By Molly Jane Kremer and Jarrod Jones. Happy New Comic Book Day! This is Casual Wednesdays With DoomRocket, a podcast series where each week we discuss our feelings concerning the comics that mean the most to us, and the industry news that affects us all. This week, MJ & Jarrod bid 2016 a boozy farewell by discussing their favorite (and not-so favorite) books, events, and people of the year! It’s a big undertaking, so they brought DoomRocket contributing writer Arpad Okay along for the ride.
Don’t forget to share this podcast on the social network of your choosing, and please enjoy.
