Episode 137 | Dystopia, Research, and Honorary Witches

This episode was recorded on November 19th, 2017. Paul and Nick join Mike to discuss our obsession with dystopias–but more specifically dystopian comics.

This episode was recorded on March 19th, 2017. Nick and Brian join Mike to talk about why we drop comic books, why we stop buying them, and how we go about drawing the line on when to stop reading something.

Episode 38 | The Problem With Pants

This week’s episode was recorded on September 20, 2015. Hosts Nick, Brian, and Jon disregard their holy overlord Mike to record a secret podcast (not really). They chat their current comic reads and their comic picks for this week (Runaways #4, We Are Robin #4, Mythic #4, Book of Death #3)–even though Jon didn’t really have a pick. Stretching into the discussion territory, the gang chats about how we, as readers, deal with comic creators who are jerks? They move on to discussing DC’s “un-cancelling” of Omega Men then wrap up with a discussion about books coming back from the dead (ie. Bedlam, maybe). Links for this week: DC UN-cancels Omega Men Bedlam to return? This week’s music was by Neo Indian, What So Not, The Pharcyde, Panama, and Infinity Shred. This week’s episode was produced by Mike Rapin, Nick White, and Zander Riggs, and edited by Zander Riggs. Have a question? Want us to talk about a topic?
