Barbarians at the Gate

Download (right-click on link)

After a short vacation, Shawn & Tom return to discuss the post-NYCC news avalanche, including creators behaving badly, the un-shocking return of old comics imprints, new publishers making big steps, and the casting announcement that made Shawn’s day.

On the review side, we go over the first issues of Cage!Green Valley, and Shade the Changing Girl before closing with the recently re-released classic (or is it?!) The Golden Age.

Note: This episode was recorded before the announcement of Rosy Press’ closure and Janelle Asselin’s retirement from comics. We here at the Smorgasbord wish Ms. Asselin well in her future endeavors.
