119 - Mixing Our Metaphors Again - Week of 7/4/18

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the current state of the comics industry. We start with a couple of news bites from recent weeks, and off we go down the rabbit hole of the comics world. We have opinions, not surprisingly, and a snarky good time was had by all (even in the blooper after the credits). And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
2000AD Sci-Fi Special (2000AD) & Rivers of London: Water Weed (Titan)
80 Years of Superman, pre-Wedding stuff, and other IRL bidness
The Greatest Adventure (Dynamite) - collection of the recent crossover story of all of the creations of Edgar Rice Burroughs
Doctor Who on Twitch - enjoyed re-watching the 3rd, getting into the 4th

And apologies to Walmart for the beating we kind of gave them this week - we're still cool with the sponsorship idea if you are, Walmart ;-)
