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 talk about why they pick up the books as monthly comic. It might be the nostalgia, it might be the extras in the comic that won’t be in the trade or any number of other reasons.

They also discuss:

The death of Mean Gene Okerland

Joe and Cory!! discuss wrestler related restaurants. No, really. It was a thing.

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

What makes the Spider-Man comic work

Joe gets another chance to return to the podcast

Joe updates us on his eBay and how prices have dropped.

All of this, the usual shenanigans and much, much more!
