Comic Timing – Episode 178: Batman V Superman V Comic Timing

BvSTrinity

STAY DOWN. Our Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice episode has arrived! And boy oh boy is it a whopper. Brandon Christopher, Raphael Soohoo, Brent and Ian have put together just about three hours of content for you all to enjoy, both live from Philadelphia right after Ian and Brandon saw the movie, and back in the studio a few days later via Skype. Brent presents a thesis on why the current movie Superman is so divisive among the geek community, we talk as a group on whether or not Batman should wield guns, how awesome Wonder Woman is and how she’s the best part of the movie, Lex Luthor’s manic tendencies, the whole Doomsday thing, earning the respect of the world, Alfred’s usefulness, Lois’ usefulness, Zack Snyder’s usefulness, and a whole lot more.

Fair warning: if you’re looking for a 100% glowing review, I suggest you look elsewhere. Like Raging Bullets, because they’re awesome. But if you’re looking for a critical eye that doesn’t dip into yelling at each other, stick around Comic Timing. You’ve come to the right place.

Comic Timing – Episode 176: A Raging Review of 2015

ant-man-1435327553

Just like that, 2015 has shrunk in between the atoms, never to be seen again! In its place stands 2016, which also happens to be the 10th year of Comic Timing. And what better way to start off this milestone year than with two of Brent and Ian’s mos regular guests: Sean Whelan and Jim Segulin of the Raging Bullets podcast! The crew of four go over Secret Wars and Convergence, some of their favorite comics and comic related media of this past year, and some things that are older than that but were discovered in 2015. There’s also a decent amount of Star Wars talk to be had, including everyone’s (except for Jim who hasn’t seen it yet) overall impressions of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Plus, random segues into talking about meatloaf the food, Meatloaf the singer, and Fuller House. And, shock of shocks, we mention Fant4stic. It’s a grand old time, I tells ya! WHATISH!
