From the past! Hold your shorts for a flashback to Issue #42!

This week on Hold 322… It’s the end of the month, and you know what that means, Marvel and DC give us an “end of the month dump”! From DC: the Comedian goes to Viet Nam; National Comics features a character from one of their top competitors in the Golden Age; All Star Western was great last month… this month, not so much; I, Vampire is readable for once, I’m sure that won’t last long; and is Justice League Dark retconning Neil Gaiman? Isn’t that sacrilege?

From Marvel: Ultimate Captain America returns to the pages of The Ultimates, and everything seems to fall into place again, but 616 Cap is back to being emo-Steve. Thor ends the “Night-Mare” saga and it’s just as weird as the entire arc has been. The Secret Avengers discover a hole in the middle of New York City that villains hang out in, but nobody seems to have done anything about. The Red Hulk says Cyclops is going to lose AvX... You heard your prediction right here, folks!

All this, and someone returns from the dead… Face front, true believers! It’s Hold 322!

Captain America works for Hydra? Is that all you got?

Posted by on May 27, 2016 in Hey Fanboy!, JC's Jocularity | 1 comment

Meanwhile at DC, we got a one-shot… DC Universe Rebirth. $2.99 for 80 pages of HOLY SHIT (Cap was $4.99 for a standard 32-page comic). So what’s so damned special about Rebirth? Well, I’ll tell you…


Flashpoint is explained (putting the season finale for The Flash into perspective). Also, the New 52 is explained, or at least what happened. Whose hand is that? Oh, just you wait…


Johnny Thunder (as a very old man) is looking for the Justice Society.


The Legion of Superheroes are back.


The Atom found the Microverse? Copyright infringement lawsuits are pending, I imagine…


Ted Kord is back and slowly turning himself into the Blue Beetle, while trying to help Jaime Reyes remove the scarab (that turns Jaime into the current Blue Beetle). Oh, and Doctor Fate shows up and drops this little nugget:


And Ted’s just as delighted about that information as we all are.


The Aqualad made popular on the cartoon series, “Young Justice” is back. And evidently gay and has a religious mom.


Wonder Woman has a twin brother named Jason, and Darkseid is reborn and out to find him.


Aquaman proposed to Mera.


Wally West, the original Kid Flash, and later the Flash, is back!

Oh, but I hear you, you really like Keiynan Lonsdale on the Flash TV series and wonder if having a red-headed white kid might be too confusing for fans of the TV show… That’s cool, DC’s got your back:


It’s a little silly, and obviously pandering, but I’ll give it to them.




AAAAAAND that explains whose hand that was…


So, Captain America said “Hail Hyrda” on the last page of his comic book, while DC fixed all the stuff they broke with their half-assed New 52 concept. Sure. “Hail Hydra.” What else you got?

217 – Talk to the Floating Hand

This week on The World’s Greatest Comic Book Podcast™: We have an Opera Review™ from our very own McTenor, for Captain America: Civil War. Margot Robbie has pitched a “DC Girls” movie to Warner Bros. Paramount is dropping the Axanar lawsuit. And Channing Tatum says they’re still making a Gambit movie. Kevin Smith has set his sights on Arrow. With Supergirl moving to CW there’s a mega-crossover already planned. Will Nathan Fillion be the next Star Trek captain? And CBS said a new Nancy Drew series is “skewed too female.” In comics, we’ve got adventure in Future Quest, and drama in Civil War II.

All this and the return of Battlestar Galactica! Face front, true believers! It’s The World’s Greatest Comic Book Podcast!
