Trentus Magnus July 12, 2016


Background
share close

In this week’s ball-searing episode, Magnus concludes the Barbara Gordon/Dick Grayson megaseries. The focus of these episodes has been the evolution of their relationship, which is sometimes cordial and sometimes not. This week, it’s committed, confused, romantic and rejected. But never all of those things at the time, thankfully!

The idea for this megaseries came from a Batman comic book reading project your wise emperor fell into not very long at all before recording these episodes. Oddly enough, that was the first His Excellency had even heard of the Babs/Dick relationship! It was a totally new idea here!

This week Birds of Prey #8 and Nightwing Annual #2 come under the microscope and Magnus goes into long, laborious depth as to the nuances and subtleties of the story. Or stories.

These issues see Dick and Barbara try but never quite manage to get on the same page with one another. And how does Kory fit into all this anyway?

Last of all, Trentus Magnus Punches Reality has always depended on music. The thinking goes that even if the episode is no good, at least it sounds great, right? Even so, of nothing is that more true than this Babs/Dick megaseries. Further, this week’s theme song is all about the anticipation of seeing that special someone and having an adventure together. If Babs and Dick have a song, undoubtedly it could be this one.

Due to the avalanche of ass-kickery, unfortunately there was just no time for listener feedback this week. In fairness though, there was a fair amount of feedback (and feed-forward!) not long ago so this subject hasn’t been entirely ignored lately.

Patience! The vast backlog of feedback will be addressed in just a few more weeks! You’re all closer to it than you think!

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!
