This episode was originally broadcast on May 28, 2020. With new comics distribution still cattywampus and no new Previews catalog at time of recording, the lads decide to do some off-the-cuff podding. Mike starts things off soliciting binding advice for his ideal Maxx collection. With so many options (Image run or IDW run? Mix & match? Multiple issue #1's? Separate book for spinoffs?), Greg has his work cut out for him. Not to be outdone, Greg asks for advice on his new Wacom tablet and taps a rich vein of insight on not only the device itself, but printing in general. Do you know what the K in CMYK stands for? Maybe you do, maybe you don't! Listen to today's episode for not only all the above, but the hosts' thoughts on Marvel's Dawn of X titles, the absurdity of calling 1986 a Modern Age of anything, and much more!

This episode was originally broadcast on December 5, 2019. When Joseph Illidge wants to talk to you about Batman, you talk about Batman. Because in addition to starting his career at the creative melting pot that was Milestone Media and honing his editorial chops at such publishers as Valiant, Archia, Lion Forge, and now A Wave Blue World, he was one of the Batman group editors from 1998 to 2001. He was there for No Man's Land, the launch of the Birds of Prey ongoing series, the introduction of Cassandra Cain as Batgirl, the Greg Rucka/Shawn Martinbrough experimental Detective Comics run, and more. For his fifth appearance on the show, Illidge drops by the underground recording studio to chat with Greg about all things Bat: from that No Man's Land tour of duty, to Birds of Prey, to Batgirls Gordon and Cain. He also unpacks last week's tweet about why the time has come for a black Batman.  All that and more on today's episode!

All twelve issues have hit Marvel Unlimited, so it's time for the long-threatened deep dive into the smash hit of 2019: House of X/Powers of X by Jonathan Hickman, Pepe Larraz, and R.B. Silva! Greg's thoughts on the book are well-documented on this show, but what about Mike? Did the book deliver on its promise for him? Why is describing this story as 'upsetting' a multi-layered compliment? How does Hickman stack up against Claremont and Morrison? Goldballs - great mutant or GREATEST mutant? The answer to all those questions and more on this week's episode!

The time between the first comic being published and the first fan discussion of comics can probably be counted in seconds. From their debut in the early days of the last century, these slabs of words and pictures have stayed in lockstep with other pop culture phenomena in generating a fandom so strong that it not only lasts to this day but literally changed the world we live in. Comics fandom was launched from small fanzines distributed by hand amongst locals or by mail to anywhere else, and it was decades worth of those pamphlets that helped build both the fanbase AND the creator pool necessary to help comics eventually breakout of their publishing ghetto. From The Comics Reader to Alter Ego to Squa Tront to The Comics Journal and all points in-between, the fanzines of yesterday built the fandom of today. But what about today's fanzines? That question prompted Mike & Greg to devote today's episode to not only delving into some fanzine backstory, but also check out some of the 21st century crop of fanzines: Bubbles, Strangers, and But Is It Comic Aht?. And though it may have outlasted its fanzine origins, one can't look at the state of comics discussion and criticism in modern times without checking out the Fantagraphics juggernaut of TCJ. So sit back, relax, and listen to the lads wax poetic about other comics fans waxing poetic about their favorite comics in any way they could!

This episode was originally broadcast on April 23 2020.
