'm a Marvel....and I'm a DC: http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2010/05/16/im-a-marvel-and-im-a-dc/ SO comic fans, do you favor one company over another? And why?
4) You folks know the love I have for the webcomic Comic Critics and this past week's one about the recent comics piracy site shut down nailed the story on the head http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2010/05/14/comic-critics-117/
5) Rest in peace Ryan Choi...I won't paste any of the articles dealing with his "passing" last week but safe to say if you are a comic fan and you heard Dburt's and my arguments about this type of thing on previous shows, it WILL get brought up again.
6) Here is the detailed list of deleted scenes/differences from the adaptations, trailers and commercials of Iron Man 2: http://www.4thletter.net/2010/05/iron-man-2-the-deleted-scenes/ courtesy of Gavok at the 4th Letter.
