The History of Bad Ideas Podcast, Ep. 132–Nickel’s Dragon!

It’s a very special episode of HOBI as Jason invites Graphic Novice host, Nickel, into the BOB Studios to talk everything geeky including the never-ending world building in Preacher, the demons of Outcast and why the Secret Life of Pets is a wonderful date movie for Canadians! Nickel tries to catch Jason up on what’s happening in comic books but even he is confused why Iron Man is a child now and the guys guess the box office for Ghostbusters.  The guys don’t have a Top 5 but they do give preliminary reviews of all the upcoming summer films and even have time for a Bad Idea of the Week!

DC Comics is bringing us three big Rebirth changes this week with the return of Hal Jordan, the return of Nightwing to his home, and a new Chinese…Superman? DC is still rolling out their changes and we get to see some new and old characters hit the stands this week!

Conan is back in his very own series this week from Dark Horse comics. On his own, trying to survive…who or what will be his next target.

From Image Comic, we learn that survival isn’t only a human instinct! This exciting series takes the planetary invasion idea and turns it on its head! What if there was a planet trying to survive…from humans?

Civil War 2 continues and expands this week into several titles such as Civil War II #3, Civil War II Amazing Spider-Man #2, Civil War II Choosing Sides #2, Civil War II Gods Of War #2, Agents Of Shield #7, Deadpool #15, New Avengers #13, and Power Man And Iron Fist #6. And there’s more to come!

Tons of our favorites hit the shelves this week and we can’t wait to get our hands on Action Comics #959, Harrow County #14, Wonder Woman #2, Detective Comics #936, Birthright #17, and Old Man Logan #8!

Don’t miss our Question of the Week! It’s time to reevaluate some things and we want to know what’s changed for you!
