Dark Roast Comics Podcast

Apr 02 2019 77 mins 1

Hello and welcome to the Dark Roast Comics podcast, co-hosted by Jerry I and Victor Young. We are a couple of comic book enthusiasts who decided to create this podcast dedicated to exploring the deeper meanings of the comics medium, and having a space to appreciate the various crafts that go into a successful comic book. As part of the podcast, we will also be attempting to become coffee connoisseurs, trying a different brew each week while discussing our favourite comic books. We hope you'll join us on our journey.





Epilogue - All good things
Apr 02 2019 104 mins  
Hey everyone! It’s all come to this! Our last episode of Dark Roast Comics Podcast :) This week we spend some time talking and wrapping up conversations on all the ongoing series that we're currently covering on the show. We give our thoughts on all the series so far, and give some predictions on where we think all the series will go in the future. We sincerely hope you enjoy this conversation, and hope that you’ve enjoyed this journey with us as well :) We want to take this time to really thank everyone for coming on this journey with us. A little over a year ago we wanted to create this passion project of ours and share our love of comics with everyone, and we’re very glad to have had the platform to do so through this podcast. We’re glad to have found an audience that was willing to go on this journey with us week in and week out. Whether you’ve been with us from the start, or just discovered us now, we thank you all the same. You guys are the reason we come together every single week to talk comics, and even though this podcast is ending, it doesn’t mean the end! Perhaps in the future we will revisit doing a podcast again, and if that day does arrive, we hope everyone will be willing to come on the ride with us again! We’ve learned so much from doing this podcast, and if we do come back, we promise to come back stronger than ever! Thank you all so much for being with us through this whole journey. Thank you for giving us your precious time and allowing us to be a part of your lives. Thank you. -Jerry and Victor


Episode 52 - And just like the New 52 - Batman #67, Justice League #20, High Level #2, Venom #12
Mar 26 2019 74 mins  
Hey fellow Dark Roast Citizens! This week we breakdown and dive deeper into Knightmare with Batman #67, peel back more layers on the mysteries of Justice League #20, get in some high octane action with High Level #2, and experience heartbreak with Venom #12! But before we talk comics, we got some news for everyone. This episode will be the penultimate episode for our show, which actually kind of works with as it’s episode 52 :D Next week we will have a reflection and predictions episode and it will be the last episode for our show. We both decided that due to the changes that will be coming our way in the near future, we cannot keep up with the weekly scheduling that our show centres on. We decided now would be the best time to bring upon the end of the show. We hope everyone checks back in next week as well. We will have some crazy spicy theories for all the ongoing series we are covering! For our coffee this week we have a brew called Sitio Lavrinha roasted by De Mello Palheta Coffee Roasters. This will be our last week with the guessing game, so let’s see how we close this out! What did you think about this episode? What are your thoughts on the Knightmare arc in Batman? Do you think the future Superman spells trouble? What do you think of the potential retcon in Venom? Let us know what you think! SUBSCRIBE TO THE SHOW!

Episode 51 - Take control of your own life - The Grim Knight #1, Blackbird #6
Mar 19 2019 54 mins  
Hey guys! On this week’s episode we tackle the difference between a change in ideal vs a change in execution in The Batman Who Laughs: The Grim Knight #1 and witness the full transformation in Blackbird #6. But before we talk comics, we talk a bit about the state of the MCU, and discuss a bit about the veteran casts in the Avengers. We’re not quite sure how some of the veterans will end their MCU run, but we’re definitely putting our theories out there! For our coffee this week we have a brew Ardi roasted by Timbertrain Coffee Roasters. I’ll say this about this coffee, there were some surprise flavour notes that we would’ve never guessed. And even after the reveal, we still might not! What did you think about this episode? What do you think about the backstory of The Grim Knight? Do you believe the transformation in Blackbird is justified, or does it spell trouble? Let us know what you think! SUBSCRIBE TO THE SHOW!

You guys! It’s a huge milestone week for us as we finally hit episode 50!

