Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 42: Asteroids, Nightmares and Comic Books

While some may say that Jim and Eric have been a little depressed when it comes to the books lately, they say “Nein” or maybe “Ten”, I’m not sure.  They let loose for a goofy comic book podcast that is all about impressions, jokes and yes, comic book reviews and comic book news.  Eric is still a witch priest and Jim wants him to marry an asteroid and a nightmare.  Enjoy!

Episode 38: “He’s Dead Jim” / Weird Science DC Comics Podcast

Dick-Grayson-Nightwing-Batman-vs.-Superman-movie-570x294

Jim and Eric continue the fun this week by discussing all the DC Comics and DC Comic News that two grown men can take.  Along the way, we all learn that their local comic book shop still sucks, Jim doesn’t really pay attention to the news and Eric has a lot of friends who all have ridiculous nicknames.  Jim also continues his nyquil addiction…but it’s all for the good of the podcast.  When they get to the books, they don’t agree as usual, but Jim does convince Eric that We are Robin wasn’t as bad as he first thought.  Jim:1 Eric: 0  Enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode #37: Double Secret Probation

what-is-actually-wrong-with-the-new-52-54e2cd49-45a3-447b-a830-d81c1ed30a27-jpeg-99161

It’s been a tough couple of weeks in Weird Science Land…After the fallout from Eric’s Batman #44 review started to settle, Twitter decided to flag the site as “malicious”!  Delicious maybe, but malicious?  While Eric tries to calm the ship, Jim has conspiracy theories and is just generally pissed off.  After Jim loses his voice and takes too much cold medicine, they hunker down to talk some comics and actually end up in a pretty good mood.  Who knows what the future holds, but one things for sure, “Bricks no hit back”.

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!
