Drunk on Comics Podcast 178: Armpit Stuff
Tony, Derek, Linz and Adam started off with the most awkward of tangents in this episode. From exploring new areas that are not sexy at all, they followed up throughout the podcast with even more absurd reasons why armpits are great. But while they drank a bunch of wine this weekend, they had a few great conversations revolving around comics.

The great ending of time travel, krypton and the advancement of mankind makes this book an amazing read.
Vertigo may or may not be making books just to get a TV adaption. But from the looks of things, this may be true. There was also great talk about Jem the comic book, and not the terrible movie. They also put their thoughts to what the best superhero family would be to visit on Thanksgiving.
