Cape Town Community Podcast: Ep. 051 “Books We’re Talking About Now”

Originally published on July 29, 2012.

Max Beckman is back for another round of reviews and comic book discussion. We are reading a handful of new minis and ongoings as well as discussing some of our favorite titles from the last two weeks.

Cape Town Comic Discussion
00:10:50 National Comics: Eternity #1: We both loved this one-shot by Jeff Lemire.
00:14:55 Debris #1: Max enjoyed this new mini from Image, but Don thought the art and coloring is the real star.
00:20:18 Axe Cop: President of the World #1: Max is still enjoying the writing of young Malachai Nicolle, but Don is missing the energy of the previous mini.
00:25:24 Captain Marvel #1: While we both enjoyed the first issue, Don doesn’t believe the art fits the new series.
00:31:53 Incredible Hulk #11: This book is breath of the skunk ape fresh air.
00:35:26 Secret Avengers #29: We’re not certain when the story takes place, but we’re digging what Rick Remender is doing on the series.
00:43:22 Captain America #15: Cap’s adventures are winding down, and not feeling entirely fresh any longer.
00:46:09 Wolverine #309: Ivan Brandon delivers a thoughtful Wolverine story (we mistakenly credit Mike Costa’s work in Blackhawks during the episode).
00:51:11 Avengers vs. X-Men #8: The fight continues and we are happy observers.
00:57:44 Red Hood and the Outlaws #11: We continue to enjoy Scott Lobdell’s fun adventure series.
