BATGIRL 37, a seemingly hamfisted commentary on internet fame; DETECTIVE 37, with Hatter and Anarky goin nutsy. Moving rapidly to SINESTRO 8 gets us motherboxes. The HARLEY QUINN HOLIDAY SPECIAL has a couple fun things that’s worth a dollar box purchase. SUPERMAN 37 keeps us entertained as we see the consequences of blowing up worlds. ASTRO CITY 18 continues the great and detailed backstory of Quarrel. WOLF MOON 1 has a new take on the whole werewolf thing. JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000 13 is fun but thin.

Badly aging action stars. Eww. TechJedi mourns his one Christmas present; talk about some Emerald City preparations with some obscure books. Mention Ant-Man trailer. Honestly, it was not much of much. Talk some DC TV stuff, mention Agent Carter. Lambaste Dr Who for a little while. Eventually we get to the Indies. We start with THE FADE OUT 3, giving us pagan orgies and and ex husbands. ODY-C 1, mispell some names equals indy greatness. OUTCAST 5, Kyle and Pastor interview the possessed criminal. WYTCHES 2 Sailor seems to meet a friend, but hallucinates. MEN OF WRATH 2 We get some Rath backstory which is just out and out brutal. REVIVAL 25 brings out the wakco fundies for self crucifixion; BIG TROUBLE IN LITTE CHINA 6 has fish people gettting their slimy asses handed to them by Miao Yin. I hate BODIES 5. THE HUMANS 1 is crude and just completely unfucking funny. VELVET 8 treats us to Velvet pulling a flying nick fury squirrel routine. HOLMES AND HOUDINI 2Holmes demonstrates how Houdini could not be responsible for the murder the pevious issue. GRENDEL SHADOW 3 has betrayals and auto gyros, which we love.

We get in on some DC cancellations, which surprise some and do not shock others. Ramble and complain for a little while about events and the silliness of constant world killing events. TechJedi admits his biggest error of the year, in watching ERASERHEAD. Eventually we get to books, being DC Week; We start with the usually awesome SINESTRO 7, with the title character the pimp of all space; BATGIRL 36 disappoints us with computer geniuses that don’t know to back up their data. SUPERMAN 36 has Ulysses getting crestfallen and interdimensional villains finally showing up. WONDER WOMAN 36 is a rocky start with characterization. DETECTIVE 36 We were fine with till torture came up with dick frickin grayson. BATMAN 36 is bcoming silver agey badness, not goodness. SENSATION COMICS 4 concludes the weird proportions of the hernandez guy, but deadman was a fun guest; ASTRO CITY 17 brings us the untold story of Stormhawk and the story of the dimension of feasts. UNWRITTEN ends our episode with issues 9,10,11; there’s just too much to summarize there, but it’s amazing. go read that.

We babble about media and movies for a while and old shows. Talk about HER, the scarjo voiced AI flick. We whine about Moby Dick for a while.Eventually we get to the Marvel’s for the month which include: THOR 1 opening with a bang in the Norwegian Sea and bringing us Frost Giants. BUCKY BARNES 1, a giant miss of a book in a comics landscape that desperately needs quality spy thrillers. Ms Marvel 9 where Kamala is finally hipped to the fact she’s an Inhuman; SILVER SURFER 6 continues to amuse us with Dawn’s biological needs. UNCANNY 27 gives us ruses and omega mutants and helicarriers. ALL NEW XMEN 33 has the discount junior X-Men originals scattered through the Ultimates universe. SHE HULK 9 is really a good book that deserves to go forward, Steve having tried to ensure that his trial goes perfectly. AMAZING SPIDER MAN 7 and 8 Silk, slingshot maneuvers, Kree, and more make us smile. BLACK WIDOW 11 has Nat and X23 in Macau for some reason. CAPTAIN AMERICA 25 has arguments and heel turns and other crazy things. Not an auspicious end to the run. We finish with CAPTAIN MARVEL 8, in which flerkens be freaky.

