Well, our listeners told us they wanted more roundtable episodes. This week, Matt is gearing up for a weekend of batchin’ it, while Chris is preparing himself for a long weekend of Fluke in Athens and WrestleMania in New Jersey. It’s the jet-set lifestyle at its finest!

When Joe and Danielle join us, we talk a lot about WrestleMania, including a rundown of the experience from Danielle, who was at the show last year, to first-timers Chris and Joe :

“I’ve never been to Comic-Con, so I don’t know how they relate, but last year was a lot of fun. We made the drive down to Miami from Burlington, Ontario, which is just outside of Toronto, so it was a long drive and I almost shoot murdered my boyfriend after being trapped in the car for that long. It was not fun. But Miami was awesome.

I guess I had all the feelings that you guys have now, because I’d never been and it was more about the spectacle and the experience than it was about any of the matches on the card. I wasn’t really excited about any of them last year, especially after sitting through Undertaker/Triple H Part 2, which was a lot better in person than it was when I watched it back. When it’s your first time, it doesn’t really matter what’s happening, because it’s so big and there’s so much happening, and everyone is super excited to be there.”

Plus, we offer up predictions for the entire card!

Chris’s Rec: The Bad Popes, by E.R. Chamberlin

Matt’s Rec: Split Second

Comics Reviewed:

Uncanny Avengers #5: “Havok’s in a weird place as a character. He really wants to distance himself from Cyclops and what Cyclops stands for. I don’t think this is Rick Remender using Havok as a mouthpiece.” “I would’ve thought that, too, until he started responding to people about it.”

New Crusaders: Rise of the Heroes: “It’s a crazy Archie superhero comic, and when I say that it’s crazy, I mean that in the first issue, everybody’s parents get killed. Six kids’ parental figures are murdered in front of them. Six Batmans happen.”

Savage Skullkickers #1: “It’s a good introduction for new readers without beating you over the head, it’s got that great boisterous tone that the series has had throughout, and the art is beautiful.”
