Episode 019: Ball Robots That You Harm Your Friends With

IT’S OVER! It’s the end of the DC Onesplosion! Whew! Finally…. ANYway, Ben and Zack are at it again and they didn't edit a thing. Those slippery sidewindin’ so-and-sos! They’re wrapping up the month of DC #1s, Zack gets angered by numerology, why it’s not a good idea to tell fans that the character they like sucks, baggage, the significance of Tim Burton’s Batman in this month’s Batman #1, assault by lemonade, many mini-comics, undead ladies, trying to understand things in context, Mark Twain’s miraculous adventures in the 20th century!, the difference between Bakuman and Bakugan, what’s appropriate in children’s television, and we’re very tired. Chip! Chip!
