On our last show of the year Forrest and Dave recap the news, talk about our 2020 predictions, make our picks for the week, and interview Carmen Maria Machado and artist Dani about their new Hill House Comics book The Low, Low Woods. In our interview we discuss their inspirations, why the comic book medium is right for this series, Joe Hill’s comparison of this series to David Cronenberg meets David Lynch, and why Rob Reiner is the director of in-comic-movie Sea Dogs!
In the news, we discuss the teased Free Comic Book Day 2020 titles, Wonder Woman #750 launching with over 20 covers, Spider-Woman’s new costume, Marvel Comics March 2020 solicitations surprises, the 2020 event Transformers vs. Terminator, the announced Jonathan Hickman & Mike Huddleston’s series Decorum #1 out in March, and the final issue of Doomsday Clock #12 is finally here!
