Episode 87 | On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

This week’s episode was recorded on October 9th, 2016. While Mike (and Tia) were off at NYCC, Nick hosted the show this week with Brian and Kate. The show this week focused on retconning in comics and when it’s good or bad (specifically in Big 2 books). Despite all reasoning, they managed to put together a great episode, but near the end things go a bit off the deep end! And if you have a moment, please take the I Read Comic Books Listener survey!

Episode 83 | Please Fave Responsibly

This week’s episode was recorded on September 11th, 2016. After week off due to some technical weirdness and traveling, but we are back! Our show this week is a great one. We had a new guest joining Mike and Tia: Kara Szamborski from the comiXologist podcast! The episode this week is all about your “problematic favorite characters” (aka “problematic faves”) in comic books (and other media). Kara dives real deep into the Archie Comics/Riverdale universe and fashion world, and Mike gets lost. Near the end, there’s some talk of fan fiction and “coffee shop fic” which is a whole different thing, but, as per usual, this episode is fantastic.

Episode 31 | Experiences in buying comics

This week’s episode was recorded on August 2nd, 2015. In a magical, last-minute chance, Mike and Nick were joined by Jeff Perry, host of the After Image podcast. After their comic picks for the week (The Wicked + The Divine #13, Nailbiter #15, and Bloodshot: Reborn #5), the gang dives into Jeff’s podcast and his love for Image comics, then they try to (and only sort of do) answer the question, “How do you drop comics from your regular pull list?” While they never truly answer the question, a discussion about their experiences in buying comics, how to pre-order comics (via Kieron Gillen), and the advantages and disadvantages of buying digital and print comics. Many thanks to Jeff for joining us this week! Check out the After Image podcast and Jeff on Twitter. This week’s music was by Panda Eyes, Mariana and the Diamonds, and Infinity Shred.
