It's Monday night and that means a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio! We're back talking comics. There's been a lot of brand new comics debuting over the past few weeks, and some very high-profile ones at that. We'll be discussing....
Angela: Asgard's Assassin - The character debuted in Spawn, but now is over at Marvel. After a stint in Guardians of the Galaxy, the character headlines her own series.
Bitch Planet - The most talked about comic of the past week. This comic shows how you can take on social and political issues within an entertaining story.
Deathlok - The classic character who was an integral part of last season's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets its own series.
Secret Six - We loved the pre-New 52 version of the series, but how does this new team and relaunch stack up?
So join us this Monday and let us know your thoughts about these new series! You can call in or Tweet us your thoughts @graphicpolicy
So much has happened since the portal to Asgard opened at the end of season one of Witches of East End. Frederick has been reunited with his family, but he wasn’t the only person (or thing) who came through the portal. There is a dark presence roaming the woods and neighborhoods, killing people. Ingrid has been losing big chunks of time. Dash and Killian have their powers back, and have formed new and surprising relationships. Join Amy (@AmyVRO) and Lucia (@HeroineTV) as they discuss the first four episodes of season two of Witches of East End, on Sunday, August 10 at 6:00pm ET.

Happy Post New Comic Book Day. Not a big week for me but some of my favorite issues were out this week. Including the Buffy Season 10 episode 3, where Nicholoas Brendon takes the pen and writes on his most memorable episode villain.. DRACULA. It was very reminiscent of the show. Also, Original Sin is back along with the weekly Batman Eternal and Future's End. I will be talking about preparing to go to Indy Pop Con next weekend!!

I have a pretty good comic book haul this week. The standouts are Elektra #1 and Original Sins #0 by Marvel. Buffy The Vampire Slayer is still kind of confusing me, but I am still enjoying reading it. And my 2 DC titles this week is the on going Batman Eternal series (which has drawn me in) and the new Justice League United #0 that I am on the fence about. I also received my copy of The Chair by Peter Simeti. What did you all get this week? Let's talk about it!

On the Veteran’s Day Weekend edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable discusses Thor: The Dark World! Is it better than the first film? Does it have the same pacing problems? Does setting most of the film in Asgard solve those problems? Can Chris Hemsworth’s Thor now be considered the definitive version? Does he “own” the role in the same manner that Robert Downey Jr. “owns” Tony Stark/Iron Man? Is he as vital to his own franchise? Is Loki now the definitive villain of the Marvel cinematic universe? Does he deserve such a distinction? Where does the franchise go from here?
We’ll also be celebrating the 20 anniversary of Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Is it truly the best of the Clan’s group albums? Can the solo albums be considered group albums as well? How has it held up over the past two decades? Does it still retain the same power? Does the minimalist approach to the production hopelessly date the entire album? Have the Clan’s contributions to Hip-Hop proved lasting, or fleeting? Which songs, if any, have stood the test of time? Which member shines the most? Does the Clan still matter?
Last but certainly not least, we also celebrate the 20 anniversary Midnight Marauders! Was it a fitting end to Tribe’s “holy trinity” of classic albums? Is it as good as The Low End Theory or People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm? Is it musically superior to those albums? Does it represent Tribe at the height of their creative and commercial powers? Can it be considered the greatest single achievement to emerge from The Native Tongues? What has the album’s ultimate legacy been?

In the aftermath of Marvel's "Thor" and "Marvel's The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
CASA sponsors this event to raise funds and awareness in support of children who’ve been abused or neglected. Join us as we welcome guests Josh Rodriguez and his son Santiago who will be particpating in the event and Cosplayer Robin Johnson.
Superman was adopted. Spiderman was raised by his aunt and uncle. Batman grew up with his butler, Alfred, and later took in Robin to raise as his ward. Thor was kicked out of Asgard by his dad but eventually reunified with his family. Few superheroes grew up in a typical family situation raised by their own parents, yet they all accomplished great things as adults. CASA, a nonprofit that advocates for children who’ve experienced abuse or neglect, believes all children deserve the chance to grow up happy and healthy and become superhero adults themselves.
That’s why the CASA programs of Travis and Williamson counties are hosting the 4 Annual CASA Superhero Run. This run raises funds and awareness to provide children who’ve been abused or neglected with the powerful voice of their very own CASA volunteer. Children with CASA volunteers are more likely to end up with family, more likely to receive therapy, health care and education, more likely to do better in school, less likely to be bounced from one place to another, and less likely to get stuck in long-term foster care than children without CASA.
