The new DC Universe streaming service started today. Did we subscribe? If we did, did it work? The full Batman Day 2018 rundown, and comparisons to past events. Also, looking to 2019 and Batman 80th Anniversary. Also, Patrick cannot count… or add. Batman Damned #1 comes out next week and it’s already sold out. Marvel stealth-cancelled the brand new Vision mini-series before we could even turn in our orders for #1. Something smells bad in comics retail… And maybe we do know what we’re doing after all.
From the sound of glass shattering you’d think “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was on his way to the ring, but NO! It’s a break-in at Challengers. And, unrelated, identity theft! It’s a great week for criminals at Challengers’ expense! And we do mean ‘expense.’ Hear how we deal with these types of highly disappointing, yet not wholly unexpected, occurrences. Plus, the aftermath of the Ryan Browne GHA hardcover release party.
Recorded mere moments before it’s posted, this episode is almost completely unedited. Time the pauses! Count the “ummm’s”! Do you want your receipt? No more signatures for chip card purchases? Paying it forward for younger readers? Probably not. Some DC news out of this weekend’s Fan Expo Toronto. A brief interview with “Ryan Browne.” Lots of new events!
When should we have Daniel Warren Johnson in to sign for MURDER FALCON #1? There are several new Image comics we’re excited about… MAN-EATERS, CEMETERY BEACH and MCMLXXV (1975). We’ve gotten to read them and are excited for them all, to differing extents. Also, Black Crown’s LODGER. Closing a second location vs. closing an original location. Is Marvel going to kill Honey Badger? Mike Norton and Ryan Browne will be at Challengers this upcoming week. You should be, too.
