Inveterate Media Junkies™ #5.2 Podcast

Inveterate Media Junkies Podcast #5 Part 2 painstakingly (& finally!) SHUFFLES TO LIFE!

Up First: A comprehensive look back at the GREAT GOODNESS that is AMC's THE WALKING DEAD TV SHOW. Insideman Ian MacMillan & Jose Melendez look at ALL ANGLES of this MONSTER HIT... Then wonder which came first-- the TV Show or the decision to REPRINT one WALKING DEAD COMIC book EVERY WEEK until the reprints catch up to the most current issue?! The Boys really worry about this strategy. Is it a GOOD THING... Or *ahem*... OVERKILL?

1st Book on the GRILL: Wolverine: The Best There Is... Written by Charlie Huston, with art by Warren Ellis favorite Juan Jose Ryp. Whenever anyone uses the words like PERFECT or BEST in the title... They better be prepared to back them up, right? Do they this time? Do Huston and Ryp finally pull Wolverine out of a PROGRESSIVE FUNK and bring back the brawlin' X-man from the brink? Or is this just another Mighty Marvel Mess? Jose & Ian are definitely divided on several aspects of this book-- so you'll just have to LISTEN to LEARN the FINAL VERDICT.

2nd Set of Comics on the GRILL: DC Comics T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1 & #2... By super hot scribe Nick "Morning Glories" "Infinite Vacation" Spencer and artist CAFU. Both books get dissected with a sharp knife and placed under the microscope. WARNING: There are DEFINITE SPOILERS here and there-- but if you haven't read these CURRENT COMIC MASTERPIECES, you should LISTEN ANYWAY... Because Ian & Jose discuss everything from story technique, to the importance of proper story pacing to the PROPER USE of 2-Page Splashes. They also compare T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents' performance to other books on the SALES CHARTS... And Jose gives FANS reason for hope that the book will not only SURVIVE... But THRIVE! (He hopes!)

Mr. Melendez also uses a SPECIFIC WORD in this review that he possibly has NEVER, EVER used in a review BEFORE! Hold onto something tight... Cause when you hear it come out of Jose's mouth, you may FAINT. Serious.

Plus, there's random talk about a great game for the PS3-- as Jose answers a listener's TWEET in the MIDDLE of the PODCAST.

It's a BLAST! From the RECENT PAST! Check it out NOW!
