Hey howdy, buckaroos! Welcome to The Book Report Podcast #82, featuring Crave Online Comics Editor Andy Hunsaker, TV Editor Blair Marnell and Monkey In The Wrench Iann Robinson.
This time around, we're paying tribute to the late, great Jerry Robinson – the man who created the Joker – and talking about Marvel's big announcement of 2012's Avengers vs. X-Men event, as well as Brian Michael Bendis' declaring that he's leaving Avengers once it's done. Blair's also got some stuff to say about The Walking Dead TV show. We'll also run down this week's comics, natch, featuring Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Venom, Action Comics, Penguin: Pain and Prejudice, Batwing, Villains For Hire, Red Hulk, X-Club, Thor: The Deviants Saga, Voltron, Punisher, Avenging Spider-Man, Detective Comics and the premiere issue of Matt Fraction's The Defenders, which sets Iann off on a rant of epic proportions. Seriously, even if you liked it, it's a tour de force of nerd rage you must behold.
