This week; Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck appear to be out as Superman and Batman. Ewan McGregor has been cast as villain Black Mask in DC's Birds of Prey. Jennifer reviews an episode of Batman the Animated Series called Heart of Ice that Bryan made her watch.
This week tempers flare and friendships are tested as we try to agree on the four best comic book movies of all time. Join us as we defend our picks and attack everyone else's in the hopes of securing as many spots as we can on the Mount Rushmore of Comic Book Movies!
This week Bryan, Jennifer, and Rob discuss whether or not criminals should be allowed to profit from their crimes by publishing books or selling their story. Also, DC cancelled plans to reprint a 1940s Captain Marvel story called "Monster Society of Evil" due to concerns regarding the portrayal of ethnic stereotypes.
It might be a few months later than we planned, but it's finally here! Bryan, Jennifer, Kevin, and Rob sit down for a Big Time book club episode and talk about the 1988 DC graphic novel, The Killing Joke. Written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Brian Bolland.
Considered by some to be a classic and ground breaking, The Killing Joke dives into the disturbing relationship between Batman and the Joker, testing the boundaries between insanity and perseverance.

Now that San Diego Comic-Con is over, we talk about the trailers for Teen Titans, Shazam!, Aquaman, and The Walking Dead. Speaking of Aquaman, Rob once again impersonates Jason Momoa much to the chagrin of Jennifer (and probably everyone).
Rob and Bryan discuss why two grown adults would still be reading comic books well into their 40s. This is the first in a series where we'll dive into the world of comics and explore characters, stories, creators, and how comics engage with readers.
This week, Rob and Bryan chat with Andy Schmidt from Comics Experience! Andy shares a bit about his time as an editor for Marvel and IDW and how his work on Annihilation influenced the current cinematic version of Guardians of the Galaxy. We also talk about what he's doing now with Comics Experience to help creators learn, connect, and get published with their new partnership with Source Point Press.
