  • A dispute about the Kirby Archives
  • Tons of spoilers about The West Wing

Kray Z Comics and Stories 156: 1997!

Joe has dug up an old invoice, and he and Cory tell stories of the old comic shop and the comics that came out back in 1997!

They also discus:

  • One of the few times Cory cared about the character Cable
  • Some information on Claypool publishing
  • Information on one of Cory’s favorite series: The Invisibles

  • Silver Surfer comics of the late 90’s

The issue you will have is that Cory and Joe talked for SO long that we’re cutting this episode is half, so this is part 1!
