Frankenstein: Agent of SHADE #9

Hey howdy, buckeroos! After a week off to revel in our two-part 100th episode extravaganza featuring Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott and Batman writer Scott Snyder (go listen to those!), Andy Hunsaker and Iann Robinson are back in the saddle for the first of the next 100 Book Reports! Crave Online's funnybook podcast is off and running again!

This week, we go into the hype around Marvel's upcoming gay marriage and DC's upcoming gay character, and Iann changes his tune about The Dark Knight Rises.  But we focus mostly on comics themselves, going over a big batch of releases from the last couple weeks, including Iann's conversion to Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. Avengers vs. X-Men, Batman Incorporated, Astonishing X-Men #50, Justice League Dark, Aquaman, Amazing Spider-Man, Secret Avengers, Fantastic Four, Winter Soldier, Captain America, Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, and the unabashed misery that is the current state of The Incredible Hulk.
