Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Comic Book Noob: The Atom covers the super hero’s Golden Age and Silver Age origins, the ties to the The Flash and Arrow tv shows, how he’s powered by white dwarf matter, the female version–Atomica–who I’ve read but didn’t realize it in Forever Evil, plus they give their suggestions on where to start in comics. Once again another good episode that’s both informative and entertaining. I highly recommend checking these out if you have an interest in comics and superheroes.

Comics With Kenobi: Issue #4 has a review of Star Wars #7, the Obi-Wan standalone issue, Kanan – The Last Padawan #4, and their top five favorite Star Wars: Tales stories from Dark Horse Comics. Lots of great discussion with a deep and heartfelt appreciation for the comics medium. Now, as for my favorite Star Wars: Tales stories, the first to come to mind are “Fett Club”, which is absolutely hilarious, and “Fortune, Fate, and the Natural History of the Sarlacc” with it’s gorgeous artwork by Kellie Strom. Oddly enough, I’m not a big fan of “Into the Great Unknown”.

Fly Casual: Episode 50 opens with a Disney chat. Mike talks about riding Star Tours during his recent trip to Disney World, they cover the news with Bob Iger being very happy with the cut of the film he’s seen so far, Simon Pegg talking Star Wars, Carrie Fisher writing another book, Gary Whitta talking Star Wars, new casting for Rogue One, and Senator Jebel. Changing gears, they talk about coming around to the new Star Wars books and comics, their picks for worst Star Wars books ever, and they do a Tarkin bite of the week since Cory isn’t in this episode (and the Tarkin bit was pretty good). Rounding out the episode, they do their toy coverage with the SDCC First Order trooper selling out in five minutes online and they’re experiences trying to buy it, the boost in Slave Leia sales since the controversy, the 18 foot Falcon, stores clearing out of Star Wars figures in preparation for Force Friday and new product and where to get good deals. While there was no Cory in this episode, it was still as funny as ever. It actually turned out really good with lots of laughs, on topic discussion and plenty of useful Star Wars info.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • Kevin J. Anderson and Timothy Zahn will be part of a six author team writing tie-in novellas for Heroes Reborn. The first novella will be out in September.
  • Jedi News provided an update on Roger Christian’s upcoming book Cinema Alchemist. There is currently a crowdfunding project to raise money for a feature film version of his short film Black Angel. Part of the crowdfunding is signed copies of his book. Interesting to see they’re trying to get Rutger Hauer in the film.
  • Edelweiss has some new info on an upcoming Jason Fry The Force Awakens‘ novel.

Assembly of Geeks:Surviving A Giant Monster Attack” kicks off with a monster themed intro then segues into a discussion on how the military would deal with Godzilla. They also talk about the Star Trek 3 director, Denis Lawson’s response to Episode VII,  the Zac Efron Daredevil rumor, the Channing Tatum Gambit rumor, the look of Ben Affleck in the batsuit and the batmobile, and Jessie Eisenberg playing Lex Luthor. They also talk about tv series season finales like Once Upon A Time, Castle, Agents of SHIELD, Person of Interest, Revenge, The Black List, The Goldbergs and Arrow. Tons of movie and television discussion which makes this a good episode for catching up on entertainment news.

Bombad Radio: Episode 147 gives a quick recap of their past Mass Effect coverage and interviews before announcing their plans to renew coverage as things get heated up for Mass Effect 4 which will be getting press at this year’s E3. After that, they talk with Jeopardy champion Arthur Chu. I know, it’s an odd choice of a guest for podcast that typically features Star Wars, film and video game celebrities, but it’s actually kind of interesting. Arthur talks about what’s involved in getting on the show, how you can prep for it, and the fallout of going viral. He also talks about voice over work, a field he’s trying to break out in.

Episode 148 has a nice audio recording of Nick Gillard’s panel at Salt Lake Fan Experience. Nick Gillard is the stunt coordinator who choreographed the lightsaber fights for the prequels. He talks about becoming a stunt man, the hardest stunts, working on Indiana Jones, sword fighting with the Star Wars actors, his favorite stunt, choreographing the fights and much more. The Q&A at the end asked him about the Grievous versus Obi-Wan scene, what actor was the hardest to work with (which turned out to be Ian) and some funny off the wall questions. Good episode to check out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
