Sellers Points: Missed and the Maligned - Batman Vs Superman and Justice League Review

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.

It's a PTBN Pop crossover as Jenny and Mirandia of Geek and Sassy join the guys to talk Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! Was it unfairly criticized? Was WB just trying to catch up to Marvel Studios? Why is Superman so moody? Plus, we take a look at the recent release of Justice League and break down where we think things are headed now and folks… it ain’t all good. (Spoiler Alert!) But if you love somewhat-inebriated Ginger Bear rants, you’re in for a very good time.