Episode 49 - Life's like energy, man! The Flash #65, Heroes in Crisis #6, Shazam #3, Captain America #8, Daredevil #2, Oliver #2
Mar 05 2019 114 mins  
Greetings! For this week’s episode, we breakdown and discuss all things The Flash #65, Heroes in Crisis #6, Shazam #3, Captain America #8, Daredevil #2, Oliver #2 But before we get into comics, we try and catch up a bit on how our week has been. We kind of go on a huge tangent, so you know, the usual. Victor got himself a new phone, and his Dokkan experience has significantly improved. We also talk a whole lot about stand-up comedy. So, we hope you like stand-up comedy :) Since the new coffee subscription box hasn’t arrived just yet, this week we decided to go out to the local market and pick up some coffee to try! We decided to give a coffee called Guatemala from Irresistibles a try. This is a ground coffee to start, so we’re getting a pretty strong oil aroma from the start. Let’s see how this one turns out! Also, we said in the episode we said the Irresistibles brand is from President’s Choice. Boy were we wrong! It is in fact from Metro. So yes, mistake corrected, phew! What did you think about this episode? What did you think of The Price crossover? Are you any closer to resolving the mystery in Heroes in Crisis? Do you feel sympathetic towards Daredevil?

Feb 26 2019 96 mins  
Wabam! In this week’s episode, Victor and Jerry discuss all things Batman #65, Justice League #18, Guardians of the Galaxy #2, Venom #11, and two brand new series in Sharkey The Bounty Hunter #1 and High Level #1! But before we get into comics, we catch up on the week we’ve been having. We discuss a bit about the Aquaman movie, so if you haven't watched the movie yet, spoilers! It’s pretty minor but if you care about that stuff then check the timestamps below and skip right to the comics segment. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Alfonso Matheus roasted by Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters. Pretty excited about this one as we got some very nice aromas from the beans. We hope the brew comes out just as nice and elegant! What did you think about this episode? Are you enjoying the current Batman and Flash crossover? How do you feel about the new team in Guardians of the Galaxy? Do you like the changes made in Venom? Let us know what you think! SUBSCRIBE TO THE SHOW!

Episode 47 - A whole lotta crazy from the indies! Batman Who Laughs #3, Flash #64, Captain Marvel #2, Blackbird #5, Gideon Falls #11
Feb 19 2019 99 mins  
PLEASE READ! Hey so before we get started, a quick note on Captain Marvel #2's discussion. So the villain's name is Nuclear Man, and he was formerly called Mahkizmo. We got that mixed up initially and ended up calling him Masochist, which is definitely not what Mahkizmo means. Sorry about that! Hey-yo citizens! This week we talk all things Batman Who Laughs #3, Flash #64, Captain Marvel #2, Blackbird #5, and Gideon Falls #11. It’s an amazing week for indie comics, and these issues further cement to us that indie comics are the future of the industry. We feel the creative freedom that comics creators get really help the story shine and allow for many unexpected things to happen, and Blackbird and Gideon Falls are the perfect examples of that. But before we get into comics, we catch up on the week we’ve been having, and it has been dominated by - you guessed it - Dokkan! But this time for good reason! The new Broly movie banner came out for our Global version that we play, and the units are all the hype! We dropped stones after stones to try to get these units. Let’s see how we did! The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Sumava roasted by Rosso Coffee Roasters. At the initial sniff test, there’s a pretty earthy undertone, but we can’t seem to get anything distinct from it. Let’s see how the tasting goes! What did you think about this episode? Do you think Batman made the right choice? Do you agree with our sentiment on Captain Marvel? Are you excited about the future of Blackbird and Gideon Falls? Let us know what you think!

Feb 12 2019 111 mins  
Hey-yo citizens! This week we talk all things Batman #64, Green Lantern #4, Justice League #17, Young Justice #2, Daredevil #1, Die #3. Another long list of comics for the week as we try to cover all grounds! Packs. Full. Of. Jams! But before we get into comics, we catch up on the week we’ve been having, and we yet again talk about the game that we’re both into - Dokkan Battle! We talk about what makes Dokkan fun for us, and how it compares to a lot of other gacha games. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Ethiopia Ardi roasted by Seth Taylor: Coffee By Design. This comes from a new coffee house as we’ve never received anything from Seth Taylor before. We’re always happy to get new coffee from new places! Let’s see how this one turns out!

Episode 45 - Are we somehow polluted? Heroes In Crisis #5, Captain America #7, Justice League Annual #1
Feb 05 2019 72 mins  
Hiya! This week we breakdown Heroes In Crisis #5, Captain America #7, Justice League Annual #1. If you’ve been following the epic of Justice League, then this annual issue is a can’t miss! Lots of reveals in this issue that is sure to have major ramifications in the main title. Usually the annuals are more standalone, but not this one! But before we get into comics, Jerry and Victor talk about their return to playing NBA 2K19 on the PS4. We’ve sort of developed a mini rivalry in the game, with our games coming in way too close of a call. If you ever want to play some games together, let us know! The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Colombia Narino roasted by Fonte Coffee Roaster. This coffee came from Jerry’s cousin Elbert from the States! Thank you for supporting us Elbert! One day we should try and get him on the show with us, and talk comics! What did you think about this episode? Do you buy into the message in Heroes in Crisis?

