This week:

It’s Fox’s birthday so we drink a little more than we normally do on the show. We start with listener e-mail and a new quiz, Beer or Bullshit?                                                                                                                                     

News: The Batmobile, Dr. Strange, Classic Batman Action Figs, Beer Takeovers and so much more.

Commercial Break: Delicious and nutritious Skrull milk.

Mixed Bag Reviews: Fox spent the week drinking beer for his birthday so he did not read the mixed bag, but Corey soldiered on. Wonder Woman Futures End #1 had a demonic Napoleon, Thor God of Thunder #25 was the perfect end for this run and X-Files Season 10 #16 was a lot like watching the show.

Beers of the Week: Mamma Mia Pizza Beer, Old Brown Dog Ale

Retro Read: In Dr. Strange #1 (1974) we find out what Dr. Strange and James Brown have in common?
