Comic Nerds Unite: Comic Book Podcast

In a celebration of the life of amazing comic creator Darwyn Cooke, we tackle his magnum opus, DC: The New Frontier.  The book is so great, so dense, so all-encompassing, that we actually only cover the first half in this two hour episode.  We also read some listener feedback, talk about how adorable Kent is, and expound all the wonders and triumphs of DC's greatest team, the Challengers of the Unknown.

Tim's eldest daughter Lexi loves Supergirl.  Supergirl has a popular TV show.  It only seemed natural to combine these two things and do a Supergirl TV show episode with Lexi!  We dive into the show in general, its characters and memorable episodes, and we specifically talk about the season finale "Better Angels" as a Watching Assignment.  We also discuss Superman/Batman #19 by Jeph Loeb and Ian Churchill, and Supergirl #s 9-15 by Joe Kelly and Ian Churchill.

This week's episode is brought to you by children with good memories.

A Marc-eting genius at CNU thought it would be good to hop on the Captain America: Civil War hype train and do the Civil War series. 

Choose a side, listeners!  This week, in honor of the new Captain America film, we tackle the Marvel event of 2006, Civil War!  We talk about Amazing Spider-man #529-531 by J. Michael Stracyznski, the main Civil War series, by Mark Millar, Steve McNiven, and Dexter Vines, the mysterious Illuminati and we talk about the impact Civil War had on the Marvel landscape back in 2006 and beyond.

Marvel's Civil War (2006) starred Captain America, Tony Stark (Iron Man), Spider-man, and all the other Marvel superheroes squaring off to support or oppose a Super-powered Registration Act. 

Miscrediting Brian Michael Bendis is this week's unofficial sponsor.
