In this, the tenth episode of Scotch and Comics, many questions are raised. Such as: What do a 1970s British cop series, a beloved grandma, and Teacher’s Highland Cream have in common? Which Hernandez brother draws the best smashed-up cars? What comic book can get your intrepid host absolutely (in his own words) JAZZED? And what gives him the right to lay down the law when it comes to the Justice Society? It’s a trip through a wide selection of comics, from Mark Waid’s first story on The Flash, to Remender & Opena’s take on The Punisher, to Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon, to the indie classic Love & Rockets, and DC’s new Earth 2 series. Five Scotch-fueled diatribes and five energetic musical breaks: ten reasons to listen to Scotch & Comics!
