    This is the most Vertigo-y title released by Vertigo in a while – very small seeds planted in early issues…

    July 17, 2017 8:38 am RE: "books about people on the ground in the superhero universe": I read Alias around the same time I read Gotham Central and saw a lot of similarities between them. It's easy to overlook, what with Jessica Jones being superpowered (and of course, not a much bigger character), but from what I remember a lot of it was just smaller detective-y stories that happened to maybe have a superhero-adjacent element.
    April 3, 2017 9:05 am I've not been paying as much attention lately, so I was only 70% sure you guys weren't making those DC/Hanna Barbera crossovers up as I listened. But then I went and read that Snagglepuss backup. Holy shit. 10/10.
    January 16, 2017 7:06 am On a scale of 1-10, where 1 is Electro and 10 is a different thing, this was a great episode. Thanks guys!
    November 17, 2016 4:29 am I was fortunate enough to see a screening of this a wee while back and I LOVED it, I was giggling the whole way through. You guys mentioned the Batman 89 line ("You wanna get nuts?"), which was followed up shortly after by a Dark Knight Returns line (the one about the operating table...and I'm the surgeon). I was kind of amazed by that, the fact that they were able to comment on the way Batman got "dark" in the mainstream after this TV series, within the context of the movie. At first, when Aunt Harriet hinted that she knew Dick and Bruce had a secret, I was a little worried it was going to turn into some kind of world-breaking fever dream (a "modern" Batman hallucinating this crazy 60s world, something like that.) Especially when Batman saw the three different Catwoman actresses. Glad they didn't go that way, allowing for some meta commentary on Batman as a whole without destroying the pure joy of this particular interpretation. Great show guys!
    August 10, 2016 4:41 am I'm only half way through the podcast so far, but I thought I'd follow up on Mikes point about them making this film to do well in China - while you may be right, you made a good point, it looks like the film might not even be released there: So if that was their intention, it fell flat on its face...!
    May 17, 2016 5:40 am Regarding the BvS podcast: I can't speak for the guys obviously, but I've always assumed their aim was entertainment first, criticism second. Which is not to say they aren't excellent critics (they are!), but in this case, it made for a very fun podcast episode! As someone who also hated BvS, I'd even say it was cathartic in a way, a nice release of energy. And to the iFanboys themselves: Thank you for introducing me to Darwyn's work many years ago. It's been important to me since. Hope you guys are doing okay.
    March 14, 2016 5:35 am It's funny you mentioned the "Superman dressed as Batman" thing - I recently rewatched an episode of Superman: TAS where Batman is missing and Superman dresses up as Bats to take his place, with Robin trying to sort of steer him in the right direction. Fun concept!
    January 25, 2016 5:45 am DARYL. Holy shit, I did NOT expect that. My heart skipped a beat as soon as I realised it was him.
    August 31, 2015 4:04 am Congratulations on 500 episodes, guys! I've been listening since 2007ish and haven't missed a week. Thank you for all the episodes!
    May 18, 2015 4:47 am After hearing it mentioned on here, I went back to find that "gorilla with a machine gun" episode. It was the best! THEN AGAIN this episode made me laugh too, with "Don't be patting yourself on the back different Dave." Great episode!
