Welcome True Believers, this is the Mighty Marvel Mix, a Podcast brought to you by the Taylor Network of Podcasts. This is a podcast for fans of all things Marvel! Comics, movies, TV, merchandise, we’ve got you covered with news, views and reviews.
In this episode, your hosts Paul Shearman and Darrell Taylor have got their old chum Colin Coughtrey back with them. We’re talking about Free Comic Book Day, which happened recently but may have passed you by in these strange and uncertain pandemic times. We share our thoughts on the different ways that FCBD has been used to promote new stories and give an introduction to new characters and titles – but does it actually help to bring new readers to the genre? We discuss.
We’ve also got the round up of all the new Marvel Comics releases for the last week, including our regular review of the big crossover event of the summer, Empyre.
And we take time out to reflect on the fallout from the corporate changes within Warner Media that are impacting on D.C. Comics employees. It doesn’t matter whether you like Marvel or D.C. or both, people’s livelihoods are being affected, and all of us at the Mighty Marvel Mix Podcast pass on our best wishes to all those people facing uncertain times ahead.
And by the way, there’s a small section near the start where Paul’s microphone decides to be rubbish – but it sorts itself out after a few minutes. Shame that Paul himself decided to stay rubbish thereafter, but there you go….!
