Episode 45: Why Comics?

So this episode was supposed to be about why we love comics, what is it about the medium that we enjoy so much - but as could have been predicted we wander off on some tangents and also discuss the public's perception of comics and why people don't read comics!



We also have reviews of Morella and the Murders in the Rue Morgue, Batman and Ra's Al Ghul #32, Techjacket #1, Batman Eternal, Exit Generation #2, Batwoman, Outcast #1 and Superman #32.
