#116 - Multiversity Revisited
For this show, we revisit a book that Taylor talked about in episode #57: Grant Morrison's Multiversity. And though we say in the episode that it's full of spoilers, I don't think we actually spoil anything. This series is so sprawling that we can't give much away. So I say: ignore our spoiler warning and enjoy the episode. If you have read the book, this may feel like a book club. If you haven't read it, it's available to borrow on Comixology Unlimited.
Here is Taylor's suggested reading order to get into it:
The Just #1
Ultra Comics #1
That will cover everything you need for this episode and you'll enjoy going back into it afterwards.

#115 - A-Force!
Holy wow! It was quite the jump back into comics after that abbreviated Game of Thrones season. But here we are: talking comics again. Todd brings A-Force Volumes 1 and 2 from 2016 to discuss. Short version: he loved the main stories. Long version: why does Marvel put extra dumb issues in the trade paperbacks of their awesome stories?
#114 - Fantasy: why does it have rules?
Our pre-occupation with Game of Thrones and Todd's obsession with Dungeons and Dragons has led to this: a huge conversation about the templates of fantasy, why we think fantasy has "rules," and why fans are reluctant to concede that there shouldn't be any rules. We talk about so much related to this topic that it's difficult to sum up but some things to check out:
