My podcast this week talks about Frank Miller’s Will Eisner’s The Spirit. My podcast doesn’t think that it’s a very good movie. My podcast isn’t one of those other “bad movie” podcasts, though, it’s actually a comic book podcast, one that only on rare occasions dips its big toe into bad movies. My podcasts talks about the dad from Wonder Years being in this movie for the appropriate amount of time.
My podcast also features some hot new comic book news, and something in the Warmup that, if you didn’t know it yet, is new to you!
It’s that time of year again! No not to get your fishin’ license and go looking for Aquaman! It’s Father’s Day this weekend! So we look at superhero dads who you may not have known had gone out & made a baby…. or two… or three… or 45 in the case of Wolverine. Is deadbeat dad his new mutation?!? We talk about that and kids from Superman, Batman, Colossus (Are you my papa, tovarisch?) and many more. We debate whether Tony Stark had a vasectomy at 25 or developed an extremis condom. Either is possible. And yes, we actually discuss it. We’re nerds. We also have a warm up bit with a game of 20 questions, and lots of news including Spiderman at the BLM protests, the police bizarrely using the Punisher logo, the new DC distribution deal and the sad passing of a comics legend, Denny O’ Neil.
Recorded a few weeks back: From the tome of Fletcher Hanks comes a Dramatic Reading like no other! Bry, Kyle and Merk bring you another inexplicable tale of STARDUST THE SUPER WIZARD… this time with a video option!
You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts. This week, we dedicate time to talking about the crazy, the absurd, and the just plain chemically imbalanced. How messed up is The Hulk these days (very), is The Tick legally insane (yep), and is Doctor Strange secretly delusional (it depends)?
All that and hot Jackpot (who?) and Sandman news, and we pit some superheroes against the apocalypse in the Warm Up!
