Filed under: Podcasts — Tags: , , , , , , — Joseph Mastantuono @ 1:42 pm

Teen Titans! Runaways! Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane! At least one of these books is readable these days! Find out which one, this week on the podcast!

The show kicks off with an Evening at the Improv, followed by a brief discussion of Grant Morrison and Cameron Stewart’s Seaguy: Slaves of Mickey Eye (Yay, It’s [Finally] Being Published!) before casting a wary eye on Teen Titans, its treatment of Static, its lack of heroics, and its Sensational Character Find of 2009, The Face.

The bulk of this week’s show examines two recent Terry Moore efforts at Marvel, Runaways: Dead Wrong and Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane: Sophomore Jinx. Can Moore live up to the pedigree of these titles, or for that matter his own bibliography? Listen and find out!
