This week’s question inspired by this week’s Cosmic Longbox: What is your favorite comic book trial (court trial, trial by combat, etc)?

After that we’re taking your calls and discussing:

  • And who the hell is Julia Carpenter, Spider-Woman, while we’re at it.
  • Are all mutants deviants but not all deviants are mutants?
  • League of Legends Arcane on Netflix!
  • Book of Boba Fett Mandolorian?
  • Substack comics!
  • Was the Reaper a prototype for The Phantasm from Batman Mask of the Phantasm?
