Angela and Kelly love to crap on the direct market, but what is it even? Angela goes into professor mode and gives a history of the direct market and how Diamond took control of all the things and became local comic shops’ lord and master. Do serials even make sense in today’s market? Is there an equivalent problem for manga? Plus, a close look at the controversy with Batman’s dick last week (that’s right, we said it).
