Comic Issues #129 – Ready? Fight!

Maybe they haven’t quite recovered from Comic-Con yet, but the podcast crew is really grumpy today. Anthony’s glaring at everybody, Andrew’s bringing up forbidden topics, and Elizabeth’s just plain starting trouble. It’s a battle of wills, a clash of Titans! Or maybe that’s just the Batman vs. Superman movie.

Join our rage-filled heroes and heroine as they argue, rant, and still manage to laugh while speculating about the upcoming DC movies and what we could expect from a Flash or Wonder Woman film. Along the way they also discuss Comic-Con food, proper footwear, and how to escape a recording studio before someone flips a table.
