That’s right, folks! It’s a second consecutive week with a Freak-Out! It’s almost like a big comic book movie is set to come out or something! Oh, wait…there is, and Amazing Spider-Man is really, really good! Our long-lost pal Bobby Bierley returns to the fray to help us cover a week in comics, Amazing Spider-Man, Safety Not Guaranteed, and a whole mess o’ trades. Also: Bobby’s near death encounter with the gypsies of Lawrence, KS!

Yes, I made a Robbie Williams joke in the title. No, I’m not ashamed.

Fired up on burgers and vodka, the boys take on this week in comics (and why we’re so in love with Mark Waid right now), DC’s new logo, the horrors of Rob Liefeld, and the wonder and glory of Ninjasaur, which you should go help fund via Kickstarter RIGHT THIS INSTANT.

Listen now or whenever you feel like it on iTunes!

And be sure to hit up the dadsbigplan Facebook page for some context around Bobby’s mind-boggling cap.

After a week off, we’re back for 2 weeks of comic-goodness! There’s a whole mess of great this week, and what could possibly be better than listen to two rambling fools tackle the pulls of the week?

But wait! There’s more! Aaron and Alan tackle Tintin, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, as well as weigh in on the trailer for a particular bat-themed vigilante.

Like total chumps we overlooked the release of Atomic Robo: The Ghost of Station X #4 (probably because the Cap’n & I are sad our dearest holiday wish for Atomic Robo figures has yet to see fruition), but holy crap: this is one of the best comics going this season, and if you’re not reading it you should be ashamed of yourself.
