In this issue, DC Comics doesn’t have a major event planned for September. The lenticular cover industry stock plummets in reaction. ALSO Mark Ruffalo’s not sure whether he’s in Captain America: Civil War or not. Meanwhile, Jeremy Renner’s still not sure whether he was in the first Avengers or not. THEN it’s new issues of Black Canary, Dr. Fate, Prez, Thors, Southern Bastards and more in What We’ve Been Reading.
PLUS our Kick-Ass Pick of the Week: BATMAN: EARTH ONE VOLUME 2 by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank. This is BEHIND THE PANELS
Your Hosts: Richard Gray, David McVay & Dave Longo
