We mix things up this week by jumping aboard the precursor to Avengers Vs. X-Men and picking up a book we had all previously agreed to drop. We discuss an initiative which has the potential to bring a lot of new readers into comics in the UK. Plus, we check out some DCnU #5s!
Show Notes for Ep. 17 – Timeslide!
14:14 – About the most interesting thing we discovered about AVENGERS: X-SANCTION #1 was that it looked like it had been drawn by Beryl Cook.
30:46 – After dropping the book with issue 3 we decided we missed Slade Wilson, so we picked up DEATHSTROKE #4.
42:07 – The story is finally starting to come together with STORMWATCH #5.
58:36 – SWAMP THING #5 continues to be an excellent series, despite some uncharachteristically clunky dialogue.
70:53 – ANIMAL MAN #5 sees the first arc of Jeff Lemire’s run come to a spectacular end.
84:45 - After reading ACTION COMICS #5 we’re still not completely convinced of why we’re hanging around.
