Josh-less again this episode, we welcome Comic Book Club contributor, Lucas Ewing back to the show to talk comics, cons, and Carter. As usual, we kick things off with Top o’ the Pile, including Preacher, Black Canary/Zatana: Bloodspell and The Wicked + the Divine.
Tangents take us into talk of The Walking Dead spinoff, Gotham, Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye and The Fadeout by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Then we get down to business with Marvel’s Agent Carter and a look ahead to the upcoming convention season.
Whether you’re a long time reader or a newbie like our friend Lucas, you won’t want to miss this star-spangled episode.
With Josh out of town, the dynamic duo of Ben and Dan tackle a subject that only they can – parenthood. It’s a parents guide to geekdom, with talk of Superman the Movie, Batman ’66, comics, cartoons and healthy tangents on comics as a medium, superheroes as a genre and the failures of modern DC properties on screen.
There’s redemption for Spider-Gwen as Ben and Dan unanimously sing the praises of Edge of Spider-Verse #2 in Top ‘o the Pileand then team up with the decidedly un-kid-friendly selection of Fury MAX for our Can ‘o Beans. Whether you have kids or not, there’s something for everyone in this dad-tastic new episode.
