Continuing our march towards episode 100, Ben and Dan are back with comic talk for the ages. Dan’s Top o’ the Pile pick, March: Book One, leads us into a discussionabout historical and non-fiction comics. We touch on everything from Maus, to Moving Pictures, The Nam to The Fifth Beatle and more.
There’s more comic talk to follow as Ben dives deeper into DC’s Rebirth with rapid-fire reviews of Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman and Detective Comics. Finally, we wrap things up with Can o’ Beans, with talk of the soon-to-be-scarce Mike Mignola and a tease of a Mignola-centric episode to come in the near future.
Ben, Josh and Dan are all back and there’s plenty to talk about. Movies have been seen. Comics have been read. Josh has big NEWS?? The universe will never be the same.
First up in Top o’ the Pile, Josh catches us up on Amazing Spider-Man, Ben has some high-brow praise for The Mighty Thor and Dan tries out the new Black Widow by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee.
In movie news, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice gets a tepid review from Josh, while Captain America: Civil War, gets (spoilers) 3 thumbs up!
And speaking of all-new, all-different – DC is shaking things up once again with Rebirth. Ben and Dan have read the debut issue of the massive, universe-realigning event. We give our thoughts on the new status quo and the new crop of books coming our way.
It’s a whole heap o’ comic talk to get you through ‘till next Wednesday. Happy listening!
