    We had both already read some of it, but this month, we caught up on all five issues of the Kieron Gillen/Caspar Wijngaard Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt series! It's about formalism, and is really comics scholarship in the form of a comics story. So we talk about that!

Love the show, but…

Give the people what they want, more Harrison!

CH WRA listener ,

Gotta get my weekly WRA fix!

I’ve been listening to Matt and Chris religiously for years now and WRA is the first thing I look for in my podcast feed on Monday morning. These days, specials like Comics Catch-up and Snack Situation are wonderful mid-week surprises. I always appreciate where they are coming from exactly because our taste in comics and media are not always the same. I might not like everything that they like but I’ve definitely come to appreciate their perspectives as long time comics readers, and you can’t deny their clear love for the medium. I’ve enjoyed listening to them over the years as they (and their circle of comics creator friends) have also grown in the industry.

The best show?
Wish the good bits boys still did checks/recs and reviews on all weekly episodes.
Still, always a good listen (even when they're wrong)
