God and Comics

Life and death, morality, the conscience - these are just some of the themes that come up repeatedly in the Japanese comic books known as manga. The crew is joined in this episode by Dr. Zachary Guiliano from The Living Church to discuss all the ins and outs of this fascinating form of comic book storytelling. Also, Fr. Jonathan reveals his past as a drunken, lecherous, Russian Orthodox priest. All this plus our recommendation, This or That, and a whole lot more!
