This is the News Roundup for the second week of April 2018. In theory we talk about the Marvel Lifestyle, Batgirl, the Solo Trailer, and Isao Takahata, but we get off on some great tangents about Drag Queens and the best ways to spend your lunch break. As a bonus, Nik is in a musical mood and we get some original songs and parodies.
