Episode 167 | Depression and Mental Illness in Comics

This episode was recorded on July 29th, 2018!

WE ARE BACK! After 4 long weeks off, Mike, Tia, and Brian are back for the regular show to talk about what they’ve been up to for the last month plus the show’s main topic: Depression and Mental Illness in Comics–how it’s portrayed, when it’s done well, when it’s done poorly, and everything in between.

Don’t forget to send in a question of three to us for our next Q&A episode on August 15th! Get your question in before we record on August 12th to have it read and answered on the show!
