After reading Swamp Thing for Episode 33 we felt compelled to delve into DC Comics Animal Man, and boy were we shocked. Join us as we dig into the Red, the Green, and the Rot. Plus, a listener letter gets us talking about double-ship comics, and a mini-rant on the cost of comics and comic piracy!
Be sure to check out our comic, Hurry The Rabbitoid Knight: Prelude to Epilogue!
