This Monday is a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio, the show that mixes comics, geekdom, and politics. It's been a bit since our last episode and we're back to cover some of the latest releases as well as conventions. On tap this week is:
Batgirl got a new look, new location, a new status-quo in Batgirl #35. We discuss the change for the character.
Gotham Academy #1 came out and the series attempts to fill a much needed gap in the DC Comics line-up. We talk about the new series' first issue and recent changes for DC.
New York Comic Con recently descended on New York City's Javitts Center. We talk about the convention and the numerous announcement that came out of it.
We'll discuss the above and more in a brand new episode! We want to hear from you too. You can call in with your thoughts, or Tweet us your thoughts @graphicpolicy.
Well if you're looking (or listening) for one last hurrah before the summer officially ends and school and the fall season star, why not listen to Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse broadcast, airing this Saturday at 6pm EST? Join Daryll B., Capt. Kirk and Dburt as they borrow the keys to Fred's "Mystery Machine" in order to anaylze this week's latest conundrums: actor/comedian/rapper, Donald Glover appears to have gotten his Spiderman wish ; has Wesley Snipes really been confirmed to revisit the Blade franchise for a cool 3 mill plus?; and speaking of reboots, our thoughts on Fox rebooting The Greatest American Hero series; Dburt and Comics Alliance's Chris Sims are both asking about the skewed trajectory of one of DC's original characters, Cassandra Cain (Batgirl); Spike Lee has a new comic but the crew must ask what is the overall end game for celebrity created comic books?; and how cool is it that the Black Nerd Problems site has dubbed the Afropunk festival the new "Wakanda" (we can dig it); and lastly, what would the crew like to see character development-wise in mainstream Black comic characters (Falcon, Panther, Storm, Black Lightning, Cage,etc)? Call live at 646-915-9620.
And in a display of designated hitter status, airs at 7pm. The topics on the table are: cleaning up some of the issues we failed to address during the last show (i.e. the #iftheygunnedmedown campaign, Kevin Sorbo rant; Megyn Kelly vs Bill O'reilly on White privilege, Mo'ne Davis); is that a budding "afronerd" we see in a car seat viral video? (how exasperating!) ; 71 yr old bodybuilder, Sonny Bryant reminds Dburt that it's time for Operation:Rebirth and our thoughts on the N-word being used on the front page of an Egyptian newspaper.
Starlog #140710 -- talking about the new Batgirl, the New 52, a possible new Crisis, the "fake" script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Plus: Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany was robbed again!
"Why New 52 is New Coke"

Tonight we're talking comics and video games:
A new creative team and design for Bat-Girl aka Barbara Gordon has been introduced and of course people are pissed off about it. We'll talk about that as well as taking a cosplay approach to designing future comic book characters and what it might mean.
On the games front. Sony has crosses the 100 million mark across all consoles and hand held devices. Does this mean Sony is back on top? or are these numbers a bit more decpetive than they look?
we'll talk about that and in between we'll go on 15minute tangets....so I guess we'll see where it all goes.
CAP 3 will be marvels first Flop! BATMAN VS SUPERMAN Will Destroy! It! Original Batgirl in Bette Kane in Gotham Show! Sara Paxton Cast! the DC marvel wars Begin

And the crew simply ponders how Tarzan "works" within a 21st century context; Marvel may pull the trigger on a female solo film, under the Scarlet Johansson/Black Widow brand (still no Black Panther film, huh); Milestone Media co-founder Denys Cowan reminisces about 20th anniversary of his legendary comic book company and colleague, Dwayne McDuffie; MarySue.com highlights the return and neglect of the alternate Batgirls-Stephanie Brown returns in the new 52 but not the queen of assassin style badassery, Cassandra Cain and lastly, a recent Huffpost Canada op-ed piece ponders what we've all be pondering-why isn't the success of comic book movies translating back to the source?..the comics! Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
