Cape Town Community Podcast – Ep. 018 – “Do Androids Dream of Electric Stink?”

This was a big week fat week for comic books that offered a lot of good reads. Scott Snyder and Kyle Higgins expand the Bat-Universe with Batman: Gates of Gotham, James Peatty’s wonderful Supergirl story-arc comes to an end, a cavalcade of fantastic creators offered up trio of fun Rocketeer stories in IDW’s Rocketeer Adventures #1, and Jeff Parker has us wondering what Bruce Banner’s androids sound like in Hulk #33.

Cape Town Comic Discussion
00:08:20 Batman Gates of Gotham #1: We both enjoyed the latest exploration into Gotham’s rich (and probably dark) history.
00:13:10 X-Men Giant-Size #1: Another solid X-Men story that refuses to go over the heads of readers only slightly familiar with the enormous X-Universe.
00:16:52 Avengers Vs. New Ultimates #4: Millar has us loving the Ultimate Universe as much as we ever have.
00:21:44 Invincible Iron-Man #504: Fraction demonstrates how high the stakes have become in this Fear Itself crossover. But how far is five meters?
00:27:21 Supergirl #64: James Peatty’s current arc concludes on another high note.
00:33:12 Uncanny X-Force #10: We both agree that this is the best X-book we’re reading.
00:37:10 Hulk #33: Hey, what do Banner’s droids sound like?
00:42:41 T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #7: Nick Spencer, Cafu, Mike Grell and Nick Dragotta have offered up another amazing issue from this unsung series.
00:46:24 Batman and Robin #23: It’s Batman and Robin versus some serious beefcake!
00:53:00 Rocketeer Adventures #1: Everyone pours their hearts into this book celebrating Dave Stevens’ amazing hero.
00:59:05 Last Mortal #1: Jerry enjoyed this take on immortality, but Don was put off by some of the dialogue.
Cape Town News Discussion
01:03:28: We opt to focus on a single news rumor this week—that DC might restart most—if not all—of their titles. We share our thoughts on how we would refresh some of DC’s most iconic properties: Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and the Justice League of America.
