San Diego Comic-Con has come to a close. We talk about the various announcements (or lack thereof) and what stood out amongst the bunch.
Diversity is a popular trend in comics with characters having their gender switched, or mantles being passed to a new generation of heroes that are ethnically diverse. We talk about the seismic change.
We also talk some of the hottest comics out there including Trees, Silver Surfer, Black Widow, and Moon Knight.
Join us as we discuss this and more on tonight's episode!
