Because Comics Ep. 18 - Ghost Cops, She-Devils, and One More Day

Jay and Mike recommend "Gotham By Midnight" and "Red Sonja," and then Mike leads us in an examination of the most broken Spider-Man story ever - "Spider-Man: One More Day." And then, if that weren't enough, we also discuss an issue of "Sensational Spider-Man" from around the same time that COMPLETELY contradicts the message of One More Day, and actually tells a much better story. We discuss the power of comics storytelling and the significance in relatable characters, and then we bring it all home with our game segment, "Who Am I?" Happy New Year, everyone - we'll see you in 2015!
