Episode 45 | Where do you get your comic news?

This episode was recorded on November 15th, 2015. Mike, Brian, and Nick get sort of distracted on Star Wars discussion this week, but manage to chat about what they read this week and their comic picks for this week (Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #1, Rat Queens #13, and Extraordinary X-Men #2). Distractions aside, the focus of this week’s episode was around comic news–particularly where they get it from and why. Lucky for you, our hosts have varying backgrounds and drop a ton of links (see below).

Episode 24 | Think before you speak, Mike.

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?
