Welcome to Episode 260 of the Two-Headed Nerd Comic Book Podcast! WE’RE BACK, BABIES! This week, we discuss the fan/sales reaction to DC Rebirth and the uneasy grip that *some* fans of DC/WB’s Suicide Squad have on reality.

Plus, debut an all-new, all-different ASK A NERD when we talk with writer Christopher Sebela about his creator-owned work and his upcoming Skybound series Demonic!

Let us know what you think about our new Editor’s Notes, featuring the Ziggurat’s Alec Baldwin A.I.!
