Tuesday Night Comics Podcast 115 – Are we a little late this week or a little early for next week?...

Big news! Billy is a dad! Because of that, the email exchange below almost replaced the podcast this week. But Billy and Dave managed to sneak into the studio during one of Billy’s daughter’s naps, and here we are with a new episode! Is it a little late for this week or a little early for next week?

But before you enjoy the podcast, please enjoy the following email exchange between Billy, Dave, Nick (occasional Tuesday Night Comics guest host) and Bryan (Billy’s cohost on The Billy and Bryan Show) about The Killing Joke, Alan Moore, John Byrne and Supergirl.

Tuesday Night Comics Episode 76 – 6/17/15 New Comics Previews...

With all the comic book companies holding back on their big announcements until San Diego Comic Con, it’s a fairly slow news week, but that news that’s come is good news: we are finally seeing the publication of Tim Sale and Jeph Loeb’s Captain America: White. The guys both play the Twenty, picking out what new comics they would buy on a $20 budget, and for a second week in a row, have a hard time sticking to only $20. Plus, reviews of Batman Volume 6: Graveyard Shift, a bunch of Convergence and Secret Wars books and more! http://ia801509.us.archive.org/24/items/TuesdayNightComics76/Tuesday%20Night%20Comics%2076.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: iTunes | Android |...
