“…in Black Monday Murders
Hickman actually out
Hickman’s himself.”

Today on the program we discuss The Black Monday Murders by Johnathan Hickman and Tom Coker – which should be a breeze. It’s…complicated. We have an interesting time trying to explain what is actually happening. Because the Black Monday Murders can be a bit daunting for first-time readers of Hickman’s work. And the sheer wealth of information being presented to you can be overwhelming. But the story being told is rich, its world-building extensive, and with a little patience and persistence, it will reap rewards in the long term.  And it does bring up some interesting topics for discussion as well.

Also, we talk about Image employees unionizing. Hooray!

Thanks again for listening.
