Cosmic Treadmill Presents… Comix Tawk, Episode #10
“Comic Scenes We Love!”
Flipping the script on our usual “Negative Nellie” Comix Tawk outings, this time out Reggie and I decided to focus on the positive… and discuss some of our very favorite scenes in all of comics.
It’s nice to sometimes remember why we still buy these things, right?

Hindsight’s a helluva thing, innit? I relistened to this episode as I was sifting through all of the old Patreon Exclusives… just ensuring there wasn’t too much in the way of profanity, and that the audio quality was there… and, man… I wish we did more shows like this one.
Being positive… and passionate about this industry that, if we’re being honest, we don’t really understand the machinations of… outside of the intrinsic capitalist qualities of “sell books, make money… sell more books, make more money”. It’s nice to sometimes take off that “analyst” hat, and just allow ourselves to, I dunno… “bask” in our fandom. Just lose ourselves in what makes/made us happy about this silliness in the first place.
Unfortunately, this is the internet… where outrage and “hot takes” are usually what folks are looking for. We’re an angry fandom… and, anger… like misery, loves company. We really should have done more episodes like this, where we celebrate what we have/had, rather than focusing on our anger over what we perceive we might’ve lost.
If you were getting fatigued over the more cynical Comix Tawk episodes… this one might be a breath of fresh(er) air!
