Deconstructing Comics #494: Batman vs. Superman

Batman vs. Superman

Kumar talks with both Emmet O’Cuana and John Roberson about Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. How does Zack Snyder see these characters, and how is his vision at odds with the established ideas about these characters? How can we think about the events in this movie in a way that makes sense?

Music:

“Superman’s Song” – Crash Test Dummies

“I Whipped Batman’s Ass” – Wesley Willis

“(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman” – The Kinks

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 36: Haters Gonna Hate

Batman #44 (2015) - Page 3

Jim and Eric get together this week to talk comics, Star Wars…who am I kidding?!?  They get together to bitch and moan about the shit storm surrounding Eric’s less than flattering review of Batman #44.  It really had Eric down the whole week and Jim does nothing to help his buddy feel better.  They also breakdown most of this week’s books (including Batman #44) and have a very extended version of The Other Side talking Star Wars with Ryan.  Of course, there is also DC Comics News, Listener Mail and Reggie’s Recklessness.  It’s another long one, but we hope you enjoy it.

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 33: “Late Night Sleepover Fun”

JUSTL_Cv41_marquee_54ff988b458205.89598968

 

ep 33: “Late Night Sleepover Fun” With not a lot of news, but plenty of Listener Mail and Comic Books, Jim and Eric get down to business and talk and talk and talk…  While they couldn’t remember the name of seminal band, Sugar Ray, they did remember Welcome Back Kotter, Guns and Roses and Third Eye Blind among other nonsense.  They are also joined by Reggie for his Recklessness and Ryan Clark’s Other Side segment featuring Welcome Back #1.  All that was missing is a stuffed crust pizza and a Puppet Master movie to make this a throwback sleepover extravaganza!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 31

Episode 31: With fewer books to talk about, Jim and Eric keep it under three hours.  Eric shows his excitement that Charles Band follows him on Twitter and Jim gets upset at a listener mail making fun of his voice.  They also talk about all the DC Comics that came out this week, discuss the news, read listener mail and bitch and moan.  Reggie’s Recklessness features his opinions on the Killing Joke and Ryan reviews This Damned Band #1.  Dan got food poisoning so there is no Geek News this week, but Jim threatens to do it himself…as Dan.

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 23: Batman, The Truth and the DC YOU

Ep 23:

While Jim and Eric tried to tighten things up last week, they are back to their old ways.  This podcast took three tries and two days to record and is a long one indeed!  The longer format gives them a chance to talk about the new Robo Batman, The Truth and every other book this week.  We also learn that Jim’s laptop may or may not have porn on it and that Eric’s 7-eleven is closing soon.  Thankfully, Dan’s Geek News and Ryan’s Other side segment break up the nonsense.
