Episode 15: Rodent Wars!

Chris, Derek, Dylan, Keith, & Nicole talk for an hour and forty minutes, discussing two current comic series that focus on chivalrous rodents, and why that's really not a bad thing.

Mice TemplarBryan J. L. Glass & Michael Avon Oeming's sprawling mouse knight epic is going up against Mouse Guard, David Petersen's beautifully rendered tale of mice defending their realm. We promise, there's a larger distinction between them than a semantic minefield. Hear the crew battle it out over which book about chivalrous tiny mammals deserves to capture the hearts and minds of the comic community!

Next we have an interview with Jeremy Whitley the author of Princeless, and The Order of Dagonet. He has the first issue of Dagonet and a Princeless one-shot coming out in July, plus he's got a couple Glyph awards and Eisner Nominations under his belt. We can't wait to talk to him about where he got the inspiration for this critically acclaimed series!


Our next featured book will be Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson. Just in time for Christopher Nolan's final Batman film, we will be taking an in-depth look at the story that re-invented the Batman. It's another controversial book for the crew, so be sure to hear the raucous battle that is sure to ensue.
