This week, we welcomed a new member into Near Mint family with the arrival of Theodore Maverick Cason-Bertwell, but not even an 8-day-old baby could keep Dan off the Mic. The boys actually read some comics this week and they’re anxious to talk about them.
The Bean-o-Rama starts with Top o’ the Pile as we get caught up on Batman, The Walking Dead and She-Hulk. There’s plenty for you casual fans too as we get Nason’s take on Avengers: Age of Ultron and give props to Marvel/Fandango for their cross-pollinating digital comics offer.
Later, it’s off to Riverdale, where we take Archie Comics to task for their misguided Kickstarter campaign, but reluctantly express interest in Afterlife with Archie and the forthcoming Archie #1 by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples.
Finally, our Can o’ Beans runneth over with Batman: Endgame, and numerous FCBD books, including 2000 AD, Fight Club, Hip Hop Family Tree and more. Listen to find out what outrageous claims we make to read for next episode.
