Jimmy has to fly solo this week since everyone is still away for Christmas! But he got the December co-host Jon Hoche and frequent co-host Emmy Potter to send in some audio reviews. No news as it was one of those slow news weeks due to the holidays. It was also a sad week in our world with the loss of pop icon Carrie Fisher. Many friends/listeners sent in their tributes/thoughts on it all. Thanks to Carrie, Kerri, Rachel, Emily, Emmy, Adam/Comfort, Rebecca, Qui, Shena, Erica, Katelan, Sina, Vera and Marta! I know many others wanted to as well and I thank you. Carrie Fisher was a legend and we all miss her. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 44: When I Say Yummy, You Say Pie

Justice League - Darkseid War - Superman #1 (2015) - Page 10


Jim and Eric get together for another podcast, but this week’s bunch of books has got them down. While Eric wants DC Comics to get “Back to the Basics”, Jim just wants to rant and rave with or without pants on.  After Eric announces he’s a pretty girl, the boys talk about Superman’s love of pie, Steve Orlando’s “unique” dialogue and other stuff they found lacking…which means everything.  Eric may not be the voice for every comic book fan out there, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to be.  They also discuss this week’s DC Comic News, read Listener Mail and  are joined by Reggie, Professor DC and Ryan to make this another…podcast.  Enjoy!
