Episode 010 - "Darth Vader 16-25 and Doctor Aphra 1 & 2"

What happens with two guys who have very short podcasts get together to talk about Star Wars comic books? We get really long winded and char for nearly 2 hours!

We are almost all caught up on in our quest to chat about all the comics we missed in the last year. Maybe one more episode, and then we should be back on track!

For now, we're talking about the last two story lines from the Darth Vader series; "The Shu-Turon War" issues 16-19, and "End of Games," issues 21-25, as well as Doctor Aphra, issues 1 & 2.

Episode 009 - We're Back for 2017!

After a year (and then some) away from the mic, Allen Voivod and Tim McMahon are back with The Expanded Comicverse!

This is our monthly show where we discuss all the new Star Wars comics from Marvel Comics.  This first episode of 2017 is just us catching up a bit, and discussing two of the storylines from 2016.  We promise that we will soon catch up and be back on schedule with episodes where we talk about the comics that just came out.  Thanks for your patience!

It's that time of month once again…  or, it was a week ago at least… for The Expanded Comicverse!  This is our monthly recap, review and in depth discussion about all things Star Wars Comic Books!

My apologies for the delay.  This episode should have been out last week, but "real life" continues to intrude on my Star Wars-ing.

This episode is just Allen Voivod and myself, as our planned guest, Michael Corley, wasn't able to join us.  But don't worry, we hope to have him back next month.

So, if you like to listen to two nerds sit back and ramble on and on, then this is the show for you!

(originally published July 31, 2015)

With the closing of another month, that means it's time for The Expanded Comicverse, our show where we like to recap, review and chat about all the newest Star Wars comics from Marvel Comics.

This month we talk about the five titles that hit the shelves in July with Catrina Dennis. Catrina hosts her own podcast about Star Wars comics called The Mos Eisley Comic Port Podcast (as well as having many other cool online projects!). Be sure to check it out!

This month we continue our discussion about Boba Fett, and ask once again, is he the galaxies greatest bounty hunter, or just a guy who got lucky on one job. We also compare Obi-Wan Kenobi to Bat-Man, and try to guess the fate of Janus Kasmir, friend of Kanan Jarrus. Also, we discuss the hobbies of Emperor Palpatine, and Allen and I try to prove ourselves to the gentlemen.

Just a note, Skype was not cooperating with us when we recorded. So, you willfind a few passages with a bit of static or something that sounds like wind. Our apologize for the issue, but please note that these moments do not last long. Thank you.

Episode 006 - "Star Wars #6, Darth Vader #6, Princess Leia #4 and Kanan The Last Padawan #3"

(originally published June 28, 2015)

Another month comes to a close, and that means it's time for The Expanded Comicverse, our monthly show were we recap, review and go into just a little bit too much detail about all the new Star Wars comic books from Marvel Comics.

This month, Allen and I and joined by Matt Moore, half of the team behind the great new Star Wars comics themed podcast, "Comics with Kenobi".

This time around we ask if Boba Fett isn't the bad-ass we all think he is when we discuss Star Wars #6, we wonder if a father and son can bond through anger when talking about Darth Vader #6, we skirt the line of bad taste (and maybe cross it) when discussing the social issues presenting in Princes Leia #4, and then we try to anticipate whats next for Kanan, when we dive into the third issue of his series.

This month was a lot of fun.  We hope you have a listen, even if you're not reading the current batch of Star Wars comics.  Much of our conversation is about Star Wars themes and characters in general, not just what happens within the pages of these funny books!  Thanks!

Show Outline...
Star Wars #6 - 7:20
Darth Vader #6 - 41:10
Princess Leia #4 - 1:06:3-
Kanan The Last Padawan #3 - 1:32:00

A new month brings a new episode of The Expanded Comicverse, our monthly show were we recap, review and go a little too deep into the newest Star Wars comics from Marvel!

This month we welcome Mike and Joao from the CantinaCast Podcast ( as our special guests.  These guys bring a level of "sophistication" to the show like no others!  ;-)  (I'd try to explain that comment, but…  you'll just have to listen!)

Also, this month, we bring you a second, bonus issue!  You see, we recorded our regular episode on Monday the 1st.  Then, on Wednesday the 3rd, a new issue of Star Wars was released.  This issue has a "twist" that is all over social media!   People are talking about it so much, that Allen & I knew we couldn't wait a whole month before discussing!  So, here you go, two episodes at once.  Enjoy!

The regular episode...

And, the very special Bonus Episode...

Episode 004 - "Star Wars #4, Darth Vader #4, Princess Leia #3 and Kanan The Last Padawan #1"

(originally posted May 2, 2015)

Alright, it's the beginning of a new month, so that means it is time to talk comics!  This month on The Expanded Comicverse, Allen and I sit down to chat to "Lumberjack" Nick Diak.  Nick, a former guest of on The Expanded Fandomverse, (listen to his episode HERE), asked to join us this month, and since he's such a good guy, who were we to say no?  ;-)

This month we discuss Star Wars #4, Darth Vader #4, Princess Leia #3, and the newest title, Kanan: The Last Padawan #1.  During the course of our conversation we debate what are the most discussing things in the Star Wars Galaxy, we contemplate the greatness that is "The Girl From Ipanema", and we discuss weather or not describing a comic book as "comic booky" is a negative thing or not.

And, be sure to check out Nicks great work online!
