So far, anything touched by DC on the silver screen has done fantastic in the box office. But according to the website Rotten Tomatoes, they can’t do anything right. The critic aggregator site’s critics claim that Rotten Tomatoes shows a bias in favor of Marvel films. David Ayer even went so far as to send out a (now deleted) tweet outright accusing critics of taking bribes to judge DCEU films more harshly. He has since tweeted a retraction of that statement but, he seems to have struck a nerve with the fan community.

When I first caught wind of this nasty rumor, I thought it was nothing more than smoke. I thought to myself, “There’s no way a site that big would risk everything on something like that.” But, just like the guy I am, I did my due diligence and found some disturbing evidence to support the conspiracy theorists. With an average fan rating and critic rating difference of a whopping 41%, I found it a little disturbing. I expected it to be a little bit closer than that. With the highest rated DC film to be Man Of Steel at a, still rotten, 55%, and Suicide Squad garnering a 98% fan rating, things do seem off. I didn’t understand how far off until I saw the ratings for Marvel.

It’s a rather sleepy week, as far as ground breaking issues dropping. DK:III finally drops issue #5, after a very long wait. DC is also starting it’s round of annuals for the year. Marvel is releasing Spider-Man/Deadpool #6, and the much awaited Captain America: Steve Rogers #2. Everyone is DYING to know what that “Hail Hydra” was all about. Other than that, there’s a ton of new publishers now releasing through Diamond. That means, new independent titles for us all.
Let’s raid the racks!

Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas, the end of The Darkseid War, an all new Captain America, and the start of DC’s REBIRTH all dropping today?!?! Well, I don’t have to tell you how cool that is. But, I do want to point out some things you won’t want to miss in all the commotion between DC and Marvel. Symmetry Vol. 1 also drops today. Smaller publishers determine whether or not to continue a title based on how many trades are sold. SO BUY SYMMETRY!!!!! You won’t regret it. Well, those are the highlights for the week, there’s a ton more going on, of course. But let’s not waste time. We gotta get to the racks so we can actually get our books before they’re gone!

We’re excited to meet and greet out listeners and readers, and urge you to take advantage of that! We’ll be there from open till the comics are GONE!

FCBD is a day for comic fans to celebrate every first Saturday in May. It is exactly what it sounds like. Comic book publishers print one or two books specifically for FCBD. You walk into your local comic book store, pick out what books you want (some retailers set a limit), and you get those books FOR FREE. It really doesn’t get much easier.
