House to Astonish

Paul and Al are back with another 90 minutes of comics chat, discussing Amazon's purchase of Comixology, the launches of Grayson, Multiversity and Earth 2: World's End, and Warren Ellis's relaunch of the Project: Superpowers universe, and presenting reviews of Skinned, Batman: Eternal and Transformers: Windblade. Westley, what about the OHOTOHOTMU? Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe? I don't think they exist.

Al and Paul make the most of a quiet but spider-heavy couple of weeks, with discussion of Original Sin 3.1-3.4, Original Sins, Spider-Man 2099, Spider-Verse and Amazing Spider-Man's huge preorders, along with Grant Morrison and Rian Hughes' new comic for the BBC and Vertigo's new detective series Bodies. There are also reviews of Inhuman, Aquaman and the Others and Dead Letters (with some spoilers). Sometimes the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe shines on unkind people.

Don't forget that House to Astonish Live is taking place in Edinburgh on May 31; tickets are available at, with all profits going to Alzheimer Scotland.
