Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #113 - With Special Guest Joseph Carriker

On this episode of the Comic Book Bears podcast, the CBBears are thrilled to welcome to the show Joseph Carriker! Joe has been writing in the gaming industry for over fifteen years and is about to release his first prose novel - Sacred Band from Lethe Press.  Sacred Band is a queer themed super-hero tale which depicts the rise of a loose-knit super powered team dedicated to helping those who fall between the cracks in a world where the golden age of heroes is decades past.

After that Steve, Bryan and Bill spend some time discussing the first episode of Legion, the new X-Men related TV series on FX! (Mini-spoiler - they all liked it! A lot!)
