Each week, ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims and Matt Wilson host the War Rocket Ajax podcast, their online audio venue for interviews with comics creators, reviews of the books of the week, and whatever else they want to talk about. ComicsAlliance is offering clips of the comics-specific segments of the show several days before the full podcast goes up at WarRocketAjax.com on Mondays.
This week, it’s Chris is back from Emerald City and he's talking to Matt about three of the big comic releases of the week: Detective Comics #30 by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, Dead Letters #1 by Christopher Sebela and Chris Visions, and Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #200 by Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez and a bunch of other artists.

Directed by Wes Armstrong and starring Devin White in the title role, the short, low-budget film employs some clever cutting techniques that remind one of Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright's work on the sitcom Spaced, showing how just a few bucks and some ingenuity can go a long way...

Miles Morales is only a few fan months old, but the new star of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1 by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli is wasting no time populating -- at least vicariously -- Marvel's videogames...
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1 ships today, giving us our first real look at Miles Morales, the new half-black, half-Hispanic Ultimate Spider-Man.
