Happy holidays and Merry Christmas! Santa galore here at DI HQ! We celebrated by showcasing some of our favorite Christmas comics from Marvel and DC. Some of our meaning some hosts, the actual opinions seem to vary wildly. We hope you and your family get along better than we do.
On this episode, we cover a myriad of issues. Like the time Dr. Doom was Santa! And the time The Punisher was Santa! Or the time Batman was Santa! Or when a homeless guy was Santa (and hung out with Starman). Also: Superman prevents a holiday suicide and Thanos visits dolphins with baby dolly. Sly has another Freudian slip. Darryl learns the true meaning of bravery. Ryan tries to add in some Christmas spirit. And Phil gets yelled at. A lot.
It’s Christmas! Let’s get EDGY. Last year we covered that time extreme edgelord Lobo killed Santa Claus. And earlier in the year, we covered fascist Authority-member Batman-But-Gay Midnighter. What would happen if these titans of profanity and gore clashed? Spoilers: They do in this episode.
Here we are. We made it. Can you believe it’s already Christmas time? What a great holiday to close out an objectively great year. Everyone’s having a wonderful time. Especially Sly, who hates Christmas as much as he loves Korn. Darryl finally gets why complex continuity and inaccessible callbacks are what make comics amazing. Phil’s still desperately trying to quit the podcast. And here’s a secret: Ryan actually went out and bought a bunch of Authority books right after we recorded as an early present to himself.
This episode’s real not safe for work, y’all. Even more than usual.
