Bonus Episode - Superhero Comics with View From the Gutters

Welcome to a very special bonus episode, in which Merri and Missy discuss superhero comics with Joe and Tobiah of View From the Gutters, a comic book club podcast. We’re talking about iconic origin stories, Doctor Strange casting, Batman after-school specials, and more—and if you happen to like it, check out View From the Gutters too. We think you’ll like ‘em.

Did we enjoy them? Are our minds changed forever? Will we read nothing but superhero comics from now on? You'll have to listen to find out. WARNING: This episode is explicit (lots of swears) and contains heavy spoilers for all of these books. You'll probably want to read them (or not care) before diving in.
