Episode 53 - Child's Play (Static Shock S01E07)

We're happy to announce that All Along the Watchtower has become PLUS ULTRA, as the boys, minus Graham, have been infected by My Hero Academia fever. The first 30 minutes of this episode are filled with wine, MHA Hot Takes and general bullshit, so if you actually want to hear about Static Shock (which they liked this week!), maybe skip ahead a bit.

In Dakota City, Static is forced to tackle his most dangerous foe yet: A kid named Dwayne with GODLIKE POWERS. He uses them to turn actual street garbage into hot dogs. Behind the ridiculous god-child plot, there's actually a solid emotional core which the crew hope are the first signs of Static finding its footing as a show.

Sorry if the audio is a little tinny at times, Zack has run into an unknown sound error and is working to get it taken care of.

Your Komix Korner recommendations this week are X-Men: Grand Design by Ed Piskor and Gotham Central by Ed Brubaker, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark.
