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. On the docket for the January 2022 solicits: the Kurt Busiek era of Image Comics begins and Chip Zdarsky’s Batman does, too; She-Hulk makes her gregarious green return, and we are living in the Ben Reilly-ssaince!
