Behind The Panels Issue 44 – The Last Christmas

Behind-the-Panels-issue-44-Cover-ArtIt’s the last issue for 2012, so we jingle our award bells and list our favourite books of the year: the ones by Scott Snyder and the other kind. THEN we talk about what we’ve been reading lately and amuse ourselves with our own insights. PLUS our “Santa kicks ass” pick of the week, The Last Christmas by Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn, Rick Remember and Hilary Barta.

Our next reading assignment: Ant-Man Season One by Tom DeFalco and Horacio Domingues.

Your Hosts: Richard Gray & David McVay
