Mighty Cast Episode 23: Free Comic Book Day!

2016-07-19 15:56:21

Welcome back fans, this week we’re looking ahead to Free Comic Book Day 2016!

We also welcome back Kat to the podcast after a long absence.  And she’s here to help give a free preview of the incredible line up of titles that we’re giving away for FREE on free comic book day this year.  Every year for the first Saturday in May, publishers across the industry get together to give away tons of free comics to fans everywhere.  Some of these are new previews that give you the first look at characters, and some of them are old classics like this years free copy of Suicide Squad #1.

On the convention news front, this week Wizard World’s CEO resigned, and a new head of the company takes over.  What this means in the long term is anybody’s guess, but stay tuned here and we’ll keep you in the loop.

Game of Thrones is back on TV this week, as well as the season finale of Lucifer which was already renewed for a second season.  SHIELD continues their Inhumans arc, which unfortunately is the only outlet we’ll have for those characters for a while as the Inhumans movie has been pushed back indefinitely.

Finally we get a look at this weeks new comics, which includes the final issue of the now epic Snyder/Capullo run on Batman.  This 50+ issue run has carried us through years and introduced us to a ton of new characters and groups, but we knew it had to come to an end eventually. We’ll miss this duo, but have a lot to look forward to with the coming Rebirth of DC storylines.  This massive overhaul of the company will hopefully get continuity under control and keep us entertained for the next few years.

Thank you all for tuning in, and we’ll see you again next week!
