Episode 023: Philistines! All of 'em!

Modest audio trouble be damned! We’ve got an awesome guest with us in the great and wonderful Shawn Pryor from Action Lab Comics and the PKD Black Box podcast. Shawn is not only a great friend and a great guy, he’s the man with the plan at Action Lab and he’s gonna tell us all about it. Then we talk about all kinds of great stuff, including: how much we miss Bronze Age storytelling, a little bit of inside baseball, talkin’ about philistines, Roy Lichtenstein, the importance of cake, Bill Cosby, Alfredo Alcala, Bob Kanigher, anthologies, comic book movies, Comic Book Comics, Blacksad, The Centurians, Don Heck, West Coast Avengers, Bob Hall, and lots and lots more!
