Episode 60 | Take Your Comic Storage to 11

This week’s episode was recorded on February 28th, 2016. This week, Tia Vasiliou, Paul Jaissle, and host Mike Rapin talked their comic picks (Black Widow #1 and Mockingbird #1) and moved on to having a nice long chat about comic book storage. Actually, it was closer to Tia explaining how to store your comics for generations to come and how most modern care techniques are, unfortunately, bad.

Episode 58 | What’s the deal with social media?

This week’s episode was recorded on February 13th, 2016. This week, Mike, Nick, and Jeff talk comics, their comic picks (Archie #6, Imperium #13, and Snowfall #1). After tangenting for a bit, the focus of the show (barely) manages to stick to the topic of the “social contract” between comic creators and their fans on social media.

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.
