Shawn and special guest Hannibal Tabu (komplicated.com) discuss the lack of Black comic book writers in the Big 2 comic publishers (Marvel and DC Comics), race in comics, the comics market, and the Black Super Hero Algorithm; then Shawn has a conversation with Joey Aulisio as they go in deep about Red Tails, the subject of race within the movie industry, and Haywire.
