First Issue News

Season 2 is having some audio issues. Unfortunately we can’t go back and re-record a whole show (and we record 4 at a time). I shall look closer into the cause and hopefully get it fixed. Melissa is out for the Valiant Comics reviews since she was out of town for a couple weeks, at the time of recording.
