The Comics Fondle Podcast | Suicide Squad: The Movie Special

Suicide squad joker poster

Matt talked me into seeing Suicide Squad, which I actually forgot to give him crap about on this podcast special.

We talk about the movie, we talk about the comics, we talk about comic book movies. It’s Marvel Comics movies vs. DC Comics movies from a couple DC Comics fans (definitely more so than not, anyway) who don’t even like the Marvel Comics movies too much. Suicide Squad is just so objectively bad, it forces uneasy alliances and unlikely sympathies.

In hindsight, however, the Suicide Squad trailer did have Jared Leto’s Tony Montana meets Patrick Bateman rendition of The Joker promising to hurt someone really, really bad. And the movie delivers. It hurts your brain, really, really bad. Because it’s really, really bad.

So join Matt and I as we relive the lows and lowers and lowests of David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide Squad.

Did you take the time to listen to the C2E2 podcasts as they happened? Vernon and I left out all the good stuff about walking around and getting lost in McCormick Place… Maybe we’ll have to do a bigger recap episode.

Friday was a lot of walking around and a lot of looking at stuff. Heck, I can’t remember. Listen to the compilation of the mini-episodes.

It sure has taken us a while to get to the third episode of the Comics Fondle podcast. We blame the summer.

This episode, Vernon and I talk about new comic books, a recap on DC’s “Villains Month” as it relates to retailers (since I don’t read such things), we make fun of the Hugo Awards for not reading good enough comics and we eventually try to figure out how long until Warner Bros. pulls the plug on DC entirely.

Not to mention we have new intro music!
