We said we’d talk about annuals so we’re talking about annuals.

But we also talk about other important things, like this baffling Henry Cavill Instagram post:

So beautiful but so weird.

Enjoy, and thanks for listening!

Podcast - Episode 156: Bruce and Dick

We saw Batman’s penis!!!!

This past week the first issue of Batman: Damned came out and DAAAAAAAMN. There is some full frontal Batman. It is not disappointing.

Some other stuff happens in this comic too. He kills the Joker maybe? Who cares because BAT DONG!

I mean, you can see veins. Well done, Lee Bermejo. You did it.

See you next week when we talk about something WAY less interesting.

Podcast - Episode 155: Superman and Batman movies

Since there were a couple of news items this past week relating to Superman and Batman movies, we decided to look back at all previous Superman and Batman movies.

I have to make a correction, too. Probably several, but the one I can remember is that I said that the Starfire character on Titans is a prostitute but I don’t think she actually is. I had just heard that, but I can’t find verification anywhere. I can’t find anything that says otherwise, either, but let’s assume that she is not actually a prostitute. Not that there is anything wrong with being a sex worker of any kind, but comic book-based entertainment has a long history of not depicting sex workers in the most…sensitive and respectful light. Anyway, the show still looks very bad.

Here is Michael Kupperman’s Dick Crazy comic, for your enjoyment:

See you next week!

We wrapped up the summer book club this week with The Infinity Gauntlet.

I still have a headache from it.

Here is that tweet I promised I would find the author of and credit. It was Rusty Shackles, in reply to Jeff Parker:

Alright, thanks for reading along, or at least listening along. Send us ideas for books we should discuss, or topic ideas!

The penultimate week of our summer book club! We are talking about Faith Erin Hicks' amazing series, The Nameless City. Well, technically just the first book, but the third and final book is out on Sept 25 and I can't wait!!!!

Ok, you guys wanna see the drawing J.Bone did of my characters, Scott and Kip, from my upcoming hockey romance book Game Changer? Of course you do!

Thanks again to Matt for commissioning that sketch for my birthday! Best present ever!

And, if you are interested, here is an interview I did with Faith Erin Hicks way back in 2008 for the release of The War at Ellsmere!

Join us next week when we wrap up the summer book club with Infinity Gauntlet!

Podcast - Episode 152: The Untold Legend of the Batman

Untold Legend Banner.jpg

Dave and I are all alone this week but we still have plenty of fun talking about 1982's The Untold Legend of the Batman. The book is way more ridiculous than I remember it being.

I am still laughing thinking about Joe Chill getting away from Batman somehow when Batman confronts him in his office. Man, does Batman ever screw that up.

Next week we are reading/discussing Faith Erin Hicks' The Nameless City. See you then!
