Episode 321: Top Graphic Novels of 2013

Join Adam, Shawn and Tee as they discuss their top graphic novels of this year! Sparked by The Washington Post article about the Top 10 Graphic Novels of 2013, the gang agrees with a few of the choices but is surprised by some of the titles that were omitted. Their favorites include The Fifth Beatle, Hip Hop Family Tree, Battling Boy, and March. Jump in and join the fun. And, if you don’t get it, you don’t get it.

Discussion: SPX 2012 Reviews Part 1

Yes, you heard that right! This is only Part 1 of Adam and Shawn’s SPX review-a-palooza. Either they bought way too many comics or their reviews are way too long and rambly. Maybe both! Sit back, relax and enjoy as Adam and Shawn tell you all about some awesome mini-comics that they, umm, like, totally enjoyed and stuff!
