Episode 76 - That Just Cheeses Me - Week of 8/23/17

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of an article predicting the death of comics (specifically Marvel comics). We address it from different angles, such as financial considerations and how our fandom informs our perspective. And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
The Third QI Book of General Ignorance - a book of questions debunked by the QI elves, and a lot of fun for a geek like me
Batman and Harley Quinn - recommended; it has some elements we haven't seen much in animated Batman
Thomas' Big Bag o' Nothing® - busy week, didn't feel like doing much
