Episode 44: Darkseid Is. Ava Too.

From Wonder Woman #12 (New 52), by Brian Azzarello, Cliff Chiang, Matthew Wilson, and Jared K. Fletcher

With ALA Annual taking place in New Orleans this summer, Kristin and Thomas reminisce about meeting there in 2011, plus convention observations in general. Student protests and repatriation get free, informative comics treatments.  A creator objecting to misuse of his intellectual property gets labeled as “the establishment” by… an establishment. March pollen ruined Thomas’s throat, but the picks are still fresh! Check in to your nearest boom tube and have a listen, won’t you?
