A slightly different episode today. Pete chats to creator Brad Brooks about EC and MAD creator Harvey Kurtzman, the comic making process, digital comics and World comics (he wrote the book on it after all).

We have Tom join us as we spend the final segment of the show talking all about the giant Avengers Endgame. This is a spoiler filled chat however its not until the end of the episode so fear not… we give you warnings if you haven’t seen the movie. We also review John Tuckers CYDO and Ian goes all gooey over his new favourite writer Jeff Lemire and reviews Underwater Welder and Black Hammer (art by Dean Ormston and Dave Stewart).
