We stayed up way too late and ranted about another 40 new issues of comics - highlights include a new Batgirl #1, Archie #10 and the one-two punch of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl/Howard the Duck. Lowlights include the fatigue from reading more DC titles than we ever have in our lives and the fatigue that comes from recording an episode after midnight.
