Posted by on Feb 13, 2018 in The World's Greatest Comic Book Podcast™ Hold 322! | 0 comments

This week on The World’s Greatest Comic Book Podcast™: A Firefly Book Series starts this fall. A $500 PC and an AI did better at hiding Henry Cavill’s mustache than the effects team. Comixology is improving your subscription. James Mangold doesn’t want Logan described as “High-Octane.” On TV: Nichelle Nichols gets a Drunk History, Jennifer Salke has been named head of Amazon Studios. Elizabeth Olsen gets a dramadey on Facebook. In comics we’ve got Charles from the Nerd Store telling us what’s hot, and Bobby D tells you what’s not.

All this and Warner Bros World! Face front, true believers! It’s The World’s Greatest Comic Book Podcast™!

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!
