Podcast - Episode 155: Superman and Batman movies

superman iii.jpg

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!

Eeeeee!!!! Look at them!!!! So in love.

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

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!

Podcast - Episode 151: Avengers West Coast: VisionQuest

We are joined this week by our friend Sean Jordan, aka Wordburglar, and also Alex Kennedy, who we unfortunately did not have a microphone for. We had a good time talking about issue #4 of The Last Paper Route, the comic that is made by Sean, Alex and Dave. We also talked about DCAF, which happened this past weekend, Sean's new album, Rhyme Your Business, Ghost Rider (the 2007 movie), and, of course, our book club selection, VisionQuest, by the lovable John Byrne.

Here is the photographic evidence that Dave did indeed pay Sean $5 to settle their bet that Dave would never watch Ghost Rider.

Well, that's over.

On to VisionQuest!

Here is that panel of Captain America excitedly running out the door when he heard the ADVENTURE ALARM!

And here's Scarlet Witch with a hairpin in her mouth, which I am obsessed with:

It's our 150th episode and...due to scheduling issues, we have postponed all of our 150th episode stuff until next week. BUT we read a really good book for our bookclub this week!

If you are in the area, come on down to DCAF this Sunday! It's a great little festival and totally free!
