Absolute DC Podcast

Join Aaron (@AaronSBell) and Ronnie (@Ronbar316) for a weekly discussion of the DC comics, movies and TV! They go in depth with the story, talking their likes and dislikes, which often leads to some ribbing when their tastes vary. They would love to hear from you at their personal twitter accounts or you can tweet the show directly @DC_Absolute.

Absolute DC Podcast is hosted by Aaron Bell and Ronnie THE Barron and produced by Ronnie THE Barron. You can support this show by visiting our merch store or feel free to get in touch with us via Twitter, @DC_Absolute, by sending us an e-mail.

Absolute DC Podcast has released 138 episodes since launching on Jul 07, 2017

This week Aaron (@AaronSBell) goes it alone, as the holiday weekend and life got in the way of he and Ronnie (@Ronbar316) recording together.  In this abbreviated episode, he goes into the Green Lantern Earth One vol. 1 book, and all the Earth One series, before answering some listener questions.  Some Teen Titans recommendations, the Vertigo relaunch, which 'team' characters would he like to see get a solo book, and more.  Next week hopefully, the boys can get back together to record, since Ronnie will be at C2E2 (or R3D6 as it has become affectionately known) and may have some good scoops - or interviews - for us.

This past week Aaron was a guest on the Valiant Podcast (with sometimes guests of this show Martin and Darrell, as well as Chris and Mike).  If you'd like to give a listen to some Valiant thoughts, you can check the episode out https://taylornetworkofpodcasts.com/2018/03/28/valiant-podcast-ep-55-the-end/

WonderCon was this past weekend, so Aaron (@AaronSBell) and Ronnie (@Ronbar316)get together to go over all of the DC related news that came out of the convention.  They talk about the Adam Glass Teen Titans, they talk about the Bensons taking over Green Arrow (and ending their run on Birds of Prey), they talk about imprint delays, they talk about all the new Justice Leagues (now there are 7!!!).  Most importantly they talk about how incredible the new Justice League Dark is going to be.  They talk a little bit about Aaron's feelings on the first half episode of Krypton, how DC plans releasing event comics, and then settle in for some New Gods movie fan casting.  Basically, it's a typically well focused episode.

In a first, Aaron (@AaronSBell) and Ronnie (@Ronbar316) stick perfectly on topic this week without going on too many tangents.

Of course that's not true.

They do stick mostly on topic, when they remember what that topic is.  They start out talking the new writer announcement everyone has been talking about, before covering the last few issues of Detective Comics.  From there they move on to the DC Black Label books, the Milk Wars, why Ronnie thinks the Signal is terrible, how much of 52 has Aaron caught up on, Gail Simone's Plastic Man announcement, the upcoming Titans show and how the DC streaming service is going to work, Batman Beyond, and Batman Odyssey before going WAY off topic and talking about Toys R Us.  Can you believe they fit this all into an hour?

In case you missed it (or didn't know about it) Ronnie was a guest on the Geek Brunch Podcast the other day to talk about some retro comics. You can find the episode here - https://www.geekbrunchpodcast.com/2018/03/18/geek-brunch-103-retro-ronnie/

And Aaron will be a guest on Comic Talk Today, which releases later today right here on the Nerdy Legion Network of Podcasts.

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.

Don't blame Aaron (@AaronSBell), it was Ronnie (@Ronbar316) who names these episodes.    This week the fellas are all over the place.  There is some talk about the New Age of Heroes title The Terrifics, which was highly anticipated by Aaron.  Does it live up to his own hype?  Then they talk about how Ronnie is finally all caught up on Black Lightning.  There would have been some talk about the recently returned iZombie, but Ronnie dropped the ball and didn't watch the episode yet.  Instead, They take a trip down Gotham lane and talk all about the mid-season premiere of the show.  And finally, they talk about The Daly Show.  How does that relate to DC comics, and why isn't it a typo?  find out at this link, as promised during the episode -
