Comics Onscreen – 2016 Year in Review

Marvel Studios

In this last episode of 2016, Curt and Kevin look back on TV and movie adaptations of comic book stories from the second half of the year, pick their favorite small- or big-screen comics properties of the last 12 months, and ask “Just what makes a good comics adaptation, anyway?”

In this non-canonical extravaganza, we also tackle the disjointed mess that is Suicide Squad, check in on DC’s improving Legends of Tomorrow, discuss Season 3 of The Flash and Flashpoint, take aim at the fifth season of Arrow, unlock the first season of Luke Cage, and stumble through a punishing half-season of The Walking Dead.

We also touch on Preacher, Doctor Strange and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. before looking ahead to 2017, including the adaptations we’re most looking forward to. And finally, we switch gears with a look at the books that made it into The Comics Canon in 2016, and round things out with that most riveting of audio experiences: the unwrapping of presents!

Other Things Discussed in This Episode:

  • Hey, Where’s Darth Vader?!
  • Gotham City Sirens
  • Ragman, everyone’s favorite vigilante
  • Why are Marvel’s Netflix series so long?
  • Iron Man and the Mystic Hoo-Ha

That’s it for 2016! Join us in two weeks as we travel to a galaxy far, far away for a look at Marvel Comics’ Darth Vader #1-6 (we really mean it this time).
