Chris and Andy catch up on the news about Aliens and Predator moving from Dark Horse to Marvel and what that means not only for the comics but also the future of the movie franchises...and is RoboCop ripe for the pickings? There’s a juicy rumor that the next big MCU/Avengers event will be Secret Wars! How will the Russo Bros. pull it off and will the Fantastic Four and X-Men be involved? Chris goes over the timeline for the release of Star Wars: The HIgh Republic and Andy may get on board with this new sans-Skywalker series. The guys next go into reading and reviews of a ton of books including Doomsday Clock, Wonder Woman/Conan by Gail Simone and several more.
Chris and Andy get right into the September 2020 solicits and some of them may be a bit familiar. The guys also get an email from Billy Hogan of the Superman Fan Podcast, discuss Batman: Devils Advocate, Marvel Masterworks: Howard The Duck Volume 1 (Variant #300, March 2021), why Pippin and Merry had it worse than Frodo and Sam, and what may be the worst solicitation of all time.
In this special episode, Chris and Andy talk about the life of Denny O'Neil, who passed away on June 11 at the age of 81. He was responsible for creating some of the most memorable characters of all time including Ra's al Ghul and storylines of all time including "Hard Traveling Heroes" with Green Lantern and Green Arrow, "The Joker's Five-Way Revenge!" in Batman #251 (Sept. 1973), and introducing Jim Rhodes as Iron Man in Iron Man #170. He is, without question, one of the greatest comic book writers of all time. The guys also talk about EYE OF THE BEHOLDER: The Art of Dungeons & Dragons, Frankenstein Alive, Alive! HC by Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Extended Edition movies, Supergirl: Being Super, Harleen, Wonder Woman/Conan, Wonder Woman Diana Prince Celebrating The 60s Omnibus HC, and Comicbook Confidential.

This show will also be run on the Epic Marvel Podcast.
