Mike and Brian are joined by special guest Paloma Deerfield to chat about what gets us the most excited about comics.
This episode was recorded sometime in the recent past! This week, Mike and Nick discuss two books they picked… for each other! This is the first of a new series called “Book vs. Book” where two people pick comics (roughly equal is length) for the other to read. Then we record an episode. Enjoy!!

This week’s episode was recorded on September 18th, 2016. The show this week features guests Nick and Kate to talk about politics in comic books. The topic meanders a bit, but the ultimate discussion of how politics are handled, presented, inserted, and masked in comics is discussed. This may seem heavy, but, on the whole, it’s a fun talk about how we as comic fans read into stories.
