This was so not the show that we thought it was going to be. What started out as a casual comment about Blackish, turned into a pretty deep dicussion about the show and it's place in Black Culture.
The conversation moved to a wide variety of topics after that...
We talking about BarBQ Bob from the more recent Episode of The Walking Dead.
There was an anaylsis of the path the DC Comics and Marvel has set for their future on TV and theaters.
Geek Soul Brother gave his spoilerless review of John Wick.
It was just a really lively discussion all around.

It's Monday night and that means a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio! We're back talking comics. There's been a lot of brand new comics debuting over the past few weeks, and some very high-profile ones at that. We'll be discussing....
Angela: Asgard's Assassin - The character debuted in Spawn, but now is over at Marvel. After a stint in Guardians of the Galaxy, the character headlines her own series.
Bitch Planet - The most talked about comic of the past week. This comic shows how you can take on social and political issues within an entertaining story.
Deathlok - The classic character who was an integral part of last season's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets its own series.
Secret Six - We loved the pre-New 52 version of the series, but how does this new team and relaunch stack up?
So join us this Monday and let us know your thoughts about these new series! You can call in or Tweet us your thoughts @graphicpolicy

After a few weeks off this Monday Graphic Policy Radio is back for a brand new episode on Monday November 24. The show will air LIVE at 10pm ET. We have a very special episode with return guest Scott Kaufman, who you might know as SEK.
We’re many weeks into the new fall television season. One of the new trends is television shows based on comic book series with a half dozen airing in the 2014-2015 season, many of those based on DC Comics comic books. One of those is Constantine which airs Fridays on NBC. Based on the Vertigo series Hellblazer and the New 52 series Constantine, the show follows the mast of the dark arts John Constantine. We’ll discuss the series (and we’re sure much more).
Scott is the proprietor of the AV Club’s Internet Film School and an associate editor at The Raw Story. He also writes for Lawyers, Guns & Money, podcasts, and is an expert on Game of Thrones.
So listen in LIVE, and join the conversation too. We want to hear what you have to say, so call us at (619) 768-2952 or Tweet us your thoughts to @graphicpolicy.

Author Mary Barr joins me this week to talk about her books. We'll discuss her novellas, novels & juvenile fiction titles.
From her novella The Publisher:
Each day with trust and good faith we send our beloved children off to school. We assume they arrive safely, enjoy time with their friends and learn their lessons. We think we know where they are and who they’re with. But life can change in a heartbeat, so can circumstances, places and people and, as a result we never remain the same. Change is often good, sometimes bad, but always constant. The Publisher takes you into the lives of the Smelt family. Joe, Suzanne and their two children, six year old Libby and thirteen year old Connor.
It is a normal school day just like any other, until Joe – the publisher – begins reading a manuscripts. In the manuscript he learns that his children are not at school. They have been kidnapped and are being held hostage until the ransom is paid. Each detail of what he must do is precisely laid out as another page of the manuscript unfolds. Suzanne has done someone wrong and, if she can right the situation her children will go free, if not, they will die. And so, they sit and wait for the knock on the door and the next installment of the manuscript that holds within its pages their children’s fate.
