To celebrate Free Comic Book Day, the BAM Comicscast is giving you a sneak peek at the first episode of its new show, Read This Comic (Before You Die). This time Stu, Neil and Lucy will tell you why X-Men: Grand Design by Ed Piskor deserves to be in your comic book collection.
We're back with a whole new format! Here's an episode zero for a new BAM Comicscast podcast called Read This Comic (Before You Die), due to launch in Spring 2018. Stick with us and we'll help you build the ultimate comic book and graphic novel collection. This short preview features Stu Taylor, Neil Gorton and Lucy James giving you a sneak peek into what's to come during season one of the show.
It's a comic book spy special, as Neil and Stu were invited to a press screening for comic book movie sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle. They also interview the film's co-writer Jane Goldman about the film and comics like The Walking Dead, Paper Girls and Motor Crush.
Comics reviewed this time include Kingsman: The Red Diamond, Jimmy's Bastards, Miss Moneypenny and Velvet.

Neil and Stu kick off a new episode talking about how the classic Marvel Ultimate Alliance video game series from the '00s painted a very different picture of the Marvel Universe to what we see in the Cinematic Universe.
Then brace yourself for a bumper crop of comic book reviews, from Centipede, Darth Vader, Mister Miracle, Dark Nights: Metal, Marvel Generations and Bane Conquest.
There's even time to discuss whether legacy numbering for long-established comic series is a good or a bad thing.

Neil and Stu are back after a summer vacation. This issue was recorded on the 100th birthday of Jack Kirby, so is the perfect excuse to look at what Marvel and DC have published to mark the legendary creator's centennial. Also discussed is the Batman & Harley Quinn animated movie - fitting tribute for Harley's 25th birthday or a killing joke without a punchline?

Neil, Stu and Carly discuss their hot takes on San Diego Comic Con 2017. The gang discuss (deep breath) Justice League, Thor: Ragnarok, Inhumans, Captain Marvel, Ant Man & The Wasp, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Gears of War, Arkham Asylum 2, Pacific Rim Uprising, LEGION, Dr. Doom - The Movie, The Walking Dead and more!
Stu is joined by special guests Lucy (Gamespot) James and Gillen (Spider-Fan) McAllister to review the third big screen take on Spider-Man. Expect split opinions on Spidey's return to the MCU fold as well as a few nerdy revelations that you might have missed. It goes without saying that this one is spoiler-heavy, webheads.
Neil and Stu lose the plot without Carly's guidance and mistakenly declare that Burt Ward has died. Also hear our first-hand LA experiences, from the Adam West memorial, a whistlestop tour of Meltdown Comics and Legacy Comics & Cards, a tour of Warner Bros. Studios and mixed emotions at Disneyland for a ride on Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: Breakout! Oh, and we review some comic books too.
