How they gonna do that to Mr. Freeze, huh?
Gotham's missing a Batman in the new DC video game, but that's not the only thing this game is lacking. A very mid- experience; it has some high points in interesting crafting & crime-stopping, but some really low points in villain development and boss fights. Should you spend a lot on it? Probably not. But it might be worth a pick up on a steep Black Friday sale.
You can be awesome, but maybe not at literally everything?
TO PREFACE we love Darth Vader and Doctor Aphra and Wolverine and Batman and Superman and all these folks as much as the next loud-mouthed podcast team. HOWEVER, when a character is OP, or they constantly overcome challenges just by *being themselves* - their stories start to become predictable, and worse, boring. Let characters be good at stuff, but maybe not the BEST at everything they touch, okay?
Best Fwend Powers, activate!
Weekly Pull Highlights: March 16, 2022
Not every superhero story needs to be super deep, or super depressing, or super dramatic. Sometimes, it's just super people fighting bad guys and shaking hands. And honestly, we're totally into it.
Finally putting the "detective" back in Detective Comics...
There have been many movies about the Bat, but the new 3-hour spectacle from Matt Reeves is unafraid to take risks and do things the previous films haven't done, while staying very true to the comic source material. To say we were impressed is an understatement! However, when we say don't buy the big drink from concessions, we mean it...
How come we never see the awkward Batman teen years?
Weekly Pull Highlights: January 19, 2021
What an excellent chunk of new books this week! Romance with a science fiction twist, fantasy in a natural environment, and the awkward in-between years of Batman.
Because there's nothing wrong with a little more Bruce sometimes.
Did you know that Saturday was Batman Day? It timed out beautifully for us to be able to highlight a brand new compilation all about Batman from a global perspective. We share our favorite stories from the book, but it's honestly an excellent read cover to cover. Here's to you, Brucey-boy!
This is how I picture literally every Bard ever.
Weekly Pull Highlights: April 28, 2021
What happens when you drop a traditional tabletop RPG crew, complete with bard and fighter and wizard (oh my!), into a traditional Aztec setting? We don't know yet either, but we're really excited to find out! That and more on this weeks episode (and our theory on Robin's new name... fingers crossed!) - check it out now!
And now we get to be depressed about no sequels...
After years of talking smack as non-believers, we sat down and committed the time to watch the newly released Zack Snyder cut of Justice League. And honestly guys... we were wrong. This movie is awesome!
A relatively non-spoilery episode, we break down WHY it's better, and why having a 4 hour runtime is actually it's biggest strength.
It's the return of our favorite - goofy Lex Luthor!
It's our final week of Future State titles! Let's wrap things up with a handful of titles that were even more removed from the timeline - but that may have made them even better. We'll be covering Aquaman, Batman/Superman, Legion of Superheroes, Suicide Squad, and Superman vs Imperious Lex. Yeehaw, we're almost through it, y'all!
We need a timeline poster, stat.
Oh snap, it's more Future State #1s! This week, we talk about Catwoman, Superman: Worlds of War, Immortal Wonder Woman, Nightwing and Shazam - and when we say talk, we mean try and figure out when in the heck these books all take place in the timeline! I think we need a roadmap, DC, sheesh. Let's get rolling!
