We reviewed more comics this week than we did in our first two episodes combined, so to keep things orderly we used a timer and diplomatically gave each comic just two minutes of review time. Enjoy this slightly more frantic episode of Serious Issues and pray that we don't start using a timer just to read the rapidly increasing stack of comics we read each week!
