Journey Into Amazing Episode 001

Well, I have been busy doing things. Things like moving and working and just about anything other than writing about comics on this blog. But I warned you something was coming, and now it has arrived.

Welcome to the first episode of Journey Into Amazing, a new podcast about two dudes (myself and co-host Ariel Esteban Cayer) reading their way through all 700 issues of Amazing Spider-Man.

This week we jump right in with the first five issues, written by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, and featuring the first appearances of The Chameleon, The Vulture, Dr. Octopus and The Sandman.

In the second half of the show, we talk about some more recent comics, including Trillium #3, Mara #6, some Robocop mini-series and Mighty Avengers #1 and #2.

I'm super-excited about this project and it seems like the perfect excuse for me to start posting on this blog again. Rising from the ashes, etc.

Please help spread the word by sharing, tweeting, tumblring and facebooking. And tell us what you think in the comments below. In the near-future, we'll have a dedicated page for this podcast on tumblr, where we will also be posting panels from the comic books we review, but I will continue to cross-post new episodes to this blog each week.
