Episode 30: This episode: We introduce a new segment called “Speeding Bullets? that we would love feedback on.  We also review Martian Manhunter 1-3, Trials of Shazam 1-3, and 52 weeks 25 and 26. Also included are the usual, fantastic, email and forum comments.

NOTE: Next week’s show will also be a late Wednesday night release due to our attending the CGS #200 Episode.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: I took out our spoiler free summaries because they were almost identical to our reviews without the depth.  The big problem with this is that it makes listeners sit through the same segment again. Please post in the forum or email us with your thoughts on this. If there is enough demand, we will rework the spoiler free summary concept.

FINAL NOTE: We had a bit of a sound quality issue this episode. (A Slight feedback that we weren’t aware of until the end of recording. We will take care of this for next week.)
