Comic Book Bear Podcast Issue #53 - Havok Thanos Del Rio

Posted in comic books, Marvel Comics, New 52, Television, Superman, Comic Book Bears, sci-fi, ODY-C by earth2 on December 9th, 2014

After an extended break, Billy Z, Bryan and Justin are back on the Comic Book Bears mic with nearly two hours of comic book and geek culture talk. Grant Morrison and Frank Quietly's AMAZING Multiversity: Pax Americana is up first in the spotlight! The comic talk continues with the bears boys weighing in ODY-C #1, Matt Fraction, purple nipples, Wonder Woman, AXIS, Thor, Superior Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the original Secret Wars, Mike Zeck, Kraven's ass, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Robert Hack, Action Comics, Superman in the New 52, comic book sales and the back issue market. They then take a non-comic detour to discuss the end of the current season of Doctor Who and the Star Wars Episode 7 teaser trailer. Then they turn on the TV to rap about what is happening on Gotham, Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Flash and Constantine. They wrap up as always with the Woof of the Week.  Word of caution - the boys are little more potty mouthed on this ep than usual for some reason.  And who or what is Havok Thanos Del Rio? Well, you'll just have to listen in to find out!!
