Cape Town Community is excited to bring our new podcast to the Comics Podcast Network! We’re extremely grateful for all of the people around the country (and world) who have chosen to test our new show out! We’re a comic book news and review podcast that runs about 60 to 90 minutes each episode — Enjoy!
Okay, so this is the thirteenth episode. No big whoop. But we’re reviewing the books that came out on April 13th. Double-unlucky whammy, right? To our chagrin, the episode also clocks in at an hour and thirteen minutes. All we’re missing is Felicia Hardy. Nonetheless, we persevere and present a brand spanking new episode in which we discuss all things Nick Spencer, Brian Michael Bendis and Superman!

00:28:50 Ultimate Spider-Man #157: Jerry is enjoying the “Death of Spider-Man” less than Don.

00:54:04 Butcher Baker the Righteous Maker #2: Don does not find this book as provocative as it is intended. However, the art by Mike Huddleston is stunning.
