153 - Defeated By Brain Power - Week of 3/20/19

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Batman, who is celebrating 80 years of publication this month. It goes without saying that Batman has been a very influential character, at times almost single-handedly carrying the load for superhero comics. We talk about his origins, how he's changed and grown, how rarely he cracks a smile, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual funny business, as well as our picks of the week.
Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook & Twitter & the Events tab on our website
What we're up to this week:
Good time had by (almost) all last Saturday at the meetup 🙂; down to more Hellboy in the massive pile
Praise for Teen Titans GO! To The Movies; also Grant Morrison's Klaus series
A second for the Teen Titans flick; saw Captain Marvel, came away entertained but a bit confused and ready to discuss
Picked up some old trades, which were interesting reading

As you can tell, we could go on about Batman forever. The old man's got a lot of fans worldwide, and more than one host this little show 🙂 
And a quick note: Wonder Woman 1984 is currently slated for release at the end of this year (2019). And Metropolis is in Illinois.
And the confusing moment: Ashley A. Woods is the artist for Dismantlers. Ashley Wood drew Zombies vs Robots. Understandable to mix them up, I'd say 😉 
And aah, the joys of recording in four separate and non-professional "studios" - we had some distracting noises (including wind chimes; it was very windy that night) that I couldn't edit out, so apologies for that.
