First Issue Club
Do you want to start reading comics but are too intimidated about where to start? This is your podcast. Have you been reading comics your whole life but never had anyone to share your passion with? This is your podcast. With a flood of new issues, events and characters happening weekly, First Issue Club is your most current compass for what to know about and be reading.
The club returns from episode 100 with a ton of comic news. Then the long awaited Second Coming gets "saved" by Ahoy Comics. Finally Reaver blows up on Image for a violence soaked tail of medieval mayhem.
The entire club skipped town for the 4th to spend time with our families, so while we couldn’t record a regular episode, comic book reading must go on! Because of this important rule of life, Mike D recorded an emergency voicemail episode where he breaks down his top four first issues of last week. Hope you state-side clubbers all had a wonderful holiday weekend as well, and to our overseas friends, we have no excuse for this really random weird episode. Please forgive us.
This week The Club takes a breaks from comics to celebrate 100 episodes with 100 minutes of non-sense. Highlights include, but aren’t limited to: our first sponsor, parody songs, call-ins, commentary on our first episode, DC cover prices, regrets, emotions, thank you’s, and what’s next.
In this episode the club discusses whats up with DC’s Vertigo imprint, before getting into Silver Surfer Black from Marvel Comics, and Sonata out on Image Comics. We also question wether we’ve gone too far as Marvel “True Believers”, and argue over Bruce Springsteens new album, because why not?
The club fumbles over the title of IDW’s new ROAD OF BONES, and ultimately find ourselves miles from our own road of cohesive conversation.
