Episode 42 | We Support Gluten-Free Comics

This week’s episode was recorded on October 25th, 2015. Hosts Mike, Nick, and James chat about their last two week’s worth of comics (and it’s a lot)… for a while. Like, a long while. But it’s all good. Their comic picks were quick (Island #4, Book of Death #4, The Spire #4). The focus for this week was all about pull list management. How do you manage your pulls? How do you start and end a subscription? What makes a book “worthy” of being read long term? Relevant Links: Mike’s Pull List Reddit Post – “What is your least favorite book you are pulling and why are you pulling it?” Mike – @mikerapin Nick – @dethstarplnz Timestamps Start: 00:00:00 Comic Picks: 00:23:12 Pull List Management: 00:32:58 Curating Your Pull List: 00:53:21 Credits: 01:12:31 After-Credits: 01:13:27 This week’s music was by Big Gigantic, Gramatik, Vanilla, and Infinity Shred.

This week’s episode was recorded on October 12th, 2015. Hosts Mike, Nick, and Paul chat comics, NYCC, and their comic picks for the week (Constantine: The Hellblazer #5, Justice League United #14, Twilight Children #1). Nick has a problem with buying comics on comiXology… But this week focuses on how comic books are marketed and the pessimism attached to that and the question: Can you actually judge a book by its cover?

This week’s episode was recorded on June 14th, 2015. Hosts Mike, Paul, and Jon, discuss their comic picks this week (Lazarus #17, Trees #10, and Martian Manhunter #1) and gloss over two bits of Marvel News (delays and adult coloring books?). But the meat of this episode focuses around reading “classic” comic books, why we buy indie books, and a little on how we “budget” for comic books. Music this week by Vanilla (“Azure” and “Rashida“), Deluxe, and Infinity Shred. This week’s episode was Produced by Mike Rapin and Zander Riggs, and edited by Zander Riggs. Have a question?
