Greg Elwell, Kyle Roberts and Matt Price talk about “Wolverine: First Class,” #1 ”Secret History of the Authority – Hawksmoor” #1, “Army of Darkness/Xena: Why Not” #1 and “Transhuman” #1 on this week’s comics podcast at newsok.com.
About “Secret History of the Authority: Hawksmoor” #1:
Matt Price: I thought this had a decent feel with what you had of the early “Authority.”
Greg Elwell: Well, maybe … There are some good ideas in there. I certainly enjoyed Hawksmoor using the city to fight the robot, but, I dunno. The love story aspect – I wish there was one or the other. But the nice thing is, a lot of characterization.
About “Wolverine: First Class”:
Kyle Roberts: I liked it. It’s kind of the early 80s X-Men. I really like all the facial expressions from Shadowcat and Wolverine, and the personality that shows through for both of them. … It’s written very well.
About “Army of Darkness/Xena”:
Greg Elwell: I was not ever a huge Xena the Warrior Princess fan … when I did tune in, I’ll tell you the reason I did tune in: Bruce Campbell. … John Layman has done a really great job here by taking a couple of pretty wacky ideas and going full-tilt with them.
Matt Price: They’re taking it kind of tongue in cheek, and I think that’s the way to do it.
Greg Elwell: It’s an “A” in my book.
About “Transhuman” #1:
Matt Price: This is my favorite thing (Hickman) has done so far. It’s about two companies that are both trying to build the next generation of humans. … I really wanted to read more.
