Episode 273 – Crisis Counselling Part 6: 3 Earths, 3 Deaths

Left to their own devices, Darren and Paul once again leap into the anti-matter wave, and bring you another episode of Crisis Counselling. This time, it’s Crisis on Infinite Earths number 6, as we see the universes that would eventually merge to bring us the Post-Crisis DCU, along with the first DCU appearances of many Charlton Action Heroes, and the new Wildcat.

From all of us here at Subs HQ, we wish you a very happy and safe New Year. See you all in 3014!

Episode 272 – Happy Festivus!

With the holidays in full swing, the Subs celebrate the greatest of all holidays: Festivus. This episode lands on the 23rd of December, which is, of course, the day of Festivus!

Whatever holiday you celebrate, we here at Subs HQ wish you, your families and friends a safe and happy one. From ours to yours, we are Legion!
