DC4U #19: Swamp Thing (2019) Pilot

October 16, 2019

Something is rotten in the North CaroliAHEM... I mean, Louisiana swamp. DC Universe's short-lived Swamp Thing series was everything fans of the classic Alan Moore run could ask for in a show and then some. Russell and Todd take a look at the first episode and discuss why Warner Bros. pulled the plug on such a promising new horror series.

DC4U Episode 18: Animal Man #1 (New 52)

October 10, 2019

DC4U's journey into darkness continues as Russell and Todd pick up the critically-acclaimed Animal Man #1 by Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman. While it may start off like a superhero tale, things quickly turn twisted as Buddy Baker, aka Animal Man, experiences visions of death and decay seemingly caused by his own child. But that's nothing compared to what he sees when he wakes up. You'll never be comfortable in your own skin again.

DC4U #17: Top DC Horror Stories/Constantine (the Motion Picture)

October 2, 2019

There are lots of dark and foreboding corners of the DC Universe (and we don't just mean the DCEU). All month, Todd and Russell are looking at some of the best horror stories DC Comics has to offer. First up, the guys pick their favorite scary comics from across the spectrum of DC's publishing line. From spine-tingling jump-scares to deeply disturbing explorations of evil, these are the best books to pick up this Halloween season! After the break, Russell and Todd revisit the mixed bag that is the Keanu Reeves 'Constantine' film.

DC4U #15: The Flash (1990) Pilot Episode review

DC4U #15: The Flash (1990) Pilot Episode review

September 18, 2019

Flash Fact: Suits developed by Russians for deep sea exploration make for great speedster uniforms... for some reason. This and the many uses of fast-forwarding footage are discussed as Russell and Todd revisit the 1990 pilot episode of The Flash! John Wesley Shipp stars as Barry Allen, aka The Flash, in this short-lived series that, for better or worse, was some of the best (see only) superhero television at the time. Does this have more in common with The Flash or Tim Burton's Batman from a year earlier? Well... they both have Danny Elfman music! 

 

 

DC4U #14: The Flash #123: Flash of Two Worlds!

DC4U #14: The Flash #123: Flash of Two Worlds!

September 12, 2019

Flash Fact: Russell and Todd are not the biggest Silver Age Flash fans. But some comics are classics for a reason. The Flash #123 was full of all the things we love as fans. Two iconic heroes meeting for the first time and teaming up against some big-name villains. Fast-paced action and dialogue. Performing tricks at super-speed for children. Talking dogs. Ropes that lead to other dimensions. The usual stuff.

But they can't do it alone, so PTBNers Ben Morse and Greg Phillips jump into the race with them. Flash Fact: You don't wanna miss this one!
