This week we cover Marvel Comic's Hulk: Gray with #1 fan Kent Wagenschutz! Hulk: Gray is written by Jeph Loeb with art duties by Tim Sale.

We also talk about various presents we give each other, read some listener mail, and talk about The Human Fly by Bill Mantlo from Marvel Comics, Green Lantern by Geoff Johns, and Transformers Vs. G.I. Joe #11 by Tom Barber and Tom Scioli.

Craziness in a car.

On our way to C2E2 in Chicago, we thought it'd be fun to record an episode! In part one, we talk about our hopes & goals at the convention.

 
In part two, we discuss what we actually did at the con, including meeting Chris Claremont & Marguerite Bennett and hanging out with Ted Sikora of Apama, the Undiscovered Animal. 


In part three, we just leave the microphone on & shoot the shit. Marc manages to fit in a quick review of Sword of the Atom from DC Comics, written by Jan Strnand and art by Gil Kane. This episode really captures what it's like to take a road trip with your friends...if your friends love comics.

Let's get biblical.

This week Tim and Marc discuss the classic JLA tale, Tower of Babel!  It was published in 2000 from DC Comics, and written by Mark Waid, with pencilling duties by Howard Porter and Steve Scott.  Ever wonder how Batman would take out his best friends and colleagues?  This story will tell you how! 

We also read some listener mail from Kent Wagenschutz and Dylan Martino, and Marc talks about Milk & Cheese's Other #1, written and drawn by Evan Dorkin, from Slave Labor Graphics.

We were so excited about the Deadpool movie we just had to talk about it!  We dig deep, so if you haven't seen it yet, rush to your theater and watch it!  We'll wait!  ...ready? 

Okay, great. 

How great was Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, T.J. Miller, and Ed Skrein in this movie? The writers nailed all the fourth wall breaking, quick wit of Deadpool for sure too. R-rated superhero movies are a rare thing and we were not left wanting. 

We also talk about Tim's trepidation with his house selling, Detective Comics by Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul, Werewolf by Night #27 by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, Conan #56 by Roy Thomas and John Buscema, a Weird Jack Kirby fact, and letters!

We head boldly into the post Secret Wars Marvel universe by covering The Vision #s 1-4! 

This ennui-filled bit of suburban malaise was written by Tom King, with art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta and colors by Jordie Bellaire.  We have our good friend and Marvel continuity expert Jeff Uppole on the show to help us wade through the mire that is Vision's continuity. 

We also talk about Amazing Forest #1 by Ulises Farinas, Erick Freitas, and a whole slew of artists, Mystery In Space #17, and Vader Down #1 by Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato.

It's Valentine's Day, and to celebrate, we found the most tragic romantic story in comics:  Mad Love!  It's written by Paul Dini and art is by Bruce Timm.  It's the story of how Harley Quinn came to be so infatuated with the Joker, and it was adapted into an episode of Batman: The Animated Series!

Marc also treats us to a special "every 15 episode" intro featuring some of the comics industry's brightest stars!

We wax philosophical about the past year with our awards episode for 2015.  In it, we talk about our favorite writers, artists, book, characters, which usual CNU guest hosts are or are not sleeping until 8PM and/or Watching Talespin, how great a sponsor our unofficial sponsor RC Cola is, how many buttrams it would take to get Tim to read another Convergence mini-series, how Jeremiah Lambert Art will "poo this", if talking about villains from The Walking Dead is appropriate or not, how many times saying the word "banana" will prepare listeners for spoilers, and some more.  Not much more, but some more.
