Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Inside this episode! This week we review Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant from Drawn & Quarterly, Christos Gage and Rebekah Isaac’s Angel & Faith #2, and Ron Marz and Sami Basri’s Voodoo #1. Hot Topic this week is the strange idea that we shouldn’t be talking critically about comics and should instead just be promoting the good, as posited in a post on The Beat this week. This week’s Chick of the Week is phenomenal artist Amy Reeder who everyone should know from her epic Madame Xanadu run, gorgeous cover work, and much anticipated Batwoman arc.
UPDATE: Episode has been re-cut – there should be no audio overlap now. Apologies for any inconvenience!
