Episode 2.19: Best of the Rack 2010

January 30, 2011 under Podcasts

It’s that time once again… time to see what comics managed to stay on Just Bill’s Favorite Comics Rack throughout 2010!  Which publisher leads the pack?  What previous Rack-worthy series have returned?  What new titles have graced the rack in 2010?  Listen in to find out the answers to these questions and more!

[Note: Some issues of Detective Comics featuring Batwoman also made the rack this year, but due to the fact that this episode was done TWICE, it was accidentally skipped and omitted during the actual recording.]
