Chris and Joe kick off this episode by talking about the Oscar nominees for Best Animated Short, which was really timely and topical when they recorded it but is old news now since Chris couldn’t be bothered to edit and upload this thing in time. Thankfully, lots of comics are discussed afterwards, including Snowpiercer, Celebrated Summer, Judge Dredd, Cannon (briefly) and Satellite Sam. So it’s not a total loss.

Continuing our discussion from last week (sorta), Tucker, Joe and Chris delve into a discussion of books that lots of other people liked a whole but they were kind of meh about. Or at least not as enthused as all these alleged other people, whomever they might be. At some point they also start talking about the Star Wars novels and Chris is rather shocked to learn that Chewbacca is dead. This is how we like to spend our leisure time, people.
