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.

Levins and Siobhan sit down with Sydney based comic book creator Pat Grant, whose book 'Blue' is constantly recommended on the show as one of the best Australian comics of the last decade. Pat's putting on a live reading of Blue this week at the Yours and Owls festival in Wollongong, so we spoke about what a live comic book reading even is, plus Pat's future comic plans and ideas, the comics he grew up reading and his thoughts on Mad Magazine vs Cracked. 

Blue can be read for free at boltonblue.com and tickets to the live reading are available here: moshtix.com.au/v2/event/blue-live/89365. Listen closely to find out how you can win a double pass!

Holy bonus episode Batman! To celebrate Batman Day on the 17th of September we came up with a list of essential but slightly obscure Batman books that we love. If you've always wanted to expand your Bat-knowledge beyond The Killing Joke, Year One and Arkham Asylum, this episode has everything you need! We even asked a few members of the Kings Comics staff to recommend their favourite Batman stories.
