Show Notes for Episode 11: I AM PERLMON
09:00 - We might be way off base, but BATMAN #3 gives us the impression that Alfred might be up to something.
18:40 - Dissenting opinions abound among the Thwipping Boys when it comes to GUY GARDNER BEING A BADASS #3.
24:14 - I,VAMPIRE #3 was in the podcast plan, but since DC can’t seem to put accurate information on its website (or indeed IN the comics) we decided to randomly try MUDMAN #1 from Image Comics instead.
31:55 - We get our Casting Caps on and try to pick an actor to play the perfect DOCTOR STRANGE.
53:30 - JUSTICE LEAGUE #3 causes us to ask what the hell is going on with this book? Is Geoff Johns trying to illustrate Bipolar Disorder by way of a superhero team comic or something?
62:25 - NIGHTWING #3 wins some respect by featuring a bearded lady, but Simon senses this one is in trouble before we even start talking about it.
69:30 - The best bit of RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #3 featured neither The Outlaws nor Red Hood (not specifically), so where does that leave this book?
77:40 - SUPERGIRL #3 has glacial plot progression, but it turns out that’s fashionable, so that’s OK then.
86:55 - WONDER WOMAN #3 ruins her origin story for our friends in the Young Republican Society, but we quite like it.
96:25 - Chris is loving MARVELS #2 but asks the question we’ve all asked at one point or another, why hasn’t Alex Ross been more prolific, dammit!?
