High atop the Town & Country Hotel Anthony, Elizabeth, Chris, and extra special guest Andre Meadows of Black Nerd Comedy gathered together to form the podcast that fans both wanted AND needed. Sinking their collective claws deep into DC’s recent boast of a movie release schedule, these geeks get into everything from Batfleck, to Justice League, and into the current DC TV line up. Not to be passed over though everyone also talks about Marvel’s triumphs and what they’re looking for in the next Star Wars movie.

Comic Issues #191 – Out with the old, in with the new

Marvel’s shaking everything up this month, with a brand new Captain America, a brand new Lady Thor, and a brand new…wait, no, we’re not getting a new Wolverine, we’re just losing the old one. But you never know..
