112 - Somebody's Mother is Listening to This - Week of 5/16/18

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of comics titles that we would recommend to new or lapsed readers. The idea here is not to just list our favorite titles - we're trying to find titles that will draw in folks who don't normally go for comics. We even talk a bit about how that works, and we get a little off track at one point (shocking, right?). And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
The films of Christopher Mihm (at least some of them) are now available on Amazon Prime Video - very entertaining and weird
Free Comic Book Day was a blast; also praise for the Hit-Girl series
Shock Rockets - cool series from a few years back
More FCBD love, in terms of the free comics themselves; also a book called Funny Face!: An Amusing History of Potato Heads, Block Heads, and Magic Whiskers
And the "get off my lawn" tangent of the week :-)

We hope you find some comics here in our list that can help people get into the wonderful world of comics :-)
