In which our intrepid heroes (Hub and Cory) endeavor to read and discuss the entire New Teen Titans series AND the entire Defenders series. Using only their wits, Hub's comic book collection, and a not insignificant amount of alcohol, these brave men attempt the Sisyphean task of wringing coherence from the four color world of 70's/80's comics. Which is to say that my brother Cory and I get our swerve on and read some comics. Join us, won't you?

Got into an argument the other day because I forgot that Beaky wasn’t canonical.

In the debut issue of their first series the Teen Titans join the Peace Corps, fight a giant conquistador shaped robot and three Don Rickles faced magical animals, and team up with Juan Valdez to punch out a creepy old man. Which somehow isn't weird enough for Hub. Also, the sound quality is kind of jacked on this one. Sorry. We were drunk and made a microphone error. If you want your money back, mail me some money and I'll mail it back to you. Probably. ttwasteland.tumblr.com
