Discussion

This week, Nemesis and Alca7raz do something a bit different. We’re in the middle of con season, right? So they decide to talk about making your convention experience the best it can be.

After that, they also have the finale to the “Reflections” arc to talk about, so they briefly discuss issue #20 of the comic series. Just what did each of them think of it? Was it a satisfactory conclusion or not?
