This week's show has a weird energy, and we're clearly tired so, uh... fair warning. On the show, we talk about this week's new comics and graphic novels, and then get into why having a community is so important for us... and how it can be so important for YOU.

We really did! Although we had to cut the audio of that section, because it involved a lot of silent video on our streaming show.

If you want to see what that looked like, you can head over to the link below to watch us slice something some folks have purchased for $700. (I promise, we have a VERY good reason.)

Also, you can listen to us talk about all the awesome new comics this week, and get up to our usual weekly shenanigans!
