    EARTH PRIME TIME: HUB COMICS REBOOT IN SOMERVILLE

    Tim Finn, Jesse Farrell at Hub Comics

    LeaguePodcast manager Matt Dursin and myself made our way to the celebrations at Hub Comics in Union Square, Somerville on Saturday to see what the Hub was about, Bub! The local comic shop (LCS) celebrated being open four years with a fresh new vibe. New owner Tim Finn has let the sunlight into the shop for the relaunch, both literally and figuratively, by unblocking the windows and by paying tribute to the memory of previous owner James Welborn, who passed away in May of last year.

    Moriarty (Image Comics) sold out the first issue, an extraordinary feat! Taken from the journals and adventures of Sherlock’s antagonist, Moriarty #8 finds the Professor investigating the murder of his student and ally in Burma. … Why not make the first science fiction monster a secret agent and pit him against O.M.A.C. (One Machine Army Corp) in a freak battle royale? The New 52 gives us Frankenstein, Agent of Shade #5! … Ted McKeever chose a black & white, Golden Age format for his latest, Mondo #1. You won’t like Mondo when he’s chicken! BTW, You should totally swing by Hub Comics on Saturday. They’re rebooting the store.

    EARTH PRIME TIME: MATRIMONY IN RIVERDALE … THE GAY KIND

    Life with Archie #16

    I learned last week while meeting my friend’s wife for the first time that you are to say “Congratulations” to the groom and “Best Wishes” to the bride. Today we double up on the congrats because Lt. Kevin Keller of Archie Comics is getting married to a Dr. Clay Walker in Life with Archie #16 on the shelves today.

    Lieutenant Kevin meets the good doctor after recovering from an injury in the Iraq War. Some have hypothesized that Riverdale is in Mississippi, home state of Archie creator John Goldwater. That’s likely not accurate, as Mississippi has prohibited same-sex marriage since 1997, and has since amended the Mississippi Constitution in 2004 to drive the point home.

    My debut colum covers everything you need to know about the new Cobra Commander!

     

    Cobra Commander

    I was eleven when they were building Serpentor. Serpentor was derived from the DNA of the world’s greatest warriors, and I was along for the ride. Who needed Chrome Dome leading Cobra when you could build your own? Issue #49 still has the teeth marks on the spine. Smartly, I brought the next issue home on my bike in a bag. Now, here’s my first column of EARTH PRIME TIME.

Greg Pak delivers a solid caper worthy of Claremont in Astonishing X-Men #45! … Ron Marz has concluded his epic 71 issue run of Top Cow’s Witchblade. Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash, G.I. Joe) takes over with Witchblade issue #151. This is absolutely the best time to jump on! … Lone Ranger and Tonto are classic heroes nearly 80 years old! They capture the spirit of the old west idealism while fighting injustice with perfect grammar. Lone Ranger #1 hi-ho’s onto shelves today! … Picks this week from LeaguePodcast.com.
