OK for those of you who can't get enough comics in their lives I have discovered yet another department in the nerdery where you can get your fix. Both Marvel and DC have their own podcasts. I know I'm a little late on this because they've been doing it for a couple of years now but I'm guessing there are more than a few of you out there who hadn't discovered them either. The DC ones are just recordings of panels at various cons around the country. This is especially cool for those of you who don't live anywhere cool enough for a convention to take place in your own town, but the fact that conventions don't happen all that regularly leaves some of the information discussed a bit outdated. There should be new ones coming up very soon from wizard world Chicago and LA. The Marvel podcasts are a bit more timely coming out once a month and they discuss relevant issues in the Marvel U. The latest one is a conversation with Stan the Man about the history of the skrulls and the invasion that is taking place. The production value is really low with music just popping up here and there and them editing right into the middle of answers to questions that weren't asked. Most of the interviews are also phoned in so there are some interesting things that go along with that like the one with Jeff Loeb about the Hulk series when his phone kept beeping in call waiting. They are also pretty short most of the time and don't go that in depth on anything in particular. Though I've a tad critical there is some good info and if you are all about comics and want to get everything you can than you should check these out either through i-tunes or the company's web sites.
Brian And Chelsea Discuss The Hulk Starring Edward Norton... on trailerhits.com
What a great book and a great team. Jeph Loeb knows how to write fun interesting action books with just enough story to keep you interested. Ed McGuiness of the ultimates is amazing. His larger than life style plays really well to the larger than life characters in the hulk. For those of you who don’t know the big mystery in this book is who is this new red hulk. So far we know it’s not Banner, he likes to beat people up, he hates everything hulk, friends and allies included, and he likes to use guns. The subtle clue in this issue comes when the red hulk steps in front of the guard station at the entrance to the gamma base. A retinal scan is performed and the scanner says that the subject’s ID is confirmed as… and the hulk smashes the station. So we know the red hulk is someone who is recognized at the gamma base, but did he smash it to hide his identity or just because he was angry and it was there? We’ll have to keep reading to find out. The real fun starts when Banner’s cell is compromised and the true hulk escapes to confront this new red hulk. Next issue the real fight begins.

This one shot was disappointing. Usually the good one shots are action tales that involve a big fight that just needs a few extra pages to pack it all in. This book was the complete opposite of this. With all the excitement around Hulk now with the red hulk and the title getting a lot of new readers the crew at marvel took this opportunity to give the new readers a bit of backstory through the guise of an author who had had an encounter with hulk in the past interviewing other people who had seen the hulk for a book he was writing. The problem was that they weren’t in depth or exciting stories. It was stuff like I saw him jump over my car and everyone thought I was crazy. Or I was the only person on my bus who saw him lift us off the train tracks. The worst part was the little bit of hulk they did throw in. The art was not interesting or engaging at all, it was just not a good book. I’d wait for king sized hulk coming out soon which looks to have a lot more action as she hulk takes on the red hulk

Eric and J.D. from Scene-Stealers.com review the new movie The Incredible Hulk, starring Edward Norton and Liv Tyler. It turns out this re-do remake sequel kind of thing is very similar to the Bill Bixby-led TV series The Incredible Hulk, way more so than the 2003 Hulk, directed by Ang Lee and starring Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, and Nick Nolte. Eric liked the earlier Hulk, by the way, and JD hated it, so things get pretty heated over The Incredible Hulk vs.the Hulk.

