Show Notes for Ep. 29 – The Order of Dumbass
00:33 – Comixology were giving it away for free, so we checked out the first part of THE CURSE OF SHAZAM BACKUP.
05:15 – From Vertigo and Dan Abnett comes THE NEW DEADWARDIANS #1. Socio-political commentary featuring the undead? Yes please.
12:27 – We weren’t sure what the point of an Issue Zero was before this week. Reading AVENGERS Vs. X-MEN #0 didn’t really change that.
25:21 – Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic continue to wow with ULTIMATE ULTIMATES #8.
36:35 – If AQUAMAN #7 is any indication this series is on something of a slide.
42:24 – BATMAN #508 from June 1994 featured Azrael.
51:25 – We thought reviewing Alan Moore’s masterpiece might be hard work and WATCHMEN CHAPTER V is where we start to be proved right.
63:42 – JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #7 started the first part of a crossover with a certain DC title.
71:01 – I,VAMPIRE #7 features an appearance with a certain “Dark Team”…who could that be?
81:07 – As Jon has said before, he knew who killed Sue Dibney despite never having read IDENTITY CRISIS #7. Or did he?

    Whay don’t you review the new Dan Jurgens SUPERMAN and Alan Moore SUPREME issue that just came out? Do y’all have no taste?!?

  2. Thwipping Boys Says:

    In terms of Superman, our pull pile is pretty full at this point, we’d rather wait for a creative team we respect to come on to Superman before we jump back on, and Dan Jurgens is not it.
