It’s our Best of 2016! And just like last year, Jimmy sits down with The Beat’s Heidi MacDonald and good pal Jon Hoche to go over their 2016 favorites in comic books, TV and film. They didn’t read or watch everything released that year, so it’s just the Best of what they did read/watch. Fun discussions on great comics, their creators, TV shows, films, actors and more. What were your favorites last year? Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!
After some Pokemon GO talk, the boys discuss Frank Cho’s Wonder Woman Exit. They then do an in-depth discussion on the events of Civil War II #3! Butch then serves up a game of “Name the Creator” to test everyone’s comics history knowledge. Then we get some Voltron talk and wrap up the show discussing what mundane activities we want to see superheroes doing.
