Well we get down and dirty in an extra-sized episode this week—but we cleaned the show up seamlessly if you’re not interested in listening to a show filled with vulgar obscenities! So listen on as we review the week’s books, take Marvel to task for charging $3.99 for what is essentially a 20-page book and DC for not getting Batman Incorporated out on time, and discuss our lowest of low television habits.
