Episode 292: Upstate Comic Book Club

This week the Dollar Bin presents to you the Upstate Comic Book Club.  The club is an excuse for comic fans in Greenville, SC to get together and have topical comic discussions.  It’s like a podcast, but without the microphones (most of the time).  We wouldn’t normally record this, but we were saying goodbye to a friend who was moving away and I wanted to get his 2 cents on some things before he left.  Also the whole thing that happened in Batman Inc.
