Return Of The Podfather?

On this week's episode of the Absolute DC Podcast (@DC_Absolute) Darrel Taylor (@TheVoice123) of the Taylor Network joins Aaron (@AaronSBell) and Ronnie (@Ronbar316) to talk all sort of things DC.  They start off talking about Black Lightning and New Age of Heroes before losing all track of reality.  From there they move on to discuss such topics as the DC characters feeling like themselves no matter who was writing them, Tom King convention sketch ideas and the many times he's killed off Darrell in a book, Wonder Woman 2 casting news, the upcoming Joker origin movie, and internet fandom before landing on some listener questions.

This week Ronnie (@Ronbar316) answers a fan question about the new Ragman series, while Aaron (@AaronSBell) goes on a bit of a rant about what may be his new favorite DC title. Then the two of them dive deep into another listener question about character revamps. Which they've liked and which they've been a little iffy on. I know you all may find this difficult to believe, but Aaron may have had a few more dislikes than likes (even though they are all justifiably terrible).

This week Aaron (@AaronSBell) and Ronnie (@Ronbar316) went in a bit of a different direction. They decided to talk about some of their favorite Halloween themed comics. In all actuality, only one of the books they talk about has anything to do with Halloween, they're mostly just some DC horror stories. Once they finish covering those books, they answer some questions from their super awesome and 100% truthful friend Nick (who also had a terrific idea for a future episode that the boys discuss very briefly).

Aaron and Ronnie spend a little time talking all things Dark Knights - Metal. They talk the series so far, the one shots, and the Gotham City Resistance tie ins. Want to know which of the new Batmans they prefer? It may or may not have come up, I'm honestly having a hard time remembering. Where does all this Metal talk lead? To a tangent where they talk about the Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow season premieres. There is also some talk about The Wild Storm which will surely infuriate their friends, until Aaron regains his ability to remember anything.

NYCC was this past weekend, and with it came a LOT of DC announcements. Aaron (@AaronSBell) and Ronnie (@Ronbar316) do their best to go over all the big news. From the upcoming Flash War to what's coming for Batman after Metal wraps up. From animated Constantine to Constantine coming to tv in Legends of Tomorrow. Action Comics 1000 to Wonder Woman Earth One vol 2. The 10th Anniversary of the DC Animated Universe and the 25th Anniversary of the Vertigo Imprint. And of course, the Doomsday Clock.

This week, Aaron (@AaronSBell) and Ronnie (@Ronbar316) decided to have a chat about one of their favorite books - Teen Titans. Not just the current run, but ALL things Titans, going back to their childhoods. They talk favorite and least favorite members, which storylines were their favorite, how they got into the Titans, etc. They even answer some listener questions not about the Teen Titans, THAT'S how committed they are!
