The last epsiode….for season one!
We’re catching up with movies and trailers and have a short look back at the last nine months of producing this podcast.
The last epsiode….for season one!
“The Man” kept us busy over the last couple of weeks so we had a quick talk about what has been on our plates in the last couple of weeks.
First of all, sorry for the soundquality. A big thank you goes out to listener Flo who helped me salvage a functioning epsiode from the wreckage that were curropted .wav-files.
We spent a whole episode talking about what was going on a long time ago in galaxy far far away. Star Wars influenced a lot of people and paved the way for a lot of things we enjoy today.
Of course we go off topic once and talk about Batman/Young Justice.
If you would like to to let us know about your answers to our questions, please get in contact with us. We’d like to do a a segment or episode with your thoughts on the franchise.
The title of this episode was inspired by this Photoset.

We are Niv and Martin, two geeks that love US-comics and the media related to it, but did not grew up in the USA.
Meeting over Tumblr a few years ago, we always considered doing something that expresses our enthusiasm for the matter and finally made a podcast happen.
This is the time for superheroes, with all the movies, TV programs and printed product occupying shelf space at your comic shop – and almost every other shop – we might hit a critical mass soon, and people like ourselves might be tired of talking about their hobbies.
In this epsiode we talk about our expectations of the upcoming superhero movie slate, including:
- Batman vs. Superman
- Captain America: Civil War
- X-Men: Apocalypse
and about a few comics we have been reading:
- Vision (Marvel Comics)
- Shutter (Image Comics)
- Jem & the Holograms (IDW Comics)
- Master Keaton (VIZ Media)
