After 7 weeks off we've forgotten how to do everything. Mainly we forgot how to write up all the comics we talked about in this episode. And by we I mean Levins. Also by forgot I mean I just didn't feel like doing it ok? So up the top you've got First Things First, then we do some DC books, then Marvel and oh yeah I forgot to read my Image comics for seven weeks so don't expect much from that section. You know what we haven't forgotten though? How to make more dick jokes than any other comic book podcast on the market. And that's the Serious Issues guarantee! Enjoy!

How about 70 minutes of probing questions better?  That's exactly what this episode is! 50+ questions as asked by YOU, about comics and also lots of other things that have nothing to do with comics. This was an absolute blast to do, thanks so much to everyone who sent us a question - sorry we completely butchered the pronunciation of your surname!

It was a great week for dogs in comics this week. Especially teleporting giant dogs. And dogs who can fuse bodies with humans. Also, a great week for having sex with beautiful cat men!

Sorry we're so late! All is explained in the episode and let me tell ya if you spent even one second of this week thinking "where the heck is my new episode of Serious Issues" baby our explanation is gonna make you feel like a bad person. Speaking of bad people, Lyn is back! Just kidding she's great. Maybe she's served you at Kings Comics before, she sticks around for almost the entire episode this week to review all of last week's books! A special surprise guest shows up at the end to review the 225th issue of Savage Dragon (the special guest is Jim obviously).

This week Shinbone is replaced by two more voices in her head/Kings Comics staff - corgi expert Lyn Ngo and comic loving hoophead Wayne Hunt! Together they save Levins from the complete insanity that is hosting an entire two hour comic book review show by himself (although they strand him for the last 50 minutes of this episode). Listen carefully for a very special cameo!

Siobhan's a mum now! Congrats Shinbone (and Mr Shinbone and Shinbone Jr)! For the first week of her podcast maternity, Siobhan is replaced by the oracle of Serious Issues, the guy we always yell questions at while we record, Jim Papagrigoriou! After working at Kings Comics for more than 20 years, Jim is more than qualified to review this week's onslaught of number one issues, before leaving Levins to review 30 regular issues all by himself. Does Levins make it to the end of the episode without going completely mad? Tune in to find out.

We spent an afternoon speaking with Ryan Griffen, creator of the TV series Cleverman, which mixes the world of superheroes with stories from The Dreaming. Ryan is also the co-writer of the brand new Cleverman comic book, which we reviewed earlier this week in Episode 66.  We talk to Ryan about his comic book inspirations - and his aspirations to write comics about Aboriginal characters for Marvel and DC. We learn a few things about the second season of Cleverman and the future of the comics based on the show. This episode was made possible thanks to the support of our Patreon supporters!
