CBMFP 245: Colon

It's the week after Comic-Con! You'd think there wouldn't be any news, but then Superman was revealed on Supergirl! That's not the only movie news... since that's primarily what we have to cover. Marvel Studios clarifies the next two Avengers films, while Captain Boomerang is tripping shrooms. On a completely non-comic related story, Luc Besson is found guilt of plagiarizing John Carpenter?! And on the actual comic side of things Marvel's Prostate Cancer Awareness Variants aren't all they're cracked up to be.

CBMFP 244: My Underwear Is Wet

It's another heavy Comic-Con episode as Comic-Con is in full swing while we recorded. We start the show with a lot of trailer talk including: Justice League, Wonder Woman, Defenders, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. That rolls us right into the news that a Ghost Rider will be appearing on the fourth (and hopefully final) season of Marvel's Agents of S.h.i.e.l.d. There's more DC talk as the previously discussed Justice League Action is revealed and shown to the world. There's a different type of controversy surrounding the animated Batman: The Killing Joke and Bryan Lee O'Malley's new comic is revealed. This is all just the tip of the iceberg because there's even more to discuss.

Books briefly reviewed on this episode:

  • Sombra #1
  • Betty & Veronica #1
  • Justice League #1
  • Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #5
  • The Hunt #1
  • and Stranger Things... a little.
