by Molly Jane Kremer and Jarrod Jones. Happy New Comic Book Day! This is CASUAL WEDNESDAYS, a weekly podcast where we indulge in comics and comics-adjacent chatter. It’s another five-week month, which means MJ & Jones are scrambling for content—er, have made space for an all-new Junk Drawer Episode! On the docket: What did Brian Michael Bendis really mean by that Batman tweet? Is IDW jumping to Penguin/Random House another nail in the coffin for Diamond Distribution? How good is STARGIRL? All that and, at long last, a brand-new ‘Wizard’ flip-through!