Episode 44 - Better late than never! Batman #63, Justice League #16, Shazam #2, Guardians of the Galaxy #1, Oliver #1
Jan 30 2019 83 mins  
Better late than never! This week we talk all things Batman #63, Justice League #16, Shazam #2, Oliver #1, and Guardians of the Galaxy #1. We got two brand new #1s this week so it should be a very exciting time to get our hands on some new series. Can’t wait to see what the new Guardians team will do and how the alternate history of Oliver will shape out! But before we get into comics, Jerry and Victor went to watch the Dragon Ball Super Broly movie in theatres, and boy, it was sooo good! If you are a Dragon Ball fan then this is definitely not to be missed! If you are just a fan of action films, this will be right up your alley too! We’re extremely excited about the future of Dragon Ball Super, especially now that Broly is canon in the main universe. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Kenya Gaturiri roasted by Kaito Coffee Roasters. From the get-go the beans already gave off a distinct and unique aroma and, upon brewing, that aroma absolutely accentuated. Join us as we discuss this unique coffee! What did you think about this episode? Can you believe anything happening in Batman? Does the new reveals in Justice League intrigue you?

Episode 43 - Past regrets and futures unknown - Gideon Falls #10, Batman Who Laughs #2, Venom #10
Jan 22 2019 83 mins  
This week, Jerry and Victor sit down to discuss all things Gideon Falls #10, Batman Who Laughs #2, and Venom #10. A much quieter week in terms of our pull list for the show compared to the previous two weeks. But to be fair, those were catch up weeks from the holidays, so a quieter week is a welcome change. However, even if the number is smaller, still lots to talk about as we hit some critical moments in these stories! But before we get into comics, Jerry talks about his new obsession with a certain anime while Victor continues to tear through Netflix movies. We then veer into another TV show and kind of get off track. And then we talk about a whole bunch of other things. Oh and more Dragon Ball stuff! The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Pangoa roasted by Propeller Coffee Co. Jerry seems to always have trouble with pronouncing the name. Perhaps Victor should take over on pronouncing and introducing the coffee. What did you think about this episode? What did you think about the reveal in Gideon Falls?

Episode 41 - A brand new year! Batman #61, Justice League #14, Cold Spots #5, Gideon Falls #9, Captain America #6, Heroes in Crisis #4, Stranger Things #4
Jan 08 2019 99 mins  
We’re back! It’s 2019, and it’s our first official episode of the new year! Wooo! This is now officially (unofficially) Legacy episode 41! We would like to wish everyone a happy new year, and we hope you will enjoy what’s we’ve got in store for 2019. We got some big things planned for the podcast, so hopefully those would all come to fruition. But before we get into comics, we both talk about what we’ve been doing over the holidays. There’s quite a bit of stuff, so it might be best to just leave that to the episode. We will say, it does get quite nerdy. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called De Dios roasted by Drumroaster Coffee. From the first taste, we’ve got a good feeling about this one. Can this start our new year strong? Will this be the first time where we go 3/3 (or however many notes are in this coffee) on our guesses?! What did you think about this episode? Do you like the current direction of Batman? How about Justice League? Do you agree with our analysis of Heroes in Crisis and Captain America? Let us know what you think! SUBSCRIBE TO THE SHOW!

Episode 38 - Of Crisis and Hope - Heroes in Crisis #3, Aquaman #42, Aquaman Justice League Drowned Earth #1, Stranger Things #3
Dec 04 2018 92 mins  
Citizens of Dark Roast City! In this episode, we talk all about hope. Hope in different capacities, different situations. We explore this theme as we discuss Heroes in Crisis #3, Aquaman #42, Aquaman Justice League Drowned Earth #1, and Stranger Things #3 But before we get into comics, Jerry talks about his time playing Destiny 2. He’s been playing a lot of Destiny. This probably might be a recurring topic. Victor is very excited about Gogeta Blue showing up in Dragon Ball Super Broly movie. It's odd that they decided to spoil that already, but oh well. We're happy for it! The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is a mystery coffee roasted by Elysian Coffee Roasters. Upon first sniff, this coffee already promises to be amazing. Apparently we’re also tasked to guess the region that this coffee came from. So let’s see how we do! What did you think about this episode? Does the crisis in Heroes in Crisis appear to be external or internal? Does the end of the Drowned Earth saga satisfy or leave you with more questions? What do you think about the reveal in Stranger Things? Let us know what you think! SUBSCRIBE TO THE SHOW!

