This week is a ball-kicking episode! Look at the artwork! Batgirl is kicking a bad guy in the balls! The BALLS! How was I *EVER* not using this for the art this week! So here we go!

In this week’s ball-kicking episode, Magnus continues the Batgirl and Robin epic megaseries! This one’s all about Barbara Gordon, Dick Grayson and their rather bizarre relationship!

You see, boys and girls, this all spun out of a Batman comic book reading project your wise emperor undertook a week or three before recording these episodes, whereupon he discovered the Babs/Dick ship subplot.

Yes, this subplot was completely invisible to Magnus prior to just a few months ago. Really!

This week, the spotlight falls on the Batgirl- Year One miniseries, which modernizes and updates Babs’ entry point into the DCU. Or DCM. Or whatever the hell they call it this week.

Even though this is certainly an update, it is striking (no, really, *YOU WILL BE STRUCK*) how faithful this enterprise is overall to Barbara’s original introduction.

Much fun is had but, perhaps most importantly, Magnus has a whole new appreciation for Babs and her badassitude!

Finally, Trentus Magnus Punches Reality has always depended a fair amount of music. Of nothing is that more true than this Babs/Dick megaseries.

Due to the avalanche of ass-kickery, unfortunately there was just no time for listener feedback this week.

However, there has been a fair amount of feedback (and feed-forward!) in fairly recent episodes so this subject hasn’t been entirely ignored.

Patience! The vast backlog of feedback will be addressed in due time. Fear not!

In the meantime, though, don’t let the lack of feedback this time get you down! You can still offer your feeble effort at tribute! You humble serfs are always welcome to kiss your benevolent leader’s ring. Corrupt DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept your bribe to present your meager missives to your wise emperor. The email address to use is trentusmagnus@gmail.com as the other seems to be having technical problems.

In an another sublime act of truly unprecedented charity, your emperor permits you lowly rabble to suggest topics for a future episode. Thus, petitions may be sent to trentusmagnus@gmail.com for DiManzocorp interns to review, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
