What Makes Great Art

God and Comics

One of the joys of reading comics is found in the way that art interweaves with words to tell stories. In this episode, the crew talks about their favorite artists and why they love them. They also get philosophical about whether art is just something to carry on a story or a good unto itself. Plus Fr. Matt's loathing of vegetables, a superhero detective story with a very reluctant superhero, This or That, and a whole lot more.

Here's some more about some of the rad stuff we talk about:
