Episode 16 - Do You Ever Think What Life Would Be After You Die?

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.

Three comics from November 6, 2013. Plus your Nerd Confessions and Aaron's Inner Child.
On The Couch this week: artist and writer Becky Cloonan.

Show Notes:
Theme of the show is what happens when we die. Make no bones about it, mortality sucks. No matter where, or when, you are.

Ten Grand #5 22:09

Trillium #4 29:28
The end of everything. Well, not everything. Just humanity. But we're selfish like that.
