In the first episode under the new name, not much has changed. A silly game is played, “Comic Book This or That.” A few listener emails are read and discussed. After reading Chris Claremont’s X-Men Forever, Nick leads a discussion about what other books would work with a similar relaunch.
Also, everyone should say goodbye to Mark. This was his last show as a regular.
In this very late episode, Nick and Jason try to record a show without Mark. Some of the new Batman books are discussed, including Batman #687, Batman and Robin #1, and Red Robin #1. The hardships of getting to the Pittsburgh Comics and Collectibles Show are shared. Jason shouts out to some of his podcast friends. Also, as a nice bonus, listener Syd Hart contributes a segment where he discusses the hallucinogenic properties of Blackest Night and his dislike of the movie version of Deadpool.
In this episode, the guys share a very long, very strange comment from their blog. The Radical Comics “Rename Batman Obviously” Contest is announced. A few comics are reviewed, including Nick’s timely review of Alias #15. Star Trek and X-men Origins: Wolverine are discussed. Also, Jason tries to get Mark and Nick to read War of Kings, but they belittle him.
