Episode 93 | Own Your Trash

This episode was recorded on November 20th, 2016. The show this week features Nick and Kate talking all about those pesky cultural references and “memes” in comic books. However, at the end of the day, there are some books that do this well and others that don’t. This episode dives into finding where the line is drawn.
