Comic Timing Episode 167 – Powers: Episodes 1-4


A new challenger has entered the original streaming content arena! The first four episodes of Sony’s Powers, based on the Brian Michael Bendis comic of the same name, have been released, and we’re here to talk about them! The first episode is available for free on YouTube for those of you who are interested, but either don’t own a Playstation or don’t have Playstation Plus, by the way.

Ian is joined this episode by returning guests, Austin Cantrell and Kris, to discuss the show in depth. Does it hit the mark, or leave us wanting more? Does the show need a new lighting guy? And how does it compare to the comic, anyway? We also meander into conversation on Kingsman: The Secret Service, Constantine, and superhero shows in general. Are we approaching a glut of content, or can television and streaming handle all of these capes? Listen in to find out!
