BAMF talks about when comics tackle ’serious issues’ and the new comic Stray

• November 4th, 2014
On this very special episode of the BAMF podcast, we talk about "relevancy comics" - ie when superhero comics weigh in on social issues and how it's been done well sometimes and perhaps not so well at other times.
Also we hear from artist Sean Izaakse and writer Vito Delsante all about the new comic Stray - which is something of an homage to the Speedy/Nightwing sidekicks of yore and Vito's other project: World War Mob (which is a great comic you should be reading)
Jason Tondro, Walt Robillard and Ennie Award winner Christopher McGlothin co-host. 
AND - Chris fills us in on his upcoming villains project for the Mutants and Masterminds RPG.
