This week’s show is a bit different since Bobby is off on exotic (work related) adventures. He’ll be away for a couple of weeks, but don’t fret and don’t you frown! We will still be bringing you weekly podcasts in his absence – and some really special ones at that…

On this week’s show, the internet cuts out for a little bit and Stephanie gets kicked off the line, but in the meantime before her [triumphant] return, the guys talk about Daredevil, Hawkeye, Strange Attractors, Lazarus, Batman/Superman, Age of Ultron #10 A.I. and upon Stephanie’s [triumphant] return she brings up The Wake, Aquaman, X-Men, Jupiter’s Legacy, Batman/Superman and a few others.

Lots of this week’s news is discussed and the gang also take the time to answer a few of your always awesome listener questions.

Annnnnnnnnnd… we say it on the show, but just in case you missed it, the Talking Comics crew on Twitter are:

    Image offering DRM-free digital copies of their comics sounds like a good idea for those that want to share their digital purchases but as Stephanie said, the convenience of Comixology is hard to resist. Also, wouldn’t the comic lack the “guided view” that a proper comic reading app would offer? I’ve never read a comic digitally outside of Comixology so I don’t know that for sure, but if that is the case, DRM-free isn’t intriguing enough for me.

    I appreciate you guys answering my question about Battle of the Atom even though I know it’s entirely a personal decision. I’m curious to hear what Bob thinks of Brian Wood’s X-Men for those two months since they’ll be in middle of the event. I’m hoping that the issues will read well on their own and won’t require the use of Wikipedia, but I’m still skeptical given that the books are very specifically numbered for the event. Right now I’m torn between buying the Battle of the Atom issues or cherry picking a number of DC Villain’s Month titles. September is not a good month for saving money.

    So Steph was at the Canada Day Captain Canuck premiere? I was totally there, and I’m not gonna lie, I was actually looking around to see if she was, too.

    It was definitely a ton of fun.

      I was! If you watched the premiere, there was no way you could’ve missed me. My head was totally in the way! Hahaha… I was wandering around the shop before and after too! Do you go to the Silver Snail very often?

        My local comic place is actually near Pape, if you have any idea where that is. That being said, I can’t help stepping into the Silver Snail whenever I’m in the area.

        My Canada Day was kind of a bummer, but the premiere of the webisode helped a ton, and I bought Nextwave, which maybe helped even more.

      • Stephanie Cooke

        I ACTUALLY almost bought Nextwave on Canada Day too. SERIOUSLY. CRAZY! And yes, I am familiar with that area! I lived there for a while with my crazy Oma. Well, in that area-ish. The Silver Snail is my stomping ground though. I love the owners so I almost exclusively give my business to them! 😀

      • nocommayes

        That is SERIOUSLY CRAZY! Really, though, what are the chances?

        I’ve kind of got a “Buy 10 Get 1 Free” thing for TPBs at my other store, so I feel guilty and like I’m not getting my money’s worth when I buy anywhere else.

        But it was Canada Day, so I had to celebrate somehow, right?
