This week’s CBF podcast runs 49 minutes.

Tim is back from Ireland with stories of Leprechauns,  Blarney Stones, and an Irish Forbidden Planet. We get into a little more Green Lantern while we await the Blackest Night story line hitting the DC universe this summer. I review  Ghost Rider 32 and 33. Really interesting take on the Ghost Rider and Spirit of Vengeance mythology. Jason Aaron, who is also writing Wolverine: Weapon X, changes the Ghost Rider origins and creates a new environment and characters. It has a Hellblazer and Buffy feel to it, and peaked my interest enough to follow through. We’ll see where Jason can take Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch.

Tim has been reading Captain America and I may have to pick up a few issues after hearing his review. Ed Brubaker, who also writes DareDevil, has been pumping out a great story for the Captain. With Steve Rogers assassinated at the conclusion of the Civil War story line, Bucky (aka Winter Soldier) takes up the shield. I make a few mistakes on who Bucky is, confusing him with Nomad.

My local comic shop suggested House of Mystery to me. I was blown away by the first graphic novel. I haven’t read anything this well done since Gaiman’s Sandman, or maybe Fables. Written by Bill Willingham and Matthew Sturges, the House of Mystery is Cain’s house which used to be located in The Dreaming. Cain finds his house has gone  missing one afternoon which is the start of the new series.  Anyone can find the house, which is also a Tavern, from any alley, from any time, and from any place, which includes Fairy and other realms where magic is common place. The taps are always flowing, the kitchen always full, and the currency is story telling. Amazingly well written and drawn, House of Mystery just went to the top of my must read comic book list.
