The Megacast welcomes Liam back from his brief illness, as the guys get together to talk comics, movies, and a bit of TV.
Brian and Liam’s Comic Picks of the Week
Presented by All New Comics – All New Comics is your Online Comics Superstore, celebrating ten years in business, see them at the Forest City Comicon September 18th, or visit them online at allnewcomics.com.
Liam’s Comic of the Week
This week’s comic of the week for Liam was Aldebaran The Betelgeuse Cycle. Liam enjoyed the European flavour of the art which feels a little bit like a Miyazaki film except very dark and very adult.
Brian’s Comic of the Week
Brian chose something from last week, having read the first half of Brian K Vaughn and Cliff Chiang’s new series Paper Girls which is about four 12 year old girls who come across the greatest discovery of all time!
There was some good conversation this week including talk about The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, the amazing 90’s series Deadworld, and a little bit of comic convention talk.
Liam and Brian talked about the Star Wars Battlefront beta that Liam played over the weekend.
The guys talked about the trailer for The Force Awakens, the social impact of Star Wars, getting tickets to the opening night, and whether Star Wars has the same cache as it had when The Phantom Menace came out, and how A New Hope was a beacon of hope in the cynical 1970’s.
