126 - Little Black Teardrop of His Emo Life - Week of 8/29/18

The Fellowship is pleased to present a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Batman story arc entitled A Death in the Family. It was a controversial one, with a new concept in reader participation and a slightly darker take on the Joker. There's a lot to cover on this one, and we add our usual flair, as well as our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Catching up on Detective, Strangers in Paradise XXV, Dungeons & Dragons Evil at Baldur's Gate - all fun series
Not reading, but catching up on TV - The Flash & Orange is the New Black, with Gotham in the on-deck circle
Where We Live (the fundraiser comic for the Las Vegas Shooting victims), Fairest (the Fables spinoff)
Comic Book Implosion (a book about DC's "Implosion" which we talked about back in episode 115)
