Nick and Kate try to keep Mike sane this week. But when we’re not learning to count, the gang dives into an old topic (from episode 170!): Comics you would give to yourself at camp.
Kait and Paul join Mike to dig in on the topic of #0s and prologue comics, the canon-rewriting behind them, and some minor history behind them.
This week’s episode was recorded on September 11th, 2016. After week off due to some technical weirdness and traveling, but we are back! Our show this week is a great one. We had a new guest joining Mike and Tia: Kara Szamborski from the comiXologist podcast! The episode this week is all about your “problematic favorite characters” (aka “problematic faves”) in comic books (and other media). Kara dives real deep into the Archie Comics/Riverdale universe and fashion world, and Mike gets lost. Near the end, there’s some talk of fan fiction and “coffee shop fic” which is a whole different thing, but, as per usual, this episode is fantastic.
