Episode 189 | War in Comics

This episode was recorded on February 3rd, 2019!

On IRCB this week, Paul and Nick chat with Mike about the depiction of War in comics, a brief history on the topic, and some of the comics they believe depict was in a real, non-celebratory way. Mike also has a minor breakdown in the first half of the show regarding Age of X-Men.
