Episode 50 | So much James Tynion IV

This week’s episode was recorded on December 20th, 2015. Hosts Mike, James, and Paul do what we always do on this show: Talk about what we read last week and what we’re excited for this week (Transformers vs G.I. Joe #10, Island #5, and Paybacks #4). Following, the gang discusses one of the hardest things to nail down in a conversation: What keeps you reading a book? Whether it’s new #1s, jumping into an ongoing series, or grabbing a graphic novel; all is discussed.

Episode 36 | Comics aren’t for kids anymore!

This week’s episode was recorded on September 6th, 2015. Hosts Mike, Nick, and Paul discuss what they’ve been reading lately and their comic picks (Bitch Planet #5 and Batman #44) in the first half of the episode–WARNING! Batman #43 spoilers! In the second half of the episode, the guys chat about how you recommend comics to people, with a slide into how they research and “catch up” without reading a zillion comics. As our episodes get longer, do you enjoy it? This isn’t part of the episode, we’re really curious! This week’s music was by Miike Snow, CHVRCHES, LIGHTS, and Infinity Shred.

Episode 35 | Horror Comics and Reading in Public

This week’s episode was recorded on August 30th, 2015. Hosts Mike and Nick are joined by a friend of the podcast, James Hahn to talk about horror comics and reading comics in public on top of their comic picks for the week (Plutona #1, Lazarus #19, and Imperium #8). The question on our minds this week is: What makes a horror comic actually scary? This week’s music was by Kanye West, Cities Aviv, 20 Syl, and Infinity Shred.
