The benefits of recording on a weekend begin to show as we manage to get the podcast recorded and edited within 24 hours!
Join us as we discuss the latest comic and nerdy happenings, what we’ve been reading and a variety of group titles as we analyse the dynamics and variations that occur in various JLA-style analogues. These titles include The Authority, The Boys, The Pro and Supreme Power.
- Comic Book Comics #6 – Fred van Lente, Ryan Dunlavey
- Zoe gave a talk at the final ALTC viral conference for the year and discusses her first experience with public speaking.
- Alisa Krasnostein from Twelfth Planet Press and Galactic Surburbia (and supporter of wolverina.net and How I Got My Boyfriend to Read Comics) won a World Fantasy Award. Congrats!

- Post-Flashboot direct market sales are good. We still don’t really care. (via Warren Ellis)
