1658 - Off the Racks Two-in-One  

We're burning through our backlog of Off the Racks reviews double-time, bringing you six (count 'em: SIX!) semi-seasonable single-issue synopses and size-ups in one fell swoop! From a galaxy far, far away (Marvel's Darth Maul #1) to a WildStorm Universe that's far, far from the one you remember (DC's The Wild Storm #1); from soft-hearted alien assassins (Dark Horse's The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed #1) to hard-headed space cops (Green Lantern/Space Ghost Special #1); from the birth of a nation (Rebels: These Free and Independent States #1) to the rebirth of the X-Men titles (X-Men Prime #1), this episode covers twice the comics in only 130% the time! But first, a Bat-elegy for the dearly departed Adam West. (1:51:54)

1647 - Off the Racks: Nova #1, Supergirl: Being Super #1, & WW '77 Meets Bionic Woman #1  

Something old (the retro vibe of Wonder Woman '77 Meets the Bionic Woman #1), something new (the youthful protagonists of Nova #1 and Supergirl: Being Super #1), something borrowed (Murd's copy of Scooby-Doo Team-Up #23), and something blue (Blue Rider, the Led Zeppelin wannabes seen in Rockstars #1): a perfect marriage of elements for a great Off the Racks episode!