We complain about post Crisis-Pre52 backtracking. I hate it. We move on to stuff we DO dig though with October’s Indies. GRENDEL SHADOW 2 is just such a great book. MEND OF WRATH 1 is unsentimental and is close to disturbing as well. STARLIGHT 6 ends just as expected, satisfying and a nice departure from Millars’ unrelenting gross brutality. WAR STORIES 1 and 2 please us with Enni’s return to non grossing out stuff. HOLMES HOUDINI 1 just pleases us RAGNAROK 2 took long enough everyone dies, and a bargain is struck with a God. BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA 5 is just hilarious and fun with THE HELL OF THOSE KILLED BY IDIOTS. GROO VS CONAN 4 mercifully ends WYTCHES 1 works a lot better than Snyders Batman stuff, honestly, seriously. SHADOW: MIDNIGHT IN MOSCOW 5 adds to the convolution and confusion. TREES 6 ends our association with the book, as it just ain’t good scifi. VEIL 5 Veil’s free, and one of Rucka’s few boring books. UBER 18 19 Ubers now impersonate people,nuke programs sabotaged, Brothers reunite. CALIBAN 7 finally mercifully ends, Alien style. ATOMIC ROBO KNIGHTS OF THE GOLDEN CIRCLE 5 has Robo pulling a ST:NG move. SAGA 24 baby harp seals with axes. you don’t need more. REVIVAL 24 completes the show with zombie deer, crucifixions, bomb building.

We open presents and yap a bit, about the types of nerd tees available over the years. We yap about some local comics shops; one great, one, um, not. No Sir. Rev issues a challenge! We randomly yap for 26 minutes before getting into the DCs. We start with BATGIRL 35-which is not meant for us. Troll DJs are not for us. SENSATION COMICS 3, rockstars, groupies, golden fleece, and gil. WONDER WOMAN 35 the last of the Azzarellos, tying things up nicely. SUPERMAN 35-Ending the Machinist fight and getting to know you with Ulysses. DETECTIVE 35 gives us the great, almost retro adventure of an interrupted vacation for Bruce. BATMAN 35 is disjointed and strange. SINESTRO 6 with Thaal visiting the Indigoes. ASTRO CITY 16 featuring Simon the bully victim fighting back. AMERICAN VAMPIRE 5 mining claims, but it doesn’t matter cause the next 3 are cancelled. We end with BODIES 4 makes even less sense than 1 through 3

We wish the Rev a happy birthday, and I’m excited about an episode. We try to watch AntiSocial; we fail. It’s Indie week so we start off with WITCH OF HARJU 3-ending the series. We hit SHADOW MIDNIGHT IN MOSCOW 4; interrogations and intimidations. UNITED STATES OF MURDER INC 5 which is probably our last; BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA 4 fighting monkeys-you need no more. MANIFEST DESTINY 10-capturing giant mosquitoes and demon frogs. CONAN THE AVENGER 6, where we leave this title at home. GROO CONAN 3 which finally gives us the fight; SIRENS 1, a total disappointment; VELVET 7 Velvet eaves a breadcrumb trail for following agents. CALIBAN 6 the remaining crew get ready for the finally conflict with karien. OUTCAST 4 shows us some naughy neighbors. SAGA 23 ludicrous demands from the killer janitor crusader tv dude. ELLISON’S CITY ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER 4 kirk and keeler-love for the ages. TREES 5 is slow and personal and boring and confusing. NAILBITER 5 interrogations and backstory. UBER 17 new tactics for new raids, and moles in British intelligence. GRENDEL SHADOW 1 is the Grendel book and the Shadow we’ve been dying for. EXTINCTION PARADE 3 is weird and boring.

We watch WITCHIN’ AND BITCHIN’, which turned out hilarious.We bitch a little bit ourselves. Which is boring. TJ is dreadfully disappointed about the cancellation of She Hulk. We quickly note thh onslaught of Marvel flicks in the next couple years. We talk movie slates and whether DC should even be hyping till something else is delivered. Compare Flash dating, GA and GL dating your sister. We finally get to Marvels and we start with SHE HULK 8; Cap is on trial and it’s pretty interesting. We move to AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 6-where J Jonah just can’t stop screwing himself. This allows TJ to rant about nerds screwing Themselves. Hit some XMEN of various sorts, where tearing down dead icons seems de riguer. Hit some THOR with 25, hangin out in the library, finding hidden books. Get to some Ms Marvel with 8, starring Lockjaw. Do some HAWKEYE vs DEADPOOL, fun but mildly confusing. Leads us into Hawkeye’s own book, which yet again has nothing to do with clint barton. Capt Marvel 7-alien octopus. More XMEN. Hit HULK 6 with sigh Doc Green; SAVAGE HULK doesnt do it for us. CAPTAIN AMERICA 24 finishes off with a big bomb. We end on the down note of Black Widow 10. Accountants and Islamabad. Weird.
