We take a break this week from our normally scheduled video game discussion to focus on another topic near and dear to our hearts: comic books. Continuing our weekly production streak (three in a row makes it an official streak), episode 16 of Marooners’ Talk, titled “Avengers vs. X-Men and Other Comics Shit,” was originally intended to focus solely on the upcoming Marvel Comics Avengers vs. X-Men event. As is the case with nerds, however, the discussion quickly expanded to take in the entire topic of comic books in general (hence the “and Other Comics Shit” part of the episode title).
Avengers vs. X-Men, DC’s New 52, DC vs. Marvel in terms of ease of entry for new readers, Marvel’s fanatical obsession with “events,” and more are all discussed in this week’s brand spankin’ new episode. Oh, and Thom compares Spider Island and its Companion to the Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual and the Player Handbook.
