Posted by on Oct 21, 2014 in HOLD322, This Week | 0 comments

nickybrendanThis week on Hold 322… WOW! DC dropped a big chunk of news this week, and we’ve got it all! And if that’s not enough, we have news on Scarlett Johansson and Molly Ringwald! In comics, the weeklies continue with Sixis (Axis), World’s End and Edge of the Spider Verse. Avengers World ends its first big story arc (and that does it for me) and we get the new adventures of the latest Doctor Who… oh yeah, and Wolverine is dead. Bob asks: “Do you ever get frustrated with fellow geeks?”

All this and find out who got busted in Boise! Face front, true believers! It’s Hold 322!

Edge of the Spider-Verse – Review

Posted by on Oct 14, 2014 in Hey Fanboy!, JC's Jocularity | 0 comments

Spider-Gwen-1-Cover-Robbi-Rodriguez-2387bSo we lost a good portion of the audio for issue #140, where I took some time to talk about Marvel’s Edge of the Spider-Verse weekly comic. This is a series I almost didn’t pick up, despite my friendly-neighborhood comic-book retailer dropping it in Hold 322. But the first issue was Spider-Man Noir, which was a limited series a while back. I enjoyed that LS, so I figured I’d give it a shot. I could always cancel…

Instead, I’ve gotten 4 issues of solid gold stories. Enough that I want this to be a regular series, once the big Spider-Event is finished. Good news there, to some degree… it was announced at NYCC that Spider-Gwen (EoSV #2) will get an ongoing series by Jason Latour and Robbi Roderiguez. And while it’s good to get the Spider-Gwen, I think Marvel needs to bring back an old series… The Web of Spider-Man, but rather than focusing on 616’s Peter Parker, it could be used as a “what if” where maybe Spider-Britain (who appears in ASM #7) could be observing the “web that only the Spider avatars can navigate,” seeing awesome stories throughout whatever remains of the Mighty Marvel Multiverse.

So what makes me want this? Well, let’s dive into the Spider-Verse…

eosv-noirEoSV #1 – David Hine returns to pen a tale of his epic Spider-Man Noir. Noir is not your “friendly neighborhood Spider-Man” he’s fairly dark, and brutal in his personal war on crime during the great depression. Great story, and a great return for the character, who winds up on Superior’s Spider-Team.


eosv-gwenEoSV #2 – Spider-Gwen! This one is awesome! and a great gift to both fans of Gwen Stacy and those who love alternate histories. Peter becomes the Lizard? Capt. Stacy starts hunting Spider-Woman? Gwen is the drummer in a band called “The Mary Janes”? This story is awesome, and I’m glad Latour and Roderiguez get to continue it.

One fun part of this, turns out the band “Married with Sea Monsters” are friends with Robbi Roderiguez, and he inspired them to record “Face it Tiger,” a song they’re trying to get right in the story…

eosv-aikmenEoSV #3 – If you’re a fan of anime, you’ll love this one. Aaron Aikman is the Spider-Man, who uses a combination of radioactive spider-powers and mecha technology to battle the forces of evil. What I liked about this one is that they didn’t get a manga artist. I liked the “American style” of the artwork, letting the story speak for itself, without throwing it in our face that this is an anime/manga.

eosv-horrorEoSV #4 – THIS. This is the one that will hook you. A horror story of Spider-Man. I had to take a walk after reading this just to shake it off… it’s just the right amount of creepy. And you’re kinda happy when Morlun shows up at the end.

So there you have it, true believers! You’re just 4 in, and with the exception of #2, you’ll likely find all of these issues on the shelves at your local comic book retailer. AND, as Bob 616 will remind you, all are available from Marvel Unlimited and Comixology. So pick ‘em up, and let me know what you think in the comments!

140 – Hold 322 – Now where were we?

Posted by on Oct 14, 2014 in HOLD322, This Week | 0 comments


(EDITOR’S NOTE: Hiya, Jeff here. There’s a bit of an issue with the audio of the 2nd half of the show. Stick with it, folks, it’ll all be ok.)

This week on Hold 322! The triumphant trio is back in the studio! Halloween ComicFest is returning. Marvel and DC are both starting weekly end-of-the-world events. The “Interstellar Special Ability Team” (Guardians of the Galaxy) is getting an animated series. We’re also well into the “Season of Geek” with comic book television now that Flash and Arrow have started… just waiting on Constantine… so what could possibly ruin this for us? Keanu Reeves. Bob asks: “what villain would you be afraid to run into in a dark alley ?”

All this and Robert Downey Jr.! Face front, true believers! It’s Hold 322!

139 – Hold 322 – Comical Comic Con Title

Posted by on Oct 7, 2014 in HOLD322 | 0 comments


This week on Hold 322 was our weekend at the 2014 Salt Lake Comic Con, where we did a live show and competed with Leonard Nimoy Skyping in… yeah, you can guess who won… still, we will put on a good show for a full house or a few awesome, and loyal friends! We had a winner of the grand prize (yep, he chased down a Thom card) and it’s Branden Ushio! We talk about our fun at Con, our appearance in Salt City Strangers, and some news bits that we heard or learned over the weekend. Bob asks: “What’s your favorite part of the Con?” And the audience asks many questions of us.

All this, and interviews with Gigi Edgely and Jason Williams! Face front, true believers! It’s Hold 322!

Into the world of “What If” again, as the whereabouts of our beloved JC remain a mystery, and the DefenMedia pines away in angsty weeping, Bob 616, Robert J Defendi, The Mountain of Love joins JM Bell and Ultimate Bob Easton to carry on, with stiff upper lips, stout hearts of oak, and buckets of fortitude to spare, with the show.

Boom. There.

Posted by on Sep 23, 2014 in HOLD322 | 0 comments


Another week without our actual Salt Lake ComicCon 2014 show, so, bravely, we soldier on, step by step. How do we live? Day by day.

JC and Bob 616 were Shakespeareing again this week, so, J.M. Bell & Bob Defendi, the Mountain of Love, welcomed Aaron Burton from Geekhead Radio into the studio for an afternoon of geek talk, comic pondering, and news (as you can see below) that actually matters. It’s an entertaining romp through the universes you know and love, true believers!
