The Comic Source Podcast

 

Jace and Jay give their spoiler-free thoughts on some of the books that are hitting comic stores the week of May 19, 2021. Amazing Spider-Man has a classic feel, especially with the Bagley art. How much is too much for Peter to handle? Seems like we might be on the way to finding out. Speaking of classic, Daredevil #30 has quite a few classic DD villains itself and plenty of threads coming together that may mean Matt can’t handle it all if he stays behind bars. Stillwater #7 shows us the consequences of the bombing of City Hall and some members of the town may know a lot more than they have let on previously and decide to finally confide in an adult. Immortal Hulk Time of Monsters is as fascinating as it is beautiful, but what it all means for the current run of the book as it heads to its conclusion remains to be seen. Undone by Blood continues the dual narrative that we have seen throughout this title and plays it up spectacularly. Gorgeous art and colors make for a gorgeous book to look at as well. Home #2 is a very relevant and sometimes harsh look at our own political climate, but it is an important story in that it can spark conversation. Fantastic Four Life Story #1 has a lot going for it, but we wonder if too many fundamentals of relationships and team dynamics have been changed. Subsequent issues may answer that question. Way of X #2 gets even deeper into the mind of Legion and teams him up with Nightcrawler as the threat of a big time Marvel villain begins to materialize. Jay’s Book of the Week Stray Dogs #4 ramps up the tension as more of the dogs seem to be coming around to Sophie’s point of view. What this will mean for her dog family and especially her ‘master’ we will have to wait and see. The creative team behind Jace’s Book of the Week has been teasing since issue #1, maybe even before, that issue #4 changes everything. Well we don’t know what to think about what happens, but they weren’t lying. We are certainly kept guessing and it feels like nothing in this book is off limits. What a wild ride! Jace also gives a rundown on the other titles you might want to be on the look out for.
