Welcome to Episode 227 of the Two-Headed Nerd Comic Book Podcast!

This week, it’s a special all-review show, thanks to this week’s HUGE deluge of new releases, but we still find time to discuss the return of Shaft to comics and prose, the relaunch/redesign of the Dynamite heroines, the surprise announcement of the Ant-Man sequel starring the Wasp, the upcoming Power Man & Iron Fist revival, and the upcoming Blade of the Immortal film from Takashi Miike.

Hey! Don’t forget to check out our other podcast, the Answer of the Week, where we talk about the latest Question of the Week with all of YOUR responses!

And when you’re done listening to this week’s episode, head over to the THN Forums to discuss it with your fellow Listenerds!
