By Molly Jane Kremer and Jarrod Jones. Happy New Comic Book Day! This is Casual Wednesdays With DoomRocket, 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 share their live panel at this year’s inaugural RETCon Comic Convention here in Chicago. The panel, moderated by Jarrod, featured MJ, Eisner award-winning artist Gene Ha, ‘Rockstars’ illustrator Megan Hutchison, AV Club and Vice columnist Oliver Sava, and ‘Ladycastle’ artist Ashley A. Woods. The topic? The State of Things — as far as comics are concerned!

Don’t forget to share this podcast on the social network of your choosing, and please enjoy.
