They also discuss:

  • Joe bailing on the show when he gets rich.
  • How does Comic Shop News keep being published?
  • What is Final Order Cut Off and why does it matter?
  • What does being part of a major corporation have to do with publishing comics?

They also have the usual shenanigans, too much corsstalk, Cory!! blathering on and on, and much, much more!
