It’s been a couple of weeks since the Talking Comics crew was together to record a show. We stepped away for the holidays and in lieu of our regular shows, we released our annual three part Best Comics list. This week we take the time to talk a bit, get caught up, share news and talk some Books of the Week such as: Legenderry, Rocket Girl, Strange Tales, X-Static, The Smell of Chlorine (Le Goût Du Chlore), Avengers NOW, Aquaman and more.

Of course, the BIG topic of this week’s show is the results of our Best Comics of 2013 by both us and by you, our loyal and wonderful listeners and readers.
