House to Astonish Episode 98

Paul and I are back with a new episode for the new year, and we’ve got a nice little hour and a quarter of comicy chat for you this time out, with discussion of Titan’s new comics line, the Phoenix going digital, the proposed DC “dark” movie, the SHIELD and Hulk TV shows and the Superman appeal decision. We’ve also got reviews of The End Times of Bram & Ben, Superior Spider-Man and Mara, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is suffering from an inferiority complex. All this plus Batman’s successful plastic surgery, an epidemic of constipation and a small cat caught in the middle of a war between estate agents and bacon.


As always, we don’t just want to tell you what we think – we want to know what you think, on anything we’ve talked about in this episode, including (but not limited to):

  • What do you make of the Superman/Siegel decision?
  • Did the last page of Superior Spider-Man take you by surprise?
  • Can DC’s “dark” characters translate well to the big screen?

The podcast is here, or here on Mixcloud.

I’m not Catholic, so I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure the raptures not their thing. Just FYI

Yep, I’ve had quite a lot of people tell me that over the past 24 hours – turns out basing my eschatological theory on Chuck Austen’s X-Men isn’t as good an idea as it may sound.
