Episode 81 | Cosplayers can do anything

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!

Episode 69 | I can’t remember what irony is anymore

This week’s episode was recorded on May 1st, 2016. Paul and Tia join Mike, for an episode all about important moments in comics–as well as the usual batch of comic picks and what they read recently. The important moments in comics range all over the place, but the consensus was that creators are important and the Death of Superman was a joke. Plus a few other important bits.

Episode 61 | Skin Cape

This week’s episode was recorded on March 6th, 2016. Host Mike Rapin is joined by Tia Vasiliou and Brian Murray to chat comics (their picks for the week: All-New Wolverine #6, Insexts #4, and Spider-Gwen #6) and super hero costumes–who has the best, the most iconic, and the cosplayability of most super hero costumes.

Episode 56 | THE ANNUAL

This week’s episode was recorded on January 31st, 2016. This episode of I Read Comic Books is a special one as it marks one full year of recording our show. Host Mike Rapin is joined by long-time guests Nick White and Paul Jaissle and the show’s editor, Zander Riggs. They talk comics they’ve read recently and books they’re excited for this week (Paper Girls #5, Captain Marvel #2, and Green Arrow #49), but this week is a weird/special one. There’s no focal topic outside of chatting about the past year of the show. So, if this is your first episode… you may be a bit lost. Next week, we’ll be back to our regular show.
