This week, we look at the debate that took Comics Twitter by storm: Comics Piracy. We talk about the two sides, if we think it is ok or not, and what other options exist for a comics reader on a budget.
Then we talk a bit about what we are thankful for, including streaming services, Star Wars, Hickman on X-Men, and more.
Michael’s Pop News
This week, Kathleen Kennedy said in an interview that making the new Star Wars movies has been difficult due to lack of comics and novels to pull ideas from. Is this a legit concern? A self-inflicted wound due to getting rid of the Expanded Universe novels and stories? Is George Lucas to blame? We talk about it all!
Short list this week because of the holiday, but this week we talk about:
The Crow: Hark the Herald #1
Tim Seely brings us a holiday story based on the lore of the Crow. A father/daughter hunting trip does not go as planned. A year later, a group of hired guns gets together for their annual holiday trip. What do the two have to do with each other? The Crow knows.
A son picks up a case that his father had been following before his murder. But what secret had the father been keeping from his son?
Disney+’s The Mandalorian
This week, we discuss Disney+’s first original series The Mandalorian. Has it brought back fun to the Star Wars Universe? Or is it just a social media fad? We talk about the show and what we want to see next.
