Those Two Geeks Episode 159: Wait, What did Todd say?

The two geeks talk a little more about The Batman because they’re mildly obsessed with the movie, and then move on to talking about a comment Todd McFarlane made in an interview this week.

As always, Alex and Joe can be found on Twitter respectively @karcossa and @FirstRonin4 if you feel the need to tell them they’re wrong individually, or @those2geeks if you want to yell at them together on Twitter, or by email at ItsThose2Geeks@gmail.com.

Those Two Geeks Episode 158: The Batman

The two geeks are joined by Alex’s brother Martin to talk about The Batman. Martin’s not as entrenched in comic book lore and culture as our hosts, and so we thought it’d be interesting to bring in a fresh set of eyes to the movie (because the two geeks loved the movie) to see how it held up from a non-comics fan perspective.

Mondo Reveals The Batman Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

This week, Mondo continues its ongoing DC soundtrack series with one of the most anticipated scores of the year: Michael Giacchino‘s masterful new score to The Batman. Nearly two hours of music, in which Giacchino flexes his prowess – after decades and nearly two dozen takes on the character and the music of his world, it should be impossible to tackle the world’s greatest detective with something fresh and iconic. But here we stand, and the soundtrack to THE BATMAN is as essential as the film itself.

Featuring original artwork by Henry Abrams, and housed in a spot-varnished tri-fold sleeve, and pressed on 3x 180 Gram vinyl.

Titles will hit The Mondo Record Shop on Wednesday, 3/09 at 12PM CT.
