Episode 22: The Catch-Up Pod, or why Kelly is jet-lagged

Ep 22.png

Angela and Kelly spend a week catching up on current events. Kelly talks about what she saw on her trip to Japan, including the Weekly Shonen Jump Exhibition in Tokyo and lots of ads for Golden Kamuy, and Angela catches us up on some major comics news items from the past few weeks, like the failed Deadpool cartoon and what’s going on with the Batgirl film. Plus: Kelly talks about why she hates Funko Pops and we mourn the late Isao Takahata.
