Check out the All-New ANTiFanboy Podcast
Back in 2006, a group of angry young comic book nerds started a podcast with the focus of highlighting which comics that released that week were the must-read books but as the show grew in popular, it expanded into a show about video games, movies, television, comics, and everything else in between. Just remember one thing: We don't talk. We argue!

Fun Parts

  • Tommy Elliot trying to steal Bruce’s life as a teenager.  Come on CW, you know you want to green-light that.  God damn origin costume explanation though, seriously, you’re killing me guys.  ALSO, why are there gauze bandages in the school bathroom???
  • It wasn’t bad, I liked it, honest, but I will never let this earthquake thing go
More proof of what the ANTiFANBOYS knew already: Bruce vilifies everyone who had a hairstyle he doesn't approve of.

Stupid Parts

  • Stephanie in costume, addressing her father as just that, for all to hear
  • Same old same old, no earthquake mentions.  If I don’t read the word “earthquake” in next week’s issue, I’m dropping the reporting to every two weeks

Paraphrase of The Week

Tim: A lot of things have been happening, including this nanobot plot we’ve barely elaborated on, no more secrets Bruce, who is it that knows so much about us?

Jason Todd: Yeah Bruce, who blew up the building?

Me: The building?!  You mean Jason Bard’s fucking apartment from last issue? Is that really the one thing everyone is thinking about?  He’s still responsible for the beacon issues, you know, the thing that caused the earthquake!

Have I gone insane? Was there really no earthquake? What pictures did I post last week? Was it penciled scratches on cement walls?

Important Parts

  • The Bat-Fam hash it out a little and get explained why Julia’s there. Tim made no mention of the guy he brought from Japan to help him with the nanobots.  I guess he’s working on a solution in someone else’s issue
  • Jason Bard’s wish comes true: Martial Law!
  • Stephanie visits her dad in prison to brag before posting his plans online. Her post gets re-written to announce a 100 000 000$ bounty on her head
  • Dr. Thomas Elliot (Hush) moved Alfred to a new facility to recover, fully awake and still jamming with fear juice.  That’s right, Arkham. Oh, and Joker’s Daughter is his nurse, thankfully no uniform
Please stop sexualizing women by showing skin DC, please!

That terrifying moment where I thought Joker was going to be revealed as Stephanie's dad.
