This week’s episode was recorded on August 21st, 2016. Tia and Kate join Mike for a discussion all about superhero fashion and costumes. It’s a long winding path that leads to some discussion about the male-gaze, cosplayers, and Mike being a completely lazy comic nerd by the end of the episode. Enjoy!

This week’s episode was recorded on June 12th, 2016. Our show this week is a special one with editor of upcoming book Humans and Paragons: Essays on Super Hero Justice, Ian Boucher! This weeks episode focuses on discussing the upcoming book about super hero justice, the issues with the current American justice system, and why books like this one are incredibly important to both society and comic book culture. Many many thanks to Ian and Sequart.org for letting us read some of the essays in this book and for giving us this opportunity to talk about this subject on our show!

This week’s episode was recorded on August 23rd, 2015, and July 7th, 2015. At one point, Nick, Paul, and Mike decided to talk about Transformers vs. GI Joe at length and store it away. It was this week that, despite having comic picks (Dead Drop #4, Superman #43, and Fall of Ninjak), they had nothing to talk about (except some lingering thoughts from last week). So, as a fix for this situation, they have pulled from the “vault” their talk on Transformers vs. GI Joe–if you’re not sick of them talking about it yet, you will be after this week. This week’s music was by The New Law and Infinity Shred. This week’s episode was edited and produced by Mike Rapin. Have a question? Want us to talk about a topic?
