This one was totally worth the wait. Remember Kevin from Loaded Dice? No? Well that means you probably haven’t been listening for that long and we forgive you. Kevin joined Doc Fluxx and Father Shepherd for an episode so stuffed with jolly antics and anecdotes it lasted about an hour and half. Why wait several months to release directors cut? Nothing but raw, unedited content this time around. Well, slightly edited…
This episode the boys talk Jared Leto’s Joker, Frank Miller’s inexplicable worship, slipping on banana peels, new upcoming comics and much more before answering fan queries in our popular Fanquisition segment. Fun was had by all.

We conclude our coverage of C2E2 2015 with a recap of the Caped Crusaders, Dynamic Duos and Darkest Knight panel (or just the Batman panel when it’s at home), featuring Batman writer Scott Snyder as moderator, with Batman Eternal writer James Tynion IV, Detective Comics writer Brian Buccallato, Gotham by Midnight writer Ray Fawkes, and the upcoming Robin: Son of Batman writer / artist Patrick Gleason.
So in this episode, we bring you a ton of audio clips of these guys (well, mostly Scott Snyder) talking about upcoming storylines in Detective Comics, Gotham by Midnight and Robin: Son of Batman… but at the time of this panel, we were only four days away from the conclusion of Batman: Endgame in the core Batman title, and only a week away from the debut of the new “RoboBunny” Batman in DC’s Free Comic Book Day offering, Divergence. So we feature a bunch of clips of Snyder and company talking about the new Batman, the process in creating him, the reasoning behind the new direction, and a few new tidbits about him that you might not have heard elsewhere, all from the mouths of the creators!
And, since Batman #40 has been released since this panel, we not only feature several clips of Snyder talking about what Batman: Endgame means to him, but we review and discuss the issue!
Thanks for listening to our C2E2 coverage. We return to our normal weekly schedule on Sunday, May 3rd, with an episode about Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a couple of very cool guests!
We spend a very long time talking about Cho and Rodriguez. Then Drinking. Then thinking up a motto. Eventually we jump to Marvels and just can’t deal with BUCKY BARNES 3 and 4. Overwrought, over complicated, confusing, and dumb. We like CAPTAIN MARVEL 11 is a Christmas issue so I love that. SHIELD 2 makes me smile with Kamala trolling superhero websites and memorizing B villain weapons. We get to SILVER SURFER 8 reveals a planet of Galactus survivors. Continuing on with Slott we check out AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 12+13 with Victorian spider eating people. THOR 4 develops all arguments really well; with Original Recipe Thor conceding the title. UNCANNY X-MEN 30 probably ruins the continuum by talking to Charles be cause she just soooo moral and superior and ethical and smart. CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 brings us a better Cap replacement book than Remender wrote with actual Cap…Visit Spider Woman 3 with concubine Jess and spider poop that irritates us. PIRATE CONCUBINE JESS captures her though. We sorta come to terms with SUPERIOR IRON MAN 4; with Tony kinda dominating DD, but Matt still coming ahead morally. We end with UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL 1. I dig it a lot so far. We finish off with STAR WARS 1!! ZOMG!!11

This week we look at Thor Vol. 2 #15 – As Thor’s hammer gets fondled by hundreds of people in a dark alley (which isn’t nearly as much fun as it sounds!) – The Enchanters get ready to strike! Plus: I get to meet Stan Lee!
We’re a bit later than we originally intended, but proud to present the first part of our C2E2 2015 panel recaps. But these aren’t your normal panel rundowns; these are chock full of audio from the panels, including quotes direct from Dan Slott, Brian Azzarello, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, Charles Soule, and a bunch of other creators!
We start by going through the Secret Wars: Last Days panel from Marvel, where the panel talks about the Last Days miniseries leading to Secret Wars for characters like Ms. Marvel, Black Widow, Silver Surfer, Punisher, Ant-Man and the Inhumans. While there’s not a lot in the way of revelations in this panel, there are one or two really interesting new tidbits… as well as the name a of supervillain that, by the end of the episode, will haunt your nightmares.
We then recap the New DC Universe panel, where the post-Convergence storylines of books including Harley Quinn, Starfire, Bizarro and Catwoman, as well as some details about the upcoming We Are Robin, are laid out. This was the panel where Dark Knight 3: The Master Race was made, and we have that audio (and our opinions) as well.
We plan to tape and release our recap episode about the Batman panel (where Scott Snyder talks openly about the Bat-Bunny) tomorrow or Friday, so stay tuned!
We decided we just couldn’t get enough of the podcasting action so Jon and Charlie are back and talking Movies, TV, Video Games, and yes, even comics. The boys are flying solo tonight so take a listen and stay up to date on all the buzz around Hollywood, well geek Hollywood that is.

After a long absence, the podcast wife Erica Schultz returns! Jimmy is super tired and says some really dumb things in this episode like calling it Episode 603 when it is clearly 604. Plus, pronouncing Jared Leto’s last name wrong even though he realized it later. What a maroon! They chat about the aforementioned Leto’s new promo picture as The Joker, how RDJ’s publicist wisely pulled him out of annoying interview, quick bits on some of the Convergence spin-offs from DC and Fun Home musical gets 12 nominations! News includes: DC Superhero Girls to launch, Jill Thompson working on Wonder Woman graphic novel, Frank Miller returns to Batman, Stan Lee partners with Peter David and Colleen Doran for his graphic memoir, an all female Transformers is coming, Sony is planning a new animated Spider-Man film, Dragon Ball returns to TV after 20 years and more! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
This week Dave, Ben and John sit down and talk Daredevil. The Marvel Netflix show that has raised the bar for all other superhero shows. The show is so good Ben exclaims, “It makes it hard to watch other superhero shows.” Which is possibly the best compliment they could pay to the show. So sit back and relax, but be warned there are spoilers ahead, and Enjoy our review of Daredevil!
