Comic Timing – Episode 185: 2016 Year in Review

Applause! Comic Timing is back! With a bang, one would hope. This episode, Brent and Ian are joined by Raph, Brandon, and returning guest for the first time in forever, Chris Chavez, as we dissect the year that was. 2016 has come and gone, and we go into the best and worst of it when relating to comics. We also give our quickie review and thoughts on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Raph also gives us his take on Doctor Strange, and Ian goes into the joy that is Justice League Action.

As you heard at the top of the episode, there is something that makes this particular episode special. This one was produced differently than any other Comic Timing has been so far. If you can guess what happened, you’ll win $10 on Comixology! Just post on the Facebook thread for this episode, and let us know what you guess happened.

Comic Timing – Episode 180: Hydra’s Civil Rebirth

WallyWest

Just like DC Comics’ worst kept spoiler in a while, we’re back! On today’s episode, Brent and Ian are joined by the Raph himself, Raphael Soohoo to discuss Captain America: Civil War, Bendis’ Civil War II, Free Comic Book Day and what comics were grabbed at said Free Comic Book Day, DC Comics: Rebirth #1, DC Rebirth in general, the whole Captain America Hydra kerfuffle, Comixology Unlimited, and more! More includes how comics have changed in the past ten years since the show started, by the way. That was fun!

Ian also meant to talk about X-Men Apocalypse but didn’t, but there’s two minutes or so of talk in the after show, and there might be an Extra Point soon talking more about it. So do stay tuned for more on that and other topics, loyal listeners.

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 152

    lego-will-arnett-batman-600

    According to Brent, this episode is titled, “The Back-Up Plan: The All Bitching Episode.” Although we do a lot more than just bitch, I promise. Brent and I are joined by Mr. Raphael Soohoo as we discuss The Flash’s new TV outfit, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the season so far (including the Sif episode), The Lego Movie, Brent’s review of Justice League: War, the official cancellation of Beware The Batman!, the announcement of the Arkham Knight game, my thoughts on Fables: The Worlf Among Us, and plenty more. We also review some comics, including Forever Evil #6, Superman/Wonder Woman #6 both She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel #1, Secret Avengers, Image Comics’ Zero and some other stuff here and there.

    As a warning, there was a chirping noise that kept recurring throughout the recording. We couldn’t trace the source, so it’s there throughout. I did my best to get rid of it whenever possible, but it’s still there occasionally. Shouldn’t be too loud or annoying, I swear! Also, next week we should be joined by Sean and Jim of Raging Bullets, as due to power outages we had to push their episode back a week. So barring any other weird weather, it shall be done!
