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!

The Vengaboys tour is over, and while Levins's valiant efforts to read 20 comics in one morning are notable, Siobhan read way more of last week's new issues AND two trades! Siobhan wins, sucked in Levins. Get back on that Vengabus.

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.

Levins and Siobhan reunite after a week apart (thanks so much to Nick Mason for filling in last week!) to review the last week in comics, and to discuss the most serious of issues, including death traps, superhero make out sessions and lame male nudity.

Stuck in Melbourne and far away from Siobhan, Levins is forced to record this week's episode with one of the hosts of an infinitely more popular podcast than Serious Issues: Nick Mason from The Weekly Planet! Together they review MOST of the comics that came out last week, plus Siobhan makes a little cameo.
