Episode 604 - Not Episode 603!

Reviews: Drones #1, The Infinite Loop #1, Kaptara #1

After a long absence, the podcast wife Erica Schultz returns! Jimmy is super tired and says some really dumb things in this episode like calling it Episode 603 when it is clearly 604. Plus, pronouncing Jared Leto's last name wrong even though he realized it later. What a maroon! They chat about the aforementioned Leto's new promo picture as The Joker, how RDJ's publicist wisely pulled him out of annoying interview, quick bits on some of the Convergence spin-offs from DC and Fun Home musical gets 12 nominations! News includes: DC Superhero Girls to launch, Jill Thompson working on Wonder Woman graphic novel, Frank Miller returns to Batman, Stan Lee partners with Peter David and Colleen Doran for his graphic memoir, an all female Transformers is coming, Sony is planning a new animated Spider-Man film, Dragon Ball returns to TV after 20 years and more!

Reviews: The Walking Dead season finale, Aquila #1, Jem and the Holograms #1, Miami Vice Remix #1, Hit 1957 #1

It's the epic 600th episode/10 Year Anniversary recording! As usual, we record our anniversary episodes live at a bar and once again, we were at The Hourglass Tavern (373 w. 46th St) here in NYC. Thanks to Beth, Joss and the staff for taking great care of us all. It was a fun filled night with special guests, a few songs and many a drink. Producer Joe was on hand to take care of all of the tech while Jimmy hosted the grand event. Jimmy chatted with old friend Michael Emerson in a lengthy talk about his career, advice for young actors, fan interactions and more. He also talked to awesome comic book writers Anthony Del Col, Vera Greentea and Erica Schultz. Yes, the podcast wife has lots of great writing gigs going on and coming your way. Alas, a few cancellations over the last week (including some comic artists and actors) but still a great group of guests. Thanks to all! Mad props to guest co-hosts Emily Edwards and Jon Hoche for helping out with news and reviews. And big ups to the CNI Chorus (Rachel Felstein, Erick Pinnick, Emmy Potter, Dana Aber, Amy Wolk and Kristen French) for being so melodic and having fun with us.  News includes: Dark Horse comics is bringing back Barb Wire, the animated The Smurfs reboot gets a release date, X-Men: Apocalypse has cast an actual Asian as Jubilee, Legendary Comics to release a Pacific Rim comic, Fear the Walking Dead is the official name for the spin-off and Maisie Williams will guest star in Doctor Who.
