This episode was recorded on September 30th, 2018! This week, Tia and Paul join Mike to talk about… POLITICS IN COMICS. Our approach to this topic, at a basic level, is this: All comics contain some form of politics and it’s very hard to tell any kind of story without them. PLUS: Zine #2 is OUT!

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.
