Don, Al and Dallas are joined once again by Don’s daughter, Holly, as we finally return to traditional comic book talk. We have some technical difficulties (Don’s a little hard to hear, so turn up the volume LOUD!!)
Don reviews the new Popeye #1 by IDW and reminisces about the character, and he discovers an indie book from the 90’s called Optic Nerve. We go on to discuss the merits of Free Comic Book Day, and ask the question: is it bringing in a younger audience to local comic shops?
Al talks romance comics from the 60’s, particularly Young Love featuring art by the master, John Romita Sr.
Dallas gushes about the masterpieces that is Chris Claremont’s run on Uncanny X-Men and reviews Rick Remender’s first handful of Uncanny X-Force issues.
Larry Marder’s Tales of the Beanworld gets an analysis, and Al finally reads Asterios Polyp!!!!
