Episode 6: Who Made This Podcast? Mah Wife!

THE STACK (COMICS)

  • The Saviors #3, Image Comics

    • The Who: James Robinson (Writer), J. Bone (Artist)

    • The Good: We finally get some color! Rich Mexico scenery art.

    • The Bad: 20 pages? Way too much dialogue written way too casually.

      • FINAL RATING: 3 PEWS

  • Evil Empire #1, BOOM! Studios

    • The Who: Max Bemis (Writer), Ransom Getty (Artist)

    • The Good: Art is crisp and gorgeous. Vivid colorwork by Chris Blythe.

    • The Bad: Too “dense”? Soapbox feel and pot shots. No progression via characters.

      • FINAL RATING: 2 PEWS

  • Starlight #1, Image Comics

    • The Who: Mark Millar (Writer), Goran Parlov (Artist)

    • The Good: Parlov’s art is reminiscent of Moebius and Dave Gibbons, which is always welcomed. Millar’s story and pacing is amazing, making you catch the feels as well as leaves you with a helluva cliffhanger.

    • The Bad: Not a goddamn thing. That I didn’t have issue 2 already?

      • FINAL RATING: 5 PEWS

 

WARP ZONE (GAMES)

  • South Park: The Stick of Truth, Obsidian Games

    • The Good: Humor. Like a 10-hour long South Park episode.

    • The Bad: Slight hiccups in framerate. Not enough fights in-between scripted battles.

      • FINAL RATING: 4 PEWS

 

APP-LE OF MY EYE (APPS)

  • Royal Revolt 2, Flaregames

    • The Good: Free. Nice twist to the Tower Defense Genre having you have to play through other peoples’ set-ups.

    • The Bad: Definite cash grab, like all F2P games. If you’re forking over cash for virtual currency, you’re probably in Gold League easy. That’s lame.

      • FINAL RATING: 4 PEWS

 

OMGTV (TV SHOW)

  • Noragami, FUNimation

    • The Premise: Story of “up-and-coming God” Yato and his struggle to become more relevant by taking odd-job “prayers”.

    • The Good: Animation-style is reminiscent of big-budget Japanese movie animation. Music direction always on point.

    • The Bad: Nothing much so far. Sometimes the show takes detours for a little more character development, so they stray away from the main story progression. But it’s enjoyable regardless.

      • FINAL RATING: 5 PEWS

 

LET’S GET REEL (MOVIES)

  • 300: Rise of an Empire, Warner Bros. Pictures

    • The Good: Eva Green’s acting and tits. Great camerawork. Gore plentiful. If you’re going to eat popcorn and watch mindless killing, you’re gonna have a good time.

    • The Bad: Against Green’s acting, everyone else wanes in comparison. Very little plot and progression.

      • FINAL RATING: 3 PEWS
