Double Feature The Bendis Tapes Pt1 and G4's Blair Butler and Kevin Mellon

 Download The MP3 Here
In part 1 of the latest Bendis Tapes we go over Brian's Summer vacation. You'll hear about the Powers TV pilot shoot in Chicago, and his adventures in the Windy City.

Then we get behind the scene details of the developments in Ultimate Spider-Man. Brian tells us what led to the creation of Miles Morales and the controversies that followed. You'll get Bendis's rebuttals to claims made by right wing pundits like Matt Drudge and Glen Beck.

We also get details on what's coming up in the pages of Bendis's Avengers titles, from working with Neal Adams and the return of Gabriel Del Otto, to Daredevil joining the team.

Then, G4's Fresh Ink comics reviewer Blair Butler has joined the ranks of comic book writers with Heart, a new Image mini series co-created by artist Kevin Mellon. The two join me to talk about this MMA comic, the inspiration behind it, and the challenge of capturing the fastest growing action sport in comic book form. We also discuss the current news and trends in the comic book market.

Bendis sure can talk, but he's wrong about the new Spider-Man. He can curse and try to write circles around it, but this is an editorial mistake, one from which Brian is the leader, cause it's his name on the cover of every new ultimate spider-man comic. Since he's "bulletproof", nothing me or anyone else say is gonna reach him (and, anyway, the thing it's donne).
I love Bendis's work since Jinx and Goldfish. I'm sure he's gonna do good stories with the new spider-man, but, to me, no.
