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.

This week, your host who only knows what he's doing about half the time, Eric Ratcliffe originally recorded a Doctor Who specific episode with Gordon Dymowski and Jeremy Wiggins where it was a 90 minute spectacular of nerd knowledge. Sadly, in the middle of editing that episode, the computer died and I was unable to retrieve it from the computer.

So this episode, we are on a new laptop (graciously given to our hero by his mother) while h's joined by Jeremy and Russell Burlingame for a late night edition of the podcast as the guys talk an insane amount of topics (We seriously cover a lot of ground). Everything from Christo Gage's Wildstorm to our most anticipated books for the new DCU!

So pull up a chair, put in your headphones or just hit play, and join us for another edition of the WILC podcast!!!
