Cory is off babysitting Aquababy in Atlantis, but when the cat's away, the mouse will get a delightful guest co-host! This week, Hub is joined by Elisabeth Allie from the Thor: The Lightning and the Storm podcast. Hooray!
Hub and Elisabeth take a look at New Teen Titans #18, and discuss: maybe spies should be allowed to lie, the continued character assassination of Wally West, the film You Got Served, implausible character names, Angela Lansbury, and the Titans are the Gwenyth Paltrows of the DCU! Join us as we examine, "The Mad Dog 20/20 of comic books."
Our hosts take a look at the totally delightful Defenders #12. Topics of discussion include: Three Men and a Baby ghost stories; happy flower smelling Hulk is the best Hulk; Dr. Strange is a poor listener; and Xemnu shenanigans and mnemonic devices! All this, plus some exciting upcoming guest host announcements! Enjoy! Enjoy!
Our hosts take a look at New Teen Titans #17. Topics of discussions include: anemia is like catnip to mythological kidnappers, People magazine in the DCU is an editorial minefield, Hub mixes up fricatives and plosives (again!), and Cory is an advertising wizard.
All this, plus a Giant T-Rex takes a boat to the face! It's good!
Our hosts tackle the problematic Defenders #11. Topics include: 70's racism vs 80's racism vs today's racism, Steves being Steves, Chewbacca barflies, AV miscues fucking up Hub's first comedy sketch, partially M.O.D.O.K.ed Robert Blakes, and the true secret origin of Santa Clause! All this plus the sense shattering debut of "Wong Day's Journey Into Night"! It probably won't actually shatter any of your senses, but better safe than sorry! Alarm! Alarm!
Starfire Unleashed! Sort of! Kinda! Our hosts take a look at New Teen Titans #16. Topics of discussion include: The Last Dragon, is Azarath in New England?, the return of everyone's favorite caricature of an Italian stereotype, Starfire is not great at secret identities, and a surprising amount of J. Geils Band talk. All this, plus the return of a beloved segment, where we learn the whereabouts of a certain teen with sea strengthened limbs! Enjoy! Enjoy!
The Avengers/Defenders War finally reaches its conclusion! Hooray!
Topics of discussion include: Dormammu's jumpsuit rom com, Cory sure doesn't like Hawkeye, Hulk dick punches an anthropomorphic dick right in the dick, and Iron Man being terrible at metaphors. So says Dr. Strange!
The Brotherhood of Evil is back! And they brought their terrible accents with them! Topics of discussion include: terrarium chat, murder is probably mostly bad, Wonder Girl seems to have put her cat strangling ways behind her, criminal utopias, and whether or not cavemen eat robots! Sorry this one is a little late, technical difficulties abounded.
The Avengers/Defenders War rolls on! Hulk and Thor have a grand old time punching the bejeezus out of each other, and our hosts have a grand old time reading about it. Topics of discussion include: Hub and Cory are marketing geniuses, actual beach bunnies can be a real menace, Hawkeye and geese are the worst, nothing is tougher than a confident hugger, and a potential new segment. All this, plus Steve Strange's lizard pal, Hub slanders Uatu's hosting skills, and the hot new catchphrase "By my whole Dad!" Enjoy! Enjoy!
It's been a long day, a long issue, and our hosts are a little loopy. Topics of discussion include: Raven's go-to rescue moves usually involve horrific emotional trauma, Hub reads comics in a fugue state, the potential return of a hypnotic baboon, the new 5 laws of robotics, and military ranks as they pertain to potential evil-doing. I think. It's been a long day. All this, plus a new installment of Hostess Fruit Pie Theatre! Enjoy! Enjoy!
The Avengers/Defenders War is nearing its conclusion! Hub shares some Easter fun facts, Cory wishes the issue was frothier, we introduce new lucrative characters The Boodle Bandit and Lil' Jimmy, that Evil Eye still looks like a robo-vagina, and Cory uses a veto which forbids Hub from editing out an embarrassing admission. All this, plus the best way to kill a nazi, a battle of the tiny winged heroes, and an actual conversation between adversaries! It's a frothy breeze! I'm sorry, Cory, but it is!
