280 Burning In My Brain

Posted by on Jan 9, 2018 in The World's Greatest Comic Book Podcast™ Hold 322! | 0 comments

This week on the World’s Greatest Comic Book Podcast, JC is in the hospital with consumption, and Holly decided to go work on a fishing trawler in the North Pacific. Hoffman and Thom … who the hell knows?

We start with Stan Lee’s birthday, a cultural icon has passed away, and Warner Brothers’ has a new head of production for the DCMU. Marvel makes creativity sterile, She Hulk is out of order,  and Wolverine was a Canadian. The X-Files, Bright, and Flight of the Conchords make new, and Brad Pitt … is a bastard!
