Lots of news this ep as we talk the proudest moment of the Disney Plus launch, the future of the DC streaming service and Henry Cavill's future with Superman. Then we get unusually grumpy in reviews, and go on a Comics Kontiki Tour... maybe?

We’re not locked in here with you. You’re locked in here with us. Unless you just don’t bother downloading. But then you’ll miss us talking all things Watchmen, from the original comic through prequels, sequels, movie and now the TV series.

We make an early call this episode that it will be a weird one, and we're pretty sure we don't let you down. Blame It On Rio, love song dedications, the Jeremy Irons poll, an All-Media Show & Tell... and we talk about some comics along the way too, including a preview of Warren Ellis & Bryan Hitch's new Batman book!

This episode is all about mistakes. We own up to our role in Spiderman leaving the MCU and DC Comics killing Alfred Pennyworth. And Larry Boxshall makes a factual error that may ruin his credibility for ever. The heat is on.

The episode so entertaining we did it twice! Even the computer eating our first attempt at this show couldn't stop us from doing it all over again to review Jonathan Hickman's new X-era, and discuss Marvel's Phase 4 announcements, Eisner winners, and the next Tom King / Mitch Gerads joint.

The death of Vertigo came too late to talk about this episode. Instead we spend our time discussing a 30 year old Batman movie and nearly 30 year old X-Men series which still obsess pop culture. We’ll leave you to decide whether those two facts are connected.
