Nick and Kate join Mike to talk about our recommendations for first time readers–or, as they put it, getting people “hooked on comics,” not to be confused with “hooked on phonics.”
What are their favorite comics with themes of family? Why do we love them so much? Why is Mike such an X-Trash person?
Tia and Nick join Mike this week to talk about the jargon and weird words we use in comic books, what they mean, and why some are just plain dumb.
This week’s episode was recorded on April 24th, 2016. Our show this week features guests Brian and Kate with host Mike Rapin. This week’s topic is focused around the gang’s attempts at creating a comic and eventually turns into how doing just that is a major endeavour. The show is rounded out with a discussion about indie comics–specifically comiXology Submit–and how, sometimes, you just have to try something new.
