In this episode we talk about Comic Gate and SDCC. We are joined by Bleeding Cool's Chelsea Bloomfield. Unlike our usual content we decided to leave in adult language due to the emotional nature of the content.
This week Eddie and Joe were lucky enough to be joined by Lew Beitz, Duane Hower and Ryan Tait. Unfortunately Duane's audio didn't save but we were still able to put together a good show for you guys and we look forward to hearing from Duane in the future.
Rick Whitelock is the owner of New Force Comics. He has owned every Golden and Silver Age key you can name during his 30+ year career. Today he tells us all about what it is like to spend 6 figures on a comic, what it was like living through Hurricane Michael, moving your shop to a new state and stories from the road and the hundreds of cons he has worked over the years.
Eddie and I have a conversation about the current events in comicdom. Everything from Death Metal #1 to 80 years of Joker and everything in between. We also have a discussion about how we can be better allies to victims of sexual harassment and talk about the creators Warren Ellis, Scott Allie, Eddie Berganza and Jason Latour who have been accused of this repugnant behavior.

shipping to the small planet
While the Congress of the
Republic endlessly debates
this alarming chain of events,
the Supreme Chancellor has
secretly dispatched three Podcasters, the guardians of
peace and justice in the
galaxy, to talk about the conflict...
