This episode of Scotch & Comics is trying something a little bit different. This episode isn’t the result of a single evening’s “hard work” but rather a handful of books spread out over a few days, then stitched back together. (It’s fun to spend an entire evening sipping whisky and reading comic books, but sometimes it can be difficult to find five consecutive hours to set aside for that Herculean task.)
In this patchwork of an episode your intrepid host Devin R Bruce takes a tour of a wide variety of comic book stories, from Marvel and WildStorm’s World War 3 crossover, Warren Ellis’ rocketpunk adventure Ignition City, psychedelic espionage book Change, and Scott Morse’s mind-expanding Strange Science Fantasy. Wrap yourself up in the warmth of this episode of Scotch & Comics. It’s hypoallergenic and breathable, and made from 100% natural ingredients.
Boy, I hope I pronounced “Ales Kot” properly.

And all to the soothing soundtrack of a crackling fire, gentle rain, and not-so-random selections from his music library! Are you lost? In search of a true direction? Then come along on the RetreatCast and find what YOU have been searching for!
Yes, I say Supergods when I mean Supergod. I had Grant Morrison on the brain.
