Host Anthony Desiato presents a special double-sized installment of My Comic Shop History: two episodes in one! First up is “In Defense of Batman v Superman,” in which Anthony sits down with Doug Doescher, Ralph Puma, and Damien Torres to discuss the film and try to find some redemption for it. The second half, “Other Side of the Table,” features cartoonist (X-Babies, Pix: One Weirdest Weekend) and podcaster (Stuff Said, Cruisin’ Together) Gregg Schigiel. In an informative one-on-one chat, Anthony and Gregg discuss the creator perspective on comic conventions and store signings and deliver a crash course on self-publishing a comic book project.
Jim and Eric are at it again with a 5+ hour podcast. They won’t mind if you don’t! During their weekly visit, they talk about all the DC Comics that came out this week including Batman and Robin #23 and Batman/Superman #30. Spoiler Alert: They like Batman/Superman #30 a whole lot! They also talk about this weeks DC Comics news, how sexy robot Lois is and Jim weirds Eric out with inappropriate fan fiction…all this and more on Episode 62 of the Weird Science DC Comics Podcast. Enjoy!
Eric was sick as a dog, but instead of taking the week off, Jim forced him to get out of bed and record the podcast…sort of. With the help of Reggie, they recorded an abridged version of the podcast with reviews of Batman and Robin Eternal #21, Justice League #48, Superman: The Coming of the Supermen #1, Superman/Wonder Woman #26 and Superman #49. While that doesn’t seem like a lot, it still was almost 4 hours long! Enjoy!
Jim and Eric keep it on point as they discuss DC Comics’ Rebirth announcement and every book that came out this week. They try to keep the nonsense to a minimum, but we all know that doesn’t usually work. Enjoy!
It was a down week for books and after getting yelled out all week about review scores, Jim was pretty depressed. That means one thing…The Mobile Leprechaun. Yes, nothing brings a smile to Jim and Eric’s face quicker than a little, “Who Else Seen Da Leprechaun Say Yeah!” It carries them through this long ass episode where they break down all the books, talk DC Comics news, get yelled at in the listener mail and try to have a good time. Enjoy!
It’s a long one and things do indeed get dark. There is talk of putting dogs down, a double murder suicide and plenty of zit popping and toilet plunging. Oh yea, there is also Comics as Jim and Eric review all of this week’s DC Comic releases including Batman and Robin Eternal, Grayson, Justice League of America and so much more. Plus, you get the Digital Spotlight featuring The Adventures of Supergirl, Eric’s TV segment with Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Lucifer talk as well as the News, DC Comics News, Reggie’s Recklessness, Ryan Clark’s Other Side, Professor DC and Listener Mail. Holy Crap that’s a lot of stuff! Enjoy…
Jim and Eric get together and talk a bunch of nonsense…only to find out they weren’t recording it. Yep, an hour and a half of the podcast just disappeared and while others may have given up, these two idiots started over and ended up with over 5 hours of…well, something. They talk all of the DC Comics that came out this week (including Poison Ivy with guest, Reggie), discuss the news and more. If they aren’t the #hardestworkingguysinpodcasting, they are the stupidest. Enjoy!
Jim, Eric and Reggie were going to talk about the solicits for this week’s podcast and then news starting dropping about “Rebirth”. So, Jim finally got his way and the guys do an Emergency Podcast. Things go off the rails a bit, but who wouldn’t expect that, right? They do talk about the April Solicits and what they think this Rebirth thing is all about. Possibly.
Jim and Eric get together to talk DC Comics, DC Comics News and random nonsense. They try to figure out what periscope is, discuss various masturbation methods and eventually wade through all of comic books released this week and are joined by Professor DC, Reggie and Ryan. Enjoy!
Eric and Jim are back again and this week they’ve brought a boatload of nonsense. Jim’s throat is killing him and Eric wants to tickle butt holes, but besides that, everything is fine. The guys talk about all the DC Comics books released this week, yell at each other and stay up way too late recording. Enjoy!
The Weird Science Get Fresh Crew get together to discuss their picks for DC Comics Best of 2015. *Warning* The Quality is not the greatest as all our efforts failed and we were forced to use the raw Skype call. Hopefully you can get past that and enjoy the show.
Jim and Eric celebrate the New Year (and one year of podcasting) with their usual comics talk, stories and utter nonsense. Eric went to a New Year’s Eve party, but Jim takes a walk down memory lane as he recounts some past New Years of his own. It’s all about Y2K and stolen valor. He still doesn’t understand how it happened, but Eric rips into him all the same. The two finally get into this week’s DC Comic Books, but make sure they offend everyone with their Indian rain dances and nonsense. It’s another long one for the #hardestworkingguysinpodcasting…enjoy!
ep 43: Jim and Eric get together on Halloween Night, but kind of ignore that fact to talk about DC Comics as usual. They go over all the DC Comics News, Comic books and even get to talk about Vic Sage’s porn addiction, Mythbrawl and why Batman is the most selfish god of them all. While they may not be huge fans of every book they talk about, they keep it real like the Man of Steel. I’m not sure what that means, but I like the sound of it!
