Comic Cast: Equinox


It may be summer but the Comic Cast don’t take no holidays. We’ve spent all week reading comics and drinking sangria in the park in in order to review Fred Van Lente and Dennis Calero’s X-Men Noir, Brian Michael Bendis’ Halo: Uprising, Grant Morrison’s Final Crisis, Matt Forsythe’s ojingogo. Not to mention a veritabal feast of new Irish comics including Peter Loftus and Deirdre De Barra’s Downpour, Hilary Lawlors’ Superhilbo! #1, The Longstone Comics Anthology #2 and John Robbins’ The Monkey-Head Complaint / Inside Outsiders. We also lock heads over Terminator Salvation as well as discussing the latest comics news including BOOM! Studios new comic Die Hard: Year one with art by our very own Stephen Thompson, the triumphant return of Spiderman: Clone Saga and Spidey’s arrival on the boards of Broadway no less! So put on your shades – this one is going to be bright.

  1. Y’know Craig; there’s a big difference between a ‘review’ and ‘describing-the-plot-and-end-of-the-story’!

    Transformers was diabolical by the way. Never saw Salvation bu it sounds like i didn’t miss much.

  2. […] a cornucopia of reviews in the latest installment of the Comic Cast […]

  3. Luke Says:
