  1. Great episode, guys! I mostly agree with the reviews you put out. The only book I might disagree with you on is The Authority Lost Year because I think while Brandon Badeaux is a great cinematic artist that incorporates a lot of strong detail into his artwork I also think at times he is more interested in making panels look cool and less interested in advancing the plot and telling the story. So while I agree his artwork is gorgeous by itself I don’t think its the greatest in terms of sequential storytelling. I hope to see more from him in the future, though!
