Episode 43 | The Dissection of “Issue vs. Trade”

This week’s episode was recorded on November 1st, 2015. Mike is out this week and in his stead, Nick, James, and Paul manage to create a pretty stellar episode of the podcast. The chat what they read since the last episode, and move into their comic picks: Ninjak #9, Monstress #1, and Justice League: Darkseid War: The Flash. The main topic of this week’s episode circles around how you distinguish between buying comics in single issue or buying comics in collected editions. This leads into a discussion about variant covers where Paul doesn’t care, James loves the covers for himself sometimes, and Nick goes insane for a small moment.
