Mike is back with a vengeance. And it is the month of horror so of course that means a discussion of Blade Runner and Other Sci Fi awesomeness. Horror is finally gotten to and a rousing debate about how much Nightmare on Elm Street 2 either sucks or is awesome ensues. And this week TJ does find the ability to multitask and the comic section lives. Avengers, OMAC, Action Comics, and Pigs are all discussed. Sorry for the short intro, but i feel it does the job. Enjoy!

The end of the month of simians is upon us, and yes it did start 7 weeks ago, we never claim to be good at math or understand a calendar. Battle is amazing, Rise also amazing, Tim Burton’s is a piece of shit but 6 out of 7 is not bad. The month of horror is discussed and we urge you to get involved in it. The october of horror starts on September 24th (there is that whole calendar thing again). The rules are discussed and there is a thread on our forums about it. Lastly we get into the DCnU or the NDCU or whatever they decided to call it, whatever it is i just call it AWESOME.
