The Comic Book Bears are back with their first post-election episode (recorded 11/12/2020.) This one is admittedly a bit of a hodgepodge. Bryan, Steve and Bill talk about their post-election experiences out of the gate. And the comic book talk is fairly varied. Steve discusses Maids, an new original graphic novel from Fantagraphics by Katie Skelly about the real life Papin Sisters murders. Bryan gives us an X of Swords update. Bill fills us in on Laurel and Hardy Meet The Three Stooges #1 published by American Mythology. Also - though it might be a bit more effective on video - Bill and Steve unbox their most recent DCBS boxes and talk about their newly received comics. Throughout the rest of the episode you will also hear about the promotion of Marie Javins to Editor in Chief at DC Comics, Cross Over #1 (Image), Origins #1 (Boom!), tv series on NXIVM and Scientology, the awfulness of corporate speak, Bill watching things off of Steve's Plex server, the Woofs of the Week and much more!
