Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby

Download (right-click on link)

It’s Tom’s turn to drive down Fury Road as we discuss Zack Snyder’s recent tragedy and the uglier side of fandom, a new power couple rising in the industry, the August Previews bringing us unintentional self-plagiarism, the strategic mistake that is Generations, an unusual platform for the return of Scott Snyder’s Wytches, and more!

We also review The Normals #1, Wanderlust Blues #1, Colleen Coover’s Small Favors (in which Tom breaks not one but two Smorgasbord records!), and volume 1 of The Unbelievable Gwenpool.

    Thanks for the recommendation regarding The Unbelievable Gwenpool. I started reading it on Marvel Unlimited and it lives up to all of your comments. It is so laugh out loud funny. I have a hard time believing that Marvel is actually publishing a title like this and that it is still around after 16 issues.
