This week's New Comic Book Day fell on Veteran's Day. We at the Altered Egos Comics Podcast ask that you take a moment to remember that heroes don't wear capes, they wear dog tags. We cover the new and outstanding titles released on 11/11/2015 and look ahead to New Comic Book Day 11/18/2015.
** EXPLICIT LANGUAGE WARNING! **
We have a Special Edition Ramble On for you this week. Back in Episode 49 (Seven To The Power Of Two), Zack had us Ramble On about the Marvel Hip Hop Variant Covers and the retailer details behind ordering the covers. This week, we bring you the first in a multi-part look at the covers and the albums that inspired them.
Wearing many hats (some of which can't even be named), Zane Schott is hip hop historian and appreciator, with deep knowledge of the roots of rap on into its present forms. Badr Milligan is the host of the Short Box Podcast (shortboxjax.com), a Jacksonville, FL based podcast that focuses on comic-book and pop-culture entertainment. Jonathan hosts Zane and Badr, and together they start the exploration of the books, the albums, and if the choice to marry the two together is only a pastiche or if there might be a deeper link.
The original crew that started this episode then come back for your weekly recommendations.
