Marvel Infinite Comics.   Infinite Comics are Marvel’s first foray into releasing digital only comics.  They will be made specifically for tablets like the  iPad..  The first comic will be Nova.  Featuring the new Nova, on his way to Earth to warn the Avengers about the Phoenix Force.  This digital comic will only be  .99 cents, or free with the purchase of Avengers vs X-Men #1, and will be released on April 4th.

Death of Jean Giraud aka Moebius. Jean Henri Giraud, better known as Moebius, was born in 1938 in the suburbs of Paris. He’s been using the Moebius pseudonym since 1963, when he wanted to draw a distinction between his work in fantasy and science fiction and other works. Giraud started art school at the age of 16, and by 18, he was drawing a comic strip called “Frank et Jeremie” for FAR WEST magazine.
Moebius did strips from 1963 to 1964 in a magazine called HARA-KIRI and then disappeared for many years. Then in 1975, he co-created a magazine entitled METAL HURLANT. In 1981, he started his immensely popular INCAL series with Alejandro Jodorowsky. ARZACH and the serial, THE AIRTIGHT GARAGE, also had their origins in METAL HURLANT.
In 1988, Moebius drew a two-part SILVER SURFER limited series with writer, Stan Lee.  He did production design for several movies, including Alien,  Dune, Tron, The Abyss and The Fifth Element.    He passed away at the age of 73.

Lots of creator changes on the way.  Brian Michael Bendis will be taking on the X-Men franchise.  Amy Reeder is leaving Batwoman citing ‘creative differences’.  Jeff Lemire will be taking over Justice League Dark.

The mysterious lady in purple, known as “Pandora” who appeared at the end of Flashpoint and in all of the 1st issues of the new 52 had a back-up story in Justice League #6.. she was in a heated debate with the Phantom Stranger.

DC Nation review!

Aaron Gabbard –  “SATURDAY CARTOONS ARE BACK!!!!!!! but what have they done to teen titans :(“

Quinn Kuzmich – “Warblegarble *drool*”

Justice League: Doom Review!

3) Comic Book News

New Avengers Trailer and Movie Poster… A new movie poster was released this week, with Robert Downy Jr. taking front and center as Iron Man.  It’s a cool poster, but it seems a little… off in my opinion.  The trailer, on the other hand, is mind blowing, and will definitely get you excited for the movie.

Earth 2 Character Designs… Recently, DC has been releasing their designs for their Earth 2 characters.  The characters have been designed by Jim Lee and Kevin Maguire.  These characters will appear in the new DC books, Earth 2 and Worlds’ Finest.  Shown so far have been Batman, Wonder Woman, Robin (who is now Huntress) and Supergirl (who is now Power Girl).

No Bill Murray for Ghost Busters 3.  Bill Murray has decided against doing a Ghostbusters 3.  Apparently none of the scripts shown to him have been good enough, and it appears they never will be.  However, the plan is to still move on without Bill Murray or his character Peter Venkman.

San Diego Comic Con sold out in 90 minutes!

One of the great Golden Age artists, Sheldon Moldoff past away at the age of 91.  His first work was in Action Comics #1 with a sports piece called “Odds and Ends”.  He is known for his work on Hawkman and co-created Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, Batwoman and Batgirl, Bat-Mite and Ace the Bat-Hound.

  • Newspaper Coverage

3) Comic Book News

  • This summer, Marvel is releasing a three-issue limited series titled MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS: BLACK WIDOW STRIKES, where the red-headed Russian goes to her homeland to stop an international crisis. Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity of movies, this espionage thriller promises to give readers their first full view of how lethal Black Widow can be.  “This story takes place between ‘Iron Man 2’ and ‘Marvel’s The Avengers,'” writer Fred Van Lente tells Marvel.com.  “Black Widow is running down some loose ends from ‘Iron Man 2,’ namely some bootleg Stark technology that Justin Hammer made. It’s her and Agent Coulson going into Russia, but you’ll also probably see Nick Fury and the other heroes as necessary.”

