Talking Comics – Discussing This Week's Upcoming Titles From Kaptara To Empire Uprising, Black Vortex, Convergence & More!

By Randy Young and Chris Hunter

Bleeding Cool welcomes the return of Talking Comics, from Excalibur Comics, Cards, and Games in Shreveport, Louisiana, to discuss this week's upcoming books, speculating about where they are headed, and discuss their favorite storylines.

Hosts Randy Young and Chris Hunter say:

Thanks for pressing play!

Not a ton of new books this week, but some interesting books nonetheless!

Kaptara has been described by its creator, Chip Zdarsky, as "gay Saga", (his words, folks, I swear!) so if that's in your wheel house, have fun with that!

Mark Waid and Barry Kitson bring back Golgoth with Empire Rising and we can't wait to see how the story of ruling the world while trying to hold on to everything continues!

Black Vortex wraps up this week and Convergence continues on with even more stories of your favorite DC characters from the Crisis on Infinite Earths era!

So many of our regular titles ship this week as well, and we can't wait to see how Lazarus, Black Hood, Hulk and more will blow our minds with comic-y awesomeness!

Don't forget the Question of the Week! Some big (or small?) things are coming from Marvel Studios in July and we want to know what you think!
