DC Noise Episode 60: Halloween Episode (But Not Really)

It’s the Halloween episode of DC noise. Although not really because Eric and Mike did not plan ahead and so we don’t have a Halloween themed episode at all. But that’s a nice change of pace after all those other podcasts had Halloween episodes, right? Anyway, before we get into the show we have a voice message from our friend Chuck Loridans. He gives us some very compelling reasons why we should all love Elastigirl of the Doom Patrol. Giant, hot girl in a miniskirt? What’s not to love?

Our regular discussion of comics this week includes Gotham City Sirens #4, Batman #691, Superman Secret Origins #1, Action Comics #882, Last Days of Animal Man #5, Justice Society of America #31 and Power Girl #5.

We also go on an off topic tangent about horror movies there toward the end. It is Halloween after all. But our friend Micah saved you all with a couple of on topic voicemails about the Blackest Night tie-ins and Justice League: Cry for Justice, which seems to have gotten us back on track. So we wrap things up with a little discussion of North 40.

JUUUSTIIICE!!!
