Meanwhile… Mr. Fixit, Illegal Machine, & Diabolu Frank talk about the first official trailer to the 2017 Warner Brothers Justice League film for about twenty times longer that the trailer actually runs, and the CGI is nowhere near as bad as our audio.

DC Special Podcast: The Joke That Keeps On Killing

Meanwhile… Mr. Fixit, Illegal Machine, & Diabolu Frank look at the controversial 1988 Batman: The Killing Joke prestige format one-shot that has gone from one of the most revered works of a new wave of mature readers books to a (mostly) direct-to-video animated film and an albatross around the neck of DC’s attempts at outreach to modern women not in refrigerators. While the comic and flick are a touchstone, this is less an individual critique than a debate about the treatment of prominent females in comics. But bro-ier than that sounds. Beyond Alan Moore and Brian Bolland, we also talk Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello, Rafael Albuquerque, and more. We also go broader than Barbara Gordon to other imperiled heroines like Supergirl, Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, Cassandra Caine, The Huntress, Bat-Girl, Batwoman, Superwoman, and yes, Sansa Stark. If you’re not up to date with Game of Thrones or Orange Is The New Black, this episode may be even more problematic for you than usual.

DC Special: Rebirth Pain

Meanwhile… Mr. Fixit & Diabolu Frank talk briefly about DC’s latest not-a-reboot, Reberf, its shallow talent pool due to past brush-ups, as well as the shift at Vertigo from a creative doorway to a mail slot. If you’re super-duper excited and positive about the direction of DC Comics, you’re listening to the wrong podcast. There’s nothing but bellyaching and backbiting here.

Look for us on iTunes & ShoutEngine

Meanwhile… Mr. Fixit & Diabolu Frank welcome back the uncensored cuss words favored by Rolled Spine Podcast listeners as they discuss the “Berlantiverse” of DC television adaptations The Flash, Supergirl, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. It’s an ADHD ramble though, so the conversation jumps around to the announcement of #Rebirth, Alan Moore’s legacy at the company, Jack Cole’s Plastic Man, Snyder & Capullo Batman, the Dark Knight Returns sequels, Roy Harper Lee, Forever Evil, the DTV animated movie Batman: Assault on Arkham, and in a real tangent, Deadpool, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the showdown between the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the FoXCU and the DC Extended Universe.
