Episode 22 - Escape Into The Dark

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.

Three comics from December 18, 2013. Plus your Nerd Confessions about endings (character deaths and series finales) and Aaron's Inner Child. Probably.
On The Couch this week: writer Simon Oliver.

Show Notes:
Theme of the show is the final countdown, escaping into the dark, fading to black, leaving on a jet plane, going out in a blaze of glory. You get the idea. It's the end. We're saying goodbye to three comics - two minis and an epic series - that are concluding this week. No crying, just drinking. Well, for Aaron anyway. #slurredcast
