With 2021 being a banger year for comic books, we invited som…
 
We say goodbye to 2021 with our final conversation on The Second Life of Doctor Mirage.

His book is a must-read for all comic book maniacs, and it was an absolute honor to chat with him about this gra…
 
After two years, we returned to the Baltimore Comic-Con and it was everything we needed it to be. We saw some friends, we met new friends. We bought some old comics, we bought some new comics.
