Big things come in short packages. It may be a #shortshow, but there’s comics action around every turn. Sparks fly as all three wheels of the train Near Mint try desperately to stay on the rails… which they succeed at until about the 58 minute mark.
In this episode, we kick off convention season with a strictly-second-hand report from C2E2. Snyder and Capullo drop the mic on their Batman run but DC isn’t dropping any clues about Rebirth. Excitement for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is building to a gentle simmer. Not to be outdone in the ‘heroes-senselessly-feuding-with-one-another’ department, Marvel is all in on Civil War on screen and in print. We even have time to talk about a movie without superheroes – can you believe they still make those?!
The #shortshow hoagie is stuffed between a Top o’ the Pile and a Can o’ Beans, piled high with extra helpings of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, Darwyn Cooke and Ramón Pérez, Batman Europa, Daredevil on Netflix – and so much more!
