Episode 91: Lizard Man is Not a Minority Characters

Episode 91! Minorities! DC Imploding! Savage Dragon! Powerpuff Girls! and Lizard Men...

This one has a little bit of everything. There is a lengthy discussion about the new J.J. Abrams Star Wars films spurred on by a letter from faithful listener, Angie Alonso. The boys also talk about minorities in comics and changing existing characters to create new minority characters instead of just creating new characters. 

They also review a bunch of stuff.

Paul Reviews the latest issue of Justice League by Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis

Seth reviews Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster by Lyle Blackburn

Ethan reviews Savage Dragon 1-7 by Erik Larsen

Allen reviews the new Powerpuff Girls television program

Episode 90: Night Hawks

In all honesty episode 90 hops the rails pretty early on... and you'll love us for it. 

Paul hosts this one and he manages to keep things under control as best as possible. During the "What's Up: With Paul" segment he introduces two topics for everyone to talk about. They're both scintillating.

Then during the take it or leave it segment 

Paul reviews: Superior Spider-Man

Seth Reviews: 10 Million Bigfoot Bounty

Ethan reviews: Night Hawks (a movie from the 80's that no one's ever heard of)

Allen reviews: an Edward Hopper painting and Thor: God of Thunder's most recent arc
