Ep. 075 “Comic Book Guys”

ComicBookGuy

Ben and Josh are back with an old-school Marvel team-up. No movies, no TV, no fluff, just wall-to-wall comics talk in this milestone 75th episode!

In Top O’ the Pile, we get a field report from the front lines of Secret Wars and Spider-verse. Ben makes a big reveal that crosses something off his geek bucket-list. We dive in deep on #MarvelOctober and give out thoughts on every title in the post-Secret-Wars landscape. Which titles are just wacky enough to work? Why do porn stars have no place in comics, but pro wrestlers deserve a chance? What’s our take on the influx of women and minorities as both creators and characters?

It’s a Marvel-centric episode, but D.C. and the indies get some love in a Can O’ Beans that includes The Wake, Kick Ass 3 and a boat-load of Batman. Suit up and strap in for our diamond-studded 75th show!
