Carly, Neil and Stu dissect the Suicide Squad movie, as well as review Bryan Lee O'Malley's debut issue of Snotgirl, slasher movie-inspired Night Trap from Cullen Bunn and J.B. Bastos, and Civil War II tie-ins The Accused and The Fallen (which might be better than the main series).
Reunited and it feels so good. Carly is back, joining Neil and Stu to discuss the first issues of indie titles She-Wolf and Bounty, the second issues of Moon Knight and Punisher, the animated Batman: The Killing Joke feature film, and the Comic Con trailers for Justice League, Luke Cage, Doctor Strange and Legion. Plus niche musical references to Shakira, Paula Abdul and One Direction. Subscribe, review and rate #AskBAMAnything
Neil and Stu are joined by presenter and video games journalist Lucy James for the first in a two part chat about her love of comics (this time covering the Beano, Batman, X-Men and The Walking Dead). Also, we roll out rubbish Axel Rose impersonations for reviews of Marvel's Civil War II, the relaunches of Moon Knight and Punisher, Lady Mechanika, Judge Dredd: Cursed Earth Uncensored, and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.
Neil and Stu return for a defective duo special, where they discuss the first wave of DC Rebirth titles (Wonder Woman, Detective Comics, Titans and Action Comics), the first issue of the Marvel Han Solo series, the benefits of Comixlogy, Stu's visits to Gorilla King Comics in Baltimore and Titan Comics in Dallas, and more of your #AskBAMAnything questions.
The gang discuss two big comic book events that hit the shelves at the same time - DC Rebirth and Steve Rogers: Captain America. Internet comic artist sensation Stephen Byrne is also interviewed, Carly checks out Dark Horse's The Secret in her still to-be-given-a-title review segment, and Neil's fave section - Sinister Society of Stupid - returns with one-time Bat villain the King of the Cats... who was partial to be a bit of incest. Allegedly. Court case pending.
Neil and Stu were at the X-Men: Apocalypse global fan screening, hobnobbing with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and Oscar Isaac. One of us came out thinking it was even better than Captain America: Civil War, whilst the other felt it was one of the worst superhero movies ever made. Like a podcast Xavier and Magneto, the duo breakdown the movie to defend their wildly differing viewpoints. Will they find common ground? Goes without saying that there are spoilers throughout.
What's so Civll about War anyway? A packed issue of BAM features reviews of Wonder Woman: Earth One, Captain America: Civil War and Locke & Key. Also, in the first BAM Cuppa Comics interview, we're joined by Millarworld's editor Rachael Fulton to discuss Empress, Jupiter's Legacy, the Millarworld Annual, builder's tea and more.
REVIEWED: Empress, Black Panther, Street Fighter X G. I. Joe, Batman '66 meets the Man From U.N.C.L.E. and The Vision.
Yep, it's true, after last issue's movie-focused special, the transatlantic trio actually talk about real comic books this time. Along the way you'll learn about the Hathaway Slap (not to be confused with '90s one-hit wonder Haddaway) and the dangers of thrush.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice reviewed! The DC Comics Trinity of superheroes - Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman - are united on the big screen for the first time. So what did the comic book podcast trinity of Neil, Carly and Stu think?
We reveal who had "more wind machines than Diana Ross", which character should have been "Frank Underwood and not Rainman", as well as argue that this might be the "best 3/5 superhero movie" you'll see this year.
This transatlantic issue discusses the recent controversy surrounding the Iron Fist casting for 2017's Marvel Netflix TV series. But before all that, who/what the ruddy heck is an Iron Fist... and how does this segue into asking whether Nic Cage would have made a sexy Superman in Tim Burton's aborted motion picture? Also, Neil, Stu and Carly find time to review some comics... this time it's IDW's 1950s horror anthology Haunted Love and a "decent 4 out of 5" for Titan Comics' The Troop.
