It's go-time, party people. Welcome to The Book Report #113, Crave Online's funnybook podcast, with your hosts, the ever-knowledgable Iann Robinson and the guy who hasn't seen Battle Royale, Andy Hunsaker.

This week, we discuss the potential Wonder Woman Smallville-styled TV show, the rumored appearance of Dr. Strange in Thor 2, the new Marvel NOW developments of Thunderbolts and Avengers Arena (it's STILL a Hunger Games cash-in), as well as a giant stack of this week's comics, including Avengers vs. X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, Batman, Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, Punk Rock Jesus, Stumptown, Avenging Spider-Man, Uncanny X-Force, Rocketeer, Steed & Mrs. Peel, New Avengers, Team 7, Frankenstein, Harbinger, Batman & Robin, The Creep, Demon Knights, American Vampire, Winter Soldier, The Massive, The Victories, Orchid and X-O Manowar with its lamentable Ninjak.
