Episode 20: Ask Us About Our Feminist Agenda



Trick or treat! Our Halloween episode is out just in time for Thanksgiving week! (Tom Turkey’s first time in the editing chair.) Kristin talks about comics as gifts. Thomas plugs Halloween ComicFest. Wonder Woman gets celebrated by the UN. Chelsea Cain got harassed for a dumb reason. Both of us respond to the mailbag. All of this, plus our always-solid three picks each – this is a packed episode, so spare us your eggs and go attack some miser’s house.

RIP Jack Chick + Steve Dillon
