When DC’s Injustice video game came out 4+ years ago we spent an entire episode playing it. What will we do now that Injustice 2 is out?
We can’t talk about the things we really want to talk about.
There was an article in The Atlantic about Marvel not know how to run their business. Didja read it? We did.
Speaking of Marvel, they just fired their only gay minority editor.
The drop-off of readers on new titles from issue #1 to issue #4 is staggering.
May’s sales are either excellent or terrible; no in-between.
Dal bought Patrick a Becky Lynch WWE Elite figure.
Dal compares his wrestling-viewing to people who don’t read monthly super-hero comics, and it makes a lot of sense.
We now carry Marty and Sarah Love Wrestling enamel pins!
There will also be more Challengers-designed enamel pins. Shout out to Lapel Yeah!
This Rick and Morty event gets bigger as it gets closer. We’re expecting 2,000 to show up. Two thousand.