  • On April 1, Disney XD is launching Ultimate Spider-Man, an all-new animated series for fans of all ages. To get a first look at the series, Marvel is putting out ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN PREMIERE, a screen capture comic book adaptation of the first episode. The issue arrives in stores on March 28.
  • Marvel has been recently releasing teaser’s to their Spider-Man focused event “The Ends of The Earth” starting in Amazing Spider-Man #682.  The teasers have been featuring various members of The Sinister Six.

4) Review of Fear Itself and Flashpoint

5) Wiki of the Week –

Flash’s Costume Ring is a small ring with a spring-loaded opening. Barry Allen, the second Flash, used this ring to compress and conceal his costume while operating in his civilian identity. By thumbing a small stud on the side, the top of the ring opened, releasing the costume (chemically treated to shrink), allowing Barry the ability to change clothes at super-speed.

Wally West, the third Flash, also uses one of these rings. Barry’s grandson, Bart Allen, used a similar ring to hide his costume while he was the Flash, and another to house his Impulse and Kid Flash costumes (he does not remove this ring under any circumstances, at least not willingly).

Notes

  • Bart’s first costume ring, that in which he stored his Impulse costume, was a gift from Wally West, and a replica of Barry’s original.

Trivia

  • Green Arrow used the ring given to him by Barry Allen as a gift when he proposed to his longtime girlfriend Black Canary.
  • The Flash has shown the ability to vibrate and compress his molecules to actually hide himself inside of the ring when the situation calls for it

Shownotes:

1) Update from Troy and Will: Due to the special nature of today’s episode we only shared a quick update with the guys, Join us next week to catch up with the guys completely.

2) Comic Book News: Again with this being a super special episode, we only shared bullet points of the Comic Book News in the show. Here is a complete list of the news:

Comic Book News:
Press Release from Tokyopop: For nearly 15 years, TOKYOPOP, led by Stu Levy, its founder, CEO and Chief Creative Officer, has pioneered the English-language manga movement and touched the hearts, minds and souls of enthusiasts worldwide.
we are sad to inform our loyal community of manga fans, our passionate creators of manga content, our business and retail partners, and other stakeholders who have supported us through the years that as of May 31, 2011, TOKYOPOP is closing its Los Angeles-based North American publishing operations.
TOKYOPOP film and television projects and European operations, including the German publishing program, will not be affected by the Los Angeles office closure. In addition, TOKYOPOP will continue its global rights sales via its office in Hamburg, Germany.

Fear Itself #1 and Fear Itself: Book of Skull #1 have sold out at diamond and will back on the shelves with 2nd printings in May.

The DC Comics Presents: Legion Of Superheroes: Legion Of The Damned 100 Page Spectacular #1 reprinting previously unreprinted Legion comics had been recalled by DC Comics after chapters had been printed in the incorrect order. Retailers were asked to destroy them, to be replaced by new correctly printed copies in a couple of weeks. Some, however, put theirs for sale on eBay below the $7.99 cover price for $6.99. Some even less. Then one managed to get $9.99 for it. Then $30. Right now all those lower priced copies have been mopped up. There are a bunch of Buy It Nows listings at around $30.

Media News:
The Hollywood Reporter says that Michael Clarke Duncan is to voice green lantern corps trainer Kilowog in this summer’s Green Lantern film. Though the movie’s out in just more than two months — June 17 — it’s still  in post-production. On March 30, Geoffrey Rush was announced as the voice of Tomar Re; footage of the character voiced by Rush was shown two days later at WonderCon in San Francisco.

Nestor Carbonell has been confirmed as continuing his role of Mayor of Gotham City in the Dark Knight Rises.  Nestor Carbonell played Richard Alpert on Lost. (Make sure the listen to  to this part of the podcast. I will forever laugh when I hear Nester Carbonell’s’s name.)

Ray Park (Darth Maul from Star Wars: The phantom menace) has announced that he will reprise his role of Snake Eyes for the GI Joe sequel, directed by Jon Chu.

3) Interview with Peter David (www.peterdavid.net)

During the interview we talk about Peter David’s writing schedule, his many awards, his work on Fallen Angel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallen_Angel_(comics)), the Spider-man: Edge of Time Video Game script, a (fictitious?) Cancer scare, and his upcoming work on Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Young Justice. Peter concludes this interview talking about his new publishing company, Crazy 8 Press (http://www.crazy8press.com)!
