Kara and Tia discuss Batmansplaining and how Bat-fans gatekeep their precious Batman in good and (mostly) bad ways.
This week’s episode was recorded on October 9th, 2016. While Mike (and Tia) were off at NYCC, Nick hosted the show this week with Brian and Kate. The show this week focused on retconning in comics and when it’s good or bad (specifically in Big 2 books). Despite all reasoning, they managed to put together a great episode, but near the end things go a bit off the deep end! And if you have a moment, please take the I Read Comic Books Listener survey!

This week’s episode was recorded on September 25th, 2016. Our show this week is longer than usual, but it’s definitely incredible. Nick and Paul join Mike to talk a whole bunch about comics and what they read recently. However, the main, and very long, topic for this week is all about the legacy of Jack Kirby.
