Brock and Nick were both nervously awaiting Wonder Woman’s arrival to the big screen. It’s now here, and it’s good so we can all just pretend that the cinematic DCU just started. Also, because they like to remain topical, Logan gets a quick review. The comic review for this week is Scalped from Vertigo. This week, Brock and Nick review Volume 1 but are going to come back to it again after they’ve both read the rest.

Somewhere within this comic book podcast episode is a conversation about Paper Girls from Brian K. Vaughan and another look at Scurry from Mac Smith. Yes, honestly, there is. That talk is buried somewhere between pizza and root beer floats. Paper Girls is written by Brian K. Vaughan of Saga fame. Saga has certainly been one of the favorite comics for many indie comics lovers. There aren’t any talking TV people, but this book is certainly not short on some outlandish characters.

It’s also by DC and written by Mark Russell who also wrote Prez.

Having covered most of the news they cared about in episode 79, in this episode Brock and Nick blather about random news, origins of Marvel comics and eventually just to annoy each other. They did fit in a review, though. This is another trip in the somewhat way back machine. Before millennials were born is probably “way back” at this point. When looking at the history of comics, though, a story like Concrete by Paul Chadwick is how, what we call, independent comics really started to break into major publishing.

A new episode! Yes! Brock and Nick are still doing this comic book podcast. One thing is to be expected, when summer comes around, Brock will be a little scarce. In the winter, he has all the time in the world. They did bother to review a comic book while catching up on the various geeky news they missed. Evidently, Brock has friends. One of them is also a comic book creator. This week is just a single issue review with Moving Bodies from Chance Wyatt. Brock calls him Chance Oberlander, or told Nick this when he asked. So, Nick...
