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.
