This week, Adam and Anthony tackle a more serious topic: graphic novels about World War II era Japan. To balance out the very serious nature of thee graphic novels, they also review a comic about magic girls and butt farts.

After last week's exhausting hour and a half walk down Bendis-Crossover Lane, Adam and Anthony try to tackle the uber-smart Matt Kindt's work. Due to some, uhhh, errors, they don't even read the same books! Or was that all part of Matt Kindt's evil plan? We also discuss five number one issues, some ongoing series and some new graphic novels/trade paperback collections. There may also be a couple of unfortunate sing-alongs.
