Kray Z Comics and Stories 388: What Monthly Comics Do We Buy?

As Joe is starting to get back into the groove after a month on the injured reserve, he and Cory!! discuss the monthly comics they still pick up and envoy, but may not talk about as much as the new comics they spotlight or the trades and hardcovers they discuss.

They also discuss:

The death of Mean Gene Okerland

They also discuss their New Year’s Eve, showing what party animals they are. SPOILER: There was no party.
