LOTS of stuff went down this week and all before we recorded so there is quite a bit to go over. There’s the controversy over Rafael Albuquerque’s Batgirl variant cover and The Killing Joke. There’s the post-Convergence costumes for Wonder Woman and Superman that were revealed (spoilers: they’re awful). And then there’s certain higher ups over at Image ranting about the “vocal minority” on Twitter and then pulling a very Rob Ford-esque apology. So, you know. Stuff happened.

If you get a chance, make sure to check out this blog by Adam Gorham regarding the male fanboy perspective on the Batgirl variant controversy and The Killing Joke.

We get into everything throughout the show and then there’s the good ol’ regular segments in which we talk about comics. These ones in particular…

The Comic Book Podcast is brought to you by Talking Comics (www.talkingcomicbooks.com), a blog dedicated to covering the latest and greatest in comic book releases. The editorial staff is composed of Editor-in-Chief Bobby Shortle (Fanboy Remix, Doctor Whocast), Stephanie Cooke (Misfortune Cookie) and Steve Seigh (JoBlo.com contributor) who weekly dissect the releases and give you, the consumer, a simple Roman yay or nay regarding them. Our Twitter handle is @TalkingComics and you can email us at info@talkingcomicbooks.com.

Stephanie is [obviously] a comic book fan, but she also considers herself an avid gamer, movie watcher, lover of music, board games fan (although she doesn’t find nearly enough time for them…) and being snarky. Oh, and Twitter. Twitter’s a hobby, right?…

What's your reaction?
