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.]
This episode I’m participating in Comics Theme Month on the topic of Politics in Comics. I talk about the early writings of Steve Englehart on titles like Captain America and The Avengers and how the political scandals of the seventies effected his writing and in turn his writing effected me.

Recent Reads this week:
Mmmm, another tasty lunch time episode! This episode features the follow-up to the Baltimore Comic Con episode, including a rebuttal from Melville’s Fist!
Enter the Drawerbox and Recent Reads sort of blur together into one segment with discussion on Valiant’s SOLAR and SHADOWMAN series, Marvel’s SECRET INVASION, WASTELAND from Oni Press, DC’s STARMAN Hardcover series, and a mystery series that I just can’t drop from my pull list.
Soup’s On! Get it while it’s HOT!
