Why I Love Comics: The Audio Edition
Eric Ratcliffe and friends discuss all things pop culture, from comics, to movies, to video games, to music and more each week.

On this episode of the podcast, Eric does his best to fight against a cold and interview one of his favorite writers Ron Marz! The guys discuss the DC vs Marvel crossover from the 90's, Kyle's sustaining through the DC reboot, his leaving Witchblade, Artifacts becoming an ongoing series and justy so much more (including a twilight joke or two) so pull up a chair, download to your listening device or just listen on your computer to another episode of the Why I Love Comics podcast!

Slight Warning, for 10 minutes after the 20 minute mark, the audio started having issues. I fixed it the best I could but it's the only lag in the episode.

Happy New Year everyone, all the new listeners and the downloads have been amazing this year, 2012 will be a great year for the podcast!
