John and DJ have another great time in Arkham Comics and Games and as they say in the show this week no one really reads these show notes anyway so why do we go to all this trouble coming up with new and creative ways to describe what people just want to listen to anyway.  If people wanted to read what we say we would put out a blog every week and not an audio and video podcast.  So if you've read this far congratulations, John will probably buy you a Coke.  (Coke not included)🎒Show MinutesArkham Buzz - 12:40Speculator’s Corner- 25:28Back Issue Bonus- 32:21FOC- 35:31Check Out- 39:05Reel World- 1:06:38Kryptonite Key Club: What if...?- 1:42:59Titans-  1:53:36🎒Join the Chat:Email: TheBrightSideChat@gmail.comTwitter: @BrightSide_Chat                 @ArkhamComixFacebook: BrightsidechatInstagram: TheBrightSideChatThe Bright Side Chat - Bright Side Chat - T-Shirt | TeePublic🎒Speculator’s CornerSPECULATOR ROUNDUPDark Ages #1 Moon Knight #1 2nd print Sonic The Hedgehog #43 Spawn #321Star Wars High Republic Adventures #8Stray Dogs Retailer Thank YouTransformers King Grimlock #2 BACK ISSUE BONUSMoon Knight #1 2nd print (2011) Moon Knight #188 2nd print Batman 89 #1 Werewolf By Night #1 (2020)Amazing Spider-Man #544 Spider-Men #1  FOCDC – Variant Covers –• Batman Superman #22 Gary Frank• Harley Quinn #7 Derrick Chew New Series –• Are You Afraid of Darkseid One Shot – 2 coversDark Horse –• Stranger Things: Tomb of Ybwen #1 (of 4) multipleMarvel – Variant Covers• Amazing Fantasy #3 Kaare Andrews• Black Cat #10 Emanuela LupacchinoNew Series –• Darkhold Alpha One Shot – multiple• Extreme Carnage Omega One Shot – multiple• Inferno #1 (of 4) multipleVault –• Human Remains #1 - multipleCheckoutECHOLANDS #1IMAGE COMICS(W) J.
