They also discuss what they are ordering in the new Previews…but you know Joe will pull the show off topic endlessly. And, they talk about the worst panel in professional comics EVER: http://www.the-isb.com/?p=980
It’s fun, it’s weird and they talk comics…so it’s pretty much like all 175 other episodes.
The second part of Cory!! and Joe talking Vertigo as they go over their five favorite Vertigo books or series, and the Freaking and Geeking they normally do. It’s the second half, so you know that’s where all of the fun stuff is!
You know how I write a whole bunch of stuff here to entire you to listen to the episode? Yeah, I was listening too closely and didn’t take notes, so you know this one is good. Cory!! and Joe talk about Vertigo, the start, how it sold, and what they thought of the different offerings. And all fo the usual yadda yadda yadda. Just listen, OK?
