Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor horrible recording equipment (sorry folks, this episode might prove a bit echo-y) will stop Shawn and Tom from talking about comics.

In this episode, we talk at length about the first issues of Nameless (and whether or not Grant Morrison gets too much credit when he’s being intentionally obscure), Cluster (and what makes science fiction “bad”), D4VE (and what makes Science Fiction Awesome!), and the pros and cons of the first five issues of Birthright. Plus DC’s post-Convergence titles, the good-idea-bad-title that is A-Force, Spider-Man’s cinematic future, and Sana Amanat promotion.

Tom Shapira is a carbon-based life from the planet earth. He was formed in the year 1985 AD by two loving parents. He is also an MA student of English Lit. at Tel-Aviv University, Israel, where he feels proud to be the first student to graduate with a BA by writing a paper about the works of Grant Morison. In his native tongue, Tom is a staff writer for Israel's leading comics blog and an occasional participant in the blog's bi-weekly podcast. He spends too much time, money and thought on Comics (especially the works of Grant Morison, Alan Moore, Warren Ellis and Garth Ennis) and his friends and family wish he would stop. He is not going to.
