X-POSITION: Phoenix, Upstarts & More Tear Up Bowers & Sims' "X-Men '92"
Inside this episode! We review Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan’s Conan The Barbarian #1 and Mike Mignola, John Arcudi, and James Harren’s B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth: The Long Death #1 - both by Dark Horse! We then talk to writer and artist of the new graphic novel Friends With Boys, the lovely Faith Erin Hicks, who owes her career to the internet…or so she says! Lastly, Sue gives Chick Of The Week to one of the longest running DC supeheroines around! We also spend a good amount of time talking about my recent She Has No Head! column which seemed to break the internet. Good times!
Apologies in advance for the audio quality in this episode. My headset broke literally while we were recording and as a result the audio quality is not up to snuff. Hope it’s tolerable.