Jimmy takes it too far by becoming the HULK until his uncle yanks him back into reality.
I thought this movie was great. It wasn’t as entertaining a movie as Iron Man was but I feel like they just did everything right. The cameos were appropriate and in the right place, the characters were very true to their being, and how they handled banners relationship with the Hulk was very good. The dialog was a little stale, but the story itself was great. One of my favorite things about the movie was how they revealed the Hulk. I mean it was a good 40 minutes into the flick before we saw its face. It added just the right amount of mystery and anticipation. I was a little worried about how the cgi characters would look but I gotta tell ya I didn’t think they were half bad. The transformation stuff was awesome and the faces looked pretty realistic. The action was amazing. Really one of the best I’ve seen. The super soldier fight was really well done and they did a good job of opening up the captain America movie. I have to say thought that my favorite aspect of the movie was that the hero just flat out beat the other guy. He didn’t need any help or some lucky move he just overpowered the bad guy and won. It is one of my greatest pet peeves in the super hero movie genre when the hero needs help to win. Superman needed the Parker Posie character, Iron man needed Pepper Pots, Batman needed Gordon, and so on. The Hulk just proved that he was the better man. Really good definitely a must see and if you can see it somewhere that has an extra large screen all the better.
The marvel universe has been pushed forward countless times in the kind of what if type stories especially dealing with Wolverine getting older but I have got to say that this is my favorite. After reading this I went back and pulled out my Wolverine End mini series and I definitely like this one better. It is a great idea with a completely different world that gets the questions going about how they got there. There are lots of fun things from the past popping up like the hulks grandchildren riding around in an old fantasticar and a blind Hawkeye driving the spider mobile. This series is definitely worth giving a try just based on the creative team. It is written by Mark Millar and drawn by Steve McNiven, the same creative team who brought you the Ultimates series one & two and they don’t disappoint. This issue is still pretty much an introduction but it is great and I can’t wait to see what comes next. Who is still around on the villain side and what heroes crawl out of the woodwork all aged and stuff to lend a helping hand. It is great and definitely worth getting into.
If you haven't seen or heard about the mini-me sex tape, you obviously havent been checking your perezhilton. That's's right, verne troyer, the fun sized superstar is the star of his own porn with ex girlfriend ranae schrider. Similar to most celeb sex tapes, it somehow ended up on the internet and in the hands of some guy at TMZ. According to E! Online, Troyer is suing TMZ, and I have to say that I fully support mini me in this legal dispute. Some home videos just arent meant to shared.
In other news of the weird, but true, brooke hogan spoke to US weekly this week to defend her dad. Brooke said that although shes not speaking to her mom at the moment, she's still close with her dad. So close that she has no problem with him getting up close and personal with the suncreen. Pictures recently surfaced of the hulk slathering his daughter with spf on her badunkadunk, but brooke says, it's cool. ""I know I'm a grown woman, but it's like he's touching an old car. He used to change my diaper," said the singer. Interesting metaphor, Brooke.

OK so the first arch with millar and hitch was a little disappointing but wow did it all turn around in this issue. I had a feeling that big things were coming when doom showed up and the end of last issue but I had no idea there would be this much. There are also a ton of questions that this issue raises. The biggest question of all is right on the cover saying that this issue is the beginning of the death of the invisible woman, but it wasn’t present in the pages at all. There is of course the question of who the new super powers are, what they are doing to doom and what their ultimate goal is, but what’s got me really going is what is going on with valeria, who the new nanny really is, and what the hell is the Hulk doing with the new guys. Marvel is getting a bit casual with the crossovers. I don’t mind it, but this isn’t anywhere near the same hulk that is in the solo title. If you are going to use a character from another book at least make some effort at continuity. This is still a great arch, there’s still time to get in, and let me know below what you think the answers are to some of these questions.
The first thing that you have to come to terms with is that the movie is a completely different entity than the books. It does true to some of the main themes and ideas of the books but the story is completely different. There are some moments and lines that are taken directly from the books, but on the whole it takes a completely different direction. The movie starts off really good. It is entertaining and enjoyable, and the scene when he tells off his boss is one of the greatest things I’ve seen on the big screen in a long time but they lost me after a while. The story just took too many turns to hold my attention and prevented me from truly enjoying a great scene when Wesley runs through the fraternity’s hide out just killing everyone. The action was good and really reminded me the type of stuff I would come up with as a kid playing with my hot wheels. I mean with all the flipping around and jumps I was like I swear I’ve had that car chase on my bedroom floor. One of the biggest problems that I had with the movie is that they seemed to bring up a lot of stuff but not really address it. The main on being Wesley’s power that allows him to be the efficient killer he really is. He was told what it was and how he needed to learn to control it but there was no point when he figured it out and as the audience we never got to see him turn it on and off. There was no payoff for his power. The other was the construction of all the crazy bullets I’d like to know why they were constructed and how. You know we’ve been spoiled a bit with Iron Man and the Hulk but all in all it’s a good summer popcorn action flick but it doesn’t even come close to the books.
