Welcome to The Book Report, Crave Online's comic book podcast, coming at you live from the San Diego Comic-Con – at least half of it is. Crave Comics Editor Andy Hunsaker is in the thick of it, while Resident Pain in the Ass Iann Robinson holds down the fort on the home front.
This week, we go over Day One of the comic book news coming out of the Con, including various bits from DC's Batman panel, including Batgirl, Robin, Red Hood and Catwoman, as well as Marvel's "Next Big Thing" panel, which turned out to not be their next big thing, but just a smattering of little things, including Avengers: The Children's Crusade and potential new gay characters, Black Panther vs. Kingpin, and Deadpool facing off against Evil Deadpool – and, of course, we delve into Fear Itself a bit more. Also of note, the Dark Horse announcements about Guillermo Del Toro, Tom Morello and P.C. Cast coming to comics, and there's that new Amazing Spider-Man teaser trailer to dissect.
