Happy Canada Day! And if you aren't Canadian, happy new comic book day!
This week Dave and I discuss the mountain of comic news and gossip that came out in the last week or so, including a director for Black Panther, a new Dr Strange book from Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo, and a DC casting switcharoo for professional dreamboat, Chris Pine.
We also talk about the first issue of Brian K Vaughan and Steve Skroce's new comic, We Stand on Guard, and discuss our favourite Canadian comic book characters and creators. We barely scratch the surface, really, but it's still a fun talk! Apologies to the zillions of Canadian comic creators who don't get mentioned. We mention, like, three.

First, if you like the song we use as our theme, Wordburglar's "Drawings with Words", check out the video! Look for Dave around the 1:40 mark!
I talk more than anyone needs to about The Covenant this week, since I watched it right before recording this episode. Here is the trailer:
And here is the whole damn movie, if you feel like watching the most ridiculous dialogue ever written tumble from Sebastian Stan's perfect mouth:
And here is a Sebastian Stan gif from the movie that I like:
If you want to read the full "article" about Anthony Mackie describing the perfect woman for Chris Evans, it's here. And it's weird.
I mention that one of my favourite sports is hate-reading Jeremy Renner's Twitter account. Here are some choice recent douchy tweets.
First he makes light of Chris Evans' inability to fulfil his dreams of fatherhood:
And he makes a cool frat boy joke for Chris Evans' birthday:
He also posts a lot of pics of himself wearing sunglasses, looking like an ass:
In the Canada section of this episode, we reference a few things that I had written about previously on the blog. Here are some links:
Good news! Dave was not imagining the comic where Spider-Man goes to the Calgary Stampede!
And here is the official video for Plumtree's song, Scott Pilgrim, which inspired the comic.
I decided not to make a Canadian references bingo card for We Stand on Guard because it's too mean. It would be downright un-Canadian of me, really.
