Welcome to Episode 183 of the Two-Headed Nerd Comic Book Podcast, the 4th Annual Halloween METAL SHOW!

This week, we discuss rumors of a philosophical shake up at DC Comics, Geoff Johns’ recent clarification of Warner Bros’ approach to their comic properties in film and television, and the announcement of the Archie-centric drama “Riverdale” in development at Fox.

Plus, we fill in a relapsing comic junkie on everything he missed at the turn of the millennium in our Comic Pushers segment.
