297 – Red Line Overload

Posted by on Jun 12, 2018 in The World's Greatest Comic Book Podcast™ Hold 322! | 0 comments

This week on the World’s Greatest Comic Book Podcast – it’s the Jeff & Holly show! That’s right! Holly is back! Anthony Bourdain wrote amazing comic books, and you should still read them. Everything is going sideways at DC, Avengers 4 is looming like a Halloween reunion, Val Kilmer is playing The Crow (this is a lie) and Simon Pegg is in Top Gun 2 (also a lie). Netflix loves ladies, Ron Howard wants more Solo (so do I) and the TV Heroes … are totally winning.
