This week it’s a cold day in Hel as we cover Thor v2 #32, the 100 Page Monster! Well, 1/4 of the issue anyway… With Malekith seemingly having the upper hand, it’s up to Thor, Beta Ray Bill, Sif, and the rest to defeat Malekith and his icy minions!! It’s the most fun you can have other than watching your fridge defrost! Nuff said!
We’re back! This week we’re covering Thor v2 #30! It’s the return (again??) of Malekith, his pixie friends, Beta Ray Bill (aka Bill-ric of Melnibone), some forced cross-over nonsense, and some great art by Andy Kubert! Nuff said!
This week we cover Thor V2 #29! Jurgens, Kubert & Co present Thor vs The Wrecking Crew, with the life of Hogun the Grim in the balance! Plus, Jagrfelm has a bit of elf trouble, as Malekith the Accused takes “raiding the ice box” to a whole new level 😉
Reviews: Dark Knight III: The Master Race #1, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1, Ringside #1
Emmy Potter returns to co-hosting duties! So of course, she and Jimmy have to chat Doctor Who and their love of Peter Capaldi.

On this podcast we’re joined by Doctor Fluxx from Feed it Comics and we talk about the possible X-Men vs Justice League movie that will likely never happen. Ever. Then we review Robin Rises: Omega #1, The Devilers #1 and The Last Fall #1. Enjoy a listen and whatnot.
125 episodes of Comic Timing! Holy crap! To celebrate, Brent and Ian say farewell to the old DC Universe with a review of Flashpoint #5 and say hello to the new one with Justice League #1! We are also joined by longtime listener Donovan Morgan Grant for the Justice League conversation. Plus, there is plenty of conversation and clarification on Brent’s Editorial on why he feels some comic shops might not be using the DC Relaunch to its fullest potential.
