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!

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.
