Reviews: Archie: Sharknado One-Shot, Doctor Who: Four Doctors #1, Invader Zim #1, King #1, Star Wars: Lando #1, Fear the Walking Dead TV series, Fantastic Four film

Jimmy decides to take a break from all of the massive SDCC coverage to hit you up with some reviews and news from the past few weeks! It’s a quickie solo episode as it’s very last minute. We’ve been playing nothing but SDCC related podcasts and miss reviewing comics and sharing the news so we thought we’d jump back into the fray with a last regular format show. We know you missed hearing Jimmy’s beautiful voice. Well, okay…he missed recording. News includes:

  • Adam McKay & Funny or Die are teaming with Archie Comics for an Archie musical.
  • Judge Dredd: America collected edition is finally available in actual America.
  • MoCCA announces new venue/dates.
  • New production company Modern Prometheus will adapt Paul Pope’s The One Trick Rip-Off to film.
  • Disney is releasing a giant Miyazaki blu-ray collection in November.
  • Matt Ryan’s Constantine will make an appearance in an upcoming Season 4 episode of Arrow.
  • Chris Pine will be Steve Trevor in the upcoming Wonder Woman film.
  • Tom Hardy will produce and possibly star in an adaptation of the Vertigo comic series 100 Bullets.
  • The sides have been chosen for the upcoming Captain America: Civil War.
  • And much more!
