Podwise, this week we've got Daredevil by Chip Zdarsky vol 5: Truth/Dare, Captain America by Ta-Nehisi Coates vol 4: All Die Young pt 1, and Sword Master vol 2: God of War on Will's docket. Steve finishes Gnomon chapter ,6 then throws in chapters 7 and 8 for good measure.

With that out of the way, in this mighty fine episode Will wades into Spider-Man: Bloodline, Strange Academy: First Class, and Avengers by Jason Aaron vol 7: Age of Khonshu. Steve jumps on Gnomon chapter 6, A New Set of Colors, and the boys talk about their adult work jobs, but like, in an interesting way.

Back to the pod: Will chewed through Immortal Hulk vol 8: The Keeper of the Door, Aero vol 2: The Mystery of Madame Huang, and Black Cat vol 3: All Dressed Up. Steve powered on for chapter 5 of Gnomon, and more delectable big data dystopia conversations with Will, plus some poetry. Here's the link to the long poem, as promised.

Back to our old tricks. Will spills the beans on Conan: Battle for the Serpent Crown, Spider-Man Noir: Twilight in Babylon, Hawkeye: Freefall, and Amazing Spider-Man by Nick Spencer vol 9: Sins Rising (all from 2020). Steve gabbed about another (short) chapter of Gnomon by Nick Harkaway, giving us plenty of time for a larger conversation on the book, and also a bonus "treat" of Alpha Flight vol 2 #6-12 (1998) and Alpha Flight and Inhumans Annual 1998.

Dimitrios Fragiskatos says he hates comics, but he can't escape them either. As a retailer, he owns Anyone Comics, as a publisher, he helped put out Access Guide to the Black Comic Book Community 2020-2021, and as a writer he co-created Millennials: You Are Special. We picked his brain about all those projects, but he proceeded to blow our mind about X-Man, then joined us for a Dawn of X big picture discussion.

Rough week for Will: first his hair caught on fire, then a friend said he wasn't a host of this podcast.

Steve kicks off the main plot of Gnomon by Nick Harkaway, and tramples through a litany of symbols and themes along the way.