Nov 27 2018 92 mins  
Citizens of Dark Roast City! In this episode, we get an epic confrontation in Batman #59, a turn of the tide (heh heh) in Justice League #12, a rebirth of sorts in Web of Venom: Carnage Born #1, and some crazy revelations in Cold Spots #4. But before we get into comics, we spend quite some time talking about Destiny 2, because the game is amazing, and you should all play it. Do you play Destiny 2 (on the pc)? Let us know! We should all play together. Jerry is very hooked. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Las Brisas roasted by Propeller Coffee Co. We’re pretty excited for this as all the coffee we’ve received from Propeller has been very smooth. This could be another one of those super smooth weeks. What did you think about this episode? Do you believe Bane? Does the Justice League have what it takes to fight back? Will Cletus wreck carnage (heh heh heh) across the Marvel U? Who’s that big bad in Cold Spots?

Nov 06 2018 104 mins  
Hello fellow Dark Roast Citizens! In this episode, we go all-in DC with the ongoing mystery in Heroes in Crisis #2, the ever expanding havoc in Justice League Aquaman Drowned Earth #1 (what a mouthful), and a series of incredible shorts in Batman Secret Files #1. But before we get into comics, Victor talks about how he is binging this one show on Netflix. He’s really enjoying this series. Very funny apparently. Listen to the episode to find out which show! Jerry has been getting into anime recently, but he’s now caught up on this one show he’s watching (also on Netflix!), and now he’s sad. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Three Sisters roasted by Kicking Horse Coffee. Smooth. Savoury. Seductive. These are the words describing this coffee. Let’s see if it lives up to those! What did you think about this episode? Do you now have a better idea who dun it in Heroes In Crisis?

Oct 30 2018 80 mins  
Greetings Dark Roast Citizens! In this episode, we deep dive (heh heh) into some Drowned Earth tie-ins with Aquaman #41 and Titans #28! We also get some much needed change of pace in Cold Spots #3! But before we get into comics, Victor breaks the news to us that….he had a falling out with...Dokkan Battle. He goes into great detail about the fall out and what it feels like. It’s all quite an emotional ride. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Golden Mandheling roasted by Ping Huang Coffee. A nice little coffee we received from a friend of ours in Taiwan.

Greetings Dark Roast Citizens! This week, we deep dive further into the mythology of Venom #7 and journey further into Cap’s quest to redeem himself in Captain America #4. A short episode this week as we only have two books to discuss! But before we get into comics, we catch up on the busy week we had leading up to this episode. Victor has been busy all week preparing for his friend’s wedding as a groomsmen, and Jerry, well, he played a bunch of video games. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Alex Reynoso roasted by Bows & Arrows Coffee Roasters.

Greetings Dark Roast Citizens! Coming up in this episode we dive into the determination of Batman #56, a clash of ideals in Justice League #9, and the brand new magical world of Blackbird #1. But before we get into comics, we talk a bit about the upcoming NBA season. We’re both huge basketball fans, so we give a bit of thoughts on what we might be able to expect with the new season, especially with teams that got some upgrade over the summer. We also just celebrated our Canadian Thanksgiving over the weekend, so happy Thanksgiving to everyone! The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Buena Vista roasted by Rosso Coffee Roasters.

Greetings Dark Roast Citizens! This week we tackle the eerie Cold Spots #2, dive back into the world of the upside down in Stranger Things #1, and enter a brand new crisis in Heroes in Crisis #1. But before we get into all that, Victor teases us with something he’s got for Darkseid right from the get-go. Jerry’s watched it as well, and he is totally on board.

