Want to start today with a little bit of housekeeping. I mentioned the other day that I finally figured out how to regain access to the Chris and Reggie Patreon page (in order to turn out the lights… and download all of our exclusive audio, of which there was plenty). I decided to start transitioning all of that exclusive audio to the main Chris and Reggie feed… and that starts today, with the first episode of our “off-the-cuff” Comix Tawk.
Comix Tawk was more or less Reggie and I committing some of our pre-recording “warm up” chatter to audio… only without quite as many expletives. We thought it would be fun to share some of these discussions with our Patrons, while also allowing them to see a more casual side to us. This program, along with Cosmic Treadmill: After Dark were the initial (and ultimately, only) “exclusives” we offered to our wonderful supporters.
Over the next several months, I will be sharing this “new-to-most” content… probably weekly… probably on Sundays. This will include five full-blown Cosmic Treadmills (After Dark), which will bring our total episode count for that series to a round 150.
The topic we chose to begin is one of the more contentious and controversial among the comics community… variant covers! After a look into the history of variants… we share some of our personal feelings on the “current year” glut, and how these shelf-hogs inflate the numbers on some books that might not necessarily deserve the “rub”!
What are your thoughts on variant covers?
