The Pull List 5 | The DC Universe and Toxic Fandom


About This Episode

Chris and Hector are back after a week hiatus to talk about a three week back log of comics and TV shows. Will the Walking Dead end after issue #200? Will Hector recover from the cancellation of Daredevil from Netflix? And who knew that an hour of Hawk and Dove would make for captivating TV?

The discussion then turns to the DC streaming service, how the retailers are glaring at the exclusive content, and how customers will get their content however they can that is affordable.
