Since I apparently didn’t offend enough people with my last vid…

This one, however, has the pedigree of being recommended by the smart, beautiful, entertaining and subversive Miss Alison Haislip of AOTS.


“The one where Jose asks Ian what the HELL is going on in the creative process of American comic books?”

NEW PLAYER PLAYS IMMEDIATELY!


We hope you have as much fun listening as we did making this podcast!

DON’T MISS REVIEW WEEK!

Joltin’ Jose Melendez and Insideman Ian MacMillan briefly discuss the supposed impending, needless and most certainly temporary DEATH of Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man by the infamous sales powerhouses Mark Millar and Brian Michael Bendis. Ian & Jose then launch into SPINE TINGLING REVIEWS of Millar’s SUPERIOR #1 & #2 and BENDIS’ AVENGERS #7. Have Marvel’s not-always-so-dynamic-duo FINALLY seen the light and started creating comics that rise above their normal less-than-noble output or do these new offerings sink to depths previously unknown?

ONLY A THOROUGH LISTEN TO THIS WEEK’S PODCAST WILL TELL THE TALE!

Leaving no stone unturned, the boys then sharpen their steely gaze on BATMAN: THE RETURN and compare that $4.99 Grant Morrison / David Finch 30-page One Shot comic book to Grant Morrison & Yanick Paquette’s BATMAN, INC #1. Find out if Jose and Ian believe that Morrison is, in fact, a two-faced devil with the power to both SUCK and SHINE in the same week… And whether Mr. Melendez has come to praise or bury ARTISTS turned ARTISTS/WRITERS David Finch and Tony Daniel.

UP ON THE GRILL: Superior #1 & #2, Avengers #7, Batman: The Return and Batman, Inc #1! Is it FEAST or FAMINE? Your fate awaits!

Grab a cup of HOT COCOA– or a Jack Daniels “neat”– depending upon your age & predilections… And enjoy a BRAND NEW PODCAST with almost FIFTEEN MINUTES of BONUS EXTRAS!

Inveterate Media Junkies PODCAST #2 PART 2

We hope you have as much fun listening as we did making this podcast!

Insideman Ian MacMillan and Jose Melendez examine the sour taste in their mouths after hearing of J. Michael Straczynski’s BIG CAREER SHIFT… As he dumps NOT ONE but TWO MORE high-profile comic book titles (Superman & Wonder Woman) to focus on Original Graphic Novels after the SOLD OUT SUCCESS of the Superman Earth One Hardcover.

Then, proving that two GROWN MEN can still talk about their FAVORITE superhero to the point of obsession, Jose and Ian take a long and winding road through Dan Slott’s first “solo” story effort in Amazing Spider-Man #648... Stopping here, there and everywhere pointing out there LIKES & DISLIKES. But what is the OVERALL VERDICT? Did the Boys like it? Well, that would be telling!

BE SURE TO LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST BEFORE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #649 HITS STORES NEXT WEDNESDAY!

Inveterate Media Junkies PODCAST #2 PART 1

We hope you have as much fun listening as we did making this podcast!

Jose Melendez and Insideman Ian MacMillan discuss the MASSIVE RECEPTION to the 1st Podcast, the SURPRISE APPEARANCE of ENHANCED You Tube Videos, take a HARD LOOK at the crappy COMIC SALES FIGURES for October, stir up trouble about some IDIOCY concerning J. Michael Stracynski’s move to writing ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVELS ONLY and then take a BIG WHACK at the NEW TITLES that Marvel sadly deemed “good enough” to appear in their FALL “SNEAK PEEKS” issue.

Jose then puts to rest ALL YOUR QUESTIONS about why there are so many Iron Man, Captain America and Thor mini-series in the shops right now…  And warns you that you are staring at the TIP OF THE ICEBERG.
