Comic Book Bears Podcast

 

As more and more of the world comes under stay-in-place or other similar orders, the Comic Book Bears are back with you with a new episode! Bryan Pittard returns to the show as does our special guest and good friend Caleb Alexander-McKinzie for this occasion. Listen in as Bryan, Caleb, Bill and Steve discuss what they have been doing since the current work-from-era began. They (eventually) get around to talking about comics. Selections include books from the Big Two (Justice League, Cable) and the world of independent creators (A Letter to Jo, Kid Gloves.)

We hope you are all hanging in there through these difficult times. (And if you just came to escape it all, you can fast forward to the 20:00 mark when the funnybook chatter begins!)

The CBB boys head once again to the movies, this time to weigh in on the latest DCEU film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) in this new episode! Over the space of an hour Steve Mowry and Bill Zanowitz detail what they thought about the new film starring Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez and Ewan McGregor and based on the DC Comics title of the same name.  In addition to their thoughts on the movie they also provide their recommendations for trade paperbacks and arcs stemming from the Birds of Prey universe of four-color stories. All this plus Billy Z goes to a comic book auction, Steve uncharacteristically mocks Bill's New Jersey accent and the phrase "connective tissue" is said waaayyy too many times!

Get out your lightsabers, fuel up your land speeders and pre-order your Child merch! With The Rise of Skywalker in theaters and The Mandalorian finishing up its first season on Disney+ the CBB boys decided for their first episode of 2020 to focus on the Star Wars universe!  And with a special episode comes special guests!! Joining Billy Z and Steve for this show are two of the biggest Star Wars fans we know among our fellow podcasters : Craig Lantz from the Southern Fried Geekery Podcast and Mike Lovins from the Reel Gay Movie Show! Apart from the aforementioned TROS and the Baby Yoda Show we also discuss the Jedi: Fallen Order video game, our own histories with the franchise and, since this IS a comic book podcast, some of the Star Wars comic books we are digging. All this and Star Wars themed Woofs of the Week!

This is the way.
