222: Hindsight and 2020

And just like that, 2019 is over, and 2020 is upon us! Last year, we made a whooooole bunch of predictions for how 2019 was going to go, and now it’s time to crack open that audio time capsule and see how well it bears out, along with making some new predictions for this year! Did…did we get anything right? We did? Cool!

Plus: what better way to start a new decade than with Character Storm?

Minus: news this week, as nothing has happened yet this year. Nothing!

168: Stop Trying to Make Sage Happen

This week we’re talking about “pet characters”! Whether it’s the writer’s own creation or just one they’re a fan of, some writers and artists keep going back to the same characters: Peter David loves Marlo Chandler, Brian Michael Bendis loves Luke Cage, Todd McFarlane loves capes, and Chris Claremont just can’t quit you, Sage!

Also: we touch on the sad, sudden passing of legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle, try to keep up with comic movie release date musical chairs, and play a fun new game with our trusty deck of 1991 Marvel trading cards!

What will it mean for his Marvel creations and titles? What could his first moves at DC be? And what’s the reason for the move? We take a look back at Bendis’ Marvel legacy (whoops!), indulge in a little wild speculation and rumour-mongering, and talk about what we’d like to see from his new DC career!
