Kristin Lalonde: soft on Starfleet captains, hard on Batman! But wait: IS Kristin Batman? Are YOU? Don't ask Alexa, she's programmed to keep our secrets. Actually, can you order us some Werther's Originals? Thomas and Kristin's picks wound up predicting a whole lot of Eisner winners. Thomas has some games to recommend based on comics properties, plus some great animated films! Did you know a bunch of hot trailers debuted at San Diego Comic Con?? All this and the usual solid picks, now with lots of practical context!

Welcome to Episode 33 for July 2017! Happy Birthday, America! It's a slow news cycle for comics, DC and Marvel haven't done anything stupid of note recently so Kristin and Thomas talk a lot about nostalgia, Newspaper comics, and Archie! They also talk up School Library Journal and Shonen Jump. Plus some pretty great picks!

 

Shonen Jump

-Fun fact: Thomas once wrote them an open letter complaining about their move to all-digital. Now he can’t get enough of his personal subscription. Poor public periodical policy has not obstructed his personal enjoyment!
