Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
3 Chicks Review Comics is a podcast featuring me (naturally!) with fellow female comics lovers and bloggers Sue from DC Women Kicking Ass, and Maddy from When Fangirls Attack!. Tune in weekly to CSBG Tuesdays at 2pm as we review comics, and discuss hot topics of the week. Don’t forget to subscribe to our cast via iTunes, so you never miss an episode!
Inside this episode! How good is the new Heroes For Hire series? Pretty damn good. How great is the Warriors homage? Is it the best ending of any book this week? Perhaps, but more importantly…Black Widow’s costume is zipped up in every. single. panel. Kelly can die happy now. She-Hulks #2 is Jen and Lyra versus APES! Smart super-powered apes! Need we say more? We probably don’t have to, but we did anyway. CW is entertaining the idea of a live-action Raven series to replace Smallville as it comes to a close…is it really possible Teen Titan Raven will get a television series before Wonder Woman? We talk about why it’s maybe not such a crazy idea after all. Esther Inglis-Arkell wrote a piece on io9 about which comic characters deserve R-rated movies…this naturally spurs a discussion of what characters we’d like to see in R-rated films. We’ve also got everyone’s pick of the week, plus, after the credits…Sue’s deconstruction of comics and soap operas…which soap is the Liefeld era?!
Also, for some reason I cuss a lot in this episode…I don’t know what’s up with that…but apologies in advance to the tender-eared!
Update: Sue is a guest host on this week’s episode of Awesomed By Comics…another comics podcast you should definitely listen to. Great job Sue – and thanks for the shout outs Sue, Evie, and Aaron!
As always special thanks to Nik Furious for our awesome 3 Chicks theme song.
