News includes: Ed Piskor is creating X-Men: Grand Design remixing years of X-Men continuity, Daniel Dae Kim replaces Ed Skrein in Hellboy, Terry Moore’s Strangers in Paradise is coming to the big screen, DC’s Ragman is getting an upgrade, and more!

With everything that’s been going on at the Crisis On Infinite Midlives Home Office (goodbye flood, hello nine-foot curtain hanging!), we’ve been a little late to the party on Marvel’s latest Netflix series, The Defenders. Again, this is purely because of unrelated life events, and is in no way related to the fact that the final count for Rob falling asleep through Iron Fist, Marvel’s last Netflix series, stands at six. And that’s not a final count, because it includes the final episode. But we digress.
This past weekend, we finally caught Marvel’s second attempt at putting together a filmed superhero team, and we discuss the effort. Including what worked, what was fun and interesting and surprising, why Netflix can’t seem to create a superhero series of ANY length that doesn’t feel like it’s dragging in the middle, and why Iron Fist is the Poochie of filmed superhero drama.
We also discuss:
Action Comics #987, written by Dan Jurgens, with art by Viktor Bogdanovic, and
Mr. Miracle #2, written by Tom King with art by Mitch Gerads!
This show was recorded live to tape. Which is why you will learn the etymology of the phrase “Kneel before Zuck!”
Derf Backderf, author of My Friend Dahmer and a onetime garbage man, is back with Trashed, a book that defies pigeonholing. Part history, part awareness-raiser, part fictionalized reminiscence, part gross-out humor fest (and a few other “parts” as well), Trashed seems like a book that shouldn’t work, but does. In this episode, Tim interviews Derf about Trashed, the Dahmer movie, and more; plus, Tim and Kumar review Trashed!

It’s a big podcast this week and Eric Shea is only there for part of it. That’s right, while Eric is away at a wedding, Reggie fills in for the news, mail and other stuff…including his 5 books as well! We find out a bunch of things, but mainly that Jim eats like a New York pigeon or homeless man. Enjoy!
