The Young Podawans Ep. 18 – Geek 101: Comics!

This week we’re taking you to school! It’s Comics 101! We chat about comic publishers, continuity, fandom, movies, pretty much everything you can think of! Plus a list of some of the must read comics for new readers and rambley tangent about how manga used to be published in the US. Classic Podawans!
