Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 31

batman_pop_art_6_by_thegreatdevin-d6l8o1k

Episode 31: With fewer books to talk about, Jim and Eric keep it under three hours.  Eric shows his excitement that Charles Band follows him on Twitter and Jim gets upset at a listener mail making fun of his voice.  They also talk about all the DC Comics that came out this week, discuss the news, read listener mail and bitch and moan.  Reggie’s Recklessness features his opinions on the Killing Joke and Ryan reviews This Damned Band #1.  Dan got food poisoning so there is no Geek News this week, but Jim threatens to do it himself…as Dan.

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 23: Batman, The Truth and the DC YOU

Ep 23:

While Jim and Eric tried to tighten things up last week, they are back to their old ways.  This podcast took three tries and two days to record and is a long one indeed!  The longer format gives them a chance to talk about the new Robo Batman, The Truth and every other book this week.  We also learn that Jim’s laptop may or may not have porn on it and that Eric’s 7-eleven is closing soon.  Thankfully, Dan’s Geek News and Ryan’s Other side segment break up the nonsense.

Ep 22: This week the boys try to tighten things up, but they still get involved in nonsense.  They also talk about all the books released this week including Justice League, Action Comics, Bizarro, Batman Beyond and more.  There is also Dan’s Geek News and Ryan Clark’s Other Side segment featuring Spiderman: Renew Your Vows #1. The DC You is upon us and Jim and Eric have very mixed feelings about it!

Wildstorm Addiction – Episode 39

Show Notes:
Welcome to another episode of Wildstorm Addiction! Our resident Wildstorm experts Joe David Soliz & Benjamin Murphy review Superman Annual #1, Stormwatch #0, Grifter #0, and Voodoo #0, as well as some other Wildstorm appearances in the new DCU 52. We decided not to review Ravagers #0 this month because it basically just covered the origin of Beast Boy and Terra and had no Wildstorm character appearances.

00:00:35 – Ben welcomes everyone to episode #39 and gives his spoiler alerts warning. Remember, all written reviews on the website are spoiler free and usually get posted within a day of print release.

00:01:46 – Ben gives plenty of Wildstorm related news as it pertains to the current books in the DCU approaching the last big con of 2012, NYCC.

We all know that Jim Lee is off Justice League, so we’re hoping and praying that a Wildcats title will be his next stop but we’ll see. It’s also rumored Jim Lee may be doing a new Superman title. Ivan Reis is taking over Justice League in December and the announcement had this to say about Jim Lee: “And for you Jim Lee fans out there, don’t worry. We’ve got some major news coming soon. While that’s all we can tease for now, New York Comic Con is only one month away …” Which of course, the con is a lot closer now since this statement was first released and other than a few variant covers, Jim Lee is noticeably absent from the December solicitations.

Speaking of December, Grifter #15 has him facing the Suicide Squad (he’s specifically fighting Deadshot on the cover) and mentions ties to Team 7, Stormwatch #15 apparently has the team turning Midnighter because of the Shadow Lords manipulations, Team 7 #3 has Deathstroke turning against the team thanks to the first New 52 appearance of the villain Eclipso, and Ravagers #7 has the return of Rose Wilson and Warblade. Also, Superboy and the Ravagers guest star in Legion Lost #15 and Demon Knights #15 mentions a connection to Stormwatch.
Stormwatch Vol. 2 HC has been pushed back to May 2013 and the Voodoo Vol. 1: What Lies Beneath trade came out Sept. 26th.
