Episode 36 – Artifacts #11

John and Josh really dig into Artifacts 11 – and they didn’t even spoil the biggest news event of the issue!  John continues with his skepticism about the true Survivor identity, Josh has some good points in his favor . . . and then they discover something that just might make for an interesting twist in Artifacts 13!  It makes sense that the 13th Artifact might hold a big key to the story in Artifacts 13, don’t you think?

We got some mini-crullers from Krispy Kreme on this episode, thanks to the nearby Open Pantry convenience store.

Episode 33 – Where to Start With Witchblade

Top Cow recently posed the question – what issue of Witchblade would you recommend new readers start with?  John and Josh tackle the question with their own thoughts – they would sure love to hear what YOU think!  Afterward, Josh takes a walk through the Top Cow Previews solicitations for shipment in December.

We had tasty (and naughty) doughnuts this week from Copps Grocery Store in Madison.  Glazed croissants and raspberry filled bismarks.  Mmmm.

Episode 31 – Echoes

John and Josh take a close look at Echoes, a 5 issue mini-series (collected in a sweet hardcover) from Top Cow’s Minotaur Press that has received critical acclaim and three Harvey Award nominations.  Josh has the hardback; John has a combo of single issues plus a digital copy of issue #5.  Reviews were mixed – there aren’t too many spoilers, but there’s still a lot to talk about.
