On this episode of Comic Talk Today, it's the news! Martin talks about the resurrection of Supergirl and her spiffy new costume, the cancellation of Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps and why it will have lasting repercussions for the DC universe, Comixology's Twitch announcement teaser, and of course, Mark Millar's announcement that Magic Order will receive no second printings and whether or not that's a good thing. Plus, the comic predictor!
A new week means it's time for a new Top of the Pile on Comic Talk Today! On this episode, Martin talks about some of his favorite reads from last week's new comic book day including A Walk Through Hell #1, Ether: Copper Golems #1, Flavor #1, New Challengers #1, The Wild Storm #13, and Cable #157. Plus, Martin dives into a listener recommendation and discusses Cul De Sac, a horror anthology book from Australia that he instantly fell in love with. You can pick that up right here.
Unless you completely avoid all comic book news you may have already heard that Batwoman will be coming to the CW Arrowverse this fall on the next crossover event and Martin has some thoughts on this episode of Comic Talk Today! How will current Arrowverse continuity affect the introduction of Gotham City and Batwoman? Is there a way to fit a whole new segment of the DC universe into an already established timeline? The answer may be simpler than you think. Thanks for listening!
