The Comic Cast with the Golden Claws

November 16, 2010

Billions of blue blistering barnacles! On this weeks Comic Cast we review Seth’s Palookaville #20, the first collected volume of Marvels’ Strange Tales, Straczynski/Davis’ Superman: Earth One, Brubaker/Phillips’ Incognito and we try to decode the Tintin references in Charles Burns X’ed Out. In films we discuss Adam Eilliots debut stop-motion feature Mary & Max and the big screen adaptation of Warren Ellis’ Red as well as the BFI’s DVD release of the 1961 live action film ‘Tintin and the Mystery of the Gold Fleece‘ as well as the re-release of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. With Christmas closing in fast we also give you a whole sack full of gift ideas for the nerd in your life.  And ten thousand thundering typhoons if we don’t have all the latest on Spielbergs’ Tintin movie as well as a roundup of all things comicy. And relax.

Enjoy.
