House to Astonish Episode 81

Paul O’Brien (The X-Axis) and Al Kennedy (100 Days Of Comics) are back for another episode of House to Astonish, with more comics chat goodness – this time round, we’re talking about the new Scott Pilgrim colour editions, the shake-ups on Avenging Spider-Man, 2000AD‘s digital expansion, the Mars Attacks! musical and Katsuhiro Otomo’s new series and taking a quick look at the new solicitations. We’ve also got reviews of B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth: The Pickens County Horror, Astonishing X-Men and New Deadwardians, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is free to be you and me. All this plus PunisherMAX as a Country & Western ballad, an international firm of surveyors and the Gothiest of all child detectives.

EDIT: And yes, I did say we were looking at news out of Wondercon, when actually I meant ECCC. I would like to enter a plea of It Was Early And I Was Sleepy.

Thanks guy – you mentioned in the last episode that you were getting grief for mispronouncing Chris Samnee’s name… but you still say “Lee-field” or “Lee-feld” instead of “Lie-feld”. Like, “felled by lies”. Liefeld.

Apart from that minor quibble, thanks for the show, which is a highlight of my fortnight, background police sirens and all!
