Jerry is on a peace seeking mission in a far off galaxy this week, but will return to our airwaves next week. Max Beckman is filling in for out nineteenth episode in which we spend much of our times discussing this week’s “War of the Green Lantern” books, Nick Spencer “Fear Itself” crossovers, and Wolverine titles. While we are getting a kick out of the Green Lantern titles, we did have some tough-love for DC this week.
