by Molly Jane Kremer and Jarrod Jones. Happy New Comic Book Day! This is CASUAL WEDNESDAYS, a weekly podcast where we indulge in comics and comics-adjacent chatter. The DC Comics January 2022 solicitations are around the corner, and there’s so much to talk about: Mark Waid is teaming with Dan Mora, Nightwing’s got a new costume (sorta), and Tini Howard is a full-fledged CATWOMAN writer now! All this plus: a new origin for Marvel Studios’ FANTASTIC FOUR and… could Spider-Man be a killer?
