In this episode, Chris Mautner, Matt Seneca, Joe McCulloch and Tucker Stone get all twisted and torn up. First they talk about Manga Sagawa-San, then they talk about Shonen Jump. Then they talk about Humanoids new one, Eros Gone Wild. (This is a weird episode.) Then they talk about Lone Wolf and Cub for a minute or two. Then Chris pitches the Picturebox manga line to everybody. Then the episode goes off the rails completely. Please accept our strongest apologies!

Opening with a brief discussion of Tolkien in the classroom, the boys settle in for a conversation about Marti's Calvario Hills, one of the finest installments in Fantagraphics sorely missed Ignatz line. Then they talk Heavy Metal, their own experiences with Heavy Metal, and what its like, being a young man. Then it gets all Gasoline Alley: Frank King, Drawn and Quarterly and how we deal with feelings: we feel 'em! It's a hoss, and you're the hossman. Bring your own stool, friend!
