All that, plus decoding the hidden message in Duncan Fregredo’s Dark Horse-themed PREVIEWS cover, what IDW bullet dodged this month will hit Greg right between the eyes next month, and much more!

We now return you to the discussion of February 2016’s comics bounty, already in progress. Mike & Greg kick off this episode with Dark Horse and go through the rest of the ‘premier’ publishers. But since that half of the catalog is getting its own episode-sized slot, you KNOW there's going to be some good talk. Aliens - oversized and unredacted! Al Williamson’s Empire Strikes Back! Before DKR? The Coming of the Supermen! Wonder Woman: Earth One! Mirror! Michael Cho vs Neal Adams: Variant Cover Showdown! All that, plus a surprisingly full discussion of the cover work of Sachin Teng, what the ocean ever did for Luke Cage to punch it, Greg apologizes about Chris Bachalo, what ‘paper on board’ actually means, and more!
