We return the favor after many an appearance on his Back to the Bins podcast, as Chris, Shane, Murd and Ian are joined by longtime friend and fellow podcaster, Paul Spataro! After starting with some comic news, including James Gunn becoming head of DC Studios, the casting of Disney+'s Wonder Man and the upcoming Vision Quest, and the Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania trailer, the crew go on to review in spoilery detail Dwayne Johnson's superhero spotlight and DC's latest film, Black Adam. From there, topics include Ian's trip to Boston and pilgrimage to Newbury Comics, Pop Star Assasins: Of Suspicious Minds, Shane and Chris go Blue and Gold, Paul reminisces on John Buscema and his time on Silver Surfer, DC Universe Infinite gets closer to day and date, Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths continues, Human Target continues to hit the target, Gotham City: Year One, some Bronze Age Marvel Monster action in the Tomb of Dracula and The Monster of Frankenstein, thanks to Werewolf by Night's influence on Chris and Murd, Back Issue 139 and the Not-Ready-For Prime-Time Marvel Heroes, Chip Zdarsky's Batman, Two Morrow's Team-Up Companion, Murd gives time to Eamonn Clarke's latest editorial project, Drawn Under the Influence (DUI) issue 2, Paul gives his non-spoiler thoughts on the Disney+ She-Hulk series, and more! Plus some quick Shane World of Toys time, and a Muddle to Murd to boot. Finally, Ian gives some time to bid a fond farewell to the late, great Carlos Pacheco, who passed away the day this episode was being edited; the comics world will miss him immensely. (2:22:29)
