Well folks—this is it! This is our last weekly show, but we will be back on a monthly basis. Why bother you ask? Gosh, we hope you aren’t asking that! But we do love producing the show and we didn’t want to give that up. Jerry and Don have a lot to discuss outside of the weekly comic books—from Don going to digital only comic book reading to Jerry’s thoughts on next year’s superhero movie costumes. We hope you enjoy our extra-long final weekly episode and we really hope you come back for a listen next month!
