House to Astonish Episode 90
It’s been a relatively quiet couple of weeks for comics news, but Paul and I have still got plenty of discussion on the second month of Marvel NOW! teasers, the upcoming Morbius series, Jim Starlin’s possible rapprochement with Marvel, the CW’s new Wonder Woman pilot, the return of Elfquest, the new creative team on X-Men and the newly-unveiled Avengers roster. We’ve also got reviews of Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt, Steed & Mrs Peel and Phantom Stranger, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is so sad, so very very sad.
As usual, we want to know what you think of the things we’ve been discussing on the podcast, particularly (but not limited to):
- If Jim Starlin were to get to make a return to Marvel, how should other creators’ Thanos stories be treated? Is it right that only Starlin’s stories should be “real” Thanos stories?
- Are the CW sensible to be trading off the camp associations of the last Wonder Woman TV show against the brand value of the character’s name?
- In honour of one of our reviewed books this week, what’s the single worst issue you’ve read this year?
