Episode 13 sees The Thwipping Boys noticeably tired despite their week off, while Jon is drunk and slurring his words from the get-go. OK so that doesn’t sound like a thrilling call to action but whatever. Also sorry about the weird noise that pops up throughout this, we haven’t isolated it yet. Let’s say it’s a “feature”.
Show Notes for Episode 13: Hiccups!
01:35 – We meant to simply mention Charlie Brooker’s BLACK MIRROR and tell you to watch it, but we ended up reviewing it in depth and [almost] spoiling it.
09:40 – We review THE SHADE #1 to appease one of our listeners, and are glad we did!
21:22 – ACTION COMICS #4 sees us starting to sour on this series. Grant Morrison’s name alone has kept us on this so far, so we’re hoping it pays off at some point…soon.
39:45 – ANIMAL MAN #4 is so good it’s just ridiculous.
57:57 – We dropped the book after issue 3 but a veto from Chris bought OMAC #4 back into contention. Plus! We get sidetracked by the difference between US and UK sewer systems.
67:10 – STORMWATCH #4 still sees us confused by this series, and despite the team’s continuing insistence that they’re not just superheroes we’re not quite sure what separates them from the Justice League.
84:20 – While we review SWAMP THING #4 we discover a horrifying truth – Chris is not of the opinion that anything can be improved by simply adding dinosaurs.
102:10 – We desperately need a title for this feature about whether Chris thinks we should bring back classic characters to the DCnU or leave them buried forever. This week we discuss GLORIOUS GODFREY.
116:50 – Not even the hurricane raging outside can distract us from Chris’ take of the final chapter of the wonderful MARVELS.
