What’s up with DC only really talking about Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman? Paul, Kara, and Brian talk about DC’s super trinity!
Kait and Kara join Mike this week to talk about income and poverty in comics; how income (or a lack of income) is portrayed, how it seems impossible for heroes to have a stable income, and just how do the X-Men have so much money?
This bonus episode was recorded at Emerald City Comic Con 2018! At ECCC 2018, Mike had the pleasure of speaking with two incredible comic creators: Buster Moody and Caleb Goellner. Buster and Caleb are collaborators on an amazing series, Task Force Rad Squad, and have worked on a ton of other books. Check out this interview!

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.
