Hope everyone is enjoying their extra long weekend!  How about a new podcast to make the weekend even more exciting!  In our new podcast we discuss 1993 and comics  Remember that year?  We do!  Comics were coming off some amazing numbers, selling millions of comics per issue (like Claremont/Lee’s X-Men #1).  Image rose with Wildcats and Youngblood.  Then the bottom fell out.  From variant covers, to speculators, to distributors, to bad stories and quality, the comic book industry died.  Comic shops closed, numbers declined, it was not a good time for comics.  But then it made a slow come back thanks to books like Ross/Waid’s Kingdom Come.  Comics as an industry are bigger than ever now, thanks in large part to the success on the big screen.  Join us as we discuss all of the above and more!   You can click here and give us a listen, or download us on iTunes:
