Borag Thungg, Whatnauts! Time for Drokk!! Judge Dredd The Complete Case Files Vol. 39 is here, and it is the first volume to be released as the same year we record our companion episode!

Join us as we once again grapple with stories of the mighty lawman of Megacity One and why, after so long, they are such slippery things to make succeed!

02:19:40
When is a comics podcast even less of a comics podcast than usual? When it is the first podcast of June 2022, apparently, as Graeme McMillan and Jeff Lester are more than happy to talk about Star Trek, San Diego Comic Con, going to movie theaters, people who have threatened to punch us, unlikely doppelgangers, The Kids in the Hall, James Ellroy, and kinda/sorta there at the fringes, the departure of Joe Quesada from Marvel, and Garth Ennis writing the upcoming Battle Action Special!
