It’s game time and we’re ready to celebrate with all of you by offering a very special Super Bo—uh—Superb Owl episode! We’ve got our Taquitos, Pace Picante Sauce and Stella Artois and we’re ready to talk about the best (and not so best) books of the last two weeks! While we’re not doing a news segment this week, of course we had to discuss the brouhaha over Before Watchmen.
