  • Cory!! rants about a jerk retailer at the New York ComiCon
  • Is Cory!!’s comic box actually Laura Palmer in disguise?
  • We have discovered that Joe and Cory!! disagree on the Flash Gordon cartoon of the late 70’s. Joe is wrong, of course, and Cory!! can say that, because he writes these.
  • How and why Garth Ennis got the Punisher right.
  • They recommend the collected Neil the Horse and discuss the creator Arn Saba/Katherine Collins
  • Cory!! discusses the state of EC reprints
