This week’s episode was recorded on December 13th, 2015. This week, Mike, Nick, and Paul chat about what they read last week (which was purposefully limited this time!) as well as their comic picks for the week (Ivar, Timewalker #12, Judge Dredd #1, and Invincible #126). The focus of this week’s episode was on each of the hosts “Great White Whale” of comics. And the metaphor doesn’t stop there (Harry Potter? Actually discussing Moby Dick?).
