I am NOT Tim Hamilton the famous adult film star! Just wanted to get that out of the way. The Great Dante Readthrough is not great. It's INCREDIBLY-SUPER great! I specifically look forward to the episode where they talk about MY fill in issue (shamless plug)! Seven stars (and a moon)!

Just like hanging out with my best friends reading a comic!

This is the perfect pod for a pandemic when I’m missing my friends and community. You should absolutely pick up this series and read along with Edie and Simon!
