Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:Movies The Ruin Childhoods” kicks off with Amy’s report from Paleyfest including stuff on Outlander, Flash, Arrow and Tron. As an aside, I’m kinda surprised by how apathetic they were toward Tron: Legacy. Scott hasn’t seen it, Jeff didn’t like it, and Amy is the only one who did enjoy it. I, on the other hand, really enjoyed the new Tron. Beyond that, they also talk about Guardians of the Galaxy and Groot’s aversion to dancing in front of Drax, Agent Carter comments about the future, J.J. Abrams’ comments, the 20 new books for Journey To Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: Aftermath, and the female Ghostbuster movie. Their main discussion is on whether movies can ruin your childhood and the use of phrase as of late, which is an interesting topic. They also touch on whether or not we’re heading for a superhero burnout.

Our Very Own Marvel Civil War” starts off with a discussion of Pixels and the recently released trailer before heading into a March Madness tournament discussion for Marvel characters. They start out with a bunch of character, have them face off against each other, then each hosts/guest says which one should win. Whoever gets the most votes proceeds to the next round until there’s an ultimate victor. I have to be honest, it runs a bit long. At first it was neat, but as it dragged on, the discussion struggled to keep my interest. I think it might have worked better as a smaller segment spread out over several episodes rather than doing it all at once.

Fish’s End, Leia’s Story & Supergirl’s Costume” begins with some discussion on the new Avengers trailer, the Groot comic, and thoughts on Gotham and Toy Story 4. Then they have guest Jenna Busch on to talk about Princess Leia #1, and guests Andy Behbakht (The Flash Podcast) and Rebecca Johnson (Supergirl Radio) to talk and speculate about The Flash television show and the upcoming Supergirl show. I didn’t enjoy this episode as much. For starters, Princess Leia #1 was one of the worst Star Wars comics I’ve read in a while so there was a disconnect there. That in turn wasn’t helped too much by their next guests as I haven’t watched The Flash. Wasn’t a whole lot for me to connect with on this episode. However, if you enjoyed Princess Leia #1 and are a fan of The Flash, you’ll probably enjoy it. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

shea-standefer-jainaIf you’re into cosplay and/or the EU, you probably stand a good chance of recognizing Shea Standefer, since she’s pretty much the penultimate Jaina Solo cosplayer.  While you may know her for her love of the EU and cosplay, she is also a talented artist, and I’ve been following Shea’s career since our days together on a discussion forum.  With talent, determination and hard work, Shea’s love of Star Wars has been rewarded.  She is now an official Star Wars artist, with an official print that will be available at CEII, and she shared some of her process for The Dancers’ Pit with Roqoo Depot.  You can read our interview with Shea after the cut.
