Mike, Paul, and René revisit a topic from episode 131 to discuss the “pride and shame” of their comic collections and in doing so end up down a rabbit hole or two about the pitfalls of being a comic collector.
Paul and Mike are joined by Dr. Travis Smith, Professor of Political Theory at Concordia in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and author of the book Superhero Ethics!
A decade of movies based on comic books. Mike is joined by Brian and Rene for just, so so much. Enjoy.
What’s up with DC only really talking about Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman? Paul, Kara, and Brian talk about DC’s super trinity!
Brian and Kait join Mike this week to talk about romantic relationships in comic books. Rogue & Gambit, Scott Free & Big Barda, Invincible & Atom Eve, and so much more. What makes a good relationship in a comic story?
While Mike was away in the desert of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Nick, René and Kara dive into one of the monoliths of comic books: Spider-Man. Why love him? What’s to like? What even IS Spider-Man?
This episode was recorded on May 6th, 2018 and sometime in the past! Our show this week is an odd one as we had a strange technical glitch half-way through. For the first half, Brian and Kate join Mike to talk about their comic picks and books they’ve been reading. For the second half of the show, Tia and René have an in-depth discussion about the villians of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s an odd format, but it’s exciting!

This week’s episode was recorded on March 6th, 2016. Host Mike Rapin is joined by Tia Vasiliou and Brian Murray to chat comics (their picks for the week: All-New Wolverine #6, Insexts #4, and Spider-Gwen #6) and super hero costumes–who has the best, the most iconic, and the cosplayability of most super hero costumes.
