Tom and Shawn call upon their inner chi to give Netflix’s Iron Fist a well-deserved beatdown; Paramount tries to solicit a Pro; Tom discovers that the pratfalls and faux pas of the comics industry don’t hold a candle to the shenanigans in video game culture; and June Previews draws our attention to praiseworthy initiatives from Dark Horse and Oni Press.

We also discuss Coady and the Creepies #1, Batwoman #1, Helena Crash #1, Transformers vs. G.I. Joe: The Movie: The Official Comic Book Adaptation, Judge Dredd: Deviations #1, and 2000AD‘s long-running epic Strontium Dog.

Tom Shapira is a carbon-based life from the planet earth. He was formed in the year 1985 AD by two loving parents. He is also an MA student of English Lit. at Tel-Aviv University, Israel, where he feels proud to be the first student to graduate with a BA by writing a paper about the works of Grant Morison. In his native tongue, Tom is a staff writer for Israel's leading comics blog and an occasional participant in the blog's bi-weekly podcast. He spends too much time, money and thought on Comics (especially the works of Grant Morison, Alan Moore, Warren Ellis and Garth Ennis) and his friends and family wish he would stop. He is not going to.
