Derek and Tony hold down the fort right before the holiday weekend, and they get into a bit of the holiday spirit with a few of their books they reviewed this week. They also go all across the board with a little bit of everything this week from all aspects of the comic industry.
The guys had some fun talking about about some serious stuff about the animosity against certain comic creators, and others who have taken up the backlash to raise funds to stop online bullying. Tony spoke a bit about what is going on in the books of Marvel, and Derek explained why his life is shitty, literally.

We had a full house for this weeks podcast, with Tony, Linz, Derek, and newbie Josh all in attendance. We had a lot to talk about this week, but that never stops us from talking nonsense for at least the first 5 minutes of any podcast. This week was no different.
Once we got down to business, we had some great discussions about Power Rangers (of course), Infinity Gem theories, and the death of beloved actor Ron Glass. We threw some love at Dirk Manning for the results of his Kickstarter and shared a warm-fuzzy moment about the Dark Crystal. Linz tried to show some love to John Cleese, but she got the smack-down pretty quickly for that (not that we don’t all love John Cleese, but you’ll have to listen for context). The gang also discussed how the Bud Light Superbowl contest is our very own Willy Wonka’s golden ticket.
Linz got indepth with her review of AD: After Death from the powerhouse team of Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire. The book is definitely something to pick up and definitely is pushing the boundaries of comic books in all the best possible ways.
Booze and a Book this week was Saga #40 with a great cocktail called The Robot.
