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.

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