1621 - Comic Talk - Improv Edition  

We got Comic Talk--right here on Comic Geek Speak!--with a capital 'C' and that rhymes with 'P' and that stands for Peter Rios, who joins us on this episode for a lively chat about about our recent CGS group outing to see his production of 'The Music Man'! After that, we engage in a bit of Shop Talk and Con Talk, congratulate Tom King, mourn Gene Wilder, question whether rumors of 'the death of comics journalism' might be greatly exaggerated, and just generally let it alllll hang out. See what good can come of our original episode plans falling through! (56:55)
