Don and Jerry are joined again by the Jason Inman (jawiin.com) for a round of comic book reviews and news discussion. Jason proves that he has more than comic knowledge to bring to the table—he’s got a flair for on-the-spot theme-song composition! So sit back, relax and enjoy some laughs, some music, and fair-ish discussion of Rob Liefeld comic books.

00:29:16 World’s Finest #1: Jerry feels the Power Girl/Huntress title is the strongest of DC’s Second Wave.
00:36:03 Dial H #1: There is little fault to find in this revival of Dial “H” for Hero.
00:40:19 GI Combat #1: Nobody was blown away, but we all agree this book did not deserve the negative reviews it’s been receiving.