Sep 25 2018 104 mins  
Greetings Dark Roast Citizens! We’ve got a YUGE episode this week as we try to cover all the big books hitting the stands. This week we tackle the dynamic duo in Batman #55, an epilogue of sorts in Justice League #8, the climactic clash between Eddie Brock and Knull in Venom #6, and a brand new take on the Batman/Joker dynamic in Batman Damned #1. But before we get into all that, it turns out both Victor and Jerry watched a bunch of things with John Krasinski in it. It’s good to see that he’s getting much more serious roles these last few years. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Rio Brilhante Canario roasted by Kittel Coffee. Jerry screwed up introducing the coffee before the comics as well as the reveal segment, so, we apologize for that. Looks like Jerry really needed that coffee! What did you think about this episode? Did you enjoy the finale of Venom’s first arc? Did Batman #55 pique your interest in the upcoming Heroes in Crisis event? Did Batman Damned #1 start DC Black Label on the right foot for you?

Sep 18 2018 81 mins  
We’re back, Dark Roast Citizens! It’s Jerry and Victor here trying our best to catch up on all the sweet comics we’ve missed. We tackle Batman #54 and the relationship between Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. We see the end of the Totality arc with Justice League #7. We deep dive into the politics of Captain America #3. And finally, we cap (heh) it off with a space wide trek through Fantastic Four #2! But before we get into all that, it’s been a few weeks, so we spend some time catching up. Jerry went to the Fan Expo that happened in Toronto, and got to meet lots of writers and artists! He also completely forgot to upload those pictures on Instagram. So...perhaps he’ll upload them all at some point. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Katia Duke roasted by Cut Coffee here in Toronto, Canada. This is one of four variations of the Katia Duke coffee. If you have tried the other three variations, let us know! We want to know what those are like! What did you think about this episode? Did the finale of Justice League’s first arc meet your expectations? Are you excited about the more political aspects of Captain America?

It’s Jerry and Victor here talking all things Venom #5 and the new Image series Cold Spots #1. We talk about the sweet new toys Venom gets, and how the characterization of Venom and Eddie Brock has evolved throughout the series. We then shift gears to talk about the eeriness of the new psychological/horror/mystery/suspense story in Cold Spots. Before we talk comics, we spend some time talking about Jerry’s new phone (excited). That pretty much occupied all his time. Victor is catching up on Brooklyn Nine Nine on Netflix. We’re very glad NBC picked up the show in no time after the cancellation! The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is a medium dark roast from Bean Head Specialty Coffee. They’re from our area in Toronto, Canada, and we think everyone should check them out! What did you think about this episode? Does Venom have you all hyped up like us?! How do you feel about the evolving relationship between Eddie Brock and Venom? Are you captivated by the setting and mood of Cold Spots? Send us an email or tweet at us to let us know your thoughts! Also! We'll be taking a quick two weeks break! We're taking some time off as the Fan Expo is coming to Toronto and also taking some time to take care of personal things.

Aug 21 2018 82 mins  
SUBSCRIBE TO THE SHOW! Join our Facebook group at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/182907015663575/ Hey everyone! In this episode, we discuss Justice League #6, Batman #53, and Gideon Falls #6. That’s right! For the first time we cover three books in an episode! We wanted to bring the best comic book content to you, and share some more analysis with you, so we decided to try to analyze and discuss more books each episode. As a result, we have decided to include the coffee content within the comics segment. Let us know what you think of the change! But before we get into comics, we catch on the week we had. Victor has been playing a lot of Dokkan Battle, but he’s fairly upset this week as he tried to summon more characters and ended up getting “shafted”. He says this a lot in the episode. Jerry is recovering from a sickness. So, kind of a boring week for him. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Shakisso roasted by De Mello Palheta Coffee Roasters. This is the first time we wrapped the coffee segment around the comics segment, so now we’ll have more time to taste the coffee before making our educated guesses. Did we do better? We’ll see! What did you think about this episode? Are you just as excited as we are about the reveal at the end of Justice League #6? Do you agree with our theory on Gideon Falls #6?

SUBSCRIBE TO THE SHOW! Join our Facebook group at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/182907015663575/ Hey everyone! This week we discuss Batman issues 51 and 52 and Fantastic Four issue 1! We went through our list of books that we were following and covering, and decided that we wanted to keep Batman on our list and didn’t want to fall that far behind. So, this week we decided to combine issues 51 and 52 in the discussion, as we feel the themes from the two issues go hand-in-hand and very much depicts two sides of the coin. But before we get into comics, we catch on the week we had. The 3rd anniversary event in Dokkan battle is finally coming to an end, so moving forward we promise (maybe) to talk about Dokkan a little bit less. Jerry has been feeling under the weather lately, so please excuse all the coughs and sniffles in this episode! The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Los Alpes roasted by Monigram Coffee Roasters out in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. The roasters aren’t very far from where we are here in Toronto, so maybe one day we’ll make the drive out to visit them! What did you think about this episode?

