2) Comic Book News

  • He-Man – In July, DC Comics is launching a brand new, six-issue He-Man and the Masters of the Universe comic, trying to attract a whole new audience to those once familiar characters while still retaining the fandom of those who already loved it. Written by James Robinson with art by Philip Tan, the comic will update the concepts behind the toys for a modern audience.   In the new comic, the evil Skeletor has already taken over the world, and Eternia’s heroes have forgotten their heroic nature. A character called the “Sorceress” awakens He-Man to his true purpose, and he embarks on a quest to restore the rest of the group.
  • Devil’s Due Publishing is planning both a return to publishing and payment of their existing debt to creators, according to a statement released by company founder Josh Blaylock.
  • Now dubbed “Devil’s Due Entertainment,” details of their publishing slate are still vague at this time, with Blaylock stating his intentions for a “small roster of high quality projects.” The Devil’s Due website lists upcoming projects including Yumiko: Curse of the Merch Girl (produced with hip-hop artist Murs), graphic novel Mercy Sparx and prose novel When the Devil’s Bills Came Due.
  • Avengers movie premiere
  • Young Justice Invasion began this week, with lots of enthusiasm and excitement.

1) A complete re-introduction of the guys

Will’s First Comic!

Troy’s First Comic!

Will Mitchell was born and raised near a small town in rural Kentucky. At a young age, he was introduced to the world of comics by his brother, Stewart. Early favorites included Justice League, The Avengers, Legion of Super-Heroes and the Defenders. Will has worked on several writing projects, including a screenplay for “Vampire Mistress” with Rodney Wess at RW Films LLC. Over the years, Will’s enjoyment of comics has increased. He was so inspired by the Legion of Substitute Podcasters that he begin a podcast with life-long friend Troy Price.
As a kid, Troy Price passed the time on the long bus ride home from school reading comics, frequently ones borrowed from Will.  Back then, Will was the source of all comic book knowledge… much like now.   Over the years, Troy never forgot the amazing world of his comic book heroes.  When Troy moved back ‘home’ (not his mother’s basement), he and Will picked up where they left off talking about comics. Now they don’t talk about comics on the school bus – they talk about comics on this show.

Completely Comics is a light-hearted and humorous introduction to the comic book world.  Discover the origin of some of your favorite characters, both classic and newly created.  Listen to writers and illustrators talk about their work.  Find out what’s happening in comic book news — from comic book movies to trends in comic publishing. Tune in to learn the best new comics each week.
