Comic Nerds Unite: Comic Book Podcast

I Kill Giants is an amazing comic book that rips at the heart strings and made us all have the feels. Jeremiah, Drew, Marc, and Tim talk about the Joe Kelly and J.M. Ken Niimura crafted comic book from 2008 from Image Comics. The tears almost dropped while we recorded. We also talk about the first two issues of God Hates Astronauts by Ryan Browne which is just as irreverent as the first collected volume. Love Transformers? Love G.I. Joe? Well, then you'll love our long chat about IDW's Transformers vs. G.I. Joe by John Barber and Tom Scioli. Marc pulls out another of his old underground comix, Skull #4 from 1972 to round out the comic nerd uniting for the week.
