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.
It’s a return to pre-reboot continuity as Ben and Josh hold down the fort with an old school episode. First up in Top o’ the Pile, we wrap up Spider-Verse and touch on new ongoings for Spider-Woman and Spider-Gwen. The comics world can’t get enough of these spider-ladies, but neither can muster up any interest from Nason.
Later we talk God Hates Astronauts, Spider-Man & the X-Men and ask how long to keep a title on the fence before dropping it. Ben gushes about Hickman’s Avengers. Josh makes a date with DC. We discuss Daredevil and other upcoming small screen debuts. Fortunes are made. Dreams are realized. Many a Can O’ Beans is eaten on another all-new episode of the Near Mint Comic Show
