Much doom and gloom and all-around depressing stuff the first hour as we wade hip-deep into The Walking Dead volume 14 from Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard (NOTE: If you want to skip ahead, you'll be fine if you jump to the 47:20 minute mark!), after which we elevate with elaboration on Falling Skies, Will Pfeifer and Jill Thompson's excellent Finals under the Vertigo Resurrected banner, Baltimore: The Plague Ships by Mignola and Ben Stenbeck from Dark Horse, the I...Vampire! serial by J.

Overflowing with optimism and enthusiasm, we spend the better part of an hour examining DC's recent announcement of a line-wide reboot with simultaneous day/date digital releases (incorporating our thoughts and hopes on character treatment, storytelling techniques, delivery methods, the influence of Earth One, changes in retail sales, the direct market, Marvel's reaction, possible titles, and a whole mess more), plus, have more than enough time left over for even more on Jeff Parker and Gabriel Hardman's HULK (with a little Planet Red Hulk and Carlo Pagulayan thrown in for good measure), the brilliant comix work of Jason Karns (Fukitor and Satanic Terror), Malignant Man and 28 Days Later from BOOM!, Jason Aaron and Wolverine, William Messner Loebs' Journey: The Adventures of Wolverine McAllister from IDW, Black Panther, The Infinite from Kirkman and Liefeld, Roger Langridge's Snarked! from Kaboom!, and a whole mess more!
