Episode #47 of the Darkhan City Awesome Comics Culture Podcast is uploaded for your downloading pleasure!

(click HERE to listen, or HERE to download the individual episode)

Episode description:
Rarely do the Pantyhose Ninjas discuss a production that is NOT awesome. If, however, such a creation is an adaptation of a property that IS awesome, it is our responsibility to warn you not to fall into its trap. Enter M. Night Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender." Oh well. At least we've got another childish word of the day to help cheer you.
