Constantine – Triple Pilot Review

November 6, 2014

We’ve essentially watched three Constantine pilots in the last couple of weeks. Firstly the original never-aired pilot which set up a series featuring Liv as a main character…

Then we watched the retooled pilot after hearing that there were a load of changes…wish we’d have realised we could just rewatch the last ten minutes.

Finally, since Episode 1 did nothing but set up and then immediately knock down a status quo, it was actually Episode 2 that would act as a pilot for what the show would be moving forward.

We give our opinions on all three.

Sigh…

Listen Now!








Big shout out to Antonio of torgos.deviantart.com for providing the original pencils used in my Constantine slide for this weeks video.

The Thwipping Boys tackle the pick of the week’s comics, including Ultimate Ultimates and an intriguing new creator-owned Vertigo series from Dan Abnett with The New Deadwardians.

We continue our retrospective looks back at Watchmen, Batman and Identity Crisis, check out the horror side of the DCU with Justice League Dark & I,Vampire and get ready for Avengers Vs X-Men with #0. It ain’t off to a good start folks.

Ep 29 Comics

 

Show Notes for Ep. 29 – The Order of Dumbass
00:33 – Comixology were giving it away for free, so we checked out the first part of THE CURSE OF SHAZAM BACKUP.
05:15 – From Vertigo and Dan Abnett comes THE NEW DEADWARDIANS #1. Socio-political commentary featuring the undead? Yes please.
12:27 – We weren’t sure what the point of an Issue Zero was before this week. Reading AVENGERS Vs. X-MEN #0 didn’t really change that.
25:21 – Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic continue to wow with ULTIMATE ULTIMATES #8.
36:35 – If AQUAMAN #7 is any indication this series is on something of a slide.
42:24 – BATMAN #508 from June 1994 featured Azrael.
51:25 – We thought reviewing Alan Moore’s masterpiece might be hard work and WATCHMEN CHAPTER V is where we start to be proved right.
63:42 – JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #7 started the first part of a crossover with a certain DC title.
71:01 – I,VAMPIRE #7 features an appearance with a certain “Dark Team”…who could that be?
81:07 – As Jon has said before, he knew who killed Sue Dibney despite never having read IDENTITY CRISIS #7. Or did he?
