Too serious about comics.

The Alternate Cover Comics Podcast – Episode 13 (March 2014)


altcover13We are back! Finally! Hopefully you’ve had long enough to listen to our mammoth end-of-2013 special by now, so it’s about time for us to regroup and review the new Daredevil #1, along with a more general discussion of some of the recent All New Marvel Now! launches. We also, in the wake of James starting to do the whole parenting thing, have a chat about what comics we think we’d give to our firstborns, hypothetical or otherwise. And the Obsessed With Marvel quiz makes a return in possibly its longest instalment yet, as Seb takes on Rhys in an attempt to finally win one.

And if you’re wondering why the between-section stings are different this time around, it’s because I recently bought Spider-Man: Rock Reflections of a Superhero for the first time, and so have decided to inflict bits of it on you all. YOU’RE WELCOME.

As ever, you can download the MP3 directly here, listen to the episode in your browser with the player below, or get it for your preferred player via our iTunes and standard RSS feeds.

  1. Quite enjoyed the episode, fellas. But I have to say, in each of your recommendations, each time you say “you” I can’t help but think you really mean “I.” Which is why I like the idea of Phonogram, as it speaks to both the potential of the medium for storytelling as well as the personal context.

  2. Oh, and it’s pronounced HOW-stun. Houston [HEW-stun] is a city in TX.

  3. Dude. First rule of correcting people. Check you’re not getting it wrong:

    Sure sounds like he says “HEW-stun” there. Definitely not “HOW-stun”, though.

  4. I’m a new yorker. Houston the street is not pronounced like Houston the city.

  5. Though based on that YouTube link I pressume I wasn’t listening that closely
