Kray Z Comics and Stories 409: Which one is better?

It’s a fill in!! Joe is up north and isn’t around to record, so we’ll be using one of the fill in episodes we recorded where Cory!!, Joe and Dangerous Dan Mohr got together at Broadway Pizza to talk comics!

They go over characters that have versions at more than one comic company, and decide which one is better! So, if you want to learn about the differences between Swamp Thing and Man-Thing, or why Deadpool is a knock off of Deathstroke, you’ll love this episode!

OK, you’ll love the episode anyway, but that’s the theme we went with!
