SDCC 2015 – So many panels, so little time

Comic Issues #211 – Open Season on DC

This week Anthony and Ashley are moving to an awesome new place, so Elizabeth takes a turn at hosting, with guest star Leland from Movie Issues! Join us as we pick Leland’s brain on all things DC, and he drops knowledge all over the place.

Then we discuss Aquaman’s new look (Leland’s not a fan, Elizabeth just thinks Jason Momoa is pretty.) Then we break down Joker’s “immortality,” Superman’s flaws, inconsistencies in Harley Quinn, and Wonder Woman having a beer in a bar.

[SDCC 2014] Marvel Panel – Avengers: Age of Ultron

The Marvel panel (specifically the Avengers: Age of Ultron portion) at San Diego Comic-Con was one of the most eagerly awaited, hard-to-get-into, and most talked about event of the convention.
