It’s time! Our podcast is ending, and so is Marvel’s Ultimate universe! Jeff Loeb’s contentious ULTIMATUM serves as the Final Destination of our comic book critique, and we have a loooot of things to say about it—almost two hours of material! For this crossover event we pull our original host Joe out of the Speed […]

Our final Trade of Patreon episodes features mostly single issues of random modern comics that almost made it into our main show. Most of these were also released at the tail end of our Patreon’s lifespan so it’s only appropriate to end with them. We check out some weird holiday comics that were leftover from […]

This Patreon collection features the episodes where we were too lazy to narrate comic issues. So we instead have talks about movies instead though some of these discussions are more general discussions about super heroes in general. We discuss Man of Steel, the Bleach movie, and more! We also have a fun skit from Darryl […]

Our biggest and most successful Patreon collection appropriately features most people’s entryway into comics: a big event.

Ryan hates it right […]

For our second Patreon collection, we’re focusing on the Patreon mascot himself: Jimmy Olsen. For some reason Superman’s powerless sidekick had his own series in the Silver Age and it ran for over 100 issues. But is he really Superman’s Pal or something more sinister? Come and listen to our own unique interpretations to his […]

With the end of the Flying Machine Network, we’re releasing all our old Patreon episodes to our regular feed in bulk!

Eobard Thawne AKA Professor Zoom (as well as an extended discussion over the trial of Barry Allen)! There’s drug rings, time travel, a […]

Who shot JFK? It’s one of the enduring questions that America has never found a satisfying answer to. And it’s also… a question that pops up a lot in the Vertigo reboot of an old Steve Ditko character, Shade the Changing Man! Come on a wild ride with us as we hop into a serial […]

Superman has gone rogue! Or… not-Superman has gone rogue and it’s up to the not-Justice League to stop him! Darryl, Phil, and Sly take a trip through the first eight issues of Mark Waid’s Irredeemable, and emerge out the other end… feeling bad for a genocidal killer?

It’s the end of the year, which means we’ve compiled our favorites and least favorites of 2019! It was a pretty packed year, so things might shake out differently than you’d expect!

This is it! Ichigo must race to the soul palace to save the Soul King! Or… does he have to? Does it matter? Does any of this matter? The DI crew is losing their minds trying to process what is happening at the very end of Bleach, bringing us to perhaps the most daunting question […]

We’re back at it! Our saga through Bleach is nearing its close as we discuss the final two arcs left in the series. The first 30 minutes are spent discussing the “filler” arc, and then it’s on to the craziest, dumbest, and worst-drawn arc yet! Darryl calls Tatsuki “Taki” like a Soulcalibur scrub, Phil is […]

On this episode, we’re diving into the torrid history of The Clone Saga, and we’re bringing our non-fans Darryl and Phil kicking and screaming into Ben Reilly’s tragic backstory. We cover his lab-grown birth, the discovery of his own unique identity, and his struggle with yet another clone, KAINE. Only after we record do we […]

We’ve been waiting for those fights for so long that they’re bound to be really good and definitely […]

The consensus is in: Bleach is not “terrible!” The gang begins their descent into Bleach’s canonical hell (well, purgatory), Hueco Mundo! Another lady is need of saving, the Espada are in need of a beating, and Kubo’s backgrounds are in need of some buildings! We’re only halfway through, so hang in there!
