GYCO Pod #34

Neil and Martin are back with the latest episode of the Get Your Comic On Podcast, available now on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, TuneIn and all your favourite podcast platforms.

This week we’re dedicating the entire episode to the 80th birthday of none other than the Boy Wonder himself, no not Martin, but Dick Grayson and the rest of DC Comics wonderful cast of Robin’s.

As DC releases it’s 100-page Super Spectacular to celebrate 80 years of the character we’re diving deep on which Robin’s are our favourites, what storylines have impacted us most and also sharing our thoughts on all the live-action interpretations of the character.

We also review the Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular and give a preview of the upcoming YA graphic novel The Lost Carnival which stars none other than the original Boy Wonder, Dick Grayson!

We also share some of your thoughts on the character including another appearance by our favourite cosplayer Chester aka PJ Boy Wonder!
