Cape Town Community Podcast: Ep. 041 “The Late, Late Show”


Originally published on February 21, 2012.

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.
