House to Astonish - Episode 155 - Punched To A Crisp
Al and Paul have been away for a little while longer than usual, but that just means that there's plenty for them to talk about. They 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); the upcoming "Doomsday Clock" story (as well as "The Button" and Watchmen more generally); 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, then turn their attention to reviews of Grrl Scouts: Magic Socks and Generation X. The Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe doesn't work, it just makes you worse. Sorry.
