It's a new week and a new installment of Top of the Pile as Martin dives into his favorite books from last week. This week on the docket is Volition #1 from Aftershock Comics, The Terminator: Sector War #1 from Dark Horse, Ice Cream Man #6 from Image Comics, Edge of Spider-Geddon #1 and Extermination #1 from Marvel Comics and finally, Pearl #1, The Wild Storm #16 and Batman #53 from DC Comics. Which book will be the pick of the week and which books will have Martin diving into some esoteric tangents? Tune in and find out!

It's time for another therapy session as Ronnie Barron from a multitude of podcasts joins Martin for Therapy Thursday! In this episode, Ronnie and Martin go a bit deeper into the Rebirth/Metal discussion, why Marvel is doing things right with their "fresh start", how instant gratification is ruining media, plus, what will the comic industry will look like in ten years. Then, Martin tests Ronnie's Marvel knowledge in a game he dubs, Are You A True Believer? 
In today's episode of Comic Talk Today, Martin pulls another rant out of his hat, this time, about his con experience this past weekend, why some vendors just shouldn't bother showing up, and how you can find the right places to buy books. But first, listener feedback to yesterday's episode on the death of DC Rebirth! Finally, we round out the episode with Comic Predictor, in which Martin finds a selection of books coming out on new comic book day which you should consider picking up.
Comic Talk Today is back with a new episode in a series Martin is calling, The Rant. For this first rant, Martin tackles the question, is DC Rebirth dead? With the recent Justice League announcements, Martin revisits some thoughts that have been floating around his head about the move away from the premise of Rebirth and how Dark Knights Metal is the new direction of the DC universe. What has happened to Geoff Johns? Is Snyder the new creative mind for DC? All this and more, on Comic Talk Today!
In today's episode of Comic Talk Today, Martin brings you a brief part of the DC Publishers Panel from WonderCon 2018. Much of the information we got from the panel was information we already had about DC Zoom, INK, Black Label, and the Sandman Universe, but Scott Snyder came on the panel to discuss the future of the Justice League post Metal and No Justice and how that will affect the core team, the spinoff titles, the Titans and more. Let us know what you think about the new information!
It was a great comic book reading week so it's time for another edition of Top Of The Pile in which Martin discusses some of his favorite reads of this past week. First up, Martin briefly recaps last week's picks and whether he enjoyed them before moving on to a surprisingly heavy Marvel reading week in which he gushes about Dept. H #24, Ninja-K #5, Babyteeth #9, Cable #155 and The Mighty Thor #705. Plus, a surprise bonus pick!
