Three years, baby!!!!  We've been doing this silly podcast for three years and to celebrate, we covered the major X-Men and Marvel Comics story, Days of Future Past, written by Chris Claremont and pencilled by John Byrne.
Tim talked about Three by Kieron Gillen, Ryan Kelly, and Jordie Bellaire from Image comics.
Kent hasn't read any comics in awhile, but he did read Neil Gaiman's prose book The Ocean at the End of the Line and he watched Stranger Things on Netflix, so that's awesome!

Marc read All-Star Batman #1 by Scott Snyder and John Romita, Jr., Our Fighting Forces #150 by Archie Goodwin and Ed Davis, and Green Arrow #s 4 & 5 by Benjamin Percy and Juan Ferreyra, all from DC Comics.  Thanks for sticking with us for three years and here's to seventeen more!!!!

Craziness in a car.

On our way to C2E2 in Chicago, we thought it'd be fun to record an episode! In part one, we talk about our hopes & goals at the convention.

 
In part two, we discuss what we actually did at the con, including meeting Chris Claremont & Marguerite Bennett and hanging out with Ted Sikora of Apama, the Undiscovered Animal. 


In part three, we just leave the microphone on & shoot the shit. Marc manages to fit in a quick review of Sword of the Atom from DC Comics, written by Jan Strnand and art by Gil Kane. This episode really captures what it's like to take a road trip with your friends...if your friends love comics.

We were so excited about the Deadpool movie we just had to talk about it!  We dig deep, so if you haven't seen it yet, rush to your theater and watch it!  We'll wait!  ...ready? 

Okay, great. 

How great was Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, T.J. Miller, and Ed Skrein in this movie? The writers nailed all the fourth wall breaking, quick wit of Deadpool for sure too. R-rated superhero movies are a rare thing and we were not left wanting. 

We also talk about Tim's trepidation with his house selling, Detective Comics by Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul, Werewolf by Night #27 by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, Conan #56 by Roy Thomas and John Buscema, a Weird Jack Kirby fact, and letters!

This ennui-filled bit of suburban malaise was written by Tom King, with art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta and colors by Jordie Bellaire.  We have our good friend and Marvel continuity expert Jeff Uppole on the show to help us wade through the mire that is Vision's continuity. 

We also talk about Amazing Forest #1 by Ulises Farinas, Erick Freitas, and a whole slew of artists, Mystery In Space #17, and Vader Down #1 by Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato.

It's Valentine's Day, and to celebrate, we found the most tragic romantic story in comics:  Mad Love!  It's written by Paul Dini and art is by Bruce Timm.  It's the story of how Harley Quinn came to be so infatuated with the Joker, and it was adapted into an episode of Batman: The Animated Series!

Marc also treats us to a special "every 15 episode" intro featuring some of the comics industry's brightest stars!

We wax philosophical about the past year with our awards episode for 2015.  In it, we talk about our favorite writers, artists, book, characters, which usual CNU guest hosts are or are not sleeping until 8PM and/or Watching Talespin, how great a sponsor our unofficial sponsor RC Cola is, how many buttrams it would take to get Tim to read another Convergence mini-series, how Jeremiah Lambert Art will "poo this", if talking about villains from The Walking Dead is appropriate or not, how many times saying the word "banana" will prepare listeners for spoilers, and some more.  Not much more, but some more.

If you love four friends burpin', opening nerdy presents, & talkin' comics, this episode is for you. We cover the titanically influential The Authority Vol. 1, originally from Wildstorm Comics, now from DC Comics, written by Warren Ellis, pencils by Bryan Hitch & inks by Paul Neary. We also open our presents we got for each other on air, & we talk about the other books we enjoyed this week. They were- The new Dr. Strange series by Jason Aaron & Chris Bachalo, The 'Nam #s 1, 3, & 4 by Doug Murray & Michael Golden, Excalibur #42 by Alan Davis, & Totally Awesome Hulk #1 by Greg Pak & Frank Cho. This episode was a bit more laid back, especially in the "burping on-air" aspects, if you're not into that other episodes are more structured. Thanks for listening!

This week we cover one of Marc's favorite characters, Power Girl! We read Power Girl #s 1-3, written by Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti, with art by Amanda Conner, published by DC Comics in 2009. We also discuss The Invincible Iron Man #62 from 1973 and the post-Secret Wars Nova #1, from 2015. Unfortunately Marc had the wrong setting on for his mic, so his sound is a bit crappy, but at least you'll get to hear all his burps. grin emoticon

This episode is filthy. NSFW as all get out. If you have kids anywhere near you, don’t listen to this podcast. Also, tons of spoilers within.
 
We’re talking about Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky. Sex Criminals is a tongue in cheek, risqué, original romp, with butts, weiners, fetishes, time travel, and a droplet of young sexual discovery for you emo folks. Sex Criminals is published by Image Comics and has won many awards, including an Eisner! Super hot Jeremiah Lambert and Jennifer Van Autreve join Tim Van Autreve to do this ‘after dark’ podcast.

We give out fake awards to real comic book creators for their 2014 awesomeness.

This episode is a retrospective on 2014 in the comic book industry as seen through our eyes. Who blew us away? What writer and artist came out of nowhere? Who colored pictures the best? What's a Goopy Award? Jeremiah, Marc, Tim, and Jared get together to tell you their thoughts whether you want them or not. Jared was acting very strangely the whole time.
