Discussion

Alca7raz and Nemesis go into a potentially dangerous topic this week: They talk about fanon. And headcanon. Yeah. That. Long time listeners may remember the last time this topic was tackled, hopefully this time they did a better job. Anyway, they go into some popular ones, some less popular ones, and a few that have been unraveled by canon. The two of them even have a few things they personally like.

Issue #27 of the main comic also came out. They have a review of that. Unfortunately, it has a few problems, and they’ll tell you all about them. Nemesis even has a theory as to why it’s disappointing. They’ll have a final verdict when issue #28 comes out.
