We’re taking a little time off before recording our reviews of last week’s comics BUT just after Rogue One came out, Levins sat down with Steele Saunders, host of the Steele Wars Star Wars Podcast and I Love Green Guide Letters, for a long argument about Marvel’s Star Wars comics. Steele’s a diehard Star Wars fan, Levins is a devourer of comic books - and each read the new Star Wars comics from a very different angle. Will they put their differences aside long enough to decide which of the Star Wars comics is the best one? Tune in to this special episode to find out!

As they do every week, Levins and Siobhan kick off the show with 'First Things First', the beloved segment in which they review all of last week's new number ones. But then, out of nowhere, they launch a hot brand new segment called 'Second Things Second', in which they review all of last week's number twos as well! And they only make one poo joke!

Siobhan sat down with comic creator Brandon Graham while he was in Sydney for the GRAPHIC festival at The Opera House. Brandon's one of our favourite artists and writers, behind books like Prophet, King City, Multiply Warheads and the Island anthology that he curates with Emma Rios. Together Brandon and Siobhan discuss pornographic comics, the different attitudes towards comics from all over the world and Brandon's interactions with figures from the world of mainstream comics.

We hit that red carpet for the opening night screening of Doctor Strange and Event Cinemas on George St. As soon as the movie was over (we waited for BOTH the end credit scenes dw), we asked a few comic book fans what they thought of the movie. Thanks to Event for having us!

Better late than never! Siobhan's on holiday and Levins was at the Junket un-conference, so he rounded up three awesome special guests to talk about comics with! Crammed into his hotel room, Levins reviews Batman, Archie and Seven to Eternity with Axis of Awesome frontwoman Jordan Raskopoulos, adult star and cosplayer Lucie Bee and cartoonist Eleri Mai Harris, who's also the editor of thenib.com. Following a brief Siobhan cameo, Levins finishes the episode by reviewing 30+ comics by himself. A must listen for anyone who's ever wanted to hear a man lose his mind while saying the word 'continuity' over and over.

We even asked a few members of the Kings Comics staff to recommend their favourite Batman stories.
