JD and Len aka The BatTribble return with a thick bag of listener email full of platitudes and attitude before digging into the SOLO trailer, the Silent Age of Heroes @ DC Comics and the Super Bowl.
The binding of comic books leads our Talkers down the path of the morally ambiguous, the deadly miscreants of the paneled square - THE ANTI-HERO! Why are they STILL popular - nostalgia or the times in which we live?
Black Lightning REVIEWED! Emails ANSWERED! Comic Book Collecting REMEMBERED! The Gutters ALL TALKED OUT! Featuring a special comic book convo from the hosts of the Micheaux Mission podcast.
JD and Len review their favorite movies from 2017. They didn't see everything in 2017. They didn't half of what hit screens in 2017 but of what they did see, they choose their favorites. Not the best; their FAVORITES! Remember that before you judge.
STAR WARS The Last Jedi has dropped and, days after doing reviews of the film on the Tribbles and Cult Pop feeds, Len and JD come together to reexamine Episode VIII - with help from one faithful listener named NG - and come out the other side with a 'hmmmm!' Plus, the big questions the Black Panther movie poses for geekdom.
E-mails and convo lead JD and the BatTribble down the rabbit hole of Thanos, Daredevil, graphic novels v trade paperbacks, X-Men, Saga and much more.
JD and Len welcome Kira, Rachel and Liz into the Gutter for Justice League chatter, glory day returns, movie trailer avoidance tactics and the depths of skullduggery in the sneaking-food-into-the-movies game!
Len and JD are back at the Complex with tales of Lady Monks, magic peanuts, a wishlist for DC-bound Brian Michael Bendis and a questionnaire review of the new Justice League movie. Enjoy!
JD and The BatTribble debate the rationale of a Black Cat movie, rave Tom Hardy, read emails and tell childhood comic book stories of crime. Then Len totally rewrites the way comic books should be published!
JD and Len are back with emails, casting news about a new movie starring Venom (?) and amalgamating horror movies with comic books...but you'll stay tuned for Detective Naked.
Foil Covers. Variant Covers. WHY? Mr. Dinkins creates one awesome band and JD lets loose the social justice warrior we all knows he longs to be!
A real rocking superhero band could bleed all over the Hero Complex and JD and Len would never notice because IT happened!
The BatTribble and Johnny Destructo grouse over Marvel's Secret Empire, bridges too far, Optimus Prime's wings and much more!
JD and Len welcome Randy aka R-Son back into the Complex just in time to meet the Crooked X Hill LIZ and drop panels of jewels on streaming networks, SnotGirl, artists doing good looking things, Battle Chasers and which Marvel chick is ready for those Wonder Woman hands.
JD and Len answer emails from their curvier fanbase, dangerously BLINK in the face of WHO and use Disney's impending Netflix exodus as astepping stone to talk about comic book story adaptations good and bad.
EXPLICIT - JD and Len are hot - very hot - under the collar about Twitter Trolls on the move again against innocent women inncoently enjoyinga likely very decadent couple of milkshakes and they let the four letter words fly! Throw the headphones on the kiddies and put Steven Universe on 10.
What are the FIVE tenets of Geekdom? What gems make up the Geekfinity Gauntlet? What the hell are Len and JD talking about? It's all just GUTTER TALK to me :-)
We return to the Gutter to talk about Spiderman Homecoming, Daddy Butlers, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Steve Urkel, a new Doctor Who, Apes, Capes and all kinds of shapes and the early morning comic book run (apparently its a thing!)
Let's hear it for the DADS, big and small, short and tall, the good ones, the bad ones, from Luke Cage to Darkseid, from Reed Richards to Batman, raising little rich boys, giving away escape artists - we cover them all! Plus convo about comic books mags, the age-old 'waiting for the trade' debate and more.
The Gutter reopens with a flood of emails, a Wonder Woman review, knock-off action figures, miscast movies and Adam West remembered.
