Inveterate Media Junkies™ #10 Podcast

• August 5th, 2011

REVIEWING DC'S NEW 52 #1 COMIC BOOKS!

PLUS WALKING DEAD SEASON 2, STORAGE WARS & TIM DALY!

We're Back in a Flash!

(And Nowhere Near As Boring As Barry Allen!)

An In-Depth look into the state of AMC's Second Season of The Walking Dead now that showrunner (and Film Director extraordinaire) FRANK DARABONT has been shown the door, asked to leave, forced out, quit (whatever)... Plus half a dozen digressions... Including a trip into the DARK ABYSS that is the NEW "Reality" Show Hit STORAGE WARS.

Then it's more MARVEL BULLSHIT-- with their latest ILL ADVISED "Comics for Comics" Promotion that's attempting to steal some of DC's THUNDER in the press-- but looks more like a bunch of sourpusses pissing into the wind.

Ian gets particularly rankled by an uncalled for Zenescope Variant (and definitely NOT for the reason you may think)!

Then Jose and Ian let loose on REVIEWS for the NEW DC COMICS 52... The 52 #1 Comics that DC will release starting with Justice League #1 on 8.31.11!

Grab a six-pack, a sandwich and at least one bag of chips and settle in... It's going to be a bumpy ride (at least, for Ian)!

There's also a plethora of Marvel Comics Commentary and HIGH HOPES for the new Captain America: The First Avenger movie! LOTS of other stuff too... But you'll just have to listen to find out. :D

Then it's on to an impromptu discussion on Disney and Marvel Studios-- just what the $4 BILLION deal was REALLY WORTH and how much it will be worth in the FUTURE...

Inveterate Media Junkies™ #8 Podcast

• April 8th, 2011

ALL INDIE COMIC SPECIAL!

A super long extravaganza that clocks in at a loyalty testing 2 Hours, 11 Minutes!

Indie Comic Fanatic/Retailer/Vlogger/Blogger Jose Melendez and Huge Indie Comic Fan/Hollywood Insideman Ian MacMillian talk about a subject near and dear to many  members of the IMJ NATION™-- INDEPENDENT COMICS and their POWERHOUSE PUBLISHERS... With an emphasis on some of the HOTTEST MANGA ever printed, 2 FANTASTIC BOOKS from Brasilian Twins Fabio "Casanova Gula" Moon & Gabriel "Umbrella Academy" Ba and one of the BEST Vertigo titles in years (HINT: This book is SO GOOD, this widely acclaimed comic rose from the ASHES of the ill-considered MINX Imprint-- and found an entirely NEW AUDIENCE with the help of the powerful prose of Brian Wood and the dynamic artistic realism of Ryan Kelly).

CHECK OUT THIS IMPRESSIVE LIST OF INDEPENDENT COMICS & CREATORS UP FOR INTENSIVE REVIEW:

Death Note Black Editions Volume 1 & Volume 2 Tsugumi Ohba & Takeshi Obata Bakuman Volume 1 Tsugumi Ohba & Takeshi Obata De: Tales Fabio Moon & Gabriel Ba Daytripper Fabio Moon & Gabriel Ba New York 4 & New York 5 Brian Wood & Ryan Kelly

These great titles represent some of the MOST ACCLAIMED, BEST SELLING books in their respective Independent Genres... And EACH VOLUME was HANDPICKED by Ian & Jose to provide you with HOURS of EXCELLENT READING!

It's also a true WTF? Moment™ when someone (we won't say who) mentions the "S" Word (Superheroes) and it's ALL DOWNHILL from there. Love turns to Hate (or, at the very least, STRONG DISLIKE) and the Springtime Love Fest is replaced by the BITTER BASTARDS we all know and love.

And if that's not enough, find out what's happening with the Inveterate Media Junkies website and how Jose & Ian are taking steps to make sure they produce a STEADY STREAM of Internet-Busting Podcasts... It's a SNEAK PEEK into the NEXT Inveterate Media Junkies Podcast!

Inveterate Media Junkies™ #7 Podcast

• February 28th, 2011

An extra long extravaganza that clocks in at just 92 SECONDS SHORT of a FULL 2 HOURS!

There's a LOT to talk about so let's jump right in!

First, Retailer/Vlogger/Blogger and IMJ Mastermind Jose Melendez and Hollywood Insideman Ian MacMillian talk Inveterate Media Junkies and the explosive growth of both the website and podcast. After patting themselves on the back (to be fair, as usual, Ian does MOST of the "patting") THE BOYS move onto much more serious subjects, like:

It's EXAMINATION TIME for prolific 30 Days of Night Creator STEVE NILES and his call (also echoed by B. CLAY MOORE, creator of Hawaiian Dick) for a LESS SNARKY, LESS ACERBIC Comic Book Press.

Find out WHY this DOESN'T work and how the idea eventually leads to a DELAYED-- yet SUPER REACTIVE EPIPHANY-- by Ian LATER in the Podcast!

Then what's going to happen to the Direct Comic Book Market...

... specifically many of the less than stable Independent Comic Book Companies-- when the now in Bankruptcy Court Borders Bookstore Chain CLOSES over 200 stores and begins RETURNING tens of thousands of Comic Book Hardcovers & Graphics Novels to the Distributor?

In a true WTF? Moment™, Ian & Jose are simply befuddled by Diamond Digital!

The seemingly convoluted digital distribution system dreamed up by the comic market's only major distributor. We guarantee you that you will be just as confused as Jose and Ian by the time you finish listening to this segment.

Then it's on to REVIEW-A-PALOOZA™ -- Where the boys give a HUGE NUMBER of IN-DEPTH reviews and clean-up the backlog of books that have been hounding them since the first of the year.

Expect to hear tons of WELL-INTENTIONED SNARK as Ian & Jose review the latest issues of Brian Michael Bendis' Scarlet, TWO issues of Nick Spencer's T.H.U.N.D.ER. Agents. Batman, Inc #2, David Finch's Batman: The Dark Knight #1, TWO ISSUES of Scott Snyder and Jock's Detective Comics, the 1st issue of the GREAT on-going Hack/Slash series by superb talent Tim Seeley-- and many, many more topics in between!

Finally, Ian BLOWS UP. Not just a little. NOT just a lot. MORE than that. WAY MORE THAN THAT.

Imagine an Active Volcano DETONATED by a Nuclear Explosion and you'll start to get the idea of what happened. It is a NO HOLDS BARRED, NO PUNCHES PULLED tirade that is LONG OVERDUE and exposes fraudulent suppositions that HAUNT this industry. And the BEST THING? It is COMPLETELY, 100% UNEDITED. RAW & READY for your perusal.

And if that's not enough, Jose gives a SNEAK PEEK into the NEXT Inveterate Media Junkies Podcast!

(Holy Crap! NO rest for the weary!)

That's the Inveterate Media Junkies Podcast-- The ONLY WEEKLY PROGRAM where you can find IMJ Founder Jose Melendez... And co-founder Ian MacMillan too... And please stick around the MASSIVELY REDESIGNED IMJ WEBSITE and EXPLORE! It's the ONLY SITE on the INTERNET where you can interact with Jose (and Ian)! The door's wide open... And the site is a great place to converse with lovers of all kinds of media and entertainment!
