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!
For our 99th episode, we read the digital-only series “Ame-Comi” by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. Inspired by a series of statuettes, the comic creates an alternate DC Universe where all the superheroes are women. The result is an incredibly interesting commentary on comics today. We also take a good chunk of time for an in-depth discussion of the digital comics experience. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.atomicpoweredsupercast.com!
