This week we have special guest DC Comics writer Josh Williamson on the show to talk about his upcoming series Batman/Superman #1 which comes out in August. We also discuss The Flash “Year One” story arc, what he collects (with an anecdote about Brian Michael Bendis, Steve Orlando, and David Mack coming over), and talk about potential future creator-owned work with Mike Henderson! We also play Square Up! with Josh and discuss whether Thanos or Joker would be the better kindergarten teacher.
This week in the news DC Comics bids farewell to their DC Vertigo, DC Ink, and DC Zoom brands, DC announces a new line of YA and middle school age graphic novels, and we go over some of the biggest reveals in the Marvel September solicitations like J.J. Abrams writing Spider-Man, and more! We also take a look at the week ahead.
