Episode 145: Backpak

Podcast cover

After 7 weeks off we've forgotten how to do everything. Mainly we forgot how to write up all the comics we talked about in this episode. And by we I mean Levins. Also by forgot I mean I just didn't feel like doing it ok? So up the top you've got First Things First, then we do some DC books, then Marvel and oh yeah I forgot to read my Image comics for seven weeks so don't expect much from that section. You know what we haven't forgotten though? How to make more dick jokes than any other comic book podcast on the market. And that's the Serious Issues guarantee! Enjoy!

After 7 weeks off we've forgotten how to do everything. Mainly we forgot how to write up all the comics we talked about in this episode. And by we I mean Levins. Also by forgot I mean I just didn't feel like doing it ok? So up the top you've got First Things First, then we do some DC books, then Marvel and oh yeah I forgot to read my Image comics for seven weeks so don't expect much from that section. You know what we haven't forgotten though? How to make more dick jokes than any other comic book podcast on the market. And that's the Serious Issues guarantee! Enjoy!
