Okay, so this is the thirteenth episode. No big whoop. But we’re reviewing the books that came out on April 13th. Double-unlucky whammy, right? To our chagrin, the episode also clocks in at an hour and thirteen minutes. All we’re missing is Felicia Hardy. Nonetheless, we persevere and present a brand spanking new episode in which we discuss all things Nick Spencer, Brian Michael Bendis and Superman!
