Comic Timing – Episode 178: Batman V Superman V Comic Timing

BvSTrinity

STAY DOWN. Our Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice episode has arrived! And boy oh boy is it a whopper. Brandon Christopher, Raphael Soohoo, Brent and Ian have put together just about three hours of content for you all to enjoy, both live from Philadelphia right after Ian and Brandon saw the movie, and back in the studio a few days later via Skype. Brent presents a thesis on why the current movie Superman is so divisive among the geek community, we talk as a group on whether or not Batman should wield guns, how awesome Wonder Woman is and how she’s the best part of the movie, Lex Luthor’s manic tendencies, the whole Doomsday thing, earning the respect of the world, Alfred’s usefulness, Lois’ usefulness, Zack Snyder’s usefulness, and a whole lot more.

Fair warning: if you’re looking for a 100% glowing review, I suggest you look elsewhere. Like Raging Bullets, because they’re awesome. But if you’re looking for a critical eye that doesn’t dip into yelling at each other, stick around Comic Timing. You’ve come to the right place.

Comic Timing – Episode 177: Deadpool Review

It’s time to make the chimichangas! Brent and Ian are joined by longtime friend of the show, and Supershow Episode veteran, Steve Katz, as they review the Rated R Superstar, Deadpool! Get ready for a pretty even-handed review of the film, as not everybody was completely thrilled with it. But some were! Two distinct opinions within with civil conversation throughout. Madness, right? Anywho, of course there’s madness! It’s Deadpool! And oh, spoilers, because duh. Then, the episode concludes with some quick talk about DC’s upcoming Rebirth.

Comic Timing – Episode 176: A Raging Review of 2015

ant-man-1435327553

Just like that, 2015 has shrunk in between the atoms, never to be seen again! In its place stands 2016, which also happens to be the 10th year of Comic Timing. And what better way to start off this milestone year than with two of Brent and Ian’s mos regular guests: Sean Whelan and Jim Segulin of the Raging Bullets podcast! The crew of four go over Secret Wars and Convergence, some of their favorite comics and comic related media of this past year, and some things that are older than that but were discovered in 2015. There’s also a decent amount of Star Wars talk to be had, including everyone’s (except for Jim who hasn’t seen it yet) overall impressions of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Plus, random segues into talking about meatloaf the food, Meatloaf the singer, and Fuller House. And, shock of shocks, we mention Fant4stic. It’s a grand old time, I tells ya! WHATISH!

Comic Timing – Episode 169: Daredevil, Creator Rights and Convergence

set_daredevil_netflix_640

There’s a whole lot to cover this episode! Ian and Brent are joined by long-time friends of the show, Donovan Morgan Grant of the The Comic Book Film Revue Podcast, and Chris Johnson, talk Netflix’s Daredevil series, with SPOILERS abound. We talk about the plot, characters, setting, and even his horns. From there, conversation meanders to Gerry Conway‘s issues with DC Comics and creator rights in general, followed by some talk about the first few weeks of DC’s Convergence. Oh, and a little bit of Megacon and MoCCA Fest reactions. Plenty of talk to go around, and even a DeFalco bomb or two for old time’s sake.

SpiderManMoney_

Double the pleasure, double the fun! Not only do you get two episodes in a matter of days, but this episode itself is two episodes in one! First, Kris and Ian talk all about the Spider-Man movie franchise news, including his appearance in the Marvel Movie Universe, plus Kevin Feige’s involvement in future Sony Spider-Man movies. We also discuss the Miles Morales vs. Peter Parker movie debate, the Fantastic Four trailer and how it will more than likely not be for us, Michael Fassbender potentially playing Boba Fett, Ian finally watching Blade for the first time, Peggy Carter: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (both Kris’ praise, and Brent’s dislike from a pre-show conversation), The Walking Dead (SPOILERS) and more!

We then segue into the rest of our Best and Worst of 2014, questions 8-15, featuring Ian, Brent, Brandon, Chad and Yanni. Expect things to be just as grumpy, exhausted and insane as they were in Part 1. It’s a mess, but in a good way. Enjoy!
