To the batpoles, people! This one goes ALL the way down through the bottom of the barrel that is New 52 Week 4. Kick Ass makes us hate life, and we’re a bit gobsmacked that Aquaman brought the most fun to an otherwise really depressing week in comics. Join alphamonkey and the Cap’n for a traipse through the broken dreams of our soggy pull box!

No time for love, Doctah Jones!

Awwwwww, yeah! It’s DC’s New 52: Part Deux! We relieve the horror of Torchwood’s finale, and sing the praises of last week’s Doctor Who. Also: Thor still kicks ass (and Chris Hemsworth is mega-dreamy). Find out what sucked and what ruled this week in comics, or listen just to hear alphamonkey consider Green Lantern #1 one of the best of the week!

C’mon, it’s not like you’re going to get any work done today… Listen below or via iTunes

Yup, our much beloved Secret Six came to its too-soon conclusion on Wednesday, and of course we had to commiserate. Well, that and talking about the week in comics, Superman and Dark Knight Rises stills, the great racist crisis of the new Ultimate Spider-Man, and scorched earth Twitter warfare. Join Aaron, Alan, and Bobby for a very special (ie long*) version of the Four Color Freak-Out!

*It was actually 3 and a half hours uncut, but we decided 90 minutes of Alan sobbing was a bit much to bear.

It’s finally here! Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters today, and we’ve asked our pal Trevan McGee from Lawrence.com to chime in with Aaron, Alan, Bobby, and Ian as we review the super-hero film a certain monkey has been a’waiting for all Summer. Short version: Holy crap, go see it! Also on deck: Torchwood: Miracle Day! Captain America #1, Avengers #15, Power Girl #26, the bloody mess that is Flashpoint! Bonus: Alan tries to convince us to read Darkwing Duck, and the unexpected joys of concession line conversation. What are you waiting for? It’s Four Color Freak-Out Episode 8!

Awwwwwwww, yeah! Our pal Nick Mundy from Team Tiger Awesome joined The Cap’n, Bobby, Ian, and myself for a very train-wreck special edition of the Four Color Freak-Out, Episode 6: Attack of the Straps! (Aka “Holding the line at an hour 59″) in which we discuss Transformers 3, what’s wrong with Steven Spielberg, new trailers for Captain America and MI:4, debate the merits of “Hard Target” vs “Time Cop”, and of course manage to talk, complain, rage, and joke about the last couple o’ weeks in comics. Join us, won’t you?

Super 8! DC’s big reboot! Doctor Who’s mid-season finale! How in pasta’s name did we ever think we’d be able to record a quick 30 minute mini-episode? Well, obviously we’re a bit stupid because when you put myself, the Cap’n, and our pal Eric Melin in a room together things are going to get a little talky. Also insult-y. And possibly huggy.

So give a listen while we take down (and build back up) Super 8, commiserate and bellyache over the impending DC reboot, and giggle with glee over Stephen Moffat’s masterful fan-buggering ala “A Good Man Goes to War”.

Highlights include: Predictions on how hard the Cap’n will be crying after Green Lantern, and discussion around Captain America sodomizing dead hobos on screen.

Yes indeed, true (and not-so-true) believers. It’s another edition of the Four Color Freakout, and this time around Mr Sparkle (aka Ian McFarland) joins us to talk about the unexpected goodness that is X-Men: First Class (and why you must, must, must see what is easily the best true X-Men film to date), along with our reactions to DC’s announcement that it’s rebooting the DCU at the end of Flashpoint. Plus the Cap’n tries to make me cry by blowing the ending to Fear Itself #3.

Get your listenin’ shoes on and spend some time with three nerdy guys in a room with microphones already!

Super thanks to Eric Melin and the boys of Ultimate Fakebook for giving us the go-ahead to use the amazing “Popscotch Party Rock” as our de-facto theme song. If you dig it (and like all right thinking people, you will) by all means look ‘em up on iTunes, Amazon, etc.
