When you think about cartoonist journalists, the first (and probably only) name that comes to mind is almost always Joe Sacco. And for good reason, because the man has been using his cartoonist skills in the service of in-depth reporting for over 20 years. This week, Mike & Greg take a look at “Journalism”, a collection of his shorter reports over a 10-year period from such assignments as Iraq, The Hague, Gaza, India, Malta, and the Caucasus. It’s a 200-page hardcover that provokes more thought and questions in that page count than most OGNs at twice the size. The lads try and come at them from a few different angles, ranging from Sacco’s cartooning chops, how objective a reporter like Sacco can (or should) be, what advantages cartooning has over more naturalistic means of capturing information, why color should or shouldn’t be used in Sacco’s work, who influenced him, and much much more on this week’s episode

As Marvel's First Family returns to your LCS shelves, so to does this show's book discussions return to your earbuds! Mike and Greg dive deep into the first issue of Slott & Pichelli's run on "Fantastic Four", taking its measure both as a single issue but also its place in the grander FF tapestry. Does Slott have the chops to handle The World's Greatest Comic Magazine? What particular aspect of Pichelli's work really made an impression on the lads? Should this really have been an issue of "Marvel Two-in-One"? Which of the other "Fantastic Four" #1's does this share the closest resemblance to? All that, plus favorite issues of the past, how hothead is too hothead for Johnny, series blindspots, and more!
