Batman ’66 gets animated feature

Hawkgirl and Rip Hunter join Arrow/Flash spinoff

UFOlogy #1 (of 6)
Authors: James Tynion IV & Noah J. Yuenkel
Artist: Matthew Fox
What’s to Love: James Tynion IV has already blown us away with his original series The Woods and Memetic, and now he’s teaming up with Thrillbent co-writer Noah J. Yuenkel (The House in the Wall) and artist Matthew Fox (Long Walk to Valhalla) to bring us a story about aliens in the Midwest. It’s reminiscent of films like E.T. and Super 8, and TV shows like Twin Peaks and The X-Files.

What It Is: Becky Finch never wanted to be special. She just wanted to be a normal high school student in the small, Midwestern town of Mukawgee. Malcolm Chamber wanted something more. A destiny. An answer from the stars. When Becky is marked by an alien’s touch, she’ll stumble into a mystery she never wanted. A mystery that almost ripped apart both their parents’ lives 12 years ago. She’ll need the help of her eccentric young classmate, Malcolm, as she finds the power within herself to uncover the truth.

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week: Secret Convergence Wars
This week we kick off big events for the Big Two: Convergence #0 arrives on April 01 and runs for the next two months, and May sees Marvel’s big Secret Wars event. Both seem very similar to one another, but I’m going to guess there’s more under the hood than what we have lead to believe. Knowing many readers have allegiances to one company over another, we wonder if that means you are more interested in one even over the other.

  1. Hi guys,

    I stumbled across your podcast whilst looking for izombie reviews. Great podcast, current content, nice clear audio and I love the group banter. Just one suggestion, could you list the contents of the podcast with a start time for the major sections?

    Thanks and keep up the good work.
