Issue 115: Ultimatum – The Divisive Issues Series Finale!

We’re going out with a BANG!

It’s time! Our podcast is ending, and so is Marvel’s Ultimate universe! Jeff Loeb’s contentious ULTIMATUM serves as the Final Destination of our comic book critique, and we have a loooot of things to say about it—almost two hours of material! For this crossover event we pull our original host Joe out of the Speed Force to help us analyze this wacky, wacky story.

Thank you very much for supporting Divisive Issues all these years—we hope you’ve enjoyed listening to us as much as we’ve enjoyed stubbornly arguing with one another! Stay in continuity!

Trade Collection 5: Modern Comics – Tom King’s Redemption?

Obviously this was written before Superman renounced his US citizenship.

Our final Trade of Patreon episodes features mostly single issues of random modern comics that almost made it into our main show. Most of these were also released at the tail end of our Patreon’s lifespan so it’s only appropriate to end with them. We check out some weird holiday comics that were leftover from our previous holiday specials. We also check out a definitive Superman story and once again have a Superman debate with Darryl. On top of that, we also revisit Tom King not once but twice in this collection. Tom King finally produces something we like and it happens in the most unexpected book of all.

Issues Covered:
Tom King’s Batman 45-47: “The Gift”
Action Comics 775: “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice, & the American Way?”
Punisher Holiday Special 3: “The Cold Land”
Detective Comics 826: “Slayride”
Batman vs Elmer Fudd: “Pway for me”

Trade Collection 4: Movies – Bleach, Man of Steel, and Titans (kinda)

Titans
Bleach is back, baby!

This Patreon collection features the episodes where we were too lazy to narrate comic issues. So we instead have talks about movies instead though some of these discussions are more general discussions about super heroes in general. We discuss Man of Steel, the Bleach movie, and more! We also have a fun skit from Darryl discussing the Titans trailer of “**** Batman” fame.

Films Covered
Bleach: The Soul Reaper Arc (Netflix Movie)
Titans (DC Universe Series)
Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel

Trade Collection 3: Heroes in Crisis (as are the Hosts)

Heroes in Crisis
Harley Quinn can totally kick the asses of everyone here. -Tom King, probably

Our biggest and most successful Patreon collection appropriately features most people’s entryway into comics: a big event. Check out the DI crew experience a DC event in real time as they go through 2019’s Heroes In Crisis! This one focuses on superheroes going through therapy when a massive murder scene occurs. Ryan hates it right off the bat while Sly finds the premise intriguing. Check out who ends up drastically changing their opinion! Also check out Phil and Darryl and their unfortunate

Issues Covered:
Heroes in Crisis 1-9

Trade Collection 2: Superman’s “Pal” Jimmy Olsen

This is why Jimmy’s always acting out, Superman.

For our second Patreon collection, we’re focusing on the Patreon mascot himself: Jimmy Olsen. For some reason Superman’s powerless sidekick had his own series in the Silver Age and it ran for over 100 issues. But is he really Superman’s Pal or something more sinister? Come and listen to our own unique interpretations to his stories. Also check out the progression as this lovable dork slowly worms his way into Darryl’s heart to become his favorite Superman character.

Jimmy Olsen Issues:
30: “The Son of Superman”
71: “The Plot Against Olsen!”
86: “Jimmy’s D-Day Adventure!”
112: “The Murderous Magnaman!”
125: “Superman’s Saddest Day!”

Trade Collection 1: Silly Silver Age Stories

Truly a crucial aspect of DC History – Sly

With the end of the Flying Machine Network, we’re releasing all our old Patreon episodes to our regular feed in bulk! Our first collection features random and goofy Silver Age stories we have covered. These stories include Superman meeting JFK, Batman fighting a frozen Caveman, and a gorilla’s plan to take over the world through his local public library. We also clarify the distinctions between the Silver Age and Golden Age for our comic newbies, Darryl and Phil.

Silver Age Issues:
Action Comics 309: “The Superman Super-Spectacular!”
Detective Comics 337: “Deep Freeze Menace!”
Strange Adventures 75: “Secret of the Man-Ape”
Strange Adventures 100: “The Amazing Trial of John (Gorilla) Doe” Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane 13: “Introducing… Lois Lane’s Parents!”
