Our Video Game Comics series wraps up with “Injustice: Gods Among Us.” This comic, written by Tom Taylor with art from Jheremy Raapack, sets the stage for DC’s one-on-one fighting game. The story creates an alternate universe where Batman can face off against Wonder Woman and the Flash can fight Superman. But is that even really necessary? Do we need a whole comic book series to set up a video game? Maybe not, but we’re pleasantly surprised by the outcome here. Strap on your headphones for a listen while we take you to the Quiver and punch some people really far away. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
Our Morrison vs. Miller arc wraps up with Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Strikes Again.” In this story, we return to the word created in “The Dark Knight Returns,” three years after the faked death of Bruce Wayne. This time, Bruce sets out to bring back all the other heroes and take on their tyrannical, oppressive government — a government so insidious that the news is given to you naked and superchix musicians in spandex lead a rebellion. If that sounds wacky, that’s because it is. I get the feeling that this comic will live on in infamy. For more information on past for future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
it’s Miller Time in our “Batman: Morrison vs. Miller” series as we read the seminal “Dark Knight Returns” by Frank Miller. This beast of a comic creation ages Bruce Wayne to his latter years after a 10 year sabbatical from the Batman. We talk about the changes the villains undergo, the debate on whether Batman should have even returned, and Beef Supre– err, I mean President Camacho.
