Wolverine: An Essential Reading List, Essentially.

As some may know, I’m a moderator over at The Comic Board. A new member asked about where to start reading comics for Wolverine, to learn of the character and his history and whatever great stories there are. So I answered his query and gave him quite a list, but with explaining them as I went along. Just looking at the list may be seem daunting, but I assure you that it’s quite the opposite. What I have here is exactly what I posted and would recommend it to anyone interested in learning about the ol’ Cannucklehead or that wants to read great stories with him that they haven’t.   The list:     First and fore most: “ORIGIN” by Paul Jenkins and Andy Kubert. It’s Wolverine’s true origin tale. Six issue miniseries from 2001-2002.   To see where Wolverine first began, “HULK” #181 has Wolverine’s first appearance in full. You see him at the end of #180, though that is a cameo (first) appearance. This was by Len Wein, Wolverine’s co-creator (the other being Herb Trimpe, the artist on Hulk at the time).   Some years ago there was a series called “WOLVERINE: ORIGINS” by Daniel Way and Dougie…

The Comic Bubble: Celebrating Doctor Who Day.

On July 26th, 2014, it was “Doctor Who Day”, celebrating the two new ongoing series from Titan Comics based on the 10th Doctor (played by David Tennant on the BBC series) and the 11th Doctor (played by Matt Smith). I stopped by my local comic shop, Rogue Comics, and took pictures of some customers as they ‘became’ the 10th or 11th Doctor, and even joined in myself. Wait, there’s more!

Straight Outta Austin!: Episode 126 – Good Morning SDCC

In this episode of Straight Outta Austin! we joined once again by the head Comic Bubbler himself, Luis aka Ice of The Comic Bubble! We discuss SDCC, Lucy Lawless joining Agents of Shield,  the Deadpool movie test footage, Gwendoline Christie’s Role In Episode VII,  Capcom Greenlighting ‘Street Fighter’ Sequel Series ‘World Warrior’, Game Of Thrones’ Maisie Williams May possibly starting in the Last Of Us movie, the rumor that Joaquin Phoenix may play Doctor Strange, and what happens when you try to harass a cosplayer when their friend has a bullwhip and is willing to use it. And is cosplaying as Catwoman. 

The Comic Bubble Podcast Episode 020: Night Out At The Movies

Got your popcorn ready? You’re going to need it! This week’s episode of The Comic Bubble has lots of film news to be heard. With a dip back in to Fantastic Four and Justice League, there’s also the rumors on who will play the Sorcerer Supreme in Marvel’s Doctor Strange and which character The Rock will portray in a DC film! A confirmed sequel for Marvel! More bad news from Ant-Man while a possible Marvel movie could happen in the future! It’s not all movies, though. You’ll also get a nice side-dish of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D! Gotham! Arrow! And for desert, news from San Diego Comic Con with part 1 of the coverage!

Straight Outta Austin!: Episode 125 – Don’t Call Her Lady Thor

In this episode of Straight Outta Austin! we joined once again by the head Comic Bubbler himself, Luis aka Ice of The Comic Bubble! We discuss the new female Thor, African American Captain America, and the new Apple styled Iron Man. Because Superheroes who resemble Apple products have been poorly represented all of these years. We then argue over whether or not The Rock is a good fit to play Shazam, we discuss the uncredited Walking Dead extra who tried to Heisenberg the President of the United States, and how Ja Rule, yes Ja Rule can help you when you’re feeling blue.   

The Comic Bubble Podcast Episode 019: Double Stuffed Oreo

Extra! Extra! Hear all about it! It’s a podcast stuffed to the rims with news, news, news! From a new black Captain America (and not the first time, either) to a new female Thor (this happened before too… but different situations), to rumors of series that might come and others that are happening, to series that are confirmed to end, to classic characters getting new stories and crossovers. October this year is packed with wall-to-wall of comics that you do not want to miss! Listen as well to see who’s being taken out of what TV-show, which characters are coming in, who could get their own, whose love life could be steaming up (ooh-la-la!) and why Josh Trank and FOX keep proving to be idiots with next year’s Fantastic Four movie. And a Namor film update (kinda)!
