Chase and Joe are back for a new round of reviews, interviews, bickering, and general nonsense. And it’s been a while since she’s been on, but now we’re excited to welcome J.A. Micheline back to the podcast!

JAM has been keeping busy with school, but she’s also had a few pieces published in the Guardian: one about the legitimacy of comic books as literature in the wake of World Book Day, and the other about Marvel’s ongoing issues regarding diversity.

They’re both great reads and you should check them out, but today we are here to talk about comics!

Our book club discussion brings us back to Blacksad, which you might remember us discussing with the Junior Braves Of The Apocalypse team back in 2015. We were more than happy to revisit this amazing collection with a close friend and we think you’ll really appreciate the new episode!

And then, for the Weekly Review, Joe and Chase stop attempting to punish each other and pick comics they actually like!

And in the latest edition of the Canon of Comics, Joe and Chase honor the late Bernie Wrightson by discussing one of his classic horror shorts recommended by cartoonist Steve Lieber, the terrifying JENIFER.

We hope you enjoy the continuation of our newest reboot on the Reboot Podcast, long may it last.

Chase and Joe are back for a new round of reviews, interviews, bickering, and general nonsense. We’re proud to welcome longtime friend and first-time guest on the podcast, Ardo Omer!  We’re going to talking about her recent writings for Teen Vogue and Slate, as well as her regular contirobutions to Women Write About Comics and Book Riot.

Apologies in advance! We had some weird connection issues in parts in the episode. I edited out parts that I could without getting rid of key parts of the conversation. Contact us if you find some parts that are egregious, please!

Ardo is pretty awesome. She likes us. She decided to join in on our Batman-centric episode in which we discuss the Bat, whole Bat, and nothing but the Bat. That’s right, we’re discussing the Bat-Man-And-Woman. 

While the hosts keep the regular programming in line with G.C. state of mind, Ardo is discussing the Greg Capullo and Scott Snyder Gordon-centric epic, Superheavy.
