"In brightest day, in blackest night..."
The title says it all, ladies and gentlemen. Join us this week as Allen, Ethan, Paul and Seth dig into Geoff Johns historic run on Green Lantern.
But first the news! Talk of a new Superman animated movie from Bruce Timm & Zac Effron... I mean Snyder. Rumors of a possible Namor series penned by James Robinson! And Seth randomly reviews Fast & Furious 6!
Then the fellas review, discuss, disect, and heap adoration on Geoff Johns' nigh-on-a-decade Green Lantern run. They give us a rundown of what they love, what they like, and what they think may have changed the course of history.

Episode 64 brings the band back together for their first recording as a complete collective in three weeks.
What do they talk about? Well, the intro alone contains a lengthy discussion about Star Trek Into Darkness spurred on by a listener letter. Then they talk about the Arrow season finale. That's just the intro though...
During the news they dig into the Agents of Shield and the latest round of DC's New 52 cancellations.
Then the Take-it-or-Leave-it segment.
Allen review Green Team #1 and Regular Show #1.
Ethan reviews Half Past Danger #1 and X-O Manowar #13.
Paul reviews Justice League #20 and Adventures of Superman #4.
Seth reviews Superman #20 and Iron Man #10
And then they group hug like a flock of penguins riding out a cold winter's night.

The Ancillary Characters are back to basics with this week's episode! While Seth is off preparing to tie the knot next week, Paul and Allen take over as the Dynamic Duo of Podcasts! They bounce back and forth with friendly banter for a good 50 minutes. Oh, and they talk about comics, comic news, and just generally enjoy one anothers company.
You'll find all kinds of coolness in the form of Marvel Movie talk, Teen Titans GO!, Avengers #11, Adventure Time #15, Thor God of Thunder #8, Uncanny Avengers #8, and Amelia Cole and the Hidden War #1. So yeah, some cool stuff. Seth and Ethan may be away for the week, but you won't wanna miss this Sultry Southern Segment. Love you.

Time for the Characters to do some heavy welding, and computer programming as they cobble together an episode devoted entirely to Iron Mania!
We talk comics news: The Thor: The Dark World trailer, the possible Death of Wolverine and more.
Then they move into the take-it-or-leave-it segment, with only Iron Man books.
They team review Iron Man: Extremis!
Allen reviews Demon in a Bottle and Iron Man: Noir and the Iron Man 3 tie-in comic.
Paul reviews Marvel Now! Iron Man 1-5, the Iron Man Annual focusing on the Mandarin, and Iron Man: Heroes Reborn 1.
Seth reviews Matt Fraction's Iron Man, Iron Man: Legacy of Doom, Tales of Suspense 50 and Iron Man: Inevitable.

Yeah? That so? Well here's what I have to say to that!... You're right. There are comics for kids, video games for kids, and certainly action figures and other toys for kids. But this truth does not mean that adults have no place enjoying them just the same. In fact, I would daresay that we can enjoy some of these things to an even greater extent as adults, as grown-ups who fully comprehend the value of things like these. The fact of the matter is, while I may be a 26 year old married man with responsibilities, bills, and all kinds of kinds of other grown-up goodies, I love comics. I love video games. And yes, I love toys.
Are you a toy lover? Do you yearn to fill your top shelf with beautiful, colorful figurines of your favorite fictional figures? So do I. That's why this week's pick goes to, not a comic, but a set of TOYS!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Action Figure Set (Playmate Toys)
