Cape Town Community Podcast: Ep. 017 “Superman Hearts America Again”

ep 17 - title card

Originally published on May 15, 2011.

After an absence of DC books in last week’s episode, we found several titles that we wanted to discuss from the publisher. While we didn’t agree on the quality of all the books, we couldn’t be happier with this week’s Bat-books. You might think that the biggest surprise of the week was the last page of Flashpoint, but no—it was Superman’s re-allegiance with the U.S. of A.
