194 | Doctor Strange And Books With No Plan To Read

Al started the episode off with a rant about the Marvel executive who says diversity may have alienated readers, which led into a discussion on the price of comics today, trade paperbacks and the culture of comics. Unfortunately, all of that is gone, because Don trashed the first half of the episode before it was produced. Sorry about that.

The surviving half discusses books that we didn’t plan on reading, but ended up liking anyway. And Doctor Strange, there was a lot about him.

Happy New Year! Don and Al bring in 2012.

Rook’s off the grid, Dallas’ voice of reason is absent, and Al and Don go more free form than normal as they talk about things they know very little about (with no fact checking thanks to Don).

MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Bryan Yeatter
Who, besides providing the music, also wrote Cinema of the Philippines.
