Happy New Comic Book Day! Raf here checking in, managing to pull myself away from listening to some Pantera and reading Jason Aaron’s Conan the Barbarian (By Crom, it’s awesome!) to talk about this week’s featured new releases. It’s a big week with some cool new titles and plenty of great variants to choose from. Let’s check things out. Marvel Comics Swinging in quick after last week’s oversized finale to the Nick Spencer run, this week’s issue #75 of Amazing Spider-Man promises to shake up the Spidey status quo. Ben Reilly’s back in town and Marvel’s been teasing some serious medical bills for Peter Parker, but what does it all mean for the future of Spider-Man?

BEYOND.  Also just in time for the new Venom sequel this Friday, the Extreme Carnage miniseries wraps up this week with an Omega one-shot. Simply put, “IT’S ALL COME DOWN TO THIS!

Happy Wednesday everybody! Raf here, long time listener first time caller, filling in for John and it’s that magical time of the week, New Comic Book Day! Lots of exciting books out this week, and maybe even some new titles to freshen up your pull lists. Let’s get into it! MARVEL COMICS It’s a biggie this week from the House of Ideas as the Death of Doctor Strange miniseries kicks off with issue #1. Stephen hasn’t had his own book in a while, and this is how you treat him, Marvel!? Just a few months ahead of his big screen sequel no less. We’ll have to read and see what writer Jed Mackay of Black Cat and Moon Knight throws his way, but it sets itself up as the last days of the Sorcerer Supreme. DC COMICS Gotham’s been a strange sort of place (stranger than usual) this past year under the helm of James Tynion IV, and new this week is Batman #113. And going right along with it is also the first big wave of Fear State tie-ins...
