Aaron's 20 Questions

On this week's episode, Ronnie (@Ronbar316) sits Aaron (@AaronSBell) down to ask him 20 DC related questions.  What does he cover? Well, you're going to have to listen to the episode yourself to find out.  Why, you ask?  Because this episode was recorded almost a full year ago.  Honestly, I don't remember anything that was asked or answered, so it may be a complete train wreck.  But it was recorded for a week such as this, where schedules wouldn't align to record something new.  Listen to many timely references talking about everything that was cool in October of 2017!  Maybe?  Honestly, I've got no idea.

He Smells Kinda Fishy

Nick and Martin are back and boy is there a lot to discuss! Nick catches Martin up on his wife's birthday shenanigans before Martin tries to sell Nick on why he should get DC Universe (hint: it has something to do with Jerry Lewis and Jimmy Olsen). Then, the boys go into TV show as they discuss Iron Fist season 2 and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan...don't worry, Nick hasn't seen either so there's no spoilers ahead. Plus, Bon Appetit is the best YouTube channel and Martin is a nerd with too much time on his hands. 

Surprise, Pitches!

Dennis and Cullen talk about bowling, staying alive in the comic book industry, bake-offs, and more!

This Means Gwar! With Matt Miner

Can you believe it's been 100 episodes? Me neither! Joining Martin on this momentous occasion is writer and editor Matt Miner whom you may know from such projects as This Nightmare Kills Fascists, and All We Ever Wanted: Stories of a Better World. Matt has a new book out from Waxwork Comics called Poser, a slasher horror story set within the punk rock scene of California that Martin really loved. The two talk about all these projects plus, the merits of Kickstarter, their shared love of anthologies, the evolution of the punk rock scene over the years and more!

Double The Pleasure, Double The Fun

Ronnie and Martin return for the second episode of the week to catch up on all the latest releases from Aftershock Comics. In this episode, the boys discuss Volition #2, Hot Lunch Special #2, and Moth and Whisper #1! 

Jinx, You Owe Me A Coke

On this week's episode, Aaron (@AaronSBell) and Ronnie (@Ronbar316) catch up on the last few issues of Damage.  How do they hold up to what's happened before?  Does the Annual maintain the high level the recent Annuals have been on?  This conversation leads to a brief discussion on the rest of the New Age of Heroes books, and which books they just haven't cared enough to keep up with.  Here's a hint, it's the same books for both of them.  The go over the finale of the Batman/Deathstroke arc in the continually fantastic Deathstroke series.  This leads into some thoughts on Damian and Red Hood.  Also, is there a possible Red Hood appearance coming in either the DCEU or the Arrowverse (or i suppose the new DC Universe service)?  Ronnie reveals that he has never read Sandman, which somehow doesn't surprise Aaron.  And finally, they end up getting into the first four Jinxworld books.  Without spoiling that conversation, they both liked all four, but their rankings are wildly different.

Feel free to send in any comments or questions to us @DC_Absolute or AbsoluteDCPodcast@gmail.com
