Episode 17: Hot Trailers, Hot Summer, Warm-Colored Comics Covers

It’s comics awards season again! Kristin and Thomas talk about the Eisner Awards and how so many of their picks are on that list! They also discuss The Harveys and Valiant’s weird sweep of every single category. Kristin watches the Justice League trailer! They talk about Godzilla and King Kong for WAY longer than is appropriate! Plus their monthly picks! Come on down and get these hot comics takes! And stay tunes after the credits for the greatest pun ever told.

For anyone with opinions about The Killing Joke comic or movie: Thomas recommends The Brave & The Bold #33

RIP Jack Davis

RIP Richard Thompson

(Consider the context of the “get hyped over trailers then give the movie 6/10” conversation – Thomas, who enjoyed Suicide Squad’s trailers, saw the movie well after this recording and rates it 6/10.)
