Alternate Reality – Episode 398

Alternate Reality – Episode #398

Despite torrential flooding, the Alternate Reality crew is still here and all without building an Ark.  We managed to survive the flood waters this time but with a new hurricane coming in on the eastern seaboard, we’re liable to be up to our necks in it.

In the meantime, we’re already up to our necks in comics.  We’ve got an assortment for you this week as Jon and Charlie talk about everything from James Bond in WWII, to the Star Wars Universe and all points in-between.

And if that wasn’t enough for you, the boys take some extra time to dive outside the comics book flood waters into other seas of geekery.  We take a quick look at Spider-Man which just hit the PS4 and Iron Fist season 2 which just hit Netflix.

Uh oh, I should have said that.  Whenever we say we’re gonna do anything quick, or just touch on a subject for a few mins, the episode turns out to be twice as long.  Well, perhaps that’s for the best as the boys must take an extended brake after this so Jon can go to the Cleveland Clinic and be seen by the world’s best doctors.  So this double length episode may have to last as much as three weeks before Alternate Reality will be back.

Sorry, but that’s just the way things go sometimes.

Enjoy!!!

Alternate Reality – Episode 389

Alternate Reality – Episode #389

Lots of comics to talk about this week.  We look at a spooky ghost-like story in Immortal Hulk #1.  Charlie tells us about Deathstroke being out for Batman’s blood.  We finally get to the end of our weekly Justice League setup for the new series, but was it worth it?

Also, Charlie and Jon look at Papergirls from Brian K. Vaughan as Charlie tried to catch Jon up.  Jon takes a tour on the wild side with Medieval Spawn and Witchblade.  And we finish up with the new DC series The Unexpected.  (Wow, that was unanticipated)

Alternate Reality; bringing you the best every week in comic book podcasting!!!

Enjoy!!!
