Well, we originally were going to record one of our comic book "critique" shows but just weren't feeling it when we got on the mic. So Billy Z and Steve decided to hang out for an hour and 15 and talk about a lot of topics. Our first exposure to comics. What would the JLA and Avengers line ups look like if we were writing the books? What are we looking forward to in 2020? What cartoons from our youth have stood the test of time? What are our current cartoon favorites? The West Coast Avengers! The New Teen Titans! Infinity Inc. and the JSA! Battle of the Planets! Rick and Morty! Outer Darkness! White Trees! Event Leviathan! There is a lot in this one! (Steve even curses at one point!) As this episode is being released on Thanksgiving Eve, you might need something to play during your car ride or to distract you from your conspiracy theory spouting uncle or a soundtrack for your tryptophan crash! We might fit the bill just fine with this offbeat episode!

This time around the CBBears are thrilled to welcome the creators of Signal and Silence, Chris Lopez and Randy Wyatt. It is a 100 page graphic novel about three college friends -Jimmy, Nica and Dorch- all of whom are haunted by their shared history at an evangelical college. These days, Jimmy and Dorch run a comic store and run role-playing game sessions out of the basement. But over the span of several days, vital secrets are spilled that threaten to tear their bonds apart forever. Signal and Silence began life as a play written by Randy which Chris adapted into comic form. Listen in as Steve and Bill interview these handsome fellas about the project and many other things, including Chris's work with the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE) and Randy's feelings about a classic children's novel!
