House to Astonish Episode 115 (and 114…)
After a few weeks away, Paul and I are very pleased to be able to say that we’re back, and we’ve got news about Stan Lee Media’s latest lawsuit, Fox’s Marvel movie universe, the X-Men movie after next, Warners’ casting of Wonder Woman (and yes, we know her name’s not Godot, that was just for a rubbish joke, we promise), Marvel’s digital trades giveaway and the new Wolverine & the X-Men and Magneto series. We’ve also got reviews of Inhumanity, Rover Red Charlie and Black Science, and the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe is retro chic. On top of that, we’ve got interviews with Al Ewing, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Kieron Gillen which we recorded at Thought Bubble. All this plus Superman eating a puppy, scratch & sniff numbering, the sound of fighting geese and the true story of what killed all the Romans.
We’ve also got the previous episode, Episode 114, for you – this is our five-year anniversary episode, with a crossover between us and Wait, What’s Graeme McMillan and Jeff Lester. Plenty of rambling here, and lots of laughs. It’s our longest ever episode, and a little self-indulgent, but if you can’t be self-indulgent on your fifth birthday, when can you be?
As usual, we’d like to hear what you think about any of the things we’ve talked about in either episode, including (but not limited to):
- What do you think of the casting of Wonder Woman in Man of Steel 2?
- What comics creators from the past five years do you think are ones to keep an eye on in future, or have disappeared without reason?
- Will Marvel’s digital trade giveaways make you more likely to try out the .NOW issues?
Or just listen to it here!
Let us know what you think, in the comments below, on Twitter (where I’m @housetoastonish and Paul’s @ifdestroyed), via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or on our Facebook fan page. Please do also leave iTunes reviews if that’s your thing, and remember that we have a range of very swish t-shirts and hoodies available via our Redbubble store.
Thanks for the past five years, and here’s to the future.
