We spend a great deal of the show discussing the works of Jonathan Hickman this week but make sure to also get in enough time for some Muppet love. Wait—that doesn’t sound right at all. Okay, towards the end of the episode Don gives the rundown on The Muppets for Jerry. But worry not if you are hear to listen to comic talk! There’s are plenty of good reads that we want to share with you dear listeners. It’s time to get things started, it’s time to—well, you know.
