This week, I’m still with Superboy as we follow him over to his super teen friends for Teen Titans Volume 4: Light and Dark, where Trigon makes his move and Raven joins the team. It’s an apocalyptic slug fest that manages to illumine and frustrate at the same time. What do I mean by that? I guess you’ll just have to listen to find out. Teen Titans Volume 4: Light and Dark collects Teen Titans 18-23.
Lily and Jon are coming at you this time with three more episodes of Agents of SHIELD and two comic book adventures. First, Iron Man meets an iron patriot, but not of America. No, this is the Crimson Dynamo on visit from the halls of Khrushchev, set to take down Iron Man for the good of the Soviet Union. And then, Dr. Strange must face his first repeat villain, Baron Mordo. Wait, it’s only his third adventure, and he’s already repeating villains? Not even the X-Men stooped that low!
This time out, I take a break from my story coverage to interview the writer of last week’s Superboy arc, Justin Jordan. We discuss Superboy, his antagonists in the story, where the story might have gone, and the forces that kept it from going there. I thank Justin Jordan for his openness about his time on the book, and I hope you enjoy the interview!
It’s another Spider-Flashback episode as Lily and Jon look back at Amazing Spider-Man 2. It’s old guys’ night out as Spidey has to take on the Vulture and the Tinkerer, but will Spidey win if he’s so busy running out of webs and fangirlling over celebrities? Only a download and a listen will answer that question!
This time out, I’m joined by a friend to take a look at the final volume to feature the solo adventures of Kon-El, the clone of steel! Justin Clarke is my guest as we take a look at the antics of Superboy and a pair of Psychos, not to mention a certain Last Dog of Krypton! Superboy Volume 4: Blood and Steel contains Superboy 20-25, Superman 25, and Teen Titans Annual 2.
A few days late, but here is the latest outing of Lily and Jon Wilson, as they catch up with the God of Thunder and their favorite insect-sized duo. It’s the end of an era of sorts for both books. Robert Bernstein has his last dance with Thor, putting him up against Mad Merlin, who has just woken up cranky after a millennium or so. And the final Ant-Man story in this run sees Pym and his lady love tackle the querulous quills of the Porcupine. Also in the MCU Rewatch, Thor: The Dark World! Come give a listen!
In this latest episode of The New 52 Adventures of Superman, I take a look at our visitor from Earth 2, Kara Zor-El aka Karen Starr aka Super Girl aka Power Girl, as she and her partner the Huntress confront Desaad over the way he’s destroyed her life recently, only to take a major knock to her ability to control her powers. Worlds’ Finest Volume 3: Control Issues contains Worlds’ Finest 13-18.
