Hard-Traveling Fanboys Podcast #45: Countdown — Favorite Marvel Comics Stories

Mild-mannered reporters by day, Greg Phillips and Nick Duke share an intense love of comic books that has made them the Hard-Traveling Fanboys. And if there’s anything that fanboys love, it’s debating what book is better than another book or which character is “cooler.”

Enter Countdown, a monthly column where Greg and Nick will give a top five list and debate the merits therein. This month, the boys wax nostalgic about their favorite tales from Marvel Comics as LOVE MONTH concludes. From cosmic epics to personal tragedies, these lists run the gamut. Also, in the Rundown, the topic of Matt Reeves' departure from The Batman is discussed. HOWEVER, in late breaking news after recording, Reeves has now officially signed on to the project. So listen as Greg foolishly talks about his excitement for a potential Ridley Scott film about the Dark Knight.

Sellers Points: Speculators’ Corner - Green Lantern Corps

Welcome to Sellers Points, where long-time friends and comic nerds Russell and Kelley use every episode to tell you about the best in comics and comics adaptations along with their own brand of “award-winning” analysis.

Another first for the show, Speculators’ Corner takes a look at the announced 2020 Green Lantern Corps movie! Well…assuming the DCEU gets that far. They guys break down the rumors, speculate on directors and cast and give one crackpot, hair-brained explanation of how Chris Pine can be both Steve Trevor and Hal Jordan. They even work in a few tidbits of how the story should flow and the most important thing for any DCEU director to remember at this point: balance.
