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.

Following the events of the last issue the Flash finds himself in the void of the Speed Force. Unable to find Iris or the other people plucked out of time, the Flash’s only companion is Turbine, an insane WWII pilot who has been trapped in the void for 70 years.

Once again it’s time to FREAK OUT with Aaron and Alan as they take on the week in comics, the surprisingly fun John Carter, and a little thing called “life”. Listen now for our best of the week and of course whatever it is that’s pissing us off at the moment.

Listen below, save us for later, or get your Freak on via iTunes

The Mob Rule story arc ends, although it looks like the character is going to stick around the New 52, as the Flash is able to stop Darwin Ellis‘ out of control experiment, to solve Mob Rule’s degeneration problem, from exploding and taking an entire Central City block with it.

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.

It’s that time again! Join Aaron, Alan, and Bobby as we mull over the merits (or lackthereof) of Star Wars The Old Republic MMORPG, the timeless appeal of Columbo, and of course the week in comics (powered by the majestic of Hamms, the beer refreshing!).

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.

Many Bothans died to get us this podcast, so you should honor their sacrifice by listening below (or via iTunes)

Freefall, the first story arc of Buffy Season Nine, comes to an end as Buffy Summers squares off against the Siphon. In a trend that has continued through four issues (perhaps as a reverse nod to the Star Trek movie franchise?) the odd-numbered issues have been better than the even-numbered ones.

As you might have guessed, the Freak-Out is taking a break this week to utilize our trademark snark and vinegar in a more traditional manner: Sniping at family as we dig in on our Thanksgiving dinner. But while this was a somewhat light week for comics, I thought I’d go ahead and share my picks o’ the week. So take a break from self-loathing and turkey hangovers to wander through the best comics of the week!

Sweet Jackman’s pecs, it’s Friday! Which means it’s time to traipse through this week’s comic rack with the Four Color Freak-Out gang, as well as a look at the new Batman: Year One animated feature and Ernest Cline’s fabulous “Ready Player One“.

What are you waiting for? Listen now either below or on iTunes! (Or later. Whichever.)
