Okay—this show is late, which inspired the title of the show. Don is on his lonesome this week but he’s got the rundown on a bevy of new books that have hit the comic shelves over the last two weeks. He also spends a few minutes talking about getting ordained, Robert Kirkman’s criticism about superhero comics being stale, and AMC’s new series Comic Book Men.
