Just about a year ago, the DC New 52 sparked an idea in Bobby’s head. An idea that would later become Talking Comics and the Talking Comics podcast.
Not that we’re trying to get all emotional on y’all. Or maybe we are.
Back on the ranch… this week’s show is dedicated to the DC New 52. Since, again, it started this adventure, it was fitting to bring things full circle with a recap of our year with DC’s little experiement.
Of course, in addition to the DC New 52 comics we talk about, we discuss some interesting news stuff, Stephanie regales us with stories of where she’s been for the past couple of weeks (hint: whatever she says is a lie… she’s REALLY working as the vigilante superhero known as Shenanigirl) and the gang tell us their Books of the Week. Some of those comics include Love and Capes, X-Factor, Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre, Phantom Stranger, Wonder Woman, Metal Men and Fantastic Four. I’ll let you figure out whose favourites were whose from that list.
Annnnnnnnnnd… we say it on the show, but just in case you missed it, the Talking Comics crew on Twitter are:
FYI: the gang have brand new avatars on Twitter, Facebook and they’ll be uploaded here to the Talking Comics site shortly. The crew have gone all superhero on the world, thanks to the wonderful Hanie Mohd (a FANTASTIC artist who recently had her art featured in the back of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Captain Marvel #1). Like them? Make sure to follow her and let us know what you think of our new superhero pictures.
