SHOW NOTES

Chris Poirer and Hector Miray team up for the first “unofficial” episode of The Pull List podcast where they talk all things comics, pop culture, faith and how it all interacts in the nerd culture at large.

Up this week is Batman #53 and the subject of Batman’s beliefs which many feel writer Tom King revealed as atheism. While Tom King may not agree with that assessment, many readers and critics weighed in on the uproar. Chris and Hector do their best to parse out the meaningful discussions.
