The episode you’ve been waiting all year for! At just shy of three (informative and entertaining) hours, we’re giving you enough to listen to as you take down the tree, wait for the Stairmaster at the recently clogged gym, take back those “thoughtful” gifts, and so much more over the long holiday weekend.
We discuss the best books (new and ongoing), writers, artists, mini-series, one-shots and more—and damn—it was a great year for comic books folks! We also share some our favorite clips from our first year of episodes and get a few digs in on the books we didn’t love.
