Mini One Shot – The Tesseract, The Snyderverse and more…

As soon as we got online to record a new episode, Todd started ranting about a video he’d just watched that twisted his brain into a pretzel. Taylor said, “hit record.” If he hadn’t, we wouldn’t have anything to share this week. Beset with technical problems moments later, we cobbled together most of the pre-episode...

Episode Sixteen: A Figure in Hiding ft. Jack Wefso pt. 2

Hey everybody! Here’s part 2! My guest for this episode is my brother and co-producer Jack Wefso, an actor of great regard. This is an especially great book in my opinion, because it features something that the books have been sorely lacking: a gang with a gimmick! In this stupid and pointless adventure, we encounter...

#106 – Batman Reborn

On this episode of Panelism, Todd talks about a Morrison / Quitely joint that’s almost ten years old — Batman & Robin: Batman Reborn. He and Taylor try to place the comic in the right context. Was in New 52? At any rate, the book came out in one universe reboot after Bruce Wayne had...

#103 – Comic Books: Rent or Own?

On this episode of Panelism, Taylor and Todd tackle one of those questions that comes up again and again during our comic book discussions: in a digital world, is it better to own or rent (via subscription) your comic books? That brings up a lot of other questions that we discuss as well.

#102 – Unnatural Vol 1

Well, Taylor asks the obvious question, “what does that even mean?” after Todd introduces the episode. This book, Unnatural by Mirka Andolfo, is really unusual. It’s a story about a totalitarian government…and the pig people, mouse people, wolf people, and goat people who are oppressed by said government because they…can’t legally get it on together....
