Episode 78 - Erase Me, Replace Me: The Avi Ep

78SM.jpg

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.


Two books from March 18, 2015. Plus a Second Opinion, featuring questions answered by a different listener each week, with Aaron Meyers. Whaaaaaat? Yeah, you read that right, Aaron is doing a Second Opinion, which means Andrea's co-host is...her 9 year old son Avi. Truth.

Show Notes:

This week we’re talking about modern mythologies and the way comics today often lift classic character tropes from literature and repackage them for new audiences. Wait. Seriously, mommy? This is what you do with Aaron every week? Can’t we just talk about the comics?


Your intro and outro this week were also picked by Avi. And you have to admit, Aaron, that he did a really great job with the intro especially.


Chances are pretty good we'll be off next week, since both Andrea and Aaron will be in Seattle for Emerald City Comicon. See you there!

Episode 77 - I’ll Be Missing You

77SM.jpg

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.


Two comics from March 11, 2015. Plus a Second Opinion, featuring questions answered by a different listener each week, with Pete Buser.

Show Notes:

This week we’re talking about loss, and the hurt and sacrifice that comes after everything changes. Nothing lasts forever, and that sucks. Bodies grow old, career paths falter, relationships end. But still, we’re here. Gotta get busy living, or get busy dying.


Astro City #21 16:40

The end of one life, and the choice for a new one. Taking steps together or apart. Aaron sees growth, Andrea sees loss. Maybe the two go hand in hand?


Silver Surfer #10 32:05

Loss as an equalizer, but at what cost? With self sacrifice may come immeasurable loss for this pair, or it may be the glue that further binds them together.

Episode 76 - The Robots

76SM.jpg

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.


Two books from March 4, 2015. Plus a Second Opinion, featuring questions answered by a different listener each week, with John Littrel.

Show Notes:

This week’s theme is artificial intelligence, and how it’s rarely the smartest idea as it turns out. We’re talking about two books where the best robotic intentions turn out to be the worst for their human makers. Artificial intelligence is a hot topic these days, in the news and in comics. The singularity is upon us, kids. Don’t be scared.

Episode 75 - We(Mostly Aaron)’re Not Gonna Take It

75All.jpg

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.


Two books from February 25, 2015.


Show Notes:

This week’s theme is eh, screw it. It was supposed to be superheroes and second base but then Aaron went and had a conniption on the internet so all bets are off.


Comics and criticism. Reviews and enthusiasts. And American Splendor. Your welcome.
