Today's episode takes Mike and Greg across all manner of comics! The discussion starts of with Francesco Francavilla's Black Beetle. This story is a true artistic accomplishment, but does story take a backseat to visuals? From there the talk shifts toward the newly solicited X-Men: Battle of the Atom hardcover. It carries a heavy pricetag, and the guys ponder whether or not the second-act storytelling is worth the cost of admission. To wind things down, the conversation turns towards Francis Manapaul and Brian Buccellato's departure from The Flash. After such an impressive run, will DC hand the title off to? And what really keeps us reading a title: the characters or the creators?
