The power couple has seen Marvel's new Avengers movie, and it is good. We discuss the movie here and hit on some of the things we liked, some of the stir the movie created, and what's to come in the Marvel movie universe. We also discuss Marvel Comics new series The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, written by Ryan North and drawn by Erica Henderson. We both really enjoy this off-beat and funny superhero, and we talk about some of the benefits to titles like these when creators have the freedom to try something new. Our Notables this week are a couple of announcements from DC Comics: a new Dark Knight book is on the way from Frank Miller, and they have a new DC Super Hero Girls product line in the works as well.
The first of a shorter brand of episode, in which the power couple discusses some new trailers that have been recently released. Lots of excitement in our house following multiple viewings of the trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Fantastic Four, and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. We discuss our thoughts on each here!
The Power Couple returns with episode 12! We start off this episode with some of the stuff we’re most looking forward to, including Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie and Matt Kindt’s new creator-owned series with Dark Horse Comics, PastAways. Then we talk about the unconventional hit movie, Snowpiercer. From director Joon-ho Bong and starring Chris Evans, one of the best action movies of the year features revolution on a “rattling ark” train with an eternal engine. We also discuss Marvel Comics new Ms. Marvel series, written by G. Willow Wilson and with art by Adrian Alphona. We close, as always, with our notables: the Eisner’s have been awarded and Marvel seems to be kicking its diversity initiative into high gear with a couple of high profile changes in both the Thor and Captain America series.
