  • Great comics podcast! Around Comics is back-ish
        
    by cptbackfire
    A longtime host of the now defunct podcast Around Comics, Brian Salazar brings his one man take to Comics to our listening ears. Unapologetic and honest, listen to one man pontificate on Comics and rant about other stupid people ranting.

On a very gender nonspecific episode, Sal cracks down on Cage #1 and Batman Beyond: Rebirth #1 and flips the format of #TopoftheStack with talk about Timeless on NBC and Westworld from HBO. We get deep discussion on the nature of storytelling and the ideas of humanity. #NerdRage continues the Cage with Luke Cage being both too black and not black enough, Wonder Woman being queer but not queer enough, and Vampirella being irrelevant but still porny. We finish off with making fun of various panels at NYCC and useless rambling about Paul Poes.
