The Podwits are introspective this week, looking to the future of their beloved genre offerings and striving to see if they will ever truly find genre [...]

Today the comics world has lost another one of its pioneers. Carmine Infantino has passed away at age 87. As a DC Comics fan, Infantino’s influence is impossible to overstate. During his tenure at DC, the Brooklyn native was responsible for creating one of the founding members of the Justice League of America… the Silver [...]

On the Podwits Podcast, we don’t examine the greater mysteries of life, the universe and everything. Mainly because the computer that we were using for such things was destroyed to make way for a hyperspace bypass, but we digress. Instead, we look at the bigger picture of pop culture; where our movies are going and [...]

Brian is back from the doctor’s, and boy is he piping mad! (Who knew he had a crew of trolls to dig him out of snowmageddon?!) With Brian tipsy off of Scottish ale, J and Dion jockey positions in settling the old boy down as he rants about the incredibly stupid Games Workshop’s attempt to [...]

This edition of “The Comic Spinner” is guest-written by the Podwits’ own J. Marcus. Please feel free to forward all your complaints to him! With all the on-and-on I have been doing this past year on Podwits.com, Brian has been kind enough to ask me to answer a simple question regarding my favorite comic book [...]

Brian’s back, and that means comics will be talked about, beer will be drunk on-mic, and Dion’s in big trouble for the whole trunk of a Dodge Monaco thing. But it’s all forgiveness, kumbaya, and (of course) nerd talk galore on this latest Podwits Podcast. Enjoy!

OK… actually, no it didn’t. No more than George Lucas did. What DC did do, however, was give false hope and then completely piss all over everything I ever knew and loved about DC Comics.

This week the lads regroup after Dion’s trip to 1974 and discuss cartoon characters in their various incarnations from comic strip to small screen, and then try to discern, for the layman, the many (and questionable) reboots of the Marvel and DC worlds, while at the same time trying to keep their own sanity. Earth [...]

With Dion under deep cover, J and Brian are back on the mic, digging into the realities (such as they are) of Warner Bros. rumored Justice League movie, the possibilities of convention-going, and the thank-Goddities of the long-lost non-existent sequel to E.T. We’re getting our verbal hijinks on!

Real life conspired to delay my gratification, but yesterday, ten days after its nationwide American release, I finally saw The Avengers. By now, reams* have been written about how good the movie is, how thoroughly it entertains on multiple levels thanks to its snappy Whedonesque dialogue, its insightful Whedonesque explorations of character relationships, and its [...]
