Behind The Panels Issue 149 – Howard the Duck (MAX)

Behind The Panels 149 - Howard the Duck (MAX)

Behind The Panels 149 - Howard the Duck (MAX)Welcome to BEHIND THE PANELS Issue 149, the comic book show that’s only one episode away from retirement. What could possibly go wrong?

In this penultimate issue of Volume 1, The Walking Dead gets its own beer. It’s a quick few opening sips, a really long second sip, wildly inconsistent in its later gulps, but always finishes strong with a good taste in your mouth. THEN it’s Archive Vs Sharknado, Cyborg, Wolf and more in What We’ve Been Reading.

PLUS: our Kick-Ass Pick of the Week™: HOWARD THE DUCK (MAX), the mature readers mini-series featuring the foulest of water fowls. This is BEHIND THE PANELS.

Your Hosts: Richard Gray, David McVay & Dave Longo
