 After an extended hiatus "Truman" and "Nancy" join forces once again! It's season 2 of the Bloodbath2 Podcast! We start with a brief re-introduction to the podcast which includes some tangents which almost immediately threaten to derail the show. Then settle in for an in-depth look at all of the Marvel Netflix shows including all the technical, canonical, and cultural problems they present.

The first in a planned mega multi-part series from the bloodbath crew. In this first installment, Erik takes us on a trip around the early days of the DC multiverse by looking at the early publishing history of DC comics and how creative and societal pressures influenced the growing canon of what would become the DC Multiverse. We meet early comic book pioneers within DC comics like Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson, Harry Donnenfeld and Julius Schwartz. We examine the tradition of alternate dimension story telling in science fiction and fantasy literature going back to early shamanic religious stories. And we take a little side excursion into the real world science of quantum physics.

The Bloodbath crew speculates heavily on the upcoming movies Superman V Batman; Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. As usual we have tangents galore including Wonder Woman publishing history, The Hiketea (WW story), A League of One (WW story), Greg Rucka, Grant Morrison, Alan Moore, Rucka's run on Detective Comics, Big Barda and Scott Free as examples of gender reversal, violence in comics, Slam Bradley, JM DeMatteis's run on The Spectre, Superheros as enforcers of the Industrial/Military Complex status quo and MORE!

The little college student who cried "pornography!" The Stand and Dark Tower adaptations. Later on we discuss Stephen King. Batman Vs Daredevil. Why you can't be Batman. The plague of "realism" in comics and related media.
