So the year is over and the team look back and pick their best comics, films and videogames. The tremendous trio are joined by two very special guests for this special bumper sized episode.
Merry Christmas you crazy comic loving people! Welcome to this, my Papercuts and Inkstains Christmas Special! I was tempted to start listing Christmas themed comics, ala my Halloween special, but decided against it. I was also going to do a countdown of awesome Geeky gifts and presents, but, you’ll see why I didn’t.
This week, Free rejoins the show just in time to discuss the mid-season cliffhanger of Agents of SHIELD. Dan and Jack also discuss Arrow’s mid-season finale and the trio share their best and worst comics of the week. Lastly, it’s the triumphant return of listener questions!
The men involved in his wife’s death must die. All of them. Writer JUSTIN JORDAN (LUTHER STRODE) and artist MATTEO SCALERA (BLACK SCIENCE, Indestructible Hulk) craft the bruising story of one man’s revenge and the dark road he travels.
Passion. Passion flows through us all. It’s in our blood, in our hearts, minds and veins. For some of us the pull of it, the overwhelming nature of it, is stronger than others, but it is there, buried in recesses of your soul. I like to think I’m a passionate man. There are many things in my life I am passionate about. Charlotte, my fiance, our children, music, comics, films, my job and such.
The woods of Coffin Hill offer up some old bones, but the fate of the two missing teenagers remains a mystery. Nate reluctantly accepts Eve’s help with his investigation when he hits a wall.

GARTH ENNIS – the master wordsmith of Preacher and Crossed – delivers a story like no other, as a band of canines set out to survive on their own for the first time. This is the story of three best friends at the end of the World.
Hey I’m Matt, the reviews I do are spoiler free for the most part (except for sequential issues where I might mention what happened previously) but I aim to give you an overview of the story/art and basic quality of the book so you can make an informed decision and not waste those precious £!!
When I was a young warthog…. WHEN I WAS A YOUNG WARTHOOOOOOOOG…. Wait, no. Stop plagurising Disney Robin! When I was younger, I loved characters like Batman, Superman, the X-Men and such and very much enjoyed the TV shows that were on offer at the time. There were classic like Batman The Animated Series, The X-Men cartoon, which to this day has one of the most recognisable (and immense) theme tunes, Spider-Man,The Tick, Earthworm Jim, Bucky O’Hare and so so many more!
The City of Townsville… IS ON FIRE!?! Say, what’s going on here? Oh no, it’s Mojo Jojo! Say it ain’t so-so! That damn primate has got his cape all in a twist once again! But! Its nothing that our precious Powerpuff Girls cant handle – locking that evil monkey back in his cage! How do you like that, Mr. Smartie-Pants?
This week, our trio of hosts return and are joined by a super special guest, none other than the creator of Something Terrible himself, Mr Dean Trippe!
Dean joins Jack, Dan & Free in discussing the latest comic news and the recent 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. After Dean departs to enjoy Thanksgiving with his family, the usual hosts continue with their best and worst comics of the week and the discussion of this week’s Agents of SHIELD.
Unity #1 from Valiant has proven to be one of the most popular new releases in recent memory. Matt Kindt, Doug Braithwaite, and Brian Reber compose the creative team that has produced this wonderfully accessible chapter of the X-O Manowar storyline. So accessible in fact, that the entire first print run of 70,000 copies has sold out.
These last few years Image comics have been releasing a steady and impressive stream of new titles. Ranging from crazy sci-fi epics like “Saga”, to twists on the classic superhero genre like “Bounce”. A lot of these new series have been relatively good, but every once in a while a new series comes along that is head and shoulders above the rest; this time it’s Black Science.
