All five bears are back in the CBB den this week to talk about Suicide Squad, the third movie in the DC Extended Universe series of films. The film stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Viola Davis and Margot Robbie among the cast and our furry fivesome weigh in on whether Suicide Squad is a movie you should kill to see or if a neckbomb going off would be preferable. After that, the comic book talk starts with 4001 A.D.: War Mother, All-New X-Men, All-New Wolverine, Black Panther, Old Man Logan, the revival of Rom from IDW, The Vision, Darth Vader, Marvel's recent C-3PO special, Jupiter's Legacy and Superwoman each finding a berth on our spinner rack!

This week's Comic Book Bears Podcast episode finds Billy Z, Steve and (eventually) Matt talking about two television programs that have been on the minds of many folks these past few weeks. In one corner you have Jessie Custer, Tulip and Cassidy! In the other, you have Dustin, Eleven and - sigh - Benny! So tune in to our SPOILER FILLED examination of both AMC's PREACHER (based upon the Vertigo series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon) and STRANGER THINGS from Netflix!
(Yeah, yeah, yeah - we know that STRANGER THINGS isn't really comic book related but sometimes we throw the rules out the window ... and into the Upside Down.)
Intro - "Reflections of You" by Bear in Heaven
Outro - "If I Was a Folkstar" by The Avalanches

We are four bears (Bill, Matt, Justin and Steve) strong this week as Bryan takes the episode off. We focus mainly on the recent spate of new DC Rebirth titles including Superman, Action Comics, Wonder Woman, Batman, Detective Comics, Green Arrow, Flash, Justice League, Aquaman, Green Lanterns, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, Titans and Batgirl and the Birds of Prey! We stray a little bit away from the DCU to discuss Prophet: Earth War, Jeff Lemire's Plutona and a little bit of classic Marvel talk about Daughters of the Dragon! (Also pay attention to the Woofs of the Week segment as it gives you a clue about what is on the docket for our next episode!)
