Mike is joined by Nick and Tia this week to ask the question: what was the first comic you read by your favorite creative team (or creator)?
Tia and Kait join Mike to discuss re-reading comics, why we do it, why we don’t, and how, for some of us, it helps enrich our comic book reading experience.
Mike, Kait, and Kara sit down with friend of the show, David Pepose to talk about his new book Going to the Chapel.
This episode was recorded on December 2nd, 2018! While Mike was away at a gaming convention, Paul held the reigns for this week’s show with Kait and Nick in tow.
