Spider-Man as of not long ago was a closed world, now, with the infusion of MCU characters into his viewpoint, Peter has his own new tech and stylistic layout, cordiality of his Avenger tutor Tony Stark.
The imaginative and intriguing villain Adrian Toomes/Vulture, played by Michael Keaton, is a much more direct threat and significantly viler towards Spider-man than the well-known counterparts he had to face in the Avengers movie.
After Toomes get ridiculed for putting all his money investments tied up in one place, he surfaces eight years later as a super-villain who makes weaponry from that investment and looks to offer it on the market and furthermore, to utilize it for heists of his own.
It's a human film, a reviving twist on the comic book layout overflowing with empathy and compelling dangers, a splendid dynamic as Peter handles the scary Vulture.
Something feels like it's been rebooted here, it's the MCU and it's Spider-man. But, is it something worth being thankful for?

008 - This week on the show we start with anything other than comics! That's right, more beverages and wrestling, but after that, it's a big review episode. We'll break it down for you below on what titles we cover. After reviews, we return to our "Year of the Bastard" segment in which we look at the fourth volume ofTransmetropolitan which is where Steve got the name for the segment. We'll be back in two weeks!
Secret Empire #0
Red Sonja #1-4
007 - This week on the cast we have only two subjects to talk about. The first being the Marvel flub earlier in the week. Steve and Dustin will walk through some of the issues they feel Marvel is dealing with while dissecting the comment made by the Marvel sales VP. After that we continue our segment "Year of the Bastard" with a look at the second volume of Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis, Darick Robertson and Rodney Ramos. Please feel free to leave comments, subscribe and add to the discussion in any way you can think of, thank for listening.
006 - I'm going to be upfront and tell you that if you don't like kids on podcasts, then you're going to hate this episode. Be it that Steve and I both have kids, it was bound to happen, so consider yourself forewarned. As for the actual meat of the podcast, we talk about Mt. Dew... then the Justice League trailer that premiered. Iron Fist is discussed slightly, but only the first two episodes. A special treat is a new segment called "Askhole with the Bastards" in which lightning round questions are shot off. We'll be getting your Askhole questions in the future if you like this segment. Lastly, an impromptu unboxing of two Loot Wears packages... it's nuck and futs folks, stay with us, stay with us.
005 - Welcome back to another week of podcasting. Do you enjoy the every other week format? We hope so, but feel free to give us some feedback about the show, be that the content, the duration or the schedule. On to business, we have a new Unpopular Comic Opinion for you, spearheaded by Steve. On the Best/Worst Comic I read this week, we have Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps and Hungry Marie... we'll see which is which. Lastly, an advanced review for X-O Manowar #1, coming soon from Valiant Comics. Oh, I should mention that we had internet problems several times throughout so the video is way jacked up, but the audio is fine.
004 - It's Comic Bastards Podcast time. This week we dive into a new segment called, "Steve Hates TV." That is to say; we're going to discuss the first three episodes of DC and NBC's Powerless! That's a comedy I promise. After we're all tuckered out on TV, we begin another new segment in which we're spending a year on Transmetropolitan called "Year of the Bastard." It's pretty relevant to what's going on in the world these days, and so if you'd like to join us, we'll be covering volume 1 "Back on the Street" on this episode and then "Lust for Life" in a month from now. We encourage you to ask us questions, make comments, point out things we've missed and join us for the live stream to interact with us. Now, on to the show!
Hopefully, you're getting used to the bi-weekly schedule we have going for the new Comic Bastards Podcast. We're continuing to deliver a different type of show and with that comes an all review episode. We have a lot to talk about and we hope you'll listen and enjoy.
Books reviewed by Steve:
The Unworthy Thor

Welcome back to a new episode of our new, but not new, comic book podcast. Today we have two segments for you to listen to.
Unpopular Comic Opinions: Comic Books are only surviving because of Hollywood
The Best/Worst Thing I Read This Week
001 - Welcome to the first episode of the brand new Comic Bastards Podcast. Join Dustin and Steve as they dive into the world of comic books, comic book movies and that thing called nerdom!
We're trying something new this go around. While this episode is a bit of catching up and starting over, we'll be doing less news and more conversations and reviews. The first segment we introduce today is a little something we like to call "The Best/Worst Thing I Read This Week."
Closing the show out we also have a reading recommendation for you and we decided to promote our good friend Justin Wood's new comic book NPCs #1: The Inventor. You can purchase the first issue of Justin's NPCs on Amazon!
We'll be back in two weeks, but if you want to make a suggestion, submit a question or recommend a comic series or run for us to read, then hit any of the social media icons at the bottom of the page and let us know. Thank you for checking out our podcast and hopefully you enjoy the fresh coat of paint. Tune in next time when we live broadcast the show as well!
