Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 61: I’ve Got A (Killing) Joke For You

Eric is back just as Jim hurts his.  Yep, Jim has to record the podcast lying down, but the guys shake off the blues and get down to talking…about a pretty crappy week of books.  The big issue this week was the Killing Joke and Batgirl #49.  Jim hijacks Reggie’s Recklessness and the podcast is back to a length the bloodsuckers will like.  Enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 60: Eric Shea’s (Sort of) Day Off

 

Eric was sick as a dog, but instead of taking the week off, Jim forced him to get out of bed and record the podcast…sort of. With the help of Reggie, they recorded an abridged version of the podcast with reviews of Batman and Robin Eternal #21, Justice League #48, Superman: The Coming of the Supermen #1, Superman/Wonder Woman #26 and Superman #49.  While that doesn’t seem like a lot, it still was almost 4 hours long!  Enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 57: Who Else Seen Da Leprechaun Say Yeah!

It was a down week for books and after getting yelled out all week about review scores, Jim was pretty depressed.  That means one thing…The Mobile Leprechaun.  Yes, nothing brings a smile to Jim and Eric’s face quicker than a little, “Who Else Seen Da Leprechaun Say Yeah!”  It carries them through this long ass episode where they break down all the books, talk DC Comics news, get yelled at in the listener mail and try to have a good time.  Enjoy!

They talk all of the DC Comics that came out this week (including Poison Ivy with guest, Reggie), discuss the news and more. If they aren’t the #hardestworkingguysinpodcasting, they are the stupidest. Enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 52: Stolen Valor

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 52: Stolen Valor

Jim and Eric celebrate the New Year (and one year of podcasting) with their usual comics talk, stories and utter nonsense.  Eric went to a New Year’s Eve party, but Jim takes a walk down memory lane as he recounts some past New Years of his own.  It’s all about Y2K and stolen valor.  He still doesn’t understand how it happened, but Eric rips into him all the same.  The two finally get into this week’s DC Comic Books, but make sure they offend everyone with their Indian rain dances and nonsense.  It’s another long one for the #hardestworkingguysinpodcasting…enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 51: Not So Christmas Cheer

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 51: Not So Christmas Cheer

Jim and Eric get together the day after Christmas and they are not in a jolly mood.  Maybe they didn’t get the presents they wanted or they are still reeling from last week’s “Dildo Incident”, but they certainly don’t agree much.  Eric gives a sort of update on Stinky Jamie and Jim just wants to end it all.  They do manage to talk about a ton of books and continue being the #hardestworkingguysinpodcasting.  Enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 50: What a Dildo!

It’s Star Wars weekend so Jim and Eric talk…DC Comics.  Yep, they stick with their mission statement and talk about every DC Comics comic book that came out this week.  The podcast may be filled with Superman, Batman, and the Justice League, but Eric’s girlfriend steals the show with her podcast debut and it’s a doozy.  In fact, it literally took Jim’s breath (and ability to speak) away.  We all hope that Eric is still alive and that you all enjoy the show.
