Comic Book Pitt Special #8 – Ricky’s Comics

Listen to this episode.

So the Duke and I recorded this kick-ass review episode last week spotlighting a bunch of new comics like Haunt, Spider Woman, Planetary, etc. We even had this great conversation about The Walking Dead, the conclusion to the ‘Fear The Hunters’ storyline and whether I was going to continue collecting the series.

Shortly after we recorded that episode, I accidentally recorded another episode, this special episode, right over it.

For the story behind “Ricky’s Comics”, you’ll have to listen, but if you want to see some of what was in said collection, click here.

(Oh, in case you’re wondering, I’m done with The Walking Dead.)
