This episode was recorded on May 14th, 2017.
Kara and Tia join Mike to talk about Family in Comic Books. What are their favorite comics with themes of family? Why do we love them so much? Why is Mike such an X-Trash person? Kara dives way into Archie and how her life has a void that she must fill with Archie Books, and we want to see more of one trope in comics: Shitty Moms with Hearts of Gold.
