Behind The Panels Issue 132 – Starlight

Behind The Panels Issue 132 – StarlightWelcome to Behind The Panels 132, the comic book show that tried to dance with the devil in the pale moonlight, but kept stepping on his toes.

In this issue, Chris Pratt is nominated for Best Shirtless Performance by MTV. The bar has been set high for our next live show. ALSO Warner Bros. CEO says DC films are ‘edgier’ than Marvel. We guess that’s why we keep getting cut by them. THEN it’s Saga in What We’ve Been Reading. Oh, and some new books from Jeff Lemire, Warren Ellis, Jimmy Palmiotti and Brian Michael Bendis as well.

PLUS our Kick-Ass Pick of the Week: STARLIGHT (Image Comics) by Mark Millar and Goran Parlov. This is BEHIND THE PANELS.

Your Hosts: Richard Gray, David McVay and Dave Longo
