Tiny Review
Bryan sits down with his son, and together they review the first issue of DC’s Tiny Titans. While Jackson likes it, he’s not sure he would spend his allowance on a subscription, but it was fun to read. Stephen and Bryan then have a discussion on comics for kids and why the current run of Justice League Unlimited doesn’t work for younger readers.

Review: The Foundation

Bryan and Stephen love The Foundation from Boom! Studios – Rodrigo not so much. There is just enough mystery and intrigue in the first two issues, that they will continue to read the rest of the series. Stephen and Bryan award high marks, but Rodrigo’s critique brings the overall rating down to 3 out of 5 stars.

Question of the Week
If you had to choose one of the following super powers, which would it be?
a) Flight
b) Super Speed
c) Super Strength
d) Invulnerability

Trade Paperback Review: Left on Mission
Written by Chip Mosher
Drawn by Francesco Francavilla
Colored by Martin Thomas
The panel had nothing but good things to say about the five issue mini-series from Boom! Studios. From the art to the story telling, this issue rates as a strong read by all. Don’t go into Left on Mission thinking this is going to be your typical James Bond story – it’s much better!
Rodrigo, Bryan, and Stephen give the trade paperback 4 out of 5 stars.

This turned into the Boom! Studios episode as Bryan also gave a mini review of Second Wave, and says that if these are the kinds of stories coming from Boom! Studios, this is a company to watch.
