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!
