The Culture Issue 14: New Red Queen. Who Dis?

If you don’t know, I love Kitty Pryde. I mentioned it on the previous podcast and to anyone who’ll listen. Issue No. 2 of the Marauders series just amplified that love for the character. Kate Pryde became the new Red Queen. That means she’s now part of the new council on Krakoa. Much to the chagrin of Sebastian Shaw. Her new position isn’t the only interesting change. It’s her personality as well.

CCBN Issue 13: It’s All About the X-Men, Baby!

Previously, on The Culture Comic Book News podcast, Old Man Wade and The Superior Woke Octavius discussed the new run of X-Titles. The six new X-titles are X-Men, New Mutants, Marauders, Fallen Angels, X-Force, and Excalibur. Since House of X and Powers of X were both incredible, there was going to be some pressure for those runs to be just as good. Those six comic books also have to carry continuity from the House of X and Powers of X. If the first issues of these runs are any indication of what’s to come, we’ll be in good hands. However, some of us may not have the loot to spend $3.99 or more every week on comics. So I’ll give you the 3 Old Man Wade X-titles to follow.

The Boys: Changing Enough While Staying Close To The Source Material

The Boys has been a project I’ve been waiting for since I read volume 1 Name of the Game. Amazon picked up the comic book and turned it into a TV show. There’s an issue with a comic book becoming a movie or a show. How much of the source material will be used in the project? The Boys is a series that has be handled with delicacy. There are certain things that need to be in the show to keep authenticity. This series did an amazing job of combining the source material and making a show with a ton of potential. With this season only being 8 episodes, you have to get into things pretty quick. So things have to be changed.
