  • Komodo Dragons, Pursuit Predation and why humans are actually fucking terrifying.
  • Our favorite ’90s animated series that we’d like to see get a remake

  • Sandy and Vince drop some knowledge on the history of Green Arrow and The Comics Code circa 1960’s-1970’s
  • The Rogues talk Gal Gadot getting cast as Wonder Woman, and whether the addition of a third hero might be the downfall of the Batman/Superman movie
  • And much, much more!!
