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.

Prior to the conclusion of the year, Tucker, Joe and Chris got together so that Tucker could bitch and moan and Chris could point out that he's a real jerk and Joe kept just unleashing pure comic gold. Then they listened to Chris talk about Boxers and Saints for like 30 full years.

Everybody got in the boat for this one, a needlessly overstructured barking of The Best In Comics, circa 2013. Come one, come all!

Jack Thomas Chick is the writer and/or artist of several thousands of pages of comics. Of course, it is a product of extraordinary privilege to address, with such capriciousness, works that have contributed so much to the disruption and rancor haunting the burdens of so many lives. It is 5 o’clock in the morning. Nobody listened to this episode in full before it was posted.
