Tim and I tease a little bit about X-Men Origins: Wolverine, there will be a full review next week as well as one for Star Trek so hang tight for that.

We discuss Free Comic Book Day, when I picked up Blackest Night Zero. It’s a fantastic primer for what’s happening in the Lantern Corps and the coming Blackest Night story arch which we think will be THE story of the summer. Tim gives us a little history on the Anti Monitor, because he’s very important to the Blackest Night story. See if your local comic shop still has some copies of it.

Everything begins this July with Green Lantern 43 and Blackest Night 1.

And you must get this T Shirt right now:

We finish up the Neil Gaiman Batman story. It was an odd ending and we don’t get where this fits into the rest of the Batman stories, especially with what happened in Final Crisis. One of the problems with getting a guest writer like Neil Gaiman is you expect a lot, maybe too much. Plus, his style is very different than what Batman readers are used to. It’s still a good story, but we’ll wait to see what happens before we place

Tim reviews the latest Green Lantern, how mixing blue and green is pretty dang powerful, and his battle against the Orange Lantern. I might be done with Ghost Rider already. It’s a little too campy for me right now. I will check out Jason Aaron’s other book Wolverine Weapon X though.

Tim has found a great comic, which unfortunately has been pulled from production, called Manhunter. Think Law & Order with super villains and a lawyer that turns vigilante when the system breaks down, but not like DareDevil.

We end the show with a little talk about Fables, which we’ll really get into in a few weeks.

    When will you speak of Kalel……the son of Krypton….the king of all superheroes…..the leader of Justice League….WHENNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    please talk about superman….

  • Good question. I'm not really a Superman fan so I'll ask around to see if someone would like to jump in and talk about it.

  • Tim Robinson

    I’m not his biggest fan either, but I can share some knowledge of what’s been going on with him lately. He’s got his own big storyline he’s in that Geoff Johns (writer of Green Lantern) is putting together.
