House to Astonish

Don't worry, you haven't downloaded the wrong show - Al and Paul are taking a short detour into the world of comic book-influenced wrestling promotion Chikara Pro, catching up with commentator (and fellow comics podcaster) Leonard F Chikarason about Chikara's upcoming UK tour, its new base of operations at the Wrestle Factory, its current Grand Champion Princess KimberLee and lots more besides. If you're just here for comics and not up for wrestling chat, feel free to skip and come back in a few weeks, when Paul and Al will be back to their regularly (un)scheduled broadcast.

It's been a big few weeks for comics news, so Paul and Al are running through the DC Rebirth announcements, the Image Expo presentation, Gerard Way's new DC imprint, the sale of CBR to Valnet, the (very) minor trinkets of Marvel news from the past couple of weeks and a little bit of chat about Batman v Superman along with reviews of The Fix and Black Panther. Battle not with monsters, lest you become a monster, and if you gaze into the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, the Official Handbook of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe gazes also.
