This week, the gang dives deep into two of the biggest comics-related news stories of the week: the now-infamous comments from some Marvel execs on diversity, creative teams, and events and the blockbuster announcement that Joss Whedon would be directing and writing an upcoming Batgirl film. Words are exchanged, thoughts are shared, and the conversation gets critical. (~1:45:30)
But before all that, Bob, Steve, and Joey talk some of the best comic books from last week’s stands, including the grand finales to Mark Waid and Chris Samnee’s run on Black Widow, Dennis Hopeless’ Spider-Woman, and James Tynion IV and Rian Sygh’s Backstagers. Check it!
