AC36banner

Episode 036 is live! and you can catch it here!

How we spent our bank holiday weekend, how the movie studios and fans alike are letting down the printed comic book industry, the dilemma of keeping up with the zeitgeist (or choosing not to), how we tackle “resuming” runs that we took a long break from reading, the harms of rushing to “solve” a story, and of course our usual roundup of our reads both new and old.

 

In this episode, GregLeon and Rahul discuss their bank holiday weekend plans, watching Deadpool 2 and Solo (and associated cinema horror stories), their wants and misgivings on the current state of comic book movie adaptations, how both the movie studios and the comic fan-base are letting down the comics industry, the dilemma of having to sacrifice the comics you want to read in order to keep up with the zeitgeist (or choosing not to), how we tackle “resuming” runs that we took a long break from reading, how we sometimes focus too much on “solving” a story or piece of art instead of letting it gestate, and the topic of mental health through the lens of comic books.

Greg and Leon also recently guest starred on “Dynamite in the Brain: The Podcast That Loves Anime” to discuss the recently released Batman Ninja (2018) movie. Be sure to check it out, and subscribe to DitB!