On Justice League, we relax a bit from the breakneck pace of Justice League as we’re given a nice character issue for Lex Luthor, learning about his motives some more. Captain America shows us some more of Cap’s internal struggles on being a man out of time and touch from the rest of the people. But before we get into comics, we talk about our week a bit. Jerry spent a lot of time this past weekend playing video games, while Victor spent some time enjoying the downtown Toronto scene. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Francisco Caraza roasted by Anchored Coffee! We believe this is the first time we received coffee from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, so we’re pretty excited about what’s to come. What did you think about this episode?

But before we get into comics, we breakdown some of the news and trailers that came out of SDCC! The DCEU hasn’t been doing very well these last few years, but we feel that they’re about to turn the tide! Aquaman and Shazam both look very promising! The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called the Komodo Dragon Blend, and it’s from Starbucks! We know a guy at Starbucks, so we scored ourselves some Starbucks to brew. We also take this time to kind of talk about the origin of our podcast name, and something a little embarrassing. We’ll just leave it at that. What did you think about this episode?

We talk at length about a common theme that we found with these books, and the implications it has not just with these comics, but with the very concept itself. We talk about the idea of faith and belief, and the validity for these ideas as it pertains to evidence and experience. But before we tap into the well of faith and belief, we talk a bit about the game Victor mentioned last week, Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle! Needless to say, Jerry started playing it and yup, he’s hooked. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Clementina Ocupa roasted by Bows & Arrows Coffee Roasters.

This week we break down Venom issue 2 and take a dive into the super weird and magical with The Magic Order issue 1 from Image Comics and...Netflix?! There’s lots to talk about with these two books. Venom looks to continue the momentum set from the first issue, and The Magic Order sets history as the first comic book published by the streaming giant Netflix! But before we enter what is essentially adult Hogwarts, we take a look back at the craziness that is E3! Lots of awesome games were on full display at E3, and we can’t wait to talk about them! We go into a few games that we are excited about, but perhaps we should just do an episode discussing all the awesomeness that came out of E3! The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Ana Sora roasted by Pilot Coffee Roasters. I’m not very confident this week on the flavour notes, as our initial sniff test doesn’t seem to be hitting anything we’re accustomed to. Did we guess right? I don’t know! Come find out!

But before we turn the knob and enter the Hall, we’ve got a few weeks of random things to catch up on! Victor went to Anime North and Jerry went to Niagara Falls Comic Con at the beginning of the month. Perhaps next time, we go to the same con!

We discuss what these events mean for the future of DC Comics, and which stories we are looking forward to the most. And boy, we are excited for what’s to come! But before we go into all the happy and the positives of upcoming DC stories, we take a moment to feel a little sad about our team the Toronto Raptors. Boy, they are having a rough time right now. It’s so bad, LeBronto is a thing. Ya, let’s leave it at that. The coffee we’ll be brewing this week is called Inga Aponte roasted by De Mello Palheta Coffee Roasters.

SUBSCRIBE TO THE SHOW! Join our Facebook group at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/182907015663575/ SPOILER NOTE: In order to talk about The Batman Who Laughs in-depth, we needed to create context for why some of the themes we discussed are heavy in nature. Therefore, the comic segment starts off pretty spoilery for about 15 minutes. If you have not read the book, you should totally read it! But if you’re going to listen to this before reading, please skip ahead roughly 15 minutes or so once you’re at the comics segment. In this episode, Jerry and Victor spend some time talking about the hype that is the Infinity War trailer! We then go to the other big two publisher and analyze and discuss the book The Batman Who Laughs. We’ve been looking forward to this episode for a while, so hope you’ll enjoy our conversation on what we think about the themes covered in the book. We cover themes such as the morality of killing, moral freedom, and the moral agents’ power. What would happen if Batman finally did the unthinkable?! For our coffee this week, we have Burundi Ngozi brewed by Propeller Coffee Co. There are some interesting tasting notes this week, and we struggle pretty mightily throughout the tasting process. It’s okay though, we’ll bounce back! ANOTHER NOTE: We noticed there were a few quick hiccups in the recording. Turns out it's from our raw files, so unfortunately we could not fix it. It's very minor and not really noticeable. Hope you enjoy the episode!
