In this episode, the team--that's Matt Seneca, Joe McCulloch, Chris Mautner and Tucker Stone--talk about Basil Wolverton's Spacehawk, Marvel Comics' Hawkeye and then they talk about Thor, which maybe has a hawk in it, or a falcon, or at least probably should. ENJOY!

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!

In this unusually themed episode, Joe McCulloch, Matt Seneca and Tucker Stone recap their experiences at the 2012 Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival, which the three of them had attended earlier that day. As they had little opportunity to recap their purchases--they had not read them, obviously--the discussion focuses on interpersonal concerns and general convention related topics. Excelsior? They thought so.

In this episode, you get to hear Chris Mautner, Matt Seneca and a sickly Joe McCulloch discuss Charles Burns and his comics. Then, right in the middle of those fine gentlemen talking about Noah Van Sciver's The Hypo, Tucker Stone shows up and jumps in like the room is a mattress. And then they all talk about Young Albert, by Yves Chaland. And then it goes classical, with Matt bringing the question to Winsor McCay and the littlest of his Nemo! Get some bananas, friend-o. You're gonna need the potassium!
