Hey howdy, buckaroos! Welcome to The Book Report #85, Crave Online's comic book podcast action, with your hosts Andy Hunsaker and Iann Robinson. It's our first podcast of 2012, so we've got a lot to catch up on before the Mayans eat our livers or whatever.
Here, we discuss DC's "New Wave" of the New 52, and the old wave that got cancelled because of it – not to mention Rob Liefeld's inexplicable windfall of good fortune, taking over three more old wave books after his got the axe. But the Justice Society is returning in Earth 2! Cause for rejoicing! Then, we blitz through a two-week backlog of Yays and Nays, such as The Lone Ranger #1 and The Goon #37, to get to this week's books, which include Green Lantern, Amazing Spider-Man, Batman and Robin, The Shade, Battle Scars, Resurrection Man, Batwoman, The Incredible Hulk, Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, Batgirl, Black Panther, Scarlet Spider #1, Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E., Captain America, Lobster Johnson and the funniest Marvel book in ages, X-Club. Seriously, buy X-Club so we can get more X-Club.
