Welcome back Fireside Faithful! Twerking Maurer! That will make sense when you hit play. It’s Wednesday dear firesider… so comics and current events are afoot.

Greetings and salutations dear Firesiders, it’s that time once again. The Wednesday sun smiles upon us with the promise of new comics, new adventures, and new… well not really news… but a new show! Yeah… a new show. Join Mendte and Mashko as they hold down the fort with long-time Firesider, but newly named, Ry aka Felix Hergoood. Join the guys as they catch up on Game of Thrones’s House of the Dragon and She-Hulk, moving into D23 rumored MCU announcements and the Thunderbolts line up. The gents also talk about the more adult Batman animated series being shopped to other streaming services and a little Fear the Walking Dead. Lastly, Ry had something he wanted to talk about that he’s seen asked countless times in comments sections around the social webs (not from Maurer) - Did the MCU die with Iron Man? Are superhero movies going the way of the western as Steven Spielberg predicted? Here is what the guys have to say… I mean after you hit play… we’ll go ahead… Welcome to Fireside!
Welcome back Fireside family. The world of comic-related current events seems to be taking a trip back to the familiar isles of Westeros. Even with the House of Hulks showing the world they are more than just a courtroom sitcom, nothing grabs your attention like a dragon. Join Mendte, Mashko, Baby Huey, and Mr. Maurer as they talk about the premiers of both the Game of Thrones spinoff, House of Dragons, as well as the long-awaited premier of She-Hulk. To start things off we need to revisit the Dark Knights watch to see what else from Warner Brothers is on the Chopping block, namely Batman. Seems like the adult animated series may be headed to the same Ghaston Grey fate near the sea of Dorne. Maybe Sir Netflix or Lord Peacock may be the caped crusader's only hope. So Welcome to Fireside and of course, "Dracarys!"
Welcome back to the Chat Fireside Faithful! Today’s show is a little all over the place but to be honest… when isn’t it? So while you pick up your pull list, join our scatterbrained hosts for a grab back of topics, news, breakdowns, and reviews. Join Mendte, Maurer, and Mashko as they talk about the importance of recent MCU content on future readers, Super Pets and its surprising awesomeness, Vampire hunting in Netflix’s Day Shift, some D23 announcements, and then in a twist of fate, Features jumps in to get you prepared for Marvel’s big event Judgment Day! Who are the key players in the Avengers, X-Men, and Eternals, why are they fighting, and much more. So hit play of it would be considered a deviation and you may get judged. Welcome to Fireside.
Greetings and salutations Fireside Family! Wednesday is as unstoppable as the Juggernaut, and in its wake of mid-week lulls we have new comics, and of course… new news. Join Mendte, Mashko, Maurer, and Baby Huey as they talk about what comic-related things required a little chat. From more news about the great Warner Brothers Discover purge, shelving more than just Batgirl, to leaked set photos from Iron Heart, the new TMNT title, Sandman on Netflix, Prey on Hulu, and much much more. So grab your wakeboard and let up pull you through the Wednesday lull for like an hour or so. Welcome to Fireside.
