Episode 336 - How KRS-One is Like Wonder Woman f/ Afua Richardson  

Afua Richardson joins us for this week's show, and while you may know her as the cover artist of Black Panther: World of Wakanda and artist of Genius from Image Comics among other comics projects, she's also worn many, many other hats including singer, voice actress, beatboxer, floutist, and the list goes on. Also, she's on a first-name basis with KRS-One, which obviously makes her one of our favorite guests. In addition to all that, we also talk about taking breaks from work, adding symbolism to art, her X-Men '92 variant cover, and much more! Plus, we take a listener question that relates to Every Story Ever!

With the holidays just around the corner, we asked the hosts of the HARK! podcast, RJ and Ian, to come on the show to talk about their ever-growing list of Christmas, holiday and winter songs! Plus, we requested that they go over Pitchfork's list of the "50 best holiday songs of all time" with us, to see just how wrong they got it.

Episode 330 - Listing Lanterns (Panel President Special)  

We thought about renaming our character-ranking segment after the events of last week, but, well, we're not the ones who suck, so we're back this week with a Panel President special! We get through a whole big list of Green Lanterns, take aim at some retcon characters and determine whether some characters really are overrated.

Episode 328 - The Mummy-Scorpion King Pendulum f/ Benito Cereno  

It's Halloween, and that can only mean one thing: Benito Cereno joins us once again (or does he?)! He talks with us about the webcomic he launched this year with artist Joel Priddy, The Mummy's Sabbatical, as well as mummies in general, monster categories, spooky movie recommendations, the worst candy, the history of zombies and much more! Plus, we add five more killer characters to the Panel President list!

Every Story Ever Special: October 2016
