180 – Impossible Man

Fulfilling a request for Sarah Potter, daughter of my Ok, PANIC! cohort Jeff Potter who is an amazing artist that everyone should check out. Now. Do it. Stop wasting your time with this crap here. I used to buy the Impossible Man one-shots that Marvel put out in the early 90s, and always enjoyed them. …

173 – Ambush Bug

Another request for my League Night co-host, Joe Grunenwald. I’m actually, sadly, really unfamiliar with Ambush Bug, because if there was a character who seemingly should be right down my alley, it’s this one. He’s a funny character who is aware that he’s a comic character, and he was created by Keith Giffen, a writer/artist …
