It’s right after Christmas. Or before Christmas. We’re not sure since there were recording problems, but we talk about the end of the year in comics shops, other places and a whole bunch of Geeking. There was not real theme, but it’s a lot of comic book talk, so…
The tradition continues, Festivus is here, and Joe and Cory!! share their annual Airing of Grievances! They do an all Freaking episode, and we warn you, they’ve got a lot of problems with you people!
