Binary System Podcast #35 – WTNV #87 “The Trial of Hiram McDaniels”

The long awaited trial of Hiram McDaniels has finally arrived. Aaaand now it’s done. That was fast.

We didn’t get to see much of the trial (Mayor Cardinal took the charge to “Tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” a little too seriously, and they had to clear the courtroom), but the results were exactly what we WEREN’T expecting. Justice in Night Vale isn’t for wimps. Or anybody, really.

And weirdly, on the eve of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War we somehow ended up giving a little love to DC and the handful of shows and animations that they’ve done well. This was after we made snarky comments about Batman v Superman and Convergence, but the love got in there eventually.

WonderCon 2016 – DC Rebirth Event Highlights

WonderCon 2016 – DC Rebirth Event Highlights

This weekend DC Comics announced all the details of the upcoming Rebirth event at a highly-anticipated panel at WonderCon 2016.

The atmosphere in the packed-to-capacity room was surprisingly optimistic, despite fans having some serious problems with New 52 and Convergence. The DC higher ups took the right tone: when talking about DC’s recent history Dan Didio even said “sometimes you lose your way a little.” He said “something was missing” from New 52. The direction of Rebirth (on paper anyway, I’m a skeptical person) seems to be one of legacy characters, a re-commitment to fans, twice-monthly titles, and all books dropping to 2.99.

See below for more highlights, photos, artist lineups, and the full video of the panel.

Comic Issues #242 – Weird comic books and geek TV (perfect weekend)

The plan for this week was to talk about the Harvey Awards, Crane Con 2015, and the books we read this week. And we mostly did that! But we also kept getting derailed by all the geek TV we’re trying to watch, like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Doctor Who, Arrow, Flash, The Dollhouse, The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and Gotham.

But we eventually get back to Mythic #4, Fury #1, Years of Future Past #5, Grayson #12, and the excellently disturbing Gotham by Midnight #9, with art by the amazing Juan Ferreyra.
