The Comic Source Podcast


Jace and Jay chat spoiler-free about some of the comics hitting shops the week of June 16, 2021. Heroes Reborn reaches the last issue, but it isn’t’ the end of the story and if the last page is any indication, we have a massive battle coming in Heroes Return #1. Much like a lot of the other Heroes Reborn Tie-Ins Weapon X & Final Flight #1 really adds to the tapestry of the Heroes Reborn universe, this time in a very heartbreaking way. Home #3 really flips the series on its head, previous issues had a lot of relationship dynamics with a little action, here we get the action dialed up to ten! Seven Swords #1 from AfterShock seems like another big hit from the publisher, whether you are a huge fan of the Three Musketeers or only know them in passing this period tale expanding on their mythos is a must-read with incredible art. Alien #4 once again is cover to cover action, we are really impressed how the creative team manages to pack such a fast-paced, action-packed story into a single issue and make it feel like such a big chunk of story. X-Corp #2 is a technically wonderful comic, but we still aren’t sure how it’s tone fits in with the rest of the X-Universe. Fantastic Four #33 lives up to the classic wedding issue of Fantastic Four issues of the past. An FF wedding issue is always going to be over the top and this one is no exception and leaves us with an awesome cliffhanger. Time Before Time #2 gives us a very interesting and fresh take on a time travel story and it’s one that may have it’s roots in crime noir. I guess we will have to keep reading to find out. Radiant Black #5 picks right up where #4 left off, but once again, just when you think you know where the story is going, the creative team subverts our expectations once again. This is a very impressive book. Silver Coin #3 is brutal and horrifying just as the entire series has been so far and we can’t wait to see if this seemingly disparate tales are going to all tie together at some point. Captain America Annual #1 continues the Infinite Destinies storyline that runs through all the Marvel Annuals this summer. We get the return of Overtime, who we last saw in the pages of Wolverine and the Infinity Watch, but will his plans for redemption lead to even worse consequences? The Clone Sage of Miles Morales continues and the stakes have never been higher for out hero. We can’t help but wonder when tragedy may strike Miles and if he may then carry around the guilt of that much like Peter Parker does. Planet-Sized X-Men #1 lives up to the name with the mutants undertaking an incredible misson. Will they succeed and if so what might the fall out be, not only for the X-Men corner of the Marvel Universe, but for the whole of that universe. Stillwater #8 gives us the origin of the sheriff and pull us deeper into her motivations and loyalties towards the town. Finally Silver City #2 starts to build up both action and mystery as we settle into the the cynical afterlife that is Silver City. After a pitch perfect introduction to this world and characters, the creative team wastes no time in ramping up the narrative. Plus Jace gives a rundown on some other books you might want to be on the lookout for when you hit your comic shop this week.
