It’s a special episode of my Wayne’s Comics Podcast, so I thought for #275 we’d go where this show has never gone before – to talk with the leader of a successful comics convention! I talk with Ben Penrod from Awesome Con about that high-octane event, including how it came to be, what goes on there, and what we might expect from them in the future. He even discusses how it got that name, and why he thinks it’s perfect for the years ahead! Comics conventions are a big part of the comics experience these days, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy what he has to say! For more about Awesome Con, including details about this year’s event, go to their website here, and for more about the other conventions Ben is part of, head to this link.
Reviews: Batman Rebirth #1, Bolts #1, Civil War II #1, Control #1, Green Arrow Rebirth #1, Green Lanterns Rebirth #1, Superman Rebirth
Emily Edwards returns to the rotating co-host chair! They chat about the rumors involving Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and Tom Hiddleston as James Bond. News includes: Superman will make an appearance in the first 2 episodes of Season 2 of Supergirl, Millarworld announced Reborn from Mark Millar and Greg Capullo, and Gillian Anderson will play “Media” in the upcoming TV adaptation of American Gods. Jimmy is leaving for Heroes Con in North Carolina next week and you shouldn’t definitely go if you are in Charlotte from June 17-19! One of the best comic conventions around. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!

Doc and Shepherd are rather disappointed in the slow news week, but they make due with reading something Rob Liefeld wrote and a couple other non-issues. Also, after another session of “What Is It”, they entertain fan questions.
Most surprising would be that this time around your faithful hosts review not one, not two, but THREE DC comics, including Convergence #1, Batman/Superman Annual #2 and Batman & Robin Annual #3. Good times. The master may not be pleased by this, but you guys certainly will….
To submit FANQUISITION topics for our weekly panel to address, submit via twitter with #fanquisition or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be entered to win seriously cool comics.
