066 - PROG 2000, INDIE SUPERHEROES AND MORE!

This week Vince, Dan and Tony let loose and talk comics and more. The two main topics of conversation this year are the epic event that was the release of 2000AD issue 2000 and a discussion on Dan Butcher's article '5 things I don't want to see in YOUR indie superhero comics'. It's a fun fuelled discussion that digresses in the best kind of ways. There's talk about essential reading for writers, 80s movies, hints of plans to come for the show and plenty of silly NSFW humour (stay tuned for some revealing out takes too). Don't miss it!
