The latest "Quarantina" episode of the Comic Book Bears Podcast finds the CBBoys talking about four books that are currently available for free on ComiXology. The virtual spinner rack for this episode include the first issues of Huck (Image), Vagrant Queen (Scout), The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion (Dark Horse) and The Seeds (Berger Books/Dark Horse). Apart from that there is some talk of comic shops re-opening, a lengthy MST3K/Rifftrax tangent and some tea being spilled.

This time on the Comic Book Bears Podcast, there is a whole lotta comic related news talk and we still get in some new and new-to-us books! So hit download or play and hear us talk about Ruby Rose's departure from Batwoman, HBO Max's release of the "Snyder Cut" of Justice League, Youth from ComiXology Originals, Trish Trash: Rollergirl of Mars from Papercutz and much much more.
Unfortunately as we are getting used to both video and audio, there are some issues with this episode. From a technical standpoint, Caleb is really low in the mix. From a performance standpoint, Bill stammers and "um ahh"'s a lot more than usual. Still we thought there was good discussion to be had here.
