351: What the #@$% is Going On!?

We’re all reeling from the bloodbath of cancelled projects at Warner Bros and HBO Max after David Zaslav’s Discovery FUSION-HA‘ed with Warner Brothers. The cancellation of Batgirl shocked the Internet and the impact of the takeover seems to keep spreading by the day. As we react to Warnergeddon, we also go through some other announced, scheduled, and even pre-existing projects that have met the corporate reaper’s blade. What can we expect for the future of DC, and perhaps WB as a whole? And along the way, let’s decide who should replace Ezra Miller as the Flash… and discover the secret of Alan Moore’s Five-Way Revenge!

But first there is other news, if you can believe it! The four-season – and completed – Infinity Train is erased from existence by Cartoon Network! It’s time for Guardians of the Galaxy: the Ride: the Comic! Chris Claremont shares some very uncensored opinions at C2E2, and oh ho ho you’d better believe the internet reacted.

And last but not least! We review and discuss LYCAN: SOLOMON’S ODDYSSEY, a new historical werewolf horror (but more!) graphic novel by Dennis Robinson, Sal Donaire, Ezequiel Dominguez and Joel Saavedra, published by Hive Head Studios. Spoilers: we dug it! And we’ll tell you why you may dig it too! [And incidentally, we’d love to do more indie reviews, so please reach out to us if you’re interested!]

330: It’s Disgusting Shakespeare, Is What It Is

Peacemaker cameth and wenteth, and we have many thoughts on what we have seen! How did the show rapidly evolve? What made it even possible? What parts do we especially love as shameless James Gunn fans? How amazing was that cast as a whole? What could possibly be in store for season two? And how about those last-episode cameos that we’re not sure if it’s cool to casually talk about in an episode description?? But we’ve got another special treat in honour of this hard-R foul gross-out romp: we don’t even TRY to bleep our swears or edit out our disgusting tangents! You’re welcome (we’re sorry)! May want to put in the headphones if there are kids around, seriously.

Oh, you think that’s all? Listen friend, don’t even worry about it, we’ve got multiple segments on this show! We talk about the new “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness” trailer, somehow both speculating and commenting on the state of over-speculation for literally everything. We’ve got news! Comixology updates and finally fully integrates with Amazon and nobody is happy about it, not even one bit! DC’s Wonder Twins are getting a movie on HBO Max (no, really)! And more!? And more!

312: Morbius, Morbius, Morbius, and Kevin Bacon

The Spooky Month continues, and this week it’s our spookiest trick yet – fixing a character! Namely, good ol’ living vampire Michael “Morbius” Morbius! Now Morbius is a perfectly fine science vampire, but for some reason we just can’t sink our teeth into the character as much as we’d like. So Merk, Bry ’n Kyle all reinvent the character in their own weird ways! So bite into this episode for some royal vampire intrigue, a cavern of underground monsters, and all the Australian blood and quokkas you can handle! Bwah! Plasma!!

But, oh no! The DC Fandome has descended on our podcast once more! To escape, we must discuss a bunch of the new DC movie teasers and decide which one looks the coolest! And we’re running out of air in here! Listen fast!

258: Hawkman Hits a Window

We pit the JSA against each other in a series of “Survivor” style scenarios! Green Lantern! The Flash! Atom! Hawkman! Sandman! The Spectre! Wonder Woman! Hourman! Black Canary! Dr. Fate! Which old-time superhero would survive being stranded in the woods? Working retail at Christmas? A galaxy-wide bar crawl with Hal Jordan? Social media? A Zack Snyder movie!? And more!!

236: Wonder Man is Your Responsibility

This week, we figure out who is the first among first among equals, with a very scientific, Tony Robbins-endorsed, leader-off! Cyclops, Nightwing, Captain America, Storm, Superman, Mister Fantastic, Black Panther: which one would you follow into battle? The answer may shock you!

Plus, we’ve absolutely lost our minds, and the news shows it.

218: Death by a Thousand Snyder Cuts

Release the Snyder Cut! I guess! There’s somehow still talk of this thing (possibly more talk, even), so this week, we’re coming up with our own Snyder Cuts. How do you fix a movie like Justice League, anyway? And how could you fix other movies in the same way?

Plus, we’re talking about comic book piracy. When indie books are being downloaded by the hundreds of thousands, and the creators are broke, is that cool? On the flipside, comic books are damned expensive, dawg. Like, real ‘spensive. We solve this problem*!

All that, and Kyle manages to contribute to the news for once.

Episode 12: Street Level – Does The Kingpin have Diabetes?

We’re taking it back to the streets this week, and that means Daredevil, Moon Knight, and other characters that are vaguely reminiscent of Batman! Plus, a heartfelt plea to DC Comics to stop being bad.

Episode 9: No Thank You On The Hypertime

Thanks to a temporal plot contrivance, the podcasters of three eras assemble to talk about time travel in comics… as the fate of the future hangs in the balance! Which basically means talking about the X-Men a lot. Also: Bishop vs. Cable, the best-ever use of Stryfe, three Thors are better than one, and the boys try (and fail) to explain Hypertime!
