ep 34: Jim and Eric cave in to listener demand that they get rid of the “Flash Reviews” segment of the podcast and talk at length about every single DC Comics issue that hit the shelves this week. That is fifteen books and boy, it took a long time to record this one. I don’t know if they can keep up this pace and not kill themselves or find themselves abandoned by their family and friends. They also talk some news including DC Comics going against the “batgirlization” of their books. So, here is the longest podcast they will ever do…until the next one. Enjoy!
DC Comic Books Reviewed: Superman #43, Grayson #11, Justice League of America #3, Teen Titans #11, Aquaman #43, The Flash #43, Gotham by Midnight #8, Batgirl #43, We are Robin #3, Deathstroke #9, Injustice: Year Four #17, DC Comics: Bombshells #5, Batman: Arkham Knight #28, He-Man and the Eternity War #9, Cyborg #2, Harley Quinn #19, Sinestro #14, Justice League 3001 #3 and Prez #3

Jimmy decides to take a break from all of the massive SDCC coverage to hit you up with some reviews and news from the past few weeks! It’s a quickie solo episode as it’s very last minute. We’ve been playing nothing but SDCC related podcasts and miss reviewing comics and sharing the news so we thought we’d jump back into the fray with a last regular format show. We know you missed hearing Jimmy’s beautiful voice. Well, okay…he missed recording. News includes:
- Adam McKay & Funny or Die are teaming with Archie Comics for an Archie musical.
- Judge Dredd: America collected edition is finally available in actual America.
- MoCCA announces new venue/dates.
- New production company Modern Prometheus will adapt Paul Pope’s The One Trick Rip-Off to film.
- Disney is releasing a giant Miyazaki blu-ray collection in November.
- Matt Ryan’s Constantine will make an appearance in an upcoming Season 4 episode of Arrow.
- Chris Pine will be Steve Trevor in the upcoming Wonder Woman film.
- Tom Hardy will produce and possibly star in an adaptation of the Vertigo comic series 100 Bullets.
- The sides have been chosen for the upcoming Captain America: Civil War.
- And much more!

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.

The spiritual sequel to our Religion in Comics episode is finally here! Brent and Ian are joined by Brandon Christopher (for technically the third episode in a row if you count 159 Part A and B as two separate episodes) and Julian Lytle to discuss ethnicity and race in comics. How have comics evolved in their portrayal of people of color over the years? What still needs to be done to improve things further? How about creators of color getting their foot in the door of a predominantly white industry? Who are some of our favorite ethnically diverse creators? Is it a good idea to take originally white characters and reintroduce them as black, Asian, or otherwise, or is legacy the way to go? We go into all of this and more here. Listen in, and enjoy. This one is an instant favorite of the crew.
